What is your favorite thing about Keystone?

What is a fun fact about yourself?
I started this industry at just 17 years old. I have spent my entire adult life around street sweeping and leaf collection equipment. My father, who started in the industry in the 1980’s came home one day and told me he had gotten me a job interview. Twenty years later, I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. I have made some amazing friends and family along the way (including meeting my husband there) and gained a unique passion. Thanks Dad!
What do you like to do in your free time?
I enjoy spending free time with my family! We love going to the beach, taking trips to the river, boating, fishing, anything on the water and anything outdoors!

Somewhere on a beach! Nothing beats sunshine and the sound of the ocean.
What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Don’t let your fear of change, keep you from reaching for your dreams!
