The name Mosquito Joe often begs the question “Who is Joe?” – so every once in awhile, we’d like to introduce you to our “Joes” who work hard on the front lines and behind the scenes to serve our customers and combat mosquitoes and other pesky insects. This week’s highlight is on Virginia Beach-Norfolk’s Joe, Denise Morris. Denise is the Operations manager for Mosquito Joe of Virginia Beach – Norfolk, working among our Corporate team, and in the full swing of her second spray season with Mosquito Joe. She’s also our “Mama Joe,” always making sure everyone in the office is taken care of. Denise answers questions about bugs all day long so we thought we’d throw her a few different curveballs in our conversation.
If you had to explain your job to a five year old, how would you describe it?
We work very hard to keep all those nasty bugs that bite away. That way you can go outside and play without getting those itchy bug bites.
If they made a movie about your life, who would you want to play you and why?
My daughters. They each have a different part of my personality and together would play me perfectly.
What’s your favorite room in your house and why?
My dining room. It’s where we come together every day. We have laughed, argued, cried, solved problems, and loved at that table. There is no better place.
What are the biggest strengths professionally that you bring to the Mosquito Joe team?
My connection with people and my attention to detail.
We’re so thankful for Denise and all of our Joe’s! Stay tuned to meet more of them in future posts.
