ASKED & ANSWERED
Were you surprised that you won Newbie of the Year – EMEA? I was happily surprised! Starting with GC was my first experience in a home based job and the Newbie of the Year – EMEA Award gave me comfort in my decision to begin this journey with GC. I feel blessed to be a part of this company – a fantastic team of people spread throughout the world but somehow so close!
What are some of your hobbies? I am passionate about cooking, baking, and of course event planning. I have a blog where I share my recipes and inspirational mood board on different event themes and destinations. Feel free to check it out at https://squatwafflesntattoos.wordpress.com/.
Why do you do yoga every day? When you’re a workaholic like me, working at home can be challenging if you don’t set boundaries and take breaks. So I do yoga, followed by a workout every weekday, which helps me clear my mind and look at things from a different angle.
What made you decide to start taking Salsa dance lessons? I have always wanted to learn how to dance and now that I am living in the Caribbean, it seemed like a great time to learn a Latino dance. So I found an eight week Salsa & Bachata training, which I am absolutely loving!
How do you maintain your business as a trailing spouse who moves frequently? This is exactly why GC was the best decision I have ever made. My husband is an expatriate and we change countries often; working with GC allows me to keep working wherever I go without having to search for a new job every time. All I need is my laptop and phone, and I can work from anywhere!
What advice do you have for someone who relocates often to get “plugged” into a new community quickly? I think going to restaurants and looking for sports clubs/associations is the best way to network with people.
Working from home is tougher than you think, but when you are surrounded by an amazing team, even virtually, everything is easier. Even from a client perspective, knowing they benefit from the whole team’s knowledge-share but are able to have one point of contact to help them on a worldwide level is simply perfect.”
