“Julie is the type of employee any company would love to have,” notes her manager, Brian Leahy. “Her determination and work ethic set the high standard. The fact the Julie has chosen to work in our industry is a blessing; her involvement raises the bar of professional pest control. I am proud to work alongside Julie and learn from her each day.”

She says, “One of the things that I value most about my company and position, is the relationships that we build with our customers. I find satisfaction in being able to not only solve pest issues, but also to be a resource for our customers.”
