Professionally, do you like the structure of a corporate environment, or do you prefer a more casual setting? Do you like the adventure of a start-up or the relative stability of something more established?
I love working in a casual setting. I want to know what my job is and have a goal but I prefer wearing jeans to work every day and not have to worry if it takes me a little longer to get my eyebrows waxed. I want stability though so I prefer the company be established. I've worked for both and start-ups don't always have money, benefits, or payroll companies. I refuse to be a 1099 employee ever again.
Have you enjoyed giving back to the community in a particular way (e.g., helping the Humane Society, delivering meals to the housebound elderly, etc.)?
I used to enjoy working at the meals for the homeless place but I have not been able to do it for years.
When it comes to hobbies and interests, did you enjoy some pursuit in the past that you have since abandoned?
I love horseback riding. It is one of my biggest passions in life and one that I have ignored for years now. At first because of time and money and then because I hurt my knee and finally because I had gained too much weight and am embarrassed by how I look and how out of shape I am. I can no longer pull myself onto the horse but have to use a step stool. I wish I could get back involved especially since I know what a good work out and confidence booster the activity is to me.
In your "ideal" day, what do you picture yourself doing?
Going horseback riding in the morning on the trails. Then in the afternoon taking the dogs to the beach for a long swim. Then home for a nice homemade dinner and a movie with my boyfriend.Do you prefer the independence of working alone or the collaboration of working as part of a team?I much prefer working alone on my projects but being in a team setting aka a room with other people.
What beliefs are you passionate about? Are you an animal lover, humanitarian, a conservationist?
I am a huge animal lover and a believe that BSL should not be allowed in the United States. I know many "pit bulls" that are much better behaved than labs or aussies that there are no legislation about. I have to two dogs that I love very much that look like pits and because of that people are constantly wary and concerned. The most they would do is like you to death as they just love everyone. I compete with one and the other is my homebody boy. I can't stand punishing the breed. You should always punish the deed not the breed.
Try It!: Have you always wanted to try skydiving, hang gliding, or something else crazy? Or have you ever wanted to take a class in business management or something a little less "crazy"?
No. I want to go back to college and finish my degree.
