What do you enjoy most about working at Thinking Organized?
I greatly appreciate the opportunity to work every single day with fascinating people on solving problems and improving systems. The resilience, humor, and creativity of the people I work with, tackling the joyful puzzles of language and organization, are beautiful.
What has been your greatest personal and/or professional achievement, and why?
A major personal achievement of mine was completing two marathons a few years ago. I have never been athletically inclined, and when I decided to begin jogging, I didn’t even enjoy it. I am proud of this accomplishment because I both literally learned to like something I never thought I would enjoy, and then developed and executed a plan to complete a long-term goal related to this newfound interest.
What interesting fact would your clients & colleagues be most surprised to learn about you?Ever since I was a child and saw it on TV for the first time, I’ve been captivated by rock climbing, and I’ve just taken it up as a hobby within the last year. It’s never too late to try something new!Jessica Bauman, M.S., CCC-SLP
