|Coffee Break with a CMX Team Member:
Jennifer Larrow, Client Success Manager
For this quarter’s Employee Spotlight, our Client Success Manager, Jennifer Larrow, decided to share a bit of herself by using (an abridged version of) the Proust Questionnaire. It has its origins in a parlor game popularized (though not devised) by Marcel Proust, the French essayist and novelist, who believed that, in answering these questions, an individual reveals his or her true nature.
- What is your greatest fear?
Aside from the obvious? Encountering arthropods (insects, spiders, centipedes, crustaceans, etc.). Technically, horseshoe crabs are arthropods, but I don’t really mind them. Lobsters and crabs just look too much like giant bugs.
- On what occasion do you lie?
I’m generally terrible at lying. But for the sake of a good surprise, I can sometimes pull it off!
- When and where were you happiest?
I’m happier every day than the day before because I love my family and friends a little more with passing each day. But if I had to pick a moment, it would be walking out of the all-company meeting on my first day at CyramedX. I was downright incredulous about what an amazing team I’d just joined. Career satisfaction and friends and family I love deeply? As a kid, I couldn’t have dreamed big enough to dream for all that I have now.
- If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I would volunteer regularly.
- If you were to die and come back as a person or a thing, what would it be?
Hmmm. Maybe an orca? Wait—I don’t like seafood. A giant panda! Hopefully I like bamboo. Or maybe I’d come back as a Bair Hugger. Seems like a pretty sweet gig.
- Where would you most like to live?
I love living in New England. But I still daydream about picking up and moving to Seattle. Currently, my husband and I are house hunting and the town we most hope to find a home in is Mystic, CT.
- What is your most treasured possession?
We own two pieces of original art that we love and could never replace. Those and the family photos!
- What do you most value in your friends?
That feeling that you don’t have to be “on” in order to spend time with them. You can just be yourself and they love you for it.
- Who are your favorite writers?
Nelson DeMille, J.A. Jance, and Dan Brown. I let my husband the historian read most of the nonfiction and share with me what he learns. Is that cheating?
- What is it that you most dislike?
After the creepy crawlies from question #1, those little dry bits of milk around the opening of the carton. That and software that complicates your life rather than simplifying it!
