Meet Employee Spotlight April Guest
What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?
I live in a tiny house on 50 beautiful acres in the lovely state of Maine.
What is your favorite food? Why did you pick this as your favorite?
I have many favorite foods, but on the top of my list is pizza. Pizza may seem run-of-the-mill and not so exciting, but all pizza is different. From your local shop to the chain to the wood-fire gourmet, all of these options are going to deliver remarkably different pizza experiences. That’s what I love so much about it, the variety and uniqueness of each one from the dough to the sauce to the toppings! Pizza can offer many surprises along with being a very comforting food, which I also love about it.
What was your favorite vacation?
My favorite vacation was Barcelona, Spain a few years ago with my husband. It’s a vibrant, beautiful city. I love to travel to new places. Travel allows me to open my mind to new people and experiences and expands my worldview. Barcelona stands out for some of the best food, warm welcoming people, amazing architecture, and access to the Mediterranean Sea!
Before working at your current job, what was the most interesting job you had?
My husband and I used to own a neighborhood bar and grill in Portland, Oregon. Being a small business owner was one of the best experiences I have had. It forced me out of my comfort zone and allowed me to wear many different hats. I was the owner, bookkeeper, cook, barback, inventory manager, you name it I did it! I was never boring! I met so many interesting people and was able to learn so much. The experience also gave me a personal perspective on the challenges that small businesses face every day and how hard it is to succeed in that space, but also how rewarding it can be as well.
What’s unique about the culture at your company?
The culture at Bonney really stands out! I work with an amazing group of people who really care about the candidates and clients. It makes going to work a lot easier when everyone is working towards a positive goal. I also appreciate the role Bonney is able to play in directly impacting the local community.
