How long have you been with TeamBonding?
For a total of 9 years; I worked as an Event Manager from 2007-2010, left to help care for family for a few years and then returned in 2013 to run the entertainment side of the company. At the beginning of 2018 I was brought back to the TeamBonding side to help with program development and event management as a Senior Program Specialist.
What is your most memorable TeamBonding experience?
The first Bike Build I ever planned was the biggest one we had ever done at the time and watching it all come together at the end when the children received their bikes was an experience I will never forget. The event even made the local news in Hartford!
What do you do with your free time?
I have two young children and they are just the coolest little people so I spend a lot of time with them and my husband Kevin. We especially love going to the beach or for long family hikes!

Team building: It is a very common term that is often discussed in many organizations today as a means of trying to get employees to accomplish common goals. Although the term itself may have developed a more negative meaning over recent years, Forbes Magazine says, “Team building is the most important investment you can make for your people. It builds trust, mitigates conflict, encourages communication, and increases collaboration.” In order for this to happen, you have to be innovative when coming up with team building activities. Try to think past the often used group picnic idea, and implement team building practices that will allow employees and coworkers to use their strengths to bring better, long-term value to your business as a whole.
