Our “Employee Spotlight” Series we will feature a new employee every 2 weeks! As a fourth-generation family-operated, women-owned business with over 95 employees across 3 office locations, Waldner’s builds on the talents and experiences of each employee to help each other succeed and provide the best support for our clients.

Waldner’s employees come from different backgrounds bringing unique talents, diversity of thought, and a variety of cultural perspectives along with them. The intention behind this is for you to get to know the talented, motivated and engaged Waldner’s employees on a more personal level. We asked our featured employee a series of fun questions in a Q&A format.

This month’s Employee Spotlight is on our IT Administrator Andy Faille!

“What are 3 words you would use to describe yourself?”

Loyal, Determined, Realistic

“What are your hobbies and interests outside of work?”

3D Printing is something I am very passionate about, I sell my work on Esty, my Instagram handle is – @AF3DPrints. I have two Creality CR-10S fdm printers, as well as two Elegoo Saturn resin printers.

I love watching football, my favorite teams are College Football – Texas Longhorns, NFL – Dallas Cowboys

Watching TV is something I like to do in my free time, my favorite shows are The Office, Air Disasters, Seinfeld, King of Queens and my Thursday night TV show is Battlebots.

I am still involved with my College Fraternity – Iota Kappa Phi. We have an annual canoe trip in June, and this year will be the 39th canoe trip.

I have a vegetable garden I actively tend in the spring/summer. The garden is dedicated to my father, who passed away in 2022.

I like to travel and visit friends around the country. In the last 6 months, I have visited Pittsburgh and Dallas.

I own a semi-professional flight simulator that I built and play with in my spare time. I also can convert it into an 18-wheeler truck simulator.

I have a 9-year-old black cat named Buddy. He’s very needy and bossy, but he’s also my “sidekick” at all times while I am home.

“What is something you couldn’t live without?”

My family and friends. Material objects can come and go, but the love from those you care about is truly irreplaceable.

“What do most people not now about you?”

I cannot pass a hearing test, because I can’t hear frequencies between 4000 and 6000 hz in my right ear. It has little to no impact on my life though.

“What gets you up in the morning?”

My cat Buddy at 3 am everyday…he’s persistent.
