What is your favorite part or your job? 
The best part of my job is working with people and developing relationships. These relationships give me a deep understanding of people’s needs and wants and this helps me deliver better and more fulfilling services to them…that is job satisfaction.

What is your key to success?
Working with a caring attitude no matter how tough the issue or problem. Always follow through and deal with each issue, big or small.

Do you have any hobbies or activities of interest? What are they?
I love the outdoors. I am an avid archer and love to bow hunt. Fishing and hunting are my favorite hobbies but I also love all types of sports; golfing, baseball, soccer, etc.

If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?
Canada, especially the western provinces, British Columbia or Alberta. Rich in beautiful, pristine, spectacular outdoor scenery.

What is one of your favorite quotes?
This may not be a quote but more of a philosophy given to me by my Grandmother who raised me. She was from Hungary and she taught me to put the letters "ing" behind verbs to give them (the word) more strength. She also said to live by these words!

Care................Caring
Love................Loving
Understand........Understanding
Serve...............Serving
She did not know much about grammar but she did know about how to make your actions more meaningful. Anyone can care about something but are you caring? Anyone can love but are you loving? Anyone can understand something but are you understanding? 
 
What was your favorite food when you were a child?
I loved hot dogs! To this day I love the hot dogs especially on the hot rollers at most gas stations---- Speedways Hot Dogs are the BEST!!!
 
Name one short term goal?
Continue planning for our new construction (Twin Lakes Expansion); many pieces of the plan keep moving and changing. Coming to fruition will be exhilarating!
 
Best advice anyone has given you?
My Uncle told me one time that you should never look back; keep moving forward.
 
Describe yourself in three words?
Enthusiastic - Understanding - Caring
 
What is your favorite hangout spot in Cincinnati?
Anywhere with friends! It is not about the place but about the people you're with!
