Q: What is your current role at DRN?
A: My current role at DRN is a strategic account manager.
Q: What does your job entail?
A: My job entails that I build mutually beneficial relationships between DRN and our key customers. This also includes building trust by focusing on value to develop and maintain a long-term relationship with the customer.
Q: How has DRN helped you grow since working here?
A: DRN has helped me grow in a lot of aspects of my life. The most beneficial by far has been the professional aspect of myself. You’re essentially representing something bigger than yourself at all times. Additionally, being a strategic account manager requires an individual to constantly challenge themselves everyday by getting out of your comfort zone and increasing your knowledge to better understand client needs to provide the absolute best possible solutions to those needs. In my opinion the constant development is a gift that never stops giving.
Q: What makes you proud to work at DRN?

There is no greater feeling of having someone place a high level of trust and respect for you and the work you produce. Client’s continually count on me to get issues resolved, teams trained, and reports produced. Being the go-to person that delivers on all of this truly makes me proud to be a part of the DRN team.
Q: What is a fun fact that not many people know about you?
A: A fun fact about me that most do not know is I am a realtor in DFW & the surrounding areas. Additionally, I am an active real estate investor. I buy and hold real estate as a long-term wealth building strategy.
Q: If you could learn any language, what would it be?
A: I would definitely learn Spanish. My girlfriend is teaching me Spanish and if I could learn it already, I’d feel accomplish and not naive when she sends me text messages in Spanish and expect me to instantly know what she’s saying.
Q: If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
A: I would travel to East Asia and visit all the countries I have not seen. I lived in South Korea for a few years and often visited Japan. I have yet to explore other Asian countries beyond those.
