My personal Philosophy is to strive to be the best at anything you do. If you really enjoy what you’re doing whether it be personal, professional or both you should always give 100%.

What is your favorite aspect of working at Melink?

My favorite aspect of working at Melink would have to be all of the cities I have been able to travel to. I find it very fulfilling being able to see all the different parts of the country and try different types of food from each.

In my time off I like to do anything that involves a sport. If it can be played on the beach, even better!
