Tell us a little about yourself?
My wife and I have two children, both of whom are boys ages 13 and 16. I am very simple in life and easy going. I have been in the safety field for more than 15 years, and I learned by being in the trenches and working alongside those I intended to help.
What made you want to go into a career in Safety & Risk Management?
I love having the opportunity to help others in times of need. The stratification of trying to prevent work-related injuries makes me feel like I am making a difference and ensuring everyone gets back to their loved ones, the way they walked into work.
What attracted you to Johnson Service Group?
The opportunity to be an integral part of a safety team. With my previous employers, I was a one-man-band. Also, I enjoy the challenges and obstacles that arise with a company that has thousands of contractors in the field.
What will your main responsibilities be as a member of our Safety Team?
My main responsibilities include managing claims and incidents, as well as keeping all departments informed of any changes with their affected employees.
What do you like to do for fun outside of work?
My family and I enjoy hiking and fishing. I also like to fix anything and everything that is broken. I tend to refer myself as a “jack of all trades, master of none.” When I have free time and the weather is warm, I like to do woodwork. For example, I make plaques with inspirational messages and build furniture.
