1.) How long have you been with Homestead?: I’ve been with Homestead for just three weeks… however, it feels like three years (and I mean that in a good way). It’s exciting whenever you start a new job, but at the same time it’s also scary wondering whether or not you’re going to “fit in”. I can honestly say that from the second day I have felt like I was “home”. Everything about it just “feels” right and I owe that to everyone being so helpful, patient and supportive. It’s truly been overwhelming and I feel very fortunate to be working at such a great company.
2.) What were you doing before Homestead? In my previous position I was working for Estee Lauder and prior to that I ran my own sign business for 17 years.
3.) Where are you originally from?: I’m originally from the East Coast – specifically, Maryland and I moved to Columbus three months ago. So far it’s been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
4.) What’s your favorite part about being an HA employee?: My favorite part about being an HA employee…. that’s an easy one… It’s not just feeling, it’s knowing that I’m a part of something great which is very exciting!! Homestead is a young company with great potential and lots of room for growth. I LOVE working with everyone… I love the team spirit and camaraderie. There’s an incredible amount of good energy here and a very positive attitude wisping about the company. It’s a great working environment that’s also a lot of fun.
5.) What do you like to do outside of work?: I love spending time with my three grown sons, their girlfriends (and of course my two granddogs), who ALL continue to amaze me and make me proud. I love listening to music and relaxing with a glass of wine. One of my favorite things to do is to go out exploring and find new obscure places. I also enjoy writing, photography and walking. I have a quirky interest in astrology and like to read about the different signs and their characteristics. I feel I’m the absolute epitome of a Cancer born female (possessing both the good as well as the less appealing traits).
6.) What’s your favorite band or type of music?: That’s not something I can pinpoint. Music moves me and I’m always listening to something. I’m an emotionally driven person so my mood totally dictates what I happen to be listening to at any given moment.
7.) What’s your favorite website?: I like websites that inspire me to think, reflect and learn. I love reading quotes (favorite quote.. “Attitude Reflects Leadership”). I like reading stories about people who have overcome struggles in their lives and people who do good deeds without looking for anything in return – Inspirational and Good Samaritan type stories that are good for the soul. I also love watching funny puppy videos on youtube!!
8.) What’s your favorite local restaurant?: Since moving here in December, I really haven’t had much of an opportunity to do a lot of exploring, especially considering the winter we just had, so my favorite restaurant is yet to be determined… Any recommendations or suggestions would be appreciated.
9.) What’s your dream vacation?: Venice baby!!! It’s on my bucket list!!
10.) What’s the best TV show you have seen lately?: I’m more of a fan of “Classic” TV and some of my favorites are “I Love Lucy”, “Everybody Loves Raymond” and “Seinfeld”. Favorite all time movies… “Remember the Titans”, “Pay it Forward” and “The Notebook”.
11.) What’s your favorite HA memory?: My favorite HA Memory was on March 31th, 2014 at 11:33 a.m. when Laura Schulman called me and said.. “We would like to offer you the position” and I immediately started doing my happy dance…
