How would you describe your job at Polyco?
I primarily work on improving the performance of Sigmabond. Making a product that customers are satisfied with allows us to build good, long-term relationships. I’m very proud of that.
What do you like most about working at Polyco?
The opportunity to be creative and get support for my ideas.
Where do you call home?
I live in Dallas, Texas and have lived here for the past eight years.
What do you like to do when you’re not at work?
Lately, I’ve been very motivated to do some gardening in my backyard. It gets extremely hot here in the summer, so I’m trying to do more now.
What’s your favorite food?
I like a good prime steak cooked medium. I’m a meat lover!
