I love the culture, the atmosphere, and most of all, my colleagues. There were times in past employment where I dreaded going to work. NOT ANYMORE!!! I absolutely love my career (notice I didn’t say job) and I love the purpose of the Quality Department: to help all the departments/sites be even better than their established superiority. I was born to soar like an eagle!
