In 2009 I worked my first manufacturing/warehouse job as a production operator. During my orientation the trainer told me "never do more than you have to do, otherwise it'll be expected of you going forward". That moment was the opening of my future in management simply because I disagreed with my trainer's "advice". I wanted to be successful and prove that I am worthy of greater responsibility. I personally look at a job as an opportunity to make a difference in my life and others. The company I started with in manufacturing/warehousing expanded to a suburb outside of Atlanta, GA. During that time I was promoted into management at the new facility then eventually took measures in my own hands to further my management education at Georgia Piedmont Technical College. I spent countless and restless hours working and going to school but, it was an opportunity of a lifetime and has lead me to where I am at today. I am blessed to have an opportunity to provide for my family, so I need to be all that is expected of me to make ends meet. The greatest joy and blessing from God is my family. There is nothing more important in life than spending quality time with my wife and son. Working at NACS has made it possible to have a healthy work/life balance.
