Here’s a little bit about the front desk maven in the new North Annex, Carrie Watson:
Title: Administrative Assistant
Year Started at Elite: 2013
Any unique hobbies, talents, skills, experiences, etc.:
My grandmother taught me how to crochet when I was young. As I got older, I taught myself to read patterns and do more intricate pieces. My new passion is knitting. I’ve been learning how to knit socks-something I’ve wanted to do for a long time.
What would you consider to be your passion outside of work? How did you get started in it? Any advice for anyone looking to try this activity?
About 15 years ago, I discovered working out at Jazzercise. The ever-changing music and routines never get boring. I have also made some wonderful friendships over the years– another added bonus.
Proudest moment in life so far:
My husband and I have raised three wonderful children.
Why did you choose to work at Elite?
I had an opportunity to fill in at the front desk during others’ vacations.
What is something that customers/colleagues might find surprising about you?
I can speak Polish. My grandparents lived with us when I was young and Polish was their primary language.
