Credentials: Chief Operating Engineer, EPA Certified, CPO
Office or Location: I start the days out at Brainerd Maple Street location, but my work takes me to all the locations.
Hire Year: I was hired in May of 2022
Trained in: My areas that I’ve had training include the following: pneumatics, blueprint reading, construction management, energy management systems, computerized maintenance management systems implementation and administration, water quality management, commercial roofing, welding, boilers, major appliance repair, pools and spas, indoor air quality and many others. My previous job required that I have working knowledge about virtually everything to do with physical plant operations, and it was in a health care setting.
Works with clients ages: My job is not so much working directly with clients, rather it is my role to support the staff who ARE trained to work with the clients. It is my goal to facilitate an environment that is code compliant and as positive as it can be, and thus the clients experience should benefit from that.
What do you like about your job? The things I like most about my job are that I like challenges, setting up systems, knowing I’ve left things better for the next person.
At Northern Pines I like the fact that I work for a non-profit, which is helping people, solving problems, and making things better than when arrived.
Likes or hobbies: My favorite things to do are fishing, hiking, home improvement, snowshoeing, and playing my piano and singing, both at home and out at karaoke.
