Receiving this award and having Paula nominate me. The fact that she felt I deserved this is a great accomplishment.
I think I excel in knowing more about computers and linking business to technology. A lot of other people think of our job just as serving lunch and they don’t think of us as making money.
To keep applying for more positions and to reach higher in foodservice.
My shyness. I was able to do that by becoming comfortable with the people that I worked with and the kids that I’m around. They make it easy to come out of my shell.
When you have a kid who is in kindergarten and they go off to another school and they see you and remember who you are.
I would like to be more involved in leadership. I also plan on going back to college to study to be a foodservice director.
A little girl urinated on my foot. She was standing next to me and she backed up. I asked her what she was doing and she just got really quiet. I looked down and she was going to the bathroom.I was also electrocuted. The power strip for my computer didn’t have a back on it. When my computer shut down I went to flip the switch on the power cord, I grabbed the wires on the back of the strip and was electrocuted. At the time it was rather scary, but now that it’s all over, I can laugh at it.
