“I believe this is a practical world and that I can count only on what I earn. Therefore, I believe in work – hard work.” – Dr. George Petrie (1943)
Are you a pessimist, optimist or realist and why do you think it helps you make the decisions you make?
I alternate between being and optimist and a realist. However, I am more of a realist because it is better to know the current circumstances of a situation and find realistic ways to solve problems while maintaining a positive attitude.
Which one of the 4 Core Values do you identify with the most and why?
I identify with being a servant the most because that is one of the main reasons I wanted to go into this industry. I want to better the lives of other by bettering the infrastructure that sustains them.
What is something that your co-workers would be surprised to learn about you?
I have only flown once and it was in a 1959 Bonanza V-Tail with some friends. We only flew for a day trip for lunch, turning what would be a 2.5 hour trip into 10 minutes.
