What Is an NSR Champion?

Every month, we recognize a few employees from multiple companies under the NSR umbrella. These team members represent NSR’s core values and always go beyond expectations. NSR Champions are team players, natural leaders, and are always ready to extend a helping hand. We’re honored to have each one of them and appreciate all the hard work they do!

What’s your favorite recreational thing to do outside of work?
I love going to concerts and local shows. I’m a big punk and metal fan.

What fictional character do you identify most with, and why?
On a good day, I’m Leslie Knope. I work hard toward my goals and ultimately just want to help other people. Other days I’m more April Ludgate, with plenty of sarcasm and brutal honesty to spare.

School of Rock will always be my favorite. Jack Black is hilarious, the music is great, and there are so many quotable lines.

I drive a pickup truck, so probably leaves.
