Assistant Manager - Caldwell

I graduated from Eastern Oregon University in 2014. I moved to Boise in 2019, the same year I joined Gem State Staffing. When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife, two children, and friends, particularly grilling in the summer. Watching soccer and football is also one of my favorite pastimes.
