Where do you live?
Where are you from?
How long have you worked at ROOST?
Since August 2015
Job at ROOST?
Operations and Service Coordinator – Assist with servicing conferences held at the Conference Center at Lake Placid, and maintain and tracks ROOST contracts.
What do you like about working at ROOST?
I find it enjoyable to work with my coworkers to continually market and assist in bettering our regions. It’s easy to go to work everyday when your coworkers seem a little more like family.
What are your three favorite things to do outside of work?
1) Spend time adventuring with my husband and dogs.
2) Hang out with family/friends.
3) I love to cook and try new recipes when I have free time.
Tell us about your pets and/or children.
I have two amazing rescue dogs, Hoagie and Frankie. They are both boxer lab mixes who enjoy the Adirondacks and all of the adventures.
Who is your hero and why?
My parents. They raised five children (who I think turned out pretty well). They taught us to love, live, and do unto others as you would like done unto you. They are selfless, and I hope to be half the person each of them is.
What are you passionate about?
I am very passionate about sports. I love watching and or partaking in anything competitive.
What’s the last movie you went to? What did you think of it?
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I loved the movie! The movie reminded me of Harry Potter of course which was one of my favorite series during my childhood.
