Q & A with Laura
Tell us a little about yourself.
I come from a long line of Owen County farmers. My family has been in this community for several generations. I plan to stay in this community and hopefully have a farm.
How long have you been with Broadlinc?
I’ve been with Broadlinc for a little over a year.
What brought you to the company?
I was looking for something more career-oriented to improve my work/life balance. Broadlinc offered that and continues to provide growth opportunities. Personally and professionally.
What do you like most about being a Service Assurance Coordinator?
I love that not every day is the same, and I face different challenges.
What are you most proud of in your career so far?
I’m proud of the current scheduling process that we have been able to create here.
What advice would you give to someone that wants to pursue a career in your field?
My best advice is to be patient and learn to think on your feet.
How would you describe the culture at Broadlinc?
We have a very collaborative and friendly work culture.
What do you like most about the work we do at Broadlinc?
I like that we improve people’s quality of life by providing a service many otherwise wouldn’t have access to. I also love that Broadlinc gets involved with the surrounding communities by attending events or providing a free public service.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I have too many hobbies. I’ve mostly been doing home renovations. I enjoy just about everything. Gaming, carpentry, hiking, and I love the process of building or creating, from working with clay and epoxy and putting together model spaceships to building structures.
If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?
My superpower would be super strength, hands down. You can run fast, lift, climb, and jump over anything.
What’s one thing on your bucket list?
Hiking Mt. Fuji.
What piece of advice would you give to your younger self?
Be patient and take it easy on yourself. Rome wasn’t built in a day.
