Do you have any certifications or degrees?

I have a BA in Business Management and a BSAS in Sociology.


How long have you worked at Knight Security Systems and why have you chosen to work here?

I have been with Knight Security Systems for 15 years. When I started, I was looking for a small company that I could help grow and realize their business goals. That's what brought me to Knight. I was intrigued by the business model and core values that can still be seen today across every department from Sales and Design to Install and Service.


What has been your favorite memory/achievement while working at Knight Security Systems?

Over my 15 years of experience with Knight I have made many great memories. But my favorite Knight experience was when the president of the company followed me while I was delivering a bid to make sure I didn't break down on the way.


What do you enjoy most about your role?

What I enjoy most about my role within Knight is the opportunity to meet with our customers to better understand their business and how Knight Security can help.


What do you like to do in your spare time?

In my spare time I like to enjoy the simpler things. Relaxing, having a couple beers and watching sports are some of my favorite ways to spend my time off.


What are some of your hobbies?

Some of my hobbies include camping, fishing and sporting events.


What are your favorite Turkey Day food and dessert?

My favorite Thanksgiving food is turkey with homemade dressing and my favorite Turkey Day dessert is pecan pie a la mode (with a scoop of ice cream!)


What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

The best piece of advice I have ever received is: "You never know what others are going through in their personal lives, so always be humble and kind."
