In this installment, we will introduce our Account Manager, Kara Trombly. We sat down with her for five minutes to learn about everything from her pet peeves to the one food she can’t live without!
How long have you been with TeamBonding?
I’ve been here for 7-8 months!
What is your most memorable TeamBonding experience?
The first time that I went to the team charity bike build. I was taken not only with the facilitator’s ability to reach out to the group he was speaking to, but also when the children came out to surprise the group. It was really amazing to watch the children receive the bikes.
What do you do in your spare time?
Mostly just hang out with my husband.
What’s your favorite place in the world to be?
Biggest pet peeve:
Dirty dishes in the sink.
What can’t you live without?
Lately it’s been macaroni and cheese.
What is your biggest fear?
I can’t really think of one. Is it bad that I’m not afraid of anything?
