Born and raised in Springfield, Justin is truly a people person. He is very service oriented and is focused on solving our customers’ pest problems – and is a pretty happy guy to be around! When he is not on location solving pest problems, Justin enjoys active sports like snow and skateboarding. We at GPS always look forward to Justin’s safe return after one of his ‘extreme’ snowboarding adventures!
