When did you join the Paladin family?
I joined the Paladin family in May of 2014.
Why did you get into the security industry & why Paladin?
I was working as a pizza deliverer and one night I delivered a pizza to the hospital, where I got to talking with some of the security team. I was looking for a career change and decided to go for my basic security training. After some research, I determined that healthcare security was my niche and so I knew Paladin would be the perfect fit to grow my career.
What interests you most about your job?
I love helping others. There is a different challenge every day and it is never the same thing twice. For the first time, I actually look forward to work as I know it will bring new experiences, and the teamwork that goes on at my site is incredible. Everyone works together to ensure the job gets done and that we make an impact on the people in our community.
What advice would you give to someone entering the security industry today?
You are working towards something that is greater than your day to day. Your role will make an impact so work hard and you will excel. Make sure you document every event and don’t sweat the small stuff!
How do you maintain a healthy work-life balance?
I am very content in my role and I think in turn, the rest of my life balances. I thrive within the group of people I work with and those connections are incredibly fulfilling.
Describe Paladin in one-two words.
Commitment. We are committed to the company and the company is committed to us. We help you and you help them. My manager is one of the best bosses I have ever had and I feel we are truly working towards the greater good for our clients!
