Tell us about any mentors you’ve enjoyed working with over the years.

When Tony Strawn was production manager I learned a lot from him. My current boss, Mike Gray, has been one of the best bosses I could hope for as he is supportive of his team. I have learned a lot from him and plan to continue learning everyday.
