How long have you worked at Comfort Supply?

Since 1986 full-time.

How did you get into the industry?

When I was in high school I worked for my dad at different HVAC company – I started by driving the truck, handling shipping & receiving, and cutting the grass. In 1985 while I was in college, my dad founded CSI with two other individuals – he later bought them out to have sole ownership. When I graduated 1986 I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, and he offered me a job – with a caveat: he wanted a 2-year commitment, and he required that I take HVAC classes. Little did I realize, my 2-year commitment would turn into a lifelong dedication to the industry!

What is your favorite part about working at CSIpgh?

My favorite thing would be the people who have become a second family. I also I like that we have the ability to make changes and adapt rapidly – we are steering our own ship. I don’t think that there are a lot of jobs where this is the case.

What drives you professionally?

I would say seeing the growth of the employees in their careers.

What is a fun fact about yourself?

I have a 3rd degree black belt in Judo, and have won multiple national championships.
