Congratulations to our February Employee of the Month, Ted Magie!
A two time employee of the month champion, you may know Ted as our Sales Representative for H2o911 Restoration, but he has recently been promoted! In addition, Ted has been nominated by multiple staff members for Employee of the Month for how quickly and efficiently he dived into his new role as Repairs Superintendent & Quality Control!
Customers and long-term clients who are familiar with Ted stopping by their office to say hello can now find him managing their rebuild projects. In addition to his jolly and generous persona, he also is a perfectionist with a great attention to detail when it comes to rebuilds. These strong qualities come from his lengthy history of project management experience!
The same day Ted was promoted to this new role, he went to every rebuild job site that same day to make sure every project was going as planned, all customer selections were coordinated, and he reached out to every customer. He handles any problem you throw at him smoothly, and professionally. Since fulfilling this role, clients will call or email regularly to let our team know that Ted has been a blessing to their project! What can we say…Everyone loves Ted!
It is a pleasure to have someone like Ted as a part of our team, and we look forward to seeing how he advances our repairs division!
Congratulations to our November Employee of the Month, Jesse Flowers! Joining us with over 8 years of restoration and mitigation experience back in July, Jesse has been doing an amazing job at fulfilling the role of Production Manager!
Jesse is thorough, responsible and knowledgeable. He has strong leadership skills, and doesn’t mind getting his hands dirty on a job site to ensure jobs are completed on time, and following IICRC Industry Standards. He never misses work, is always here early, and stays late if needed. He will even work through the weekend to make sure a job is finished by its scheduled deadline. Jesse is also very passionate about the company, and how he manages his technicians!
Though Jesse is passionate about work, he also enjoys playing flag football! Most importantly though, he loves being a dad to his 1 year old daughter.
We consider Jesse a major asset to our company, and we know you will too!

September Employee of the Month
Doug joined our team in April as a Lead Technician, and it didn’t take him long to earn Employee of the Month! He comes with 6 years of previous restoration experience and has over 20 years of experience in construction. Prior to that, Doug spent 12 years in the army!
Doug is an asset to our company and was nominated by his managers for many reasons! He is reliable, and dependable. You can count on him to show up every day, and he adapts with a smile to any deviation in the daily schedule. He is consistent with his work, and never has any issues with his daily duties or completing them.

We’re thankful to have Doug as one of our Lead Technicians and we look forward to seeing him continue to grow with us!
This May, we’ve nominated our Warehouse Manager, Derrick Carrasco as Employee of the Month!
Derrick has been our Warehouse Manager since February this year. His core job duties are to maintain the trucks, properly disinfect returned equipment, and provide maintenance to any vehicles or machines that may be malfunctioning. We’ve given him the nickname “Mr. Fix It” because if it’s broken, he knows how to fix it! He keeps the warehouse clean and organized and is very dedicated to every project he is given.
Derrick takes direction very well, has great attendance, and is always willing to help the team. He has even helped other team members in his spare time with car troubles. He recently volunteered for our Team Building event with Habitat for Humanity, where he took charge in spraying the 2nd coating in both homes! If needed, Derrick is always willing to help the team and learn something new.
In his free time, Derrick likes to play pool and spend time with his 2 sons. He’s been a mechanic for over 10 years and likes to stay busy!
We certainly consider Derrick an asset to our team, and we look forward to seeing him grow with our company!
We are pleased to announce that Tim is our Employee of the Month for April! Joining our team over 7 months ago, Tim started as a helper and quickly grew to become one of our Lead Technicians.
If our team had to describe Tim in 3 words, it would be responsible, reliable and hardworking! We can always count on him to show up, take responsibility, and work diligently until the job is completed. He is always on time and completes all of the necessary paperwork for the jobsite to the utmost detail. In addition, every job that Tim has been a lead on has passed Air Quality Testing after remediation since he was hired!
Clients love Tim as well! In the 5-Star Google Reviews he has received, he has been described as thorough, methodical and knowledgeable.
In his free time, Tim likes to spend time with his kids and work on his man cave! He is also a huge Miami Dolphins fan.
Dryzone / H2o911 is proud to have someone like Tim on our team, and we are certain he is only going to keep growing with us!
Our team would like to commend Alex Moscone, as our December Employee of the Month!
