Edmunds employee since 2010
What is the coolest thing about working at Edmunds?
I am constantly surrounded by people who really enjoy what they do and are creating something truly unique to our industry. What I enjoy most, is being in a position that allows me to work with everyone across the organization on any given project. The coolest thing is being able to get involved in anything in the business that you feel drawn to - and it's supported.
Tell us about your favorite Edmunds memory?
For me it was our event to help the families, particularly the children, affected by the tsunami in Japan. We held an event that joined with Osh Kosh B'gosh to help donate new clothes to those very much in need. While our aim was for a few hundred, we were completely blown away to see that we raised over 1,000 articles of new clothing to send to Japan. It was such a great moment to see so many people come out to help those who truly needed it. I look forward to working on more things like this.
What do you like to do for fun?
My beloved and I travel, a lot. We love doing home improvements, like building out our home library, ripping up carpet or painting. I love to read; I maybe go through 3-4 books a month. We enjoy riding our bikes to the beach, swimming and building forts in our living room to watch movies. I really enjoy cooking - weekends, particularly during the NFL season so I can cook up a lot of new dishes and test them on all my friends. No bad reviews yet...
Tell us about your first car:
My first car was a black Volkswagen Jetta. I remember my first day getting it and I instantly felt like a big girl — I could do where I wanted, when I wanted...freedom!
Tell us about what you currently drive:
I currently drive a 2005 BMW 325i. FUN car! While I'm not one to be reckless, there is something to be said driving on the 101 at 7am, when the road is wide open, there's a blue sky, windows down and your favorite song is playing, and your Steptronic is giving you the eye... that's all I'll say about that.
