1.) What is your position and role at Gillette? I am an Orthotist and Supervisor in the Assistive Technology department at Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare.
2.) Do you have a favorite Gillette story or memory? Shortly after starting with Gillette, I saw a family having their picture taken (smiling from ear to ear) in front of the Gillette Children’s sign. I don’t know what their child’s difficulties were, but I do know that the family was very happy to be at Gillette, because they knew they were at the place that could best help their child. This moment sums up the reason why I work at Gillette.
3.) What are some of your hobbies outside of work? Snowmobiling, boating, listening to music, watching football, home improvement projects (I know, I’m crazy!), and spending time with my family.
4.) Do you have any children or pets? I have 2 children: Ronan is 5 ½ and just started kindergarten (she hates it!), and Axel just turned 2 and loves to ride his 4-wheeler (he calls it his “4-leeleler”).
5.) If you could travel anywhere, where would you go? I’ve always wanted to go to Lake Tahoe. Snowmobiling and boating in the same day sounds like paradise to me!
6.) What is one fun fact about you? Throughout high school, my nickname was “Jordan.” I received the nickname from my football coach after first refusing to cut my hair (I really liked 80’s hairbands at the time. The problem was that this was the mid 90’s). Later I shaved it all off to spite him. To my surprise, he actually liked it and said I reminded him of Michael Jordan!