Alex is our Lead Floor Cleaning Specialist. He has been here just under a year, and is already carpet, tile, and upholstery certified. In addition, Alex is also WRT Certified, and is working on being ASCS Certified for air duct cleanings.
We’ve nominated Alex because he has recently stepped out of the box to help with many of our restoration jobs. He is a team player that is always willing to lend a hand. Whether it’s a multiple story flood, a humidity bloom, or even a sewer loss – Alex is willing to help the team with no complaints.
Check out our Google Reviews, and you will also see that our customers LOVE Alex. He has a reputation for being polite, professional, efficient, courteous, and knowledgeable!
In addition to his passion for perfection with our clients, Alex is very dedicated to upkeeping his grandfather’s garage and maintaining his cars. He also enjoys a good hockey game, Chipotle and little extra sleep wherever he can get it!
Our team is very fortunate to have someone like Alex, and we look forward to seeing him grow with us in the future.
We’ve nominated our General Manager of Operations, Tommy Dence, as Employee of the Month for November! Our team was thankful for many things this past holiday season, and we were especially thankful to have someone like Tommy on our team!
Tommy has been in the industry for over 15 years, and with H2o911 Restoration since 2005. He is our most certified and licensed member of our team. Because of this, he is frequently requested at mold inspections and adjuster meetings! He is a Licensed Mold Professional, and is also WRT Certified, Radon Mitigation Certified, and Smoke Remediator Certified. In addition, he is also a Certified Radon Measurement Specialist.
In our industry, one of our busiest times of the year is right before the holidays. All of our clients want their jobs started and completed as soon as possible to ensure the work is done by the time their friends and family arrive for the holiday. This season, Tommy threw on one of his other hats, and stepped in to start and complete a mold remediation. With the help of one other technicians, Tommy wanted to make sure the job was completed before Thanksgiving as promised to the client! Our client was extremely grateful that he jumped in to lend a hand, and so were we!
When Tommy isn’t working, he’s a huge sports fan! He coached baseball for about 20 years, he mentors his two teenage sons in golf, and he is a huge Miami Dolphins fan! If you’re ever in our office on a Friday afternoon, you will find that Tommy also enjoys singing to a wide variety of music!
Tommy Dence is a great example of a team member that goes above and beyond. We are grateful to have someone with his attitude, professionalism, and experience as a part of our team!
For her constant willingness to help coworkers, our team has nominated Jody Muff as October’s Employee of the Month!
Jody has been with us for about 4 years and has taken on many roles since! Her job title may be “Accounts Payable” – but she does so much more than that! Jody makes sure all our licensing is in check, she manages our carpet/tile cleaning scheduling, she coordinates necessary work with other contractors and she manages payroll. She also handles all our inner office IT issues – from getting the internet back up, to figuring out what that beeping noise is on the printer that won’t stop – she always knows how to fix it! When it comes to company events or birthdays, Jody is the organizer! She makes sure everything is covered, and that everyone feels important on their special day. Some of her other roles include (but aren’t limited to) being the company nurse, the office therapist, and the office baker! 😉 No matter what the situation is, Jody is always willing to help!
When Jody isn’t busy lending a helping hand, she enjoys attending her son’s games, getting her nails done and baking! She also has two adorable French bulldogs, named Winnie and MJ.
Our team is beyond grateful to have someone as caring and patient as Jody! We appreciate all of her help, and how gracefully she wears so many hats within our company!
We know a 5-Star employee when we see one! And that’s why our team has nominated Shane for September’s Employee of the Month!
Since joining our team a few months ago, Shane has exceeded everyone’s expectations! He has a great personality that not only works well with our team, but our customers love him as well. When we asked other team members what they like the most about Shane, they said “Shane keeps the mood light, and keeps everyone smiling when things get stressful out here in the field.” What a great teammate!
Our team can also describe Shane as eager to learn. He has a very strong desire to further his knowledge and expand his education in the field. In addition, another one of Shane’s strong points is that he is dependable, and willing to work overtime when an emergency arises. Shane has goals of growing within the company, and he is certainly on the right track!
When he isn’t busy expanding his restoration knowledge, Shane enjoys tinkering with his car. He loves exotic cars, and we’re certain with his knowledge and determination that he may own one or two one day! 😊
We are very thankful to have someone like Shane on our team, and you will certainly value his hard work as well!
