We caught up with Nelson, who joined the LMP team in 2015, this week to learn a little about his journey in the green industry:
How long have you been in the green industry? Since 2013 when I began with a smaller company that was not as professional as LMP and did not offer many opportunities for me to grow in the industry.
What do you like about the green industry? I like that we are able to improve the environment aesthetically and nurture its health.
What designations or certifications have you obtained? I am Best Management Practices certified, and I have Pesticide Applicator’s license and Commercial Fertilizer Application license.
What interesting hobbies do you have? I enjoy spending time with my family, attending church services, and doing projects to improve my home and garden. I have been blessed with four children and am proud that two have graduated from college and the other two are currently enrolled in college.
What is your mantra or catch phrase? Why? “Support your family – the one you have at home and the one you have at work”. We all need help, support, and to know that we are cared about; it takes so very little to be kind and caring with each other.
What is your favorite place to visit? I love the beach – the smell of the air, the coolness of the water, and the sunshine. Its relaxing.
What is your favorite song? “Coward of the County” by Kenny Rodgers.
