Tell me about your work:

What is the best part of your job?
The people

What is the hardest?
The people

What’s up next for the Lafourche Chamber?
We (Lafourche, Thibodaux, Houma –Terrebonne and St. Mary Chambers of Commerce) are hosting U.S. Congressman Steve Scalise as our keynote speaker for our August luncheon.

Why should area businesses become involved with the Lafourche Chamber?
We support our community and economy by supporting each other.

Tell us a bit about Leadership Lafourche 2019-2020.
I have graduated the last 12 Leadership Lafourche classes, and I learn something from each class that will benefit the next, so it is very exciting to watch each class grow and learn so much about Lafourche. Regarding the next class, we are planning an alumni event for the end of the summer, which will allow prospective applicants to find out more about the program. The application deadline for the next class will be the end of August.

What’s one leadership skill you feel everyone must learn?
Communication. Each year we learn about each other and about Lafourche and without communication, we would learn so much less.

Tell me about yourself:

As a child, what did you see yourself doing as a career?
As a child, I always wanted to be a lawyer… until I got to college.

What was your very first job?
Ledet’s Supermarket in Larose.

What time to do you wake up and how do you start your day?
I typically wake up at either 5:30 or 6 o’clock depending on what I have to do before I go to work, and I start each day with coffee and Jesus!

What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?
Dessert.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I do enjoy reading, but I do not have much free time for it, unfortunately.

If you could vacation anywhere in the world, where would you go and who would you bring?
China. My daughter is adopted from China, and although my wife and I traveled there to adopt her, she was only 11 months old at the time. She is 20 now and I would love to take her and my wife on vacation there.
