What does this honor most mean to you?

It’s a true honor to even be nominated, let alone considered as one of the top 40 under 40 class of 2019. Honestly, this is not something that I would’ve been able to accomplish without multiple individuals that I have surrounded myself with over the years. Many have been supportive and willing to give advice throughout my career that has ultimately helped mold me into who I am today. This recognition is a true Honor that I will always remember and continue to build off as my career continues.
