 1. How would you describe EAG?

A great group of people who support one another in order to provide our clients the best experience possible.


2. What has been one of your proudest moments working at EAG?

Knowing the hours and work me and my team put in create successful project outcomes makes me proud.


3. What advice do you have for prospective candidates that want to join EAG?

My advice for prospective candidates would be to come in ready to learn and collaborate. When I joined EAG, I not only received valuable tools to learn our internal procedures but also benefited greatly from the mentorship of my peers.


4. What’s one thing – either industry-related or not – you learned in the last month?

I learned the importance of peering beneath the surface of things, looking at what is underneath is key to fully understanding what is going on.


5. What do you like to do in your free time? Any favorite places you like to visit?

In my free time, I like to do home projects and go out on daytrips around Texas.


6. Tell us something that might surprise us about you.

While I may not consider myself particularly surprising, I have a passion for cars that often catches people off guard. From admiring classic models to staying updated on the latest automotive technology.


7. How do you balance your career with other priorities?

Just have to chip away at the small stuff. Getting big projects around the house requires breaking them down into small tasks that can be completed either after work or during the weekend.


8. Who or what inspires you and why?

I find inspiration in continuous learning. The opportunity to expand my knowledge and skills motivates me every day.


9. What is your life motto or favorite quote?

My life motto is guided by Murphy’s law. Whatever can happen will happen, I take this into consideration when determining risks and consequences. While it often takes me down the rabbit hole of “what-ifs”, it also allows me to plan in case things go wrong.


10. What’s your superpower?

I have a knack for problem-finding. Uncovering discrepancies and then troubleshooting issues, I thrive on the challenge of finding solutions and making things right.
