We worked directly with COVID positive and suspected patients during the first few weeks of the pandemic in our area.
I graduated from Fort Cherry High School.

What was the last thing you were really excited about?
I am excited for the summer weather, so I can enjoy some coffee time on the porch with my wife.
What is your favorite snack?
My favorite food is pizza, with ice cream being a strong second!
What would be your ideal vacation, after we are back to “normal”?
I would very much like to travel through Europe. The European countries seem so interesting.
What’s one of your best “my co-workers are awesome” story?
I honestly think my co-workers are pretty great everyday. I get along well with everybody, and feel like I can count on any of them at anytime for help with whatever I need.
What do you want people to know about the COVID-19 pandemic?
COVID-19 is obviously very serious. While it has not been as bad in our area, I would encourage everyone to follow our state guidelines. Wear your masks! I know that it is not the most comfortable thing, but it the easiest way to protect yourself and others. Hang in there!
