Personal Note

I love Wightman! My work family means as much to me as my blood family. Outsiders are always surprised when they find out how many times my Wightman family gets together after hours. I love getting to know my coworkers’ significant others and their children. We care about what the people we care about care about. Another thing I’m proud of is that I’ve helped over 30 of my coworkers get their CPL (concealed pistol license).
