What’s one of your fondest/favorite memories of working at Go Store It?

One of my fondest memories was my first business trip with GSI. I was a general manager at the time, and I traveled to Cincinnati with my District Manager to onboard two new properties that we acquired from Extra Space. I learned a lot about the acquisition process, and I had a great time meeting new people and seeing new places. 

What is one thing you haven’t done but want to do as a team member at Go Store It?

I would like to visit every Go Store It and BlueGate property; so far, I have visited 33 out of 102!
