A short recent chat with Shamus

What are your favorite things to do outside of work?
I am a Certified Six Sigma Master Black Belt, I enjoy fishing, being outdoors and spending valuable time with my wife and 3 children.

What are you most excited to do, learn, or see during your upcoming trip to France as part of the program?
During my visit to France, I am eager to take in some of the iconic trademarks of the country and enjoying the beauty of the area. While attending the Young Leaders program, I look forward to learning skills that will enable me to further develop myself as a leader as well as deepening my understanding of the working relationship between Americans and our French counterparts.

When you were 10 years old, what job did you imagine yourself having?
When I was around 10 years old, I envisioned myself being either a doctor or a lawyer. Obviously my career path lead me in a completely different direction.
