Tony Southeilan, JR., 28
Recruiter for Superior Technical Resources

Tony says one of the most rewarding aspects of his work has been helping people during these challenging economic times. “These days people are trying to maintain their families and build their businesses. I like being able to help them. And, after you’ve helped them, having them express joy at something you’ve enjoyed doing is just great.” Tony graduated form Satellite High School and UCF and says he would like to meet someone who is “friendly, trustworthy and outgoing. They also have to be family oriented. I want to have kids one day and am very close to my immediate and extended families. I consider my friends to be my extended family because we all look after each other and watch each other’s backs.”
