What is your office environment like? Professional and productive!
What technology do you use at work? A Dell laptop and a second monitor.
What technology do you use at home? I usually use my work laptop at home, as well as a tablet.
On a scale of 1 (never) to 10 (always), how often are you connected to your smartphone? About an 8.
What is your favorite organizational tool? I don’t have one favorite tool as I use everything from an actual hard copy Daytimer to multiple software programs such as Outlook, Salesforce, Scrumwise, and Basecamp. It really depends whether it’s a work or personal item. At work, many factors dictate which organizational tool I use at a given time or for a given project.
What website/app/tool are you obsessed with at the moment? At work, I am really into Pardot, the marketing automation module within the Salesforce environment. On the home front, I am into WordPress as I am putting together a new website for our church.
Can you recommend a book? I just read a fiction novel called Keeping Faith by Jodi Picoult. I could not put it down.
What’s your best time management tip? Review and reprioritize your to-do list at the start of every day and work on your most important items first.
What’s the strangest thing in your office? Probably a small cactus plant. It’s the only plant I can’t kill. I do not have a green thumb whatsoever.
