WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ASPECT OF YOUR JOB?

My favorite aspect of my job is the constant day to day challenges with variable products, customer needs, evolving markets, and costing and pricing.

HOW DID THE CLASS FURTHER YOUR CAREER?

The class allowed me the opportunity to have steady work in the sawmill business and led to

the opportunity to start in a supervisory position at a sawmill, then kiln operations and finally

buying and selling green and kiln dried lumber.

WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT OCCUPATION?

I am currently the Chief Lumber Pilit at Quality Hardwoods; managing yard, kilns,

purchasing and sales. I have a great group of experienced people who make the job a pleasure.
