I am a Memphis native. I grew up in Germantown and went to Christian Brothers High School. I enjoy backpacking, fishing, and aviation. I try to visit one National Park every year.
Can you talk a little about your internship and your current position?
I had the opportunity of having two internships at ServiceMaster. One at Terminix, as a Marketing Intern, and the second at American Home Shield with the Financial Planning and Analysis Team. I am currently a finance LDP with my first rotation in corporate FP&A.
What is your favorite part about living in Memphis?
Memphis is growing fast and I love being a part of that. Each month, there is something new and upcoming in Memphis such as restaurants, concerts, and social events. Also, I live downtown so walking everywhere is awesome.
What attracted you to ServiceMaster originally as an intern? What attracted you to stay?
I love the people and the corporate culture. My intern experience was incredible. Everyone I interacted with made sure my questions were answered or introduced me to someone who could. I interacted with high level management such as directors and vice presidents which shows that they value my time as well. I felt like my voice was heard. I felt comfortable with the company and took the fulltime job in a heartbeat.
What does a typical day look like for you?
Rise and grind. Repeat.
What was your first impression of the new building?

What has been the most challenging part for you in the transition to a full-time employee?
Trying to focus on work during the World Cup.
What has been your most memorable moment during your time here?
Working and meeting with new people.
