WELCOMING COMMITTEE OF 1
Hi, my name is Jessie.
I’ve been with Team Fusion for more than 3 years. My primary responsible is to demonstrate Team Fusion’s Inspired, Empowered and Engaged team culture philosophy.
My superpower is being the most enthusiastic welcomer for everyone who visits our Team Fusion home office. While I wish I could have more opportunities to bond with clients in their work places, I love being on hand to bring joy to you via zoom, and I happily protect the office when my team members are away.
Although my CV lacks business experience, I do understand about flow. I have a hidden talent of reading how fast a river is flowing and can swim in a straight line to intercept a ball every time.
My hobbies include eating, fetching a ball all day, destroying a bone in minutes and harvesting raspberries. I love long walks on the beach and the bush, eating, being with humans, eating and generally being friendly to anyone 2 or 4 legged people I meet. Did someone mention food?
If you’re in Riverhead, ring the doorbell and come in for a quick pat ahem, I mean chat. There will always be an enthusiastic welcome and a wagging tail for you.
