What was your first job?

Domino’s Pizza.  I tried to apply when I was 15…they only hired 16 and over. I walked back in on my 16th birthday. They hired me on the spot for having good follow through.

What is your favorite movie or TV show?

The Usual Suspects & Office Space are my favorite movies

What is your favorite book?

Yikes….I can’t seem to narrow down my all-time favorite…so many great books! My most recent favorite is “The Help” though.

Do you have any pets?

We have 5 pets. Officially 4 cats & 1 dog….but the dog tries to be a cat and one of the cats thinks it’s a dog.

What is the most played song on your music playlist?

The whole “Thank You” album by Stone Temple Pilots currently.

What is the most exotic place you have ever visited?

On a business trip in the 90’s…there was some strange restaurant in the Dallas, Texas area with 20+ years of men’s necktie’s snipped and stapled to the walls. I will never forget all those ugly ties. I obviously need to get out more & add to my “exotic” destination list!

What are your favorite kinds of projects to work on?

The “just made someone’s day easier” kinds.

What do you like best about the people you work with?

That everyone genuinely loves being here & being a team.  Everyone engages in working together to help our clients, coworkers, etc. without hesitation. There’s no “I” in payroll…..haha!!

What’s your favorite part of working here?

That there is always something new to learn and a collaborative effort to learn it together.

Who inspires you to be successful?

My kids. When something seems unreachable to me….I think of how I want them to know hard work and positive thinking will result in success.  That inspires me to press on.

If you could be a superhero, what would your super powers be?

I would love to be able to do that nose twitch thing and have the whole house cleaned, laundry folded, hair & make-up perfect….sigh…one can dream!
