The pandemic might have changed how we connect with one another, but one thing that hasn’t changed is the passion our technical team brings to work and their field every day.

They love to educate. Whether educating each other or technicians in the field, they get so excited, they can sometimes lose track of time. Teaching may be virtual now and looks a little different, but they still love it just the same!

Enjoy these cartoons with Tommy Powell teaching our technical team pre-pandemic and Ryan Neff teaching our technical team during the pandemic. And meet our technical team members below the cartoons.
