How long have you been a GLI Ambassador?
What is your favorite part about being a GLI Ambassador?
Supporting GLI and meeting other GLI investors.
Fun Fact: Ran several marathons including the Boston Marathon.
Best Career Advice you received? There are two pieces of career advice I received when I started the company years ago.
1. “Earn their trust” – Whether it’s a client, a coworker or a vendor, once you have earned someone’s trust, new opportunities, information and cooperation will come your way.
2. Treat everyone how you want to be treated.
What does being a GLI investor mean to you? Being a GLI investor opens doors and presents opportunities that, otherwise, I may not have been exposed to. An example is that Mackey Printing Services was selected for the Inaugural Power to Prosper Cohort in 2021. The learning, relationship building and advantages to work with other GLI investors is incredible.
What is your favorite thing to do in Louisville? I invest in my health by working out at Orangetheory in the Paddock Shops.
What do you do to make Greater Louisville GREATER? My volunteer passion is working with animal rescue groups such as Metro Animal Services and The Kentucky Humane Society (among others). Giving second chances to animals is a great feeling of satisfaction.
