JM’s team works together for the WHOLE online presence of our clients. And while our web design, web development, web marketing and web hosting teams are on the forefront, JM has many behind the scenes faces that help run the day-to-day and internal operations.
We are taking time to highlight each team member at JM; and next up is Lindsey, JM’s Finance Director.
Lindsey brings to JM extensive QuickBooks knowledge and a strong background in mathematics. Since coming onto the JM team, Lindsey has streamlined our invoicing and internal processes, making our lives MUCH easier. Lindsey brings sincerity to our office and a witty sense of humor. Here’s a bit more about Lindsey…
In Her Career
How do you balance your career at JM and family?
JM has always been committed to families. I am part-time most of the time, and my family loves that I love my job and can flex around needs with my hours and working from home. If Mommy is happy, everybody is happy!
How has JM helped you in your career development?
JM has offered me continual personal and career growth with educational opportunities, challenges, projects, transitions and goals. We build each other up, and we hold each other accountable!
What are 3 words to describe JM?
THE BOMB DIGGITY.
What do you find the most challenging at JM?
Honestly, the transition from working only from home last year to working at the office two days per week on team days was a challenge because I wasn’t used to the simultaneous conversations, both in-person and on the phone, going on around me. Now I am very skilled at being in the zone at my desk in my corner and popping my head up for the frequent office fun that comes up.
What has been your favorite project at JM?
In the next few years, I would love to add a minor or another major to my college goals in order to be able to serve JM in a higher capacity.
What is the favorite part about working for JM?
This is a difficult question to answer. (I hope my boss isn’t reading this…) My favorite part of JM is my boss, his wife (who used to do my job and still works for JM), and our awesome dream team of employees I get to work with every day. It’s easy to be completely dedicated in working with our positive team members under Boss’s leadership.
On a Personal Note
Are you messy or organized?
Do you have a favorite newspaper, blog?
Well, here’s the thing: I don’t really read the newspaper or blogs—I actually don’t even watch the news. However, I do look up a lot of recipes on WellnessMama.com. For actual reading, I read mystery/thriller novels. Confession: I’m currently making my way through my grandmother’s Reader’s Digest Condensed Novels volumes my parents gave me last year.
If given a chance, who would you like to be for a day?
It’s too much work to try to be someone I’m not, so I’d just stay me
If you could do another job for just one day, what would it be?
If you were stuck on an island what three things would you bring?
My husbands and my girls. However, if they couldn’t come, I would bring a tent, a water filtration system, and some seeds for hardy, edible foods. If one of those items was not available, I would substitute a book or my cross-stitching to keep me sane.
What does true leadership mean to you?
When you don’t have to look for it, then you know it’s truly there.
What is an ability you wish you had?
I wish I could learn ballet as an untrained adult.
Where is your favorite place to eat?
My bed. I know, it’s not healthy sleep hygiene, but I just sometimes want to read and snack in the most comfortable place in the house.
You’re happiest when?
I am happiest when my house/office is clean and organized (A.K.A.- when my OCD tendencies are appeased).
