What are the best skills you bring to the HIGHFILL team?

​My CAD skills, hometown knowledge, and a fresh perspective.

What personal or professional activities/involvement are you most passionate about?

I'm most passionate about helping others problem solve. Earlier in my career, I worked in land development and site layouts, which required some creativity and a bunch of design changes to appease all parties. I enjoyed the whole process of working as a team to find the perfect layout.

When I'm not working, I enjoy…

snow skiing or sitting on a beach (whichever the weather permits).

Where did you receive your education? 

The University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

What is something about you that might surprise most people?

I can't burp.

I'm known around the office for…

bringing people together, always making lunch plans, and rarely having a free weekend.

What is your Spirit Animal?

When I ran hurdles in high school, I was called Gazelle. I was told that's my spirit animal and I'm sticking with it.
