Where did you grow up?

Southern Maryland – Charles County area

What originally attracted you to joining Everest?

I have a business administration degree with a concentration in finance from Towson University, so I looked for an internship in the area. I interview with several places, but Everest was the most impressive to me. The team is top notch and I knew that if I wanted to learn (which I did), then Everest was the right place for me. I began as an intern and worked hard enough to impress management, leading to a job offer, which I took without thinking twice—I’ve been here ever since.

What do you like most about working at Everest?

The people. The ability to help better someone’s life. Our team and interactions with clients and new people.

What are your favorite pastimes?

Spending time with family and friends, automotive, boating, fishing, hunting and photography.

Favorite food/cuisine?


What is something most people do not know about you?

I am a Pittsburgh Steelers fan. It doesn’t always get brought up, being that I live in the Baltimore area. It makes it a little tough.
