Inside The Mind Of...

  • What does "A Brighter Way" mean to you? Choose to be positive and always look to improve
  • What line of The Rea Way describes you the best? Choose to be positive, every day. There are many things in my job I can't control. This is one I can.
  • What "bright idea" do you find yourself sharing over and over? Add value to each and every client encounter you are involved in.

Just For Fun:

  • What did 10-year-old you want to be when you grew up? A dentist
  • What makes you get out of bed every day? My wife, she says "get out, get out"
  • What is your most prized possession? At this point in my life, it's my 401(k)
I strive to add value to each and every client engagement.
