When did you start working for VeriShip?
March 2, 2015
What are three things that make you want to come to work at VeriShip each day?
1. The people I get to work with – there is never a dull moment! People care about each other and want to do their jobs well.
2. There is always something challenging to work on and/or a problem to solve.
3. The Grateful Circle in our daily stand-up. Whether someone says something funny or thought-provoking, it’s a great way to start the day!
Before working at VeriShip, what was the most interesting or unusual job you had?
I don’t think I’ve ever had an unusual job. The most interesting job I’ve had was working part-time for a catering company. I got to see a lot of cool venues, and taste a lot of great food!
What’s one project you’re working on right now that you’re excited about?
I’m really excited about building out the client journey/experience! I get the opportunity to collaborate with multiple departments, build out processes, and see how clients respond.
If you had one extra hour of free time each day, how would you use it?
I would probably spend time with friends/family, read, journal, or clean.
What are you kind of snobby about?
Brunch! My fiance, Lathe, and I love going to brunch on the weekends. Exceptional coffee is a must.
What is your most used emoji?
Professionally: Thumbs Up
If you were the CEO of your own company, what is one thing you’d require from all employees, and one thing you’d ban from the office?
I would strongly encourage employees to engage in some kind of personal development exercise. I would ban the consumption of canned Mackerel in the office… Pee-ew!!
What is one movie you can recite line-for-line?
Swiss Family Robinson. This was 1 of 3 movies we had on rotation as kids.
If you could bring back any fashion trend, what would it be?
I don’t really fashion… Just ask Elisa Thayer – she helps me shop!
Do you have any phobias?
Spiders and snakes. I remember coming home from a long Sam’s Club trip one evening with my family when I was about 6. I went upstairs to put on my pajamas, and to my dismay, a 6’ long black rat snake decided to take a nap on my bed! Needless to say, I was traumatized…
What is one item on your bucket list?
Swim with dolphins
