I love that DriveTime constantly challenges you and allows you to grow through continuous learning. Having the ability to build relationships with individuals across various teams allows you to truly understand the entire operation. Being surrounded by some of the best leaders in the industry, an environment has been created where everyone is on the same team working for the same goal.

Golfing is one of my passions! I grew up playing golf with my brothers and played competitively in High School. My best memory is when I hit a hole-in-one in the same tournament my brothers were playing at (they’re both still bitter about it) and I can claim I’m the best golfer in the family! Nowadays I like to play on the weekends and rep my DT polo on the course!
