Name: Amy Geist
Title: Client Service
SH&J team member since: November, 2014
As the newest team member of SH&J, what have you enjoyed most about working here so far?
I’ve enjoyed getting to know the team and everyone’s diverse backgrounds and knowledge. I’ve been impressed with SH&J’s culture and everything we stand for. It’s been rewarding to be a part of something so grand.
We hear you love to cook. What’s your favorite meal to make?
I enjoy cooking almost anything as long as it’s for great company. I believe food brings people together and forces them to interact and communicate. My favorite meal to make is Thanksgiving dinner with my mom. I usually go to her house in the morning and we watch the parade while we make stuffing, spaetzles, and the usual traditional family recipes. Having people enjoy something you made is so rewarding.
If you could have any super power what would it be?
I would have the power to create a soundtrack based off of what was happening at the time. I think the ability to have a certain song play that corresponds with an occurrence would highlight and deepen it. Just like it does during a movie, but it would be for life in general.
What’s the best thing you have ever gifted to someone?
I think the best gift you can give someone else is the gift they wouldn’t think of or buy themselves. The thought and meaning behind the gift is ultimately what it’s about. Every year I used to buy my dad a gift but would always feel like I could do better, so a few years ago I baked him cookies and mailed them to him. He was so excited and surprised and now he asks for them every year instead of me buying him something else. Sometimes the littlest things have the biggest impact.
If you could do anything, and money wasn’t a factor but you still had to work, what would you do?
I would assist local animal shelters and organizations. I am a huge animal lover and believe you should help those who do not have a voice to help themselves.
