Position: Support Supervisor
Been with InMotion Hosting since: October 2013

How did you get started in the web hosting field?
I had experience in intranets from my accounting and tax practice. After selling the business, I acquired a job with my family as a webmaster. In that position I started using Joomla! in the Mambo days. I also developed and co-authored some components for that Joomla. Eventually it spawned into a business that provided Joomla support and services. Doing the development work gave me exposure to web hosting which I found to be very exciting.

What is your current role at InMotion Hosting? What do you like most about it?
I am the Third Shift Support Supervisor. I love working third shift.  The team is smaller than the other shifts so it feels like a close family.  We tend to communicate more face to face rather than via a messaging system.  We are constantly looking out for and helping each other so we can thrill our customers.

Coolest gadget you own, want to own or have read about?
My Android phone, LG3.  I am lost without it.

What would you like to tell us about yourself?
I love my job at InMotion Hosting. I moved up quickly in the company.  I plan on staying with InMotion until retirement.

Describe your personality in one word?
Mature.
