Denis Roberts

Owner

BIO:

Almost thirty years ago the owner of Nature’s Finest, Denis Roberts, made Tallahassee his home. Prior to that he had been living in Utah going to school and was employed as a translator. His last book translation was into Guarani, a Paraguayan Indian dialect. Wanting to be nearer his family and widowed mother, Denis resigned and declined a full-scholarship for the Master's & Doctoral Program in International Relations at Brigham Young University and moved to Tallahassee.

Speaking four languages fluently presented him with some interesting career opportunities. With his knowledge of language and background in international relations he was offered a position with the Attorney General of the State of Florida as a cabinet aide. But discovering he had a deep curiosity, respect and love for Mother Earth, Denis decided instead to buy his best friends' one truck, one-man lawn care business and has never looked back.

Three more interesting facts about Denis are that he was born in Honduras, was sponsored by a U.S. Senator so that Denis could be commissioned into the Navy and he now has a very large family. He is Dad to nine children! If you ask he will share his feelings about the delight and toil of adoption.

Brad Wonsch

Termite & Green Pest Manager

BIO:

Born and raised in Tallahassee, I understand the pest problems in this area firsthand. I’m dedicated to giving you my time and personal experience to control your pests, without being a pest myself.

I identify pests and perform termite estimates, treatments and renewals, as well as WDO inspections. I use Green Pest Management (GPM) because it is both extremely effective and environmentally friendly. I am continually updating my skills and knowledge with new techniques and the latest data from the EPA and IPAS through the University of Florida. I train our new employees to use these techniques and information to control pests in and around your home, lawn, and landscape. I also share my education with you, so you can better understand our practices and how they apply to your property.

Currently, I am working toward completing my Bachelors in Accounting from Flagler University. My wife, Shelley, is a Registered Nurse, and we are very happy spending time with our new baby girl. I love to be able to raise her and our future children in the town where I grew up, amongst our family and friends.

And we count you among our friends, and I very much enjoy serving you through Nature’s Finest. I am always available via phone to answer any questions you might have.
