Where is your hometown? “I was born in California, Calaveras County, but I’ve lived here since I was 9, so I consider Craig to be my hometown.” When did you first move to Craig? “It was either 1999 or 2000. My mom met my stepdad around then, they tied the knot and we moved out here.” Motto or outlook on life? “Follow God and give him the glory.” When did you first get started in your job? “I started here May 15, so it’s only been a month-and-a-half. I’ve worked at Kum & Go, Kmart, City Market, MJK, just a lot of summer jobs around town. Then I got this opportunity for a career in sales, and I took it. When I was in high school, I was on the DECA team, and so I’m excited I get to use that training in real life.”
