How many years have you been at Breda?
I have been with Breda for 12 long, rewarding years. Their commitment to making their company feel like a family is what has kept me around for so long- and I look forward to many more years of success.
What Role Model Do You Admire and Why?
I would have to say Morgan Freeman. He grew up in Tennessee and came from an humble start. Yet, he preserved and is a prime example of how everyone, with a little bit of hard work and determination, can achieve anything they set their mind to. Not to mention, Freeman is an amazing actor as well.

Go Dawgs! The Georgia Bulldogs, of course!

Dry roasted peanuts.
Best Piece of Advice You Have Ever Recieved?
The best advice I ever received was to never settle. “Never settle and always keep striving for the things you want out of life.”
What is the One Thing You Could Never Live Without?
My kids are my world. They bring so much joy and purpose to my life, I can’t imagine life without them. And don’t want to.
What are Three Words That Best Describe You?
Loyal, Genuine, Caring.
What Does Your Job Role Entail at Breda?
My prime responsibility at Breda is to provide peace of mind to the clients we serve. My job is to do routine servicing that keeps household insects out of the homes of families across northeast Georgia. It is my job to ensure that the home is pest free and that the products I use are safe for homeowners, their children, and their pets.
What Does Your Average Day Look Like?
My day starts at 8:00 am, when I begin making stops at homes in the area for pest control, maintenance, and evaluation. I usually end my day around 5:00 pm after completing an average of 8 stops a day.
Favorite Moment That's Happened While Working at Breda
One time, I received an email from a client telling me how much they appreciated my hard work. The email went on to say that the kids and dogs love when I come to provide pest control service at their residence and that I have become part of their family. It can’t get any better than that!
