How did you first learn about Snap36?
I first met the Hunt’s from our hometown as we attended the same parish and socialized at several events. As life got busier with children, our paths seldom crossed until I ran into Chris at a local spa and inquired about her new start up business. I was immediately intrigued and knew this was something I wanted to be a part of.
What has been your favorite project at Snap36?
My favorite project at Snap36 was Parts Town as it helped us launch our new business model for on-site services. I was so proud to be part of such a successful project from execution to the largest deployment of 360° & 3D Spin.
Where is your favorite lunch spot to go to when you are at work?
Whisk Chicago situated in the Ukranian Village….house salad with lime cilantro vinaigrette & a peach flavored ice tea.
What is your favorite song of all time?
Sing Together, by Train
What is the last TV show you watched?
This Is Us…I am hooked on this series, mostly the flashbacks as it is reminiscent of my childhood when times were so much simpler and family time was always available.
What is your favorite animal?
My favorite animal is my Yellow Labrador Retriever, Sonny.
Who is your favorite band or artist?
I enjoy all types of artists and genres depending on my mood from Pop, Jazz, CoffeeHouse, Country and Alternative Rock.
What is your favorite part about being in sales?
My favorite part is the people I meet through the sales process. I am most fulfilled when I know that I have uncovered a problem and can present a solution. A happy customer becomes a friend for life.
Where is your favorite travel spot?
My favorite travel spot is Rome, Italy. There is endless history, the Amalfi Coast where mountains plunge into the sea, numerous views of terraced gardens, and endless stairs taking you to secret beaches.
What is your favorite family tradition?
My favorite family tradition is the 4th of July. Festivities begin the night before with the fireworks followed by our neighborhood parade, carnival and our annual hosted barbecue where we play yard games and hold competitions.
What is your biggest phobia?
Crickets and centipedes as they both move way too fast and you can never catch them.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
When people talk with food in their mouth.
What has been your favorite part about working at Snap36?
My favorite part about working at Snap36 is being a part of the growth. Additionally, witnessing all the firsts that our company has acquired – our first trade show, installations globally, and our first ranking on Inc. 5000.
