It only takes me 13 minutes to get from my bedroom to my office. And I don’t even mean the home office. That is a luxury. It gives me extra time to be around family and friends, do things I enjoy, such as play golf and basketball with my daughter.
I love the trust, the people and the culture at TVH. We are all on the same mission and we help each other get there. And everyone’s opinion matters in this story. The people really make the difference over here.

I have more hobbies than hours in a day. From hiking to gaming with friends. I even built a PC for my partner. And I ran 10K thanks to the TVH Nudge Challenges. I hadn’t done that amount of distance in about 10 years.

I always try to be optimistic. A positive attitude makes all the difference. In my role I liaise a lot with colleagues from sales to warehouse and all in-between. Being able to help them is why I love my job.
