What do you like best about your job?
Working with the stellar professionals at Worktank!

How do you like to spend your time outside of the office?
Snowskiing and sailing are my favorite activities, and spending time with my two daughters - I have one in high school and the other starting college at WSU. Go Cougars!

If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
I would like to be able to read minds. I'd like to be able to help people with what they need, want and desire, and to know what they are thinking about or are worried about, before they even say it out loud.
