History: I started working with everyone at LETS about 9 years ago, and in that time a lot has changed. I have grown as a person, as worker, and as a friend. Most important though, after so many years these men and women have taken on a different light. They no longer are Lee, Stan, or Nick. They have become my family and my friends. Through the hard times and the Good times, I know I work with people who truly genuinely care about each other, and me.
So, what is my Passion? I guess to summarize it, to make those around me happy. I also would like to have good work for my hands… and because I have good work, I get to live a life that is happy and fulfilling. My work is my joy, and it makes me feel accomplished. So, I am passionate about what I do here at LETS, and I love these people.
