A typical day in my life includes…
Depending on the day of the week, it could start at 4:40am getting dress to make it to the 5am fitness class, or I get to sleep in for one more hour and wake up at 5:30am enjoying my morning coffee (I LOVE COFFEE) while texting/emailing people with follow-ups (sorry for the early messages, as I mentioned to all that works with me, you really don’t have respond that early ☺). Then, my workout at my home gym, or hiking, or gym, or jogging down The Art Mollen Fitness Path thru the Beautiful views of Biltmore.
I don’t like cooking, but I cooked a couple times per week early morning so it’s ready dinner.
I enjoy having breakfast with Dave (my partner in life), we have fun and interesting conversations, and it’s me more ready to go set the world on fire!
What I do during my workday; I am lucky, I get to work with different departments from corporate employees to maintenance technicians. I am always working on improving our people, and systems for a midsize company, and growing. I support corporate employees in operations, and property owners to maximize returns and execute the underwritten business plan.
I am a Mentor, Trainer, Coach, Recruiter, Asset Manager, Resourceful, Team Builder, Motivator, Life coach, and a personal therapist haha (where’s my therapist at the end of the day LOL). And my list goes on…
I love my career! I am very passionate about what I do, and I still enjoy it after 19 years in the industry.
After a beautiful day at work, I love coming home (if I don’t have to go to my kid’s events) to enjoy a delicious dinner or go out to a nice dinner with my family, or friends, or have a date night with my favorite man in the world, Dave.
