Job Title: Safety Specialist

How long have you been at Cullen: Hired in May of 2015

  1. What caused you to get into your profession?
    Since I can remember, I have always been coached and mentored how to perform a task safely and wanted to make a living doing just that. My dad and grandfather always like to throw in their two cents while we are working on something and it has helped in my professional development!
  2. What is your proudest achievement?
    My proudest achievement was just recently at the Milwaukee Bucks Arena topping out ceremony. The spotlight was on JP Cullen, our hard-working employees, and the respect to safety. Watching the last truss get hoisted was a great feeling! I was so fortunate to be on such an amazing project.
  3. Who has been most inspirational to you in your career?
    When I turned 16, I started working at a local hardware store in Edgerton, WI.  (Deegan Hardware) I worked there while going to school and ended up being there for 7 years. The owner, Donny Deegan has been most inspirational to me. He taught me people skills, communications skills and business skills that I will use the rest of my life!
  4. If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be?
    If I was a superhero my superpower would be the ability to teleport.  That way, if the tree stand or duck blind I was hunting didn’t have much action; I could suspiciously teleport to another one without being detected. Bingo!
  5. What is the funniest moment in your career?
    I would say the funniest moment of my career was when I was presenting a safety training and it wasn’t until midway through someone told me that my pants zipper was down. Although embarrassed, I laughed until tears came rolling down my face!
