He joined us full-time in the spring of 2015 as the Quality Standards Coordinator in our Shipping Department. In the Fall of 2015, he changed roles and became our Order Accuracy Coordinator where his primary responsibilities included processing, preparing, and organizing all orders as they are picked for shipment. In February of 2018, Jim was promoted to Section Leader of Shipping and Facilities. Jim now oversees all aspects of order handling and shipping tasks to ensure flawless orders are shipped to our customers. He also coordinates our driver availability and scheduling, he coordinates scheduling and maintenance of our fleet of delivery vehicles, and he also leads our Maintenance Department where he coordinates, prioritizes, and assists with maintenance and equipment tasks for our entire facility.
Jim has always had a love for plants and the outdoors. It started with his Eagle Scout project which was to design and landscape a place of peace and prayer for the memorial of the unborn children at the church of Our Lady Of Lourdes in Marysville. After graduating from Fairbanks High School, he began his landscaping career while attending Columbus State Community College and The Ohio State University where he studied in their horticulture programs.
In his free time, Jim likes to lounge around with his six siblings, head out on road trips, visit National parks, camping, and hiking. He is always up for any outdoor high adventure activity!
