    Why do you work for Luck Companies?

    I work for Luck Companies because it is a company which provides a tremendous amount of growth opportunities and education for their employees.

    Describe your career path with the company and why it's worked so well for you.

    Well honestly I didn't think that I would stay here for very long. Now it's more than 9 years. I started off as a blaster at our Powhatan location. At that time the company was wide open and I was excited to be a part that. I then became a foreman trainee and transferred to Burkeville, which was a learning experience in itself. After spending some time there, Rockville became my home for a short time. I then became a foreman at our Burkeville location for almost 5 years. Now, I am currently a foreman at South Richmond. During my time here at Luck Companies I have seen this company rolling out the rock as well as trying to figure out what we will do next. We were strong then and continue to be. Being challenged and meeting your goals makes you feel good about what you've accomplished.

    Give us one piece of advice for being successful with Luck Companies.

    Bring your best every day, and if you don't have the answer, just ask someone who does.

    Tell us something cool about yourself – on a personal note.

    I am a UVA graduate who honestly loves VIRGINIA TECH-LOL. I'm the type of person who likes to have fun while you work. If you don't laugh during the shift something is wrong.

    Quarry Design and Development Manager

    Why do you work for Luck Companies?

    With a mining engineering degree, I could go practically anywhere in the world and find a job, but I work for Luck Companies because of the intangibles. Luck gives me a chance to do work that I like, grow personally, help out the community I grew up in and have a good time doing it.

    Describe your career path with the company and why it's worked so well for you.

    I started with Luck during a Co-Op in the Mining Engineering group when I was still at Virginia Tech. That time helped me figure out that mining was something that I wanted to do as a career and decide that Luck was where I wanted to be. When I started full time, I spent a year in training at the Fairfax plant learning the ropes of operations. I drove the equipment, ran the plants, blasted and did pretty much every job at the site, or at least got a taste of it. It was a very intense training program but the payoff is huge. Now that I'm back in the office doing more design work, I am enjoying the new challenges. I think everything has gone so well this far because I like variety, and I have been involved with new things practically every day since I started.

    Give us one piece of advice for being successful with Luck Companies.

    I think that a successful person with Luck is excited by challenges. You have to enjoy tackling obstacles or you aren't going to enjoy working for Luck.

    Tell us something cool about yourself – on a personal note.

    I love the water. One day, I hope to retire on either a river or lake. I own two kayaks and have kayaked through the North Woods of Maine and the Boundary Waters of Minnesota.

    I started in Engineering, then moved to Marketing, and am now the Director of Business Integration on the IT team. Being able to chase my passions even if it means moving to different departments has helped keep me motivated and challenged.

    Give us one piece of advice for being successful with Luck Companies.

    Be willing to push yourself outside of your comfort zone. That is when you grow the most.

    Tell us something cool about yourself – on a personal note.

    I love to play the bass guitar and have traveled to 5 out of the 7 continents. I also love CrossFit and playing tennis. Technology is one of my main passions in life. Whether it's video games, iPads, or computers, I love using technology to make life easier and more enjoyable.
