I wish you a Happy Memorial Day! May we remember those that have sacrificed to help us reach new heights. Beyond my gratitude for those who sacrificed their lives to secure my freedoms, I also wanted to recognize two people that played a pivotal role in my career that have recently passed away.
George Benda gave me my first job in indoor air quality in 1995 and I never looked back. On my first hospital project, I lost a day’s worth of data and was sure he would fire me. Instead, he showed me grace, continued to put trust in me, and even give me larger responsibilities.
Dave Munn was my direct boss for a few years at Chelsea Group and was such a kind and patient mentor. Beyond teaching me the fundamentals of HVAC systems, he instilled in me a passion and interest for the topic that sticks with me today.
