How long have you been an employee at Elecsys?
If you could pick one of your job activities or a recent project to describe as special, what would it be and why?
I really enjoy being part of two special initiatives at Elecsys. I am a member of the Change Agent Team, as well as the Diversity and Inclusion Council. Both of these initiatives offer me the ability to contribute to the top-notch culture at Elecsys. Elecsys really embraces the change mindset, and is always looking for new ways to make sure all employees feel included and valued.
What is something on your bucket list that you have not checked off yet?
I have always wanted to visit Switzerland to experience Lake Geneva, Lucerne, and the Swiss Alps
What is on fan fact about yourself?
I can mirror write. Mirror write is when you start at the right side of the page and write backwards, with the letters flipped, so that when held up to a mirror the writing reads normally. Leonardo DaVinci often used mirror writing on his personal notes.
What is your idea of a great day?
Winter is my favorite season! A great day for me is a Sunday at home with the fireplace on, snow falling outside, drinking cocoa, and watching a Chiefs game with my family.
Would you rather be able to speak any language or be able to communicate with animals?
Speak any language, for sure!
If you could time travel, where would you like to travel to?
I would love to travel to the 1870's/1880's. As a child, I was obsessed with Little House on the Prairie and Laura Ingalls Wilder. It would be neat to see the settler/pioneer era up close and personal. There's something about covered wagons and tiny schoolhouses that captures my attention.
When it comes to snacks, do you prefer salty or sweet? List your favorite treat.
Salt. Popcorn is one of my favorites!
