28 Dec Staff Spotlight: Sharron Miller
The Staff Spotlight is a feature that runs in each edition of ROOST News in which, every other week, we introduce you to a different, randomly chosen member of the ROOST team. It’s a fun, smart, eclectic bunch, so make sure not to miss this feature in each ROOST News, and check out past Staff Spotlights here.
Where do you live, and where are you from?
I live in Lake Placid, and originally from Plattsburgh.
How long have you worked at ROOST?
I have worked at ROOST since 2006.
Visitor Service Manager
My job duties include overseeing the visitor service department, scheduling staff for both the Lake Placid and Saranac Lake offices, and gathering and recording visitor data. I’m also responsible for ordering the supplies, maintaining equipment for the office, and the important job of keeping the office supplied with enough caffeine (coffee) for everyone to perform their ROOST duties.
What do you like about working at ROOST?
What I enjoy most working for ROOST is the team spirit of the office and how we are all working together to promote our area and to make sure our visitors have great experiences once they arrive here.
What are your three favorite things to do outside of work?
Outside of work, I love to spend time with my family which includes a husband, three daughters, three dogs, and a kitten. I’m totally into books, spend a great deal of time reading, and now I have started writing my first piece of fiction.
What’s your favorite book and why?
One on my all-time favorite books, which I continue to pick up from time to time, is “The Power of Positive Thinking” by Norman Vincent Peale; it has literally changed my life on several different occasions.
Who is your hero and why?
My hero is any person that dedicates their time to erasing the stigmatism of mental illness, especially involving children and young adults.
What’s your favorite place that you have traveled to?
I love to travel around different states, but my favorite location is southern Louisiana, where I lived for a short period of time. New Orleans is my favorite city there.
What are you passionate about?
My passion is music, all kinds, and the emotional feelings it evokes.
