What is your current job and tell us a little about what you do?
I am the owner and operator at Northwest Geothermal. We specialize in design and installation of geothermal heat pumps. We also work on gas furnaces, water heaters, heat pumps and air conditioners, providing service throughout Idaho, Washington and Montana.
How long have you been a member of The Coeur Group and what is your best experience so far?
I became a member of The Coeur Group in 2009 when I started my business. Best experience so far has to be taking part in the annual Christmas Parade. I enjoy spending time with the fellas decorating the truck, and love to watch the kids' excitement while riding the fire truck or waving from the crowd.
What's your favorite moment of your career to this point?
A couple of favorite moments stick out. The first day I sold a big geothermal project I actually closed on two large jobs within a four hour period. The motivation I gained that evening still lingers. Another moment was when I realized I was going to make it with my first business venture. Not sure the exact day, but a couple years ago I quit worrying about where the next job would come from as word of mouth has given me more than enough work in the CDA area.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I enjoy the outdoors. September is typically spent archery hunting the back county of North Idaho. Other hobbies include skiing, trapping, coaching tee ball and playing in the lake. I have a five year old son and a twelve year old daughter, so spare time is limited!
Why would you recommend The Coeur Group to a colleague?
Not only will you help your community, you will also meet a group of guys that is like no other. Some of the friendships you build will last a lifetime and the networking is second to none.
