First Job:

As a kid I did a lot of landscaping, baled hay, babysat, worked as an electrician’s apprentice, etc., but I think my first job with a pay stub was making sandwiches at Mr. Goodcents.

Favorite paid holiday:

I would have to say it is a tie between St. Paddy’s Day and the Fourth of July, but Thanksgiving is a close runner-up.

Favorite Job:

I am doing it right now!

Favorite workday lunch spot:

Flying Horse Taproom, I love to keep it local and support other Kansas City-based companies.
