Inside The Mind Of...

  • What does "A Brighter Way" mean to you? We provide service that is second to none.
  • Why do you choose to work at Rea? It seems like no two days are alike.
  • What is your favorite aspect of your job? That my job duties vary so much from day to day. This keeps things interesting.
  • Describe your work style. Adaptable and flexible. I am sometimes pulled in many directions and am working on many projects at the same time. I have to be adaptable and flexible to succeed.

Just For Fun:

  • What did 10-year-old you want to be when you grew up? I think I wanted to be a firefighter or a police officer.
  • What is the number one reason you would hire you? I am dependable and I have a great ability to adapt.
  • What was your first job? I worked for an accounting co-op in college at Cinergy (currently Duke Electric, previously Cincinnati Gas and Electric Company).
I provide advice that individuals and companies rely upon.
