How long have you worked for Persevere?
Since December 2022
Where are you originally from?
What do you love most about your job?
I love the idea that in some small way I may have a small part of changing someone’s life forever. Helping someone see the positive things in their life has been part of my life for a long time. Now I get paid to do something I love. I have always felt attracted to helping someone who just needs to be pushed over the finish line.
As soon as I saw some information on Persevere I felt attracted to the company. I have had the opportunity to speak to men’s groups from time to time and one of the last talks I gave the title of it was Perseverance. I took that as a positive and applied.
This is kind of hard for me because I changed ideas many times. I went from wanting to be a cowboy, to a professional motorcycle racer and many more in between.
The best piece of advice I have ever been give is ” find something you love to do and do it for the rest of your life”. That was given to me by my uncle when I graduated high school.
My perfect day is easy to describe. Any day that I am alive is a perfect day.
This is a hard question for me to answer, because I don’t feel completely satisfied with anything I have accomplished.
Gone in 60 seconds is my favorite movie.
