WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO JOIN MAGNOLIA?
"I think Magnolia chose me just as much as I chose them. I had been at my job for 6 years and I had been in such a repetitive routine for so long that I needed a change. Magnolia was the perfect opportunity for me to do what I know, and also do what I don't know. I had stopped learning at my previous job, which made me feel as though I had stopped growing. At Magnolia, I grow a bit more every day."
WHAT AVE YOU LEARNED ABOUT WORKING FOR A SMALL COMPANY?
"Everyone's opinion matters. At such a small company, your voice is heard and changes are made. At a larger company, an individual may be lost in the chaos of the environment. Your success does not shine through as much as it could or should because there are so many other individuals doing the same thing. You feel less important. Watching Magnolia grow is like watching myself grow because I am a part of a team that has made it happen. It feels wonderful to be a large part of something great."
HOW DO YOU FEEL YOUR PERSONALITY SHINES THROUGH AT MAGNOLIA?
"At Magnolia, we have a set of core values to live by, including presence, transparency, and FUN. Many would describe my personality as fun, and being encouraged to express that side of myself at the company has helped me form bonds with people not only professionally, but personally as well.”