When it came to choosing August’s Employee of the Month – it wasn’t very hard… Joining our team about 2 months ago, Helynn has exceeded expectations since the day she started!
Management and the rest of the team didn’t take long to notice that Helynn caught on very quickly. She is not only a dedicated team player, but a great leader and role model as well! She is a self-starter, with a great attitude and always goes above and beyond what is expected of her. Her quality of work is substantial, with every job being completed to the utmost detail and expectations of the customer.
Our team can count on Helynn during a time of urgency, which is so important in our industry! Helynn had just walked in one evening from a long day at a very big job and was about to head home when another large flood came in. With no hesitation she responded, “Sure thing – what’s the address?” and headed back out! We all know that feeling of relief when we see 5 o’clock after a long a day, right? Helynn didn’t even give it a second thought!
But Helynn’s leadership skills don’t stop here – she also coaches the girl’s basketball team for Cape Coral High School! When not on call for the weekend, you can find her out on Sanibel fishing with her doggy, Gypsy. She likes to play pool at local hot spots and, like most of us, Helynn is also a serial Netflix Binger…What better way to relax?!
We’re beyond fortunate to have Helynn as part of our team and look forward to seeing her grow with our company!
When it comes to going the extra mile, we know we can count of Geoff, and that’s why we’ve nominated him for our July employee of the month!
Geoff has been with us for almost 5 years as a Certified Mold Estimator, and our clients love him! We hear very frequently that he is polite, patient, and very knowledgeable. Having mold or water damage to your home can be very stressful, and you may have a lot of questions that arise. When Geoff is in your home, we can assure you he will complete a thorough inspection and provide you with an estimate designed to remediate your home, with your best interests in mind.
We value Geoff’s work ethic greatly here in the office. He is a dedicated and loyal employee that our entire team can count on. If needed, Geoff is willing to work weekends or provide afterhours inspections for customers with a challenging work schedule.
Geoff is a United States Marine Corps Veteran and has 2 older sons. In his spare time, he likes to play golf, workout, and hangout with his rescue Mastiff, Aries.
We are honored to have him as a part of our team, and value all of his hard work!
Meet Jaime – Jaime specializes in repairs and air duct cleaning but this month we want to recognize him for being a team player!
A client contacted us recently for exceptionally large water loss in hotel, and we needed some extra hands. With no hesitation whatsoever, Jaime hopped on board to assist the team in stabilizing the loss until the early hours of the morning! He had already had a long, and hard day – but you would never have known because he is always smiling and willing to help!
Coming up on his 5-Year Anniversary with our team, there is so much to be said about Jaime! He is also well known for being dependable, consistent, and personable. Jaime works well and gets along with everyone! He is often the first one in the office, and the last one to leave…he loves to keep busy!
When you ask Jaime what his favorite part about repairs is, he’s quick to respond with “Painting! I love to see the finished product! And, I love when the customer is impressed.” Jaimie is very committed to his projects, and his strong attention to detail reflects in every job he’s assigned to.
Stephen “Cupcake” Krauz
I’d like to introduce you to “Cupcake”, our April Employee of the Month! (Stephen earned the nickname Cupcake when he was in high school from his team mates, and through the years it’s stuck with him!)
We knew this guy was a team player right from the start! Joining us in September of last year, Cupcake became an asset to our company almost immediately following the wrath of Hurricane Irma. During this chaotic time for our customers, Cupcake proved himself to be personable during their time of distress and dedicated to helping get their homes restored.
As the year has gone on, he has continued to prove himself in ways that can sometimes be hard in this industry. As a 24/7 Emergency Services company, our technicians are often sent to emergencies unexpectedly, even once they have gone home for the day. Cupcake is always available and willing to go to a water loss, no matter what time of the day it may be. And no matter how late into the night he is there with a customer, he still shows up to work the next day – not a minute late! He is hardworking, reliable, and a team player with great customer service skills. Hey, who couldn’t love a technician named Cupcake, right?
It is very clear in his work performance that Cupcake is constantly striving to be better, do better and grow within our company, which is something we value tremendously about him. In addition to all of his accomplishments, he is also WRT Certified through IICRC.
When he’s not busy saving homes, you can find him bowling, or fishing at the beach with his boston terrier!
If you see him on your job site, rest assured you are in good hands. We’re lucky to have Cupcake as part of our organization, and we look forward to having him grow with us for years to come!
