1. How long have you been with NRE? or How long have you been in the RR industry?
I have been with NRE for 10 years. I worked as an Engine Builder in the engine shop at our Mt. Vernon facility. In March of 2021 I transferred to the Paducah plant.

2. What do you do for NRE? 
I am currently the Leadman in the wheel shop at Paducah.

3. What do you enjoy most about your job? 
What I enjoy the most about this job is when a finished product leaves, I can look at that piece of equipment and know that I played a part in the process of building/rebuilding it. I believe the best reward a person can receive from their job is the pride in seeing the fruits of their labor.

4. What makes NRE special? 
NRE provides an opportunity for people that want to work in a skilled trade to do so. At the same time people who want to learn a trade can start here and learn the skills that are needed to do these jobs.

5. What are your hobbies? 
My hobbies are hunting, fishing, grilling, and spending time with my family. I have also taken up golf since moving to Paducah.
