What do you love to do outside of work?

Outside of work you can find me on the golf course, playing recreational sports, and spending as much time as possible enjoying the outdoors whether that be hiking with my dog, or fishing the Chesapeake Bay.

What do you love most about being part of WMS?

I love the team environment!  Each day at WMS I get the opportunity to learn from and collaborate with talented individuals. Through this deep collaboration, it has given me the opportunity to build great relationships which I am most grateful for.

What is your most memorable travel experience?

My most memorable travel experience has been traveling to Charelston Lake as kid with my family. Charelston Lake is one of the many lakes located in Ontario, CA and was one my family vacationed to each summer.  Without cell service (at the time) it was a great opportunity to spend time with family, fish, and enjoy the outdoors.
