One : How did your career path bring you to LT?

I graduated from college and started sending out resumes and attending job fairs when OneStar hired me to work at Toyota for a summer. Lieberman soon bought my department from OneStar and I’ve been here ever since.

Two : What’s your favorite thing about working at LT?

One of my favorite things about working at LT is having a solid team to work with. They are dependable, knowledgeable and always willing to share the resources and time required to get the job done.

Three : Tell us about yourself.

I grew up in Western Kentucky and spent a lot of time running the woods and fields around my parents little farm. I used to pull fish out of a neighbor’s pond in the summer and deer out of the woods in the fall. Winter involved getting up early to break the ice so the cattle could drink and the occasional tree felling if our firewood supply began to run low. I have five sisters and one brother.

Four : What does life look like away from the office?

When time permits I like hunting, fishing and shooting but spending time with my family is my primary occupation.
