Senior Site Selection Manager

Really good at: Gathering pertinent details – not just asking questions, but asking the right questions

Known for: If I have two or more data points on any given subject, chances are good I’ve put them into a spreadsheet

Loves: My dogs!

Guilty as charged: Sharing lots (and lots) of lost & found dog posts on Facebook, referencing back to see if any of the “found” match any of the “lost”
