What are your career aspirations?
A career in the safety field.
Why did you decide to apply for an internship with MI?
It came down to Tony (Kassab) coming to Millersville and talking so highly about the company. MI seemed like a great place to work – and I wasn’t wrong!
Who did you work with?
I worked alongside Anthony Kassab. We hit it off right away since we went to the same school for the same major, and he went above and beyond to answer questions and help me out.
How did you add value to MI?
We implemented my project, the MSDS on-line program. We introduced the program to the entire safety department for each location and it felt really great that everyone said, “We want this.” I feel like my hard work really paid off.
What was the most valuable thing you learned?
Never be afraid to ask questions. I’m not afraid to ask anything, but at MI, I could even go to the general manager and he would stop everything to help me. Anyone would do that, and I feel like not a lot of companies do that. Everyone would do that, and that’s what this company is all about - helping.
What did you enjoy most?
The entire team at the Hegins plant and the amazing experience I received at MI.
