In terms of growth and economic development, where would you like to see Southern Indiana in 10 years?
I would like to see our community continue to grow and compete as an emerging market while maintaining our small-town values. Southern Indiana has an incredible culture that is diverse, unique and forward thinking. I want to continue to see us be a better place to LIVE.WORK.PLAY.
Who or what motivates you?
The desire to be better: being a better person, being a better company, creating a better environment for my community.
What habits/routines have helped with your success?
I have a habit of always changing things. My staff knows it and expects it from me. I am never satisfied and always think we can do better at everything. I think the constant pursuit of perfection is a motivator and has helped us continue to grow as a company.
What pushes you through your most difficult times?
I constantly remind myself of the hard times I have experienced and the fact that they all fade in to the past. I always focus on what’s in front of me that I can control and not the things in the past that I cannot.
What are you most proud of professionally?
The easiest question of all – my people! They are everything to me. Without them I would not be where I am today. Every past and current employee has helped us become the company we are today. We are arc!
