"Listen to other people. Too many people, here, think they know everything. We have a lot to learn from other people, especially with empathy. I think it's the first step in coming together and understanding somebody else. I try to build my relationships that way.

I've had good training along the way but I kind of hit that point where I needed that extra degree, to be qualified to do the higher level work that I want to do." - Dave, Parkland
