In Linda’s Own Words:
Q: What do you like about working at Kirkey Roofing?
A: We have a very diverse group that works well together and respects one another. Employees are able to make decisions based on knowledge and experience and their judgement is trusted. This allows us to be comfortable and confident in our positions. That is important for every employee to succeed in any position.
Q: What’s your background?
A: I grew up in New York City. (You grow up fast there) We had some different games such as “Stick Ball”, “Stoop Ball”, “Buck-Buck”, and we played in the fire hydrants in the summer. We did have some “normal” kid things like baseball, softball and swimming.
Other than my parents, I think my swim team coach was someone that had a huge impact on me growing up. He coached me for seven years and had a great balance of knowledge, toughness and compassion.
My favorite food growing up and still is “Gravy”, most people know this as spaghetti sauce. Every Sunday, you better be home by 3:00 for gravy! (FYI: Linda makes the most amazing Gravy! You will find no better gravy in Florida, and probably New York. We won’t torture you with the delicious details. We recommend making friends with Linda).
Q: What are the values that drive you?
A: Honesty, integrity and always strive for perfection, are values that I was raised on and still consider the most important. Everyone at Kirkey Roofing shares those values and the longevity of the company is a testament of those values.
Q: Your top 3 favorite Podcasts / Books?
A: Favorite books are: The Commanding Heights, The Dead Zone, and Commanders
Q: What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
A: When I am not working, I enjoy kayaking, boating, fishing and motorcycle rides; when the weather permits of course. Otherwise, I enjoy remodeling projects, or just relaxing with a good movie.
