Dedication, hard work and living up to COE core values.

How has COE helped you to get where you are?

I am always pushed to be my best.

What goals do you want to achieve and how can COE help get you there?

Personal and operational growth. My goal every day I come to work is to make COE better, and I ask my staff to do the same. Being able to continue to work during this pandemic has been a tremendous relief for me and my family.

What is your favorite part of our employee engagement programs at COE and why?

Just the fact that COE has them. Not many companies put so much effort into helping and growing their employees.

What are you most excited for when it comes to our Penguin partnership?

Being able to engage with a world class organization and trade ideas, philosophies and core values is a huge advantage.

What COE value do you think you’re the strongest in and why?

I strive to live them all every day, but sometimes we as individuals fall short. I believe the most in TEAMWORK! Although we all have titles, they all go away when its time to get the job done and satisfy our customers. We help each other and support each other.
