What is your position on the Bear Creek team? 

Here at Bear Creek, I work in the shop as a Production/Shop Assist. In this role, I assist the Wall Panel Lead and Shipping & Receiving Manager in completing the fabrication and shipping of projects. My role tends to involve cutting and assembling components, cleaning and organizing the shop, reading plans, and other similar tasks. 

How did you come to the Bear Creek team?

I heard about the position from one of my close friends, who was working for Bear Creek at the time. He recommended the job to me, so I applied and here I am!

Working here definitely builds character. A motto here at Bear Creek is that “We build great stuff, but more importantly, we build great people.” This is something that is evident from the moment you set foot in the door. This team is a great group of people to work with. 

When your not working with Bear Creek, what do you enjoy doing in your downtime with friends/family?
