"I’ve watched my stepfather work in the health insurance industry for many years. I always admired how much he loved helping people and giving peace of mind to those without. Aflac is an opportunity to do just that and allows me to be there for my community, friends and family."
Tell me a little about yourself?
"I was born and raised in Farmington, New Mexico around the oil and gas industry. I was heavily involved in sports and the outdoors as a kid and into my adult life as well. Broncos Football, Red Sox Baseball and fishing are my biggest passions. I have received bachelor’s degrees in business administration and musical theatre. I was on a national tour in 2013, which allowed me to achieve one of my biggest dreams to perform on Broadway. I’ve also worked in Los Angeles on several television shows on the production side, but the Four Corners region was beckoning me back, which led me back to Durango and my current journey with Aflac."
What do you like to do for fun?
"People think I’m crazy for loving yard work, but it truly is great therapy and something I really enjoy doing. Although, if the weather is right and I have the time, fly-fishing is something I try to do as much as I can. When I’m not doing either of those, spending time with family and watching the Broncos or Red Sox is something I love doing."
If you could HAVE ONE super power, what would it be and how would you use it?
"I think telekinesis would be my top power. The possibilities would be endless and the amount of good I could do for others, would be infinite. Plus, not having to go up and down stairs to change the laundry would be a huge bonus."
What is the greatest bit of advise a parent or mentor has given you?
"My grandfather was a great man with the biggest heart. He taught me many things about respect and honor as kid. He believed that if you had money to spare, to always do as much good as you can. He was a major leader in the community and he was filled with love and joy like I’ve never seen in another person. Although he is no longer with me, I still live everyday like he is watching me and I try to be the best version of him as much as I can."
