What led you to work for Mosquito Joe?
The leadership is top notch and my coworkers are awesome. Most importantly, the franchisees I get to work with are amazing. I’m excited every day to be a part of the Mosquito Joe journey.
What is your favorite part about your position at Mosquito Joe?
No question about it, helping franchisees out as they grow their business and experiencing their success is extremely rewarding.
What’s your favorite Mosquito Joe tagline and why?
“Outside is fun again” encapsulates everything MoJo is about. It’s straight to the point. In today’s tech-heavy world that often keeps us inside, it’s important to spend some quality time outdoors. I love working for a company that makes that a possibility.
If you could plan your ultimate vacation, where would you go?
My answer probably changes daily, but right now I love the idea of a private island somewhere warm. Of course, I’d have to make sure MoJo was nearby to keep the island in check so I could enjoy it!
How do you like to spend your time outdoors?
I spend a lot of time outdoors. I love playing tennis, running, and enjoying the nice weather Virginia Beach has to offer. Interestingly enough, I don’t go to the beach all that often, but I aim to change that this year.
How attracted are mosquitoes to you?
I used to say that my plan of attack was to find someone nearby the mosquitoes liked just a little bit better, but now I simply make sure MoJo has treated the area and I’m all set.
If you were shipwrecked, what three items would you want to land on shore with you?
I’d love to have my guitar and my phone for selfish reasons. And a fishing rod so I could try to make my grandparents, who held several fishing records, proud (and so I could eat).
