Biggest guilty pleasure: Espresso … I have 3 young kids that are very active, the extra boost is needed to help me keep up.
Best perk of my job: The best part of a start-up is in watching it grow and having the ability to create jobs and provide opportunities to add to our team; I work with great people and enjoy being able to provide stable employment opportunities.
How should Springfield retain young professionals: Springfield is a great place to raise a family and that message should be shared with young professionals looking to start a career and build a family. We have good restaurants, lots of outdoor activities and entertainment options, stable business environment in varying fields and excellent Midwestern people. Springfield feels like a small town with the amenities of a large city.
