5 Questions:

What do you love most about working at FLL?

The thing I love most about working at Floyd Lee Locums would be the family atmosphere that we have here. I love how everyone works as a team, encourages and praises one another, and is always willing to jump in and help each other out.

Favorite Quote?

“When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, ‘I used everything you gave me’.”
– Erma Bombeck

What are you most passionate about?

I am most passionate about my family. We love to travel, and just spend time together. As I get
older, I cherish any time that I get to spend with my family. Any chance that Sean and I get to go out of town, we take it!

Tell us something unique about yourself.

I was a competitive dancer growing up, and my parents’ attic is full of trophies that I won at
competitions throughout middle school and high school. But what most people don’t believe
about me is that I love to hunt and fish… I am a great marksman with a gun!

What is your best advice?

My best advice is to work hard, think outside of the box, take time for yourself (and your
family), and always love what you do! Some days will be more challenging than others, but we
are blessed in every way to work for an amazing company with even more amazing people.
