Meet the Staff: Travis LeBrun, Support Services Director
How long have you been with the company?
I have been with the company for 17 Years. When I started in 2003 I was 18 years old and applied for Maintenance. At the time the only position available was Housekeeping. I took the job as a Housekeeper and did that for several months until there was an opening in Laundry. I was interested in learning that department as well so I transferred in there for about a year until a position opened in Maintenance. At that point I spent the next four years working under two different Support Services Directors. Late in 2009 when the Director position became available I applied and got the job and here I am today!
Can you tell us a bit about what you do?
I handle day to day operations within the Support Services Departments as well as making certain compliance for the facilities is completed. Each day is different and for the most part you never know 100% what the day will consist of. It can range from coordinating Housekeeping efforts for various areas of the building, troubleshooting and repairing equipment, repairing computers and network infrastructure, installing new phone lines or even building or renovating space for residents/staff. Everything that I do in my role can’t be done without the help of the entire Support Services Crew. I give it 100% every day to collaborate with all teams to make certain resident satisfaction is achieved.
What is your favorite part about working for The Morrison Communities?
My favorite part about working with the Morrison Communities is the history of all the lives we have changed. Being in the moment and helping a resident that’s in need is very satisfying. Not many jobs allow you to reflect on the day and know you made someone’s life better.
What is a fun fact about yourself?
When I was 13 I taught myself HTML programming and designed and launched my own website. One year after I launched the website I had a revenue source coming in monthly from various companies like Lycos, Excite and Ask Jeeves. This was all done on a dial-up connection!
