Q: What led you to work for Pool Scouts?
A: I have been familiar with Buzz Franchise Brands over the years through the Mosquito Joe brand and was originally made aware of the company because of my relationship with Walter, the VP of Franchise Development. I was looking for an opportunity that I could be a part of and make an impact as part of team. The work environment and leadership of this company are amazing.
Q: What is your favorite part about your position at Pool Scouts?
A: I love selling franchises and helping people get into business. I talk to people all day and have an opportunity to help them realize their dreams of being in business for themselves. How can you not love that?!
Q: What are the biggest strengths professionally that you bring to the Pool Scouts team?
A: If I feel we’re are a good fit for a prospective franchisee, I am very aggressive when it comes to getting the franchise leads engaged and into the process of understanding the brand. I will make sure that candidate has what they need to make an informed decision as quickly as possible. For everyone involved, it is just an important to help determine if they are not a good fit as it is to determine they are a good fit.
Q: If you could invite three people to a party, dead or alive, who would they be and why?
A: Jesus – I think the why is obvious, but what I could learn from Him. My dad – he was my best friend and a great man. I would love to see him again and just sit and talk. Jimmy Hoffa – because then I can answer the question of where he is! J
Q: What’s your favorite room in your house and why?
A: Dining room – food and family around the table is just the best.
