Can you tell us about your position at A. Blair Enterprises?
I’m nighttime dispatch manager, I keep all of the plates spinning during the wee hours of the night, taking care of whatever needs done. Placing bids, keeping every load on-schedule, and responding to high-priority situations are my main duties here.

What part of your job do you enjoy the most?
Honestly, I think it’s the people. Landing an award feels great, but my training process has been nothing but positive, the people here have taken every possible opportunity to guide me and answer all of my questions.

What is your biggest professional achievement? What about your biggest personal achievement?
My biggest professional achievement is honestly getting the opportunity to work here. My greatest personal achievement is making a half-court shot in high school. Complete fluke, I do not play sports.

If you could turn any activity into an Olympic Sport, what would you win the Gold Medal for?
Long-distance wandering.

What’s the best work advice you’ve ever received?
Never hesitate to use every resource available, be it co-workers, notes, or resources online, a big part of being able to solve problems independently is building up those resources. After long enough, it’ll become second nature.

What’s the best personal advice you’ve ever received?
One time my dad told me that when you eat ice cream, your body has to use so much energy warming the ice cream up that it outweighs the caloric content of it… So not that.

You’re a great asset to the A. Blair Team, but what is one job that you would be terrible at?
Working at a nursing home, I can not spend all day lifting human beings, I would drop someone.

What are your hobbies?
Video games and music production.

In your opinion, what is the BEST pizza topping of all time?
Roasted Potatoes.

Is there a word you always spell wrong?
For the life of me, I can never manage to spell necessary correctly. It took me three tries to type that.

What could you give a 40 minute presentation on with absolutely NO preparation?
The Back to The Future trilogy.

What is your favorite drink?
Southside (Gin, lime juice, simple syrup and mint sprig)

A. Blair Enterprises Donates Vehicle to The Oldham County Humane Society

The Oldham County Humane Society hosted their annual Fashion & FURiends show this past weekend, April 14th, 2018, at City Place in downtown LaGrange, KY. Local celebrities and volunteers walked the runway with canine companion models dressed in the latest fashions courtesy of Absolutely Fabulous Clothing Boutique and Sam Meyers Formal Wear. 

Many local businesses came together to support the event, including A. Blair Enterprises, who donated a 2015 Dodge Ram Promaster to the Humane Society. A. Blair Enterprises worked with Greg Hoskinson of Signs Now Louisville, who created, applied, and donated all of the vehicle decals as well as Kevin Eldridge of LaGrange Service Center. Kevin, who is also a long-time supporter of the Oldham County Humane Society, has agreed to provide all future standard maintenance to the Promaster free of charge, as well as discounted rates on any major maintenance the Promaster may need in the future.
