Since I was in elementary school, I wanted to be an artist. Later in life, I earned my BA in Art and became a Graphic Artist. I still dabble in the arts through creative projects when I can.
Geonetric teammates are awesome! There’s definitely an “everyone’s in this together” mentality where everyone supports each other and provides open feedback for growth.
In the past, I had the opportunity to visit India for business. It was a different world but it was so interesting to learn more about the people, food, and customs.
Always play nice and consider the “other side of the story” before making assumptions.
Popcorn, but I try not to eat it at work or I would only sit and eat all day!
The no-managers philosophy where everyone is self-organized and held accountable by their peers. When you hire great people, they don’t need supervision, they just need support!
My first official job was being a grocery store clerk. Being in a small town, it helped me to meet more of the locals and to be courteous no matter what the customer’s dishing out to you.
It’s “open” in so many ways. The structure is “open” to individuals’ needs for flexible work hours. The facility is “open concept” where you get to interact more directly with teams. And the Agile environment brings all tasks and projects out “in the open” so we can visually see what we are accomplishing every day.
The occasional “raspberry” sound from a baby visiting with a teammate. It’s so funny to hear – and to encourage over and over!
Traveling to see the 50 states and gardening on warm summer days!
