How Long Have You Been at Apollo? Two weeks
What Do You Like Most About Your Work? People. Being part of a team of craftsmen all working together to achieve the highest level of quality work to both customer specifications, and Apollo's company standards.
Tell Us A Little About Yourself: Family: a beautiful baby girl, Athena Marie Cruz (4), who is my pride and joy, and a wonderful girlfriend, Heidi O'Steen. Hobbies: hiking!! Being so close to the Smoky Mountains, here in East TN, it would be a disservice not to get to enjoy nature. What mames me happy: Learning and sharing knowledge. There is no substitute for experience, and we are never good enough at what we do to not learn more. It is my belief that in your professional and personal life, if you're not growing, you're dying. I live to learn. And most importantly, raising a young lady!
Anything Else You Would Like to Add? I am happy to be on board and hope I can make an impact in all areas of this division. In order for a team to succeed, everyone needs to do their part. It's a personal goal to always ensure I am doing mine.
