What do you do at Model55?

I am responsible for overseeing multiple departments and working with their managers to make sure all our projects run smoothly. I also manage and create internal processes / programs based off a clients specific requests and I occasionally get to design a project.

 

What is your past experience?

I graduated from Wentworth Institute of Technology in 2008 with a degree in Interior Design. At Wentworth I did 2 Co-op programs with a small design company in Bolton, MA that specialized in designing Senior Living Communities. I have also worked in retail and visual merchandising as well as part-time in a Senior Living facility as an activities assistant.

 

What is the most inspiring part of your job?

I love that we enhance blank spaces for communities to inspire potential buyers. Without our models people would not see the full potential of a space or they would not feel confident moving a loved one in. Our team is a great group of creative thinkers and problem solvers and they all inspire me everyday.

 

Complete the following sentence:

The most important thing I learned before high school was to take the first shower in the morning.

 

What advice would you give a candidate who wants to work at Model55?

Have a positive attitude and always be willing to be a team player.

 

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 

Home renovation projects with my husband are all I do on the weekends but I also love spending time with our 3 dogs (Hera, Betty & Maizie), friends, family and we love going to different venues to see our favorite comedians.

 

What is your favorite book(s), and/or  tv show(s)?
  • Let’s Talk About Myths, Baby (podcast)
  • Water for Elephants (book)
  • The Princess Bride (movie)
  • Bob’s Burgers (TV)

 

Cats or dogs?

Doggos!

 

What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

It’s not so much as advice but I am grateful everyday that my parents taught me how to be independent.
