Very good at multi-tasking as its something done regularly in the energy center. Usually running anywhere from 2 to 3 samples at one time whiles also doing water samples, and putting number into the spreadsheet while samples are running and putting those in once they are all finished up. In plumbing I really enjoy watching everything coming together and the finished project. I like doing Service work as its never the same thing, I also like taking things apart and fixing them and seeing how things work.
I have about 3 years of experience in the plumbing field I have worked with some great Journeymen plumbers in the past that really taught me a lot of things.

NuGen Energy LLC
Job Title: Energy Center Operator
Collect samples from various parts of the plant, run water samples, record moistures and gas usage on a spreadsheet, keep everything up and running if one of the machines stopped working bring feed down and send product out to the wet pad so the dry building wouldn't get to wet. Try not to loose anything in the energy center as it affects the rest of the plant. Before I was in the energy center I was an ethanol cook and my duties were to add chemicals that had to be weighed out to a certain amount and add to the yeast props when instructed to do so, take samples from either the yeast props which would require a cell count, ph, and thickens of the mash, or grab samples from the ferms, and depending on what hour it was you would have to either do a cell count on the yeast, ph, and thickness test, or just do a ph and brix test, run the samples through the hplc to get the levels of various items. When trucks would come in had to unload with a forklift and count and sign off on the paperwork stating it was all there. Clean the alley way around the ferms, go on top of the ferms when getting cleaned to make sure everything is working as it should. Only reason for leaving is I can no longer do the swing shifts as my husband is going to be working out of town.
I like to learn new things and take notes when someone is giving me advice on things that I do not know. I am always early and ready to work.
Duties: Started off being trained for service work, while in training I was taught how to use sewer machines to clear main sewer lines, how to use a hand drill to clear the drain lines under the sink that go into the wall, how to fix faucets, water heaters, replace water heaters, unclog toilets, unclog urinals, and fix various other items. Went into the field for new construction, there I was taught how to grade a trench for the person operating the mini excavator, how to bed pipe, and prime and glue fittings together, learned how to use a jump packer, to pack the trench after done backfilling. Eventually asked someone to teach me how to operate the excavator, the skidsteer, and a roll packer. I learned from some of the journeyman how to solider copper pipe together, and was starting to learn how to run above ground sewer and vent, learned how to set fixtures, and became very good and fast at it. I like being in the field because there is so much to learn and I love learning new things and being challenged to do stuff out of my comfort zone. I eventually went into the warehouse after I injured my shoulder and I wound up staying there for the last three years of my time with Krohmer's. During this time I learned how to call for prices on material that was needed for different jobs if it wasn't something that was kept in stock to get it at the best possible price, learned how to do a stock order for material every week and eventually started to keep my list after I gave it to the lady who did the ordering so I could go back and see if stuff was on order and if we were waiting for it, if it had been three or more weeks since it was ordered I would call the supply houses to find out how long until the items would be in then I would have the office lady about every three months print off a list of stuff that was received so it could be taken out of the purchase order that showed we were still waiting for it. The project managers would bring back list of material that needed to be pulled for upcoming jobs, if not all the material was available to be pulled we would right on the list how much was still needed and hand back to them. We would box the material up and write on each one what was in the boxes and what part of the job it was for. We would put the pipe and all thread that was needed in the top part of the pipe wrack and label what part of the job it was for. We also ran material out the jobsites if something was needed that couldn't be waited for. When the jobs were finished we would check the material in if it was something we kept on hand or it would either get returned or if the return fee was to high it would then get put into stock to use at a later date for another job. We also lined up rentals if needed and occasionally picked up and dropped off the rental equipment. Sometimes we had to fix tools and equipment if we had time and also swept and mopped the shop once a week to try and keep it clean .
Job Duties: Make pizzas for the breakfast rush and stock for the next morning, cook chicken and different items using a broiler, serve customers food out of the warmer during lunch, take pizza orders over the phone, make sure to wash and sanitize work areas, follow safe handling procedures of raw food, fill when needed on chicken so it would have time to thaw for the following day by putting in water and putting in walk in cooler labeled and dated. Stocked the walk in cooler with pop and beer making sure to rotate stock and checking expiration dates. Always early and ready to go to work when I clocked in.
Job Duties: If on morning shift had to make breakfast items, and everything up and running for the day, wait on customers, stock the walk in cooler, checking expiration dates on items and pulling the ones that weren't any good, making sure to rotate stock, when the 2nd shift came in watch the till while they did their morning checklist and then start cooking food for lunch, following safe food handling and directed in the serv-safe class that the company paid for us to take. Eventually was asked if I wanted to be an assistant manager, and then was responsible for making sure weekly orders were ready to go for our food reps and talking with them about any specials that were coming up, or changing prices in the pos system to the sale price, when the manger was gone I would do the till sales to make sure they came out right, take money to the bank, get change for the change box, be on call if there was an emergency, cover shifts if needed. On 2nd shift responsibilities were to clean the bathrooms, fill ice in the pop machine, wait on customers while the 1st shift was getting lunch ready to go, make sure to get all the stuff on the shift sheet was done, when the nigh shift came in would go in stock the cooler, rotate stock if needed, cook food the night, clean up the kitchen, wait on customers so the night shift could get some of their stuff done before leaving for the night. On night shift we were responsible for Cleaning the store counting money at the end of the shift, counting how many scratch tickets were sold by recording numbers in a book, counting the video lottery draw, making sure everything is locked and ready to go for the morning.
I have been breaking horses for just over 20 years and nothing is better than watching a young horse become a riding partner.
I have been riding horses since I was about 2 and its the one thing that keeps me grounded and I can go ride to just feel free for a little while. Nothing compares to sitting on the back of one of my horses and just going for a ride either down the gravel road by our place or loading them up in the trailer and going trail riding either for the day or a few days. This is how I relax.
