Q: What’s the best thing about Zenput?
MW: “The people and as a result the culture at Zenput. Everyone is super friendly and willing to help, which isn’t always easy to find in the workplace. It is very motivating to come to work everyday and be surrounded by a group that is hardworking and constantly encouraging each other to be better. I am very thankful to have been able to join such an awesome company!”
Q: What does your workspace look like?
MJ: “It’s pretty organized. I have gold desk accessories (i.e. stapler, tape dispenser that looks like a dog, notary embosser, paperclips, etc.), a Zenput coaster that we made at work, and a small file holder. I also always have at least one calendar on my desk. I plan all of our events and so am constantly looking at due dates and timelines.”
Q: What qualities do you particularly value in working with someone?
MJ: “Hard working, friendly, honest, trustworthy. People who communicate directly- collaborative.”
Q: What’s the coolest thing you’re working on right now?
MJ: “Currently I am working on coming up with new direct marketing campaigns and redesigning our booths for our trade show presence.”
Q: If you could pick one superpower, what would it be? Why?
MJ: “Being able to teleport. Travelling all over the world would be a breeze!”
Q: What’s your secret talent that few people know about?
MJ: “I’m pretty crafty. Ever since I was little I’ve always had some type of side hustle that has to do with my latest hobby. I’ve done everything from learning to make full on fondant cakes and making them for birthdays and weddings to taking floral design classes in different countries and planning/designing all types of social events. My latest hobby that I’ve taken up is gardening on our patio. Still perfecting that one – It’s much easier to arrange then to actually keep them alive.”
Q: Where’s your favorite place you’ve ever traveled?
MJ: “Either Cairo, Egypt or San Sebastian, Spain. It was incredible to get to see real mummies and walk inside the pyramids. It really came in handy that I am so short while walking through the pyramid tunnels! However, the foodie side of me loved San Sebastian. If you ever want to “bar hop” restaurants San Sebastian is the place to go. With tons of tiny restaurants where you can only stand all over the place it is a regular thing to walk into these restaurants order a “pintxo” (personal appetizer sized plate) and maybe a tiny glass of wine and move onto the next place!”
