❶ What has your experience been with our company culture?
The company culture at UNIFI starts by striving to be accountable, authentic, agile, curious, empathetic, and humble. This is the character of those I met when I first started at UNIFI and while no one lives up to all of these in perfection there is a desire to be and hold others accountable to this kind of character at all levels of the company. I can’t say I have ever experienced a culture where these things have been clearly desired as well as commonplace among its staff.
➋ What are some things you have noticed about our leadership team?

Truth, honesty, and humility in building maintaining and supporting something that helps our industry.
➍ What have been your biggest accomplishments on our team?
Taking over primary product expert, full revamp, and consolidation of the UNIFI content audit report, managing support during Kenneth’s leave, and providing industry knowledge and current product knowledge to the dev and production team in rebuilding the product we have for web. All within one year from start.
➎ Which benefits are your favorite and why?
Flexible schedule and fully remote. These allow me to live in a rural area to enjoy God’s good handy work and build my own home while home schooling my children and soon fostering among many other things… It allows for life while you work.
➏ Before working here, what was an exciting job you had?
SE Regional BIM manager for Gensler. Working with one of the early employees of Revit Mark Bassett, we developed cutting edge process and tools for visualization and project efficiency that set the standard for many things that carry on today at Gensler globally.
