To introduce both of them on our website, get to know them with this Q&A! Come back next week to meet CEO, Nina Swift and Senior Associate, Laura Madeira!
Question: What’s your favorite time of day?
Isabelle: Evening. I find it a peaceful time of day after work when I can relax. Whether it’s watching TV with my roommates or going out to dinner.
Emma: Morning. I like waking up knowing I have a full day ahead of me with a brand new start. Breakfast is also my favorite meal of the day so that’s a bonus!
Question: What would you say are your biggest strengths?
Isabelle: I would say that I’m a strong communicator, friendly, kind-hearted, grounded, and optimistic.
Emma: I would say my strengths are that I’m trustworthy, self-aware, compassionate, and loyal.
Question: What inspires you?
Isabelle: My friends inspire me because I’m surrounded by other women who are determined and driven towards their long-term goals and finding something that they love to do.
Emma: I’m inspired by people who are passionate about what they do. When you love what you do, whether that’s a hobby or a job, you’re able to give all of yourself towards it without letting anything stand in your way.
Question: What is one thing people don’t know about you?
Isabelle: I like to knit. It’s something I picked up over COVID, although I’m still working on the sweater I started two years ago!
Emma: I was born in the UK and lived there for 10 years! I wish I could say I still had an accent.
Question: What is one thing you can’t live without?
Isabelle: Pets! I love my golden-doodle, Blue!
Emma: Definitely my dogs, George and Dempsey!
Question: What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
Isabelle: Be yourself.
Emma: No duty is more urgent than giving thanks.
Question: Where is your favorite vacation destination?
Isabelle: Nantucket. I grew up going there and most of my childhood memories are of me spending time with my cousins on the beach.
Emma: Long Beach Island, NJ. I’ve been lucky enough to spend a lot of my life there with my family and I just love the beach!
