Q. What is your earliest memory of working for Telescope?

A.  One of the things that made an impression with me early on was when the whole office would come together for catered lunch and we all took a little time to mix with people from other departments or eat outside on the balcony.

Q.  What do you like most about your job?

A.  The way everyone is willing to pitch in and support one another, across projects and departments, to ensure we’re creating and delivering the best possible solutions for our clients.

Q.  What was your first job?

A.  As a bit of an overachiever, I had two first jobs that started the same week. I split my time between lifeguarding at the local YMCA pool and working in a doctor’s office handling administrative tasks.

Q.  What did you want to be when you grew up?

A.  I wanted to own an art gallery or work in a museum.

Q.  If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would purchase?

A.   Land, somewhere where the trees outnumber the people.

Q.  What’s your favorite song right now?

A.  Not sure I can pick a favorite, but a song of the moment that I keep catching myself humming (even when it’s not on) is Don’t Let Get You Down by Wajatta, John Tejada & Reggie Watts.

Q.  What is your favorite thing to do on the weekend?

A. Do I have to pick just one? Working outside in the garden or going to the beach with my husband and son, followed closely by taking spirited drives in fast cars on curvy roads.

Q.  What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

A.  Don’t forget to breathe. Sounds simple enough, but it’s amazing how a deep, slow breathe can help to center and calm you.

Q.  If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

A.  Flight, I’ve always wanted to be able to fly.

Q. What app or piece of tech can’t you live without?

A.  My iPhone is never too far away, and everything is connected to it (even the house lights!).
