cathy smithOffice Manager from September 11, 1994-Present

Describe what you do in one paragraph:
As office manager, I do a little of everything but in my opinion I feel like I’m everyone’s sister that they can come to with any issue whether personal or professional. I always listen and give my honest opinion when asked. I have been told numerous times by staff that I am a hand holder and at a certain point they are correct. I n my defense I try to always put myself in their situation and treat them as I would like to be treated. As long as I do what I feel is right in my heart, no matter what the situation, I am content with any decision that I may have to make.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you like to be?
I watch House Hunters International and what I see about Costa Rica I believe that is a place that I would love to live and retire to.

What is the one piece of advice you would like to share with the world?
No marriage is 50/50. I have been married 41 years this December and one thing I have learned is to always listen and put yourself in the other ones shoes before you answer. It’s not always about what’s right or who wrong, it’s about respecting the others opinion.

What is your favorite holiday and why?
Christmas. I love the lights, movies and music but most of all spending time with family and friends and enjoying what Christmas is really about.cathy smith 2

What are your hobbies and interests outside of the office?
I have been a work-a-holic all my life so I really don’t have any hobbies or interests. I enjoying karaoke and going to pig roasts.

What is something that you are looking forward to?
Spending more time with my grandchildren. I want to be able to take my immediate family on one big vacation somewhere before I get too old to enjoy it.

Cathy, thank you for your 20 years of service! Our company would not be the same without you!
