Edmunds employee since 2011

What is the coolest thing about working at Edmunds?

ROWE! I love being able to do my work from wherever I want, whenever I want. It makes work more enjoyable and I do a better job because I can work when I am at my best!

Tell us about your favorite Edmunds memory?

Six months after starting at the company, I was included in a video at the All Company Meeting. At first I was terrified to be in a clip that everyone would see, but it actually turned out very well. It was so nice to feel like an important part of the company, even though I had only been there for a short time. Edmunds does such a great job of making everyone feel welcome and included.

What do you like to do for fun?

Mostly I like to try new things and travel the world. I have gone sky-diving, zip-lining, parasailing, and ran a half-marathon. When I'm not exploring, I love to read for my book club and play my french horn in the Santa Monica College Wind Ensemble. I also love almost everything you can do outside: swimming, riding bikes, hiking, kayaking, you name it.

Tell us about your first car:

It was a 1997 Honda Civic with a manual transmission. It also had blacked out windows and metallic blue pedals and gear shift. I could also change the color of the dashboard to green, blue, red, or yellow. It was such a cool first car!

Tell us about what you currently drive:

I currently drive a 2008 Volkswagen Jetta. It's not as fun as my Civic, but probably more lady-like, which is, of course, my goal in life.
