Our employees make up this company, and we love each of them for the unique talents and skills they bring.
For January, we are so pleased to introduce you to Vanessa. She is our Human Resources manager and works in Customer Care.
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I’m a Colorado native. My husband and I have a one-year old daughter named Sophia. It’s been fun to see her learn and grow. I feel like it gives me a fresh perspective on things I might otherwise take for granted. Life is fun with her! She’s amazing.
How long have you worked at Fix My Blinds?
Since December 2015.
What do you like most about working here?
I’ve spent the majority of my time here working as a customer care agent, which is great. I really enjoy working closely with others and helping people. In my position, I get to do that with employees and customers. I like everyone who works here. We all bring our own unique strengths and talents to the team. It’s a fun group of people.
What are three words you would use to describe yourself?
Friendly, creative, strong.
What is your favorite thing about Colorado?
I love Colorado Springs. There are so many things to do here. Now that I have a baby, I appreciate this city so much more than I used to. It’s a great place to have a family, and it’s nice that my whole family lives here, too.
What is on your bucket list?
I want to travel. We’re going to visit Hawaii and Disney World but we’ll wait until Sophia is old enough to remember. We’ll plan other trips in the future too. I’d like to own a motorcycle one day, like a Harley or something similar. I’ve also recently heard about taco festivals in Denver. My mind was blown. I had no idea there were entire festivals dedicated to tacos, so that’s the newest addition to my bucket list.
If you could travel anywhere, where would it be? Why?
I change my mind frequently. There are many places I’d like to visit. Most recently, we talked about going to New York. I want to walk through Central Park, visit museums, and experience the city.
What are some special talents/fun hobbies you have?
When I have time, I like to cook or go out and try new restaurants. I love food. I enjoy doing yoga. We haven’t done it recently, but we like taking weekend trips to the mountains. I’m looking forward to doing that this winter!
Stay tuned for more employee spotlights!P
