Background: Before starting at Consol in December 2006, Brottish worked in several fields, including as a home inspector in San Diego.

Quote: “We're really dependent on each other for our lives, so it is a very, very close-knit group. ... If (the camaraderie) wasn't there, I don't think I could do the job. Everybody who gets on the team has a great sense of pride and wanting to do things to help their fellow employees.”
