Surprisingly (or not so surprisingly given the amazing people at MH), this onboarding process has been the smoothest I’ve ever had and the second most efficient; the Marines are hyper-efficient with everything they do, but not nearly as smooth as MH (nobody from MH has yelled at me for eating my lunch too slowly or made me do push-ups because I failed to tuck my shirt in properly). I’ve had Zoom meetings with everyone I am working with so I can put faces to names, as well as a Zoom meeting with all the other newly hired folks. Benefits were setup within the first few days and all other logistical steps were completed without issue.
What are some things you’ve worked on, so far?
I’m working on reviewing expert reports and depositions, drafting an MSJ, and coordinating non-party discovery with multiple entities in order to ensure we receive all the documents we need to fully defend our case.
What was my first concert?
My first real concert was a Metallica/Soundgarden concert in 1996. In the words of the mid-1990’s, “It was all that and a bag of chips, home skillet.”
What is my current playlist while working?
I’m a big fan of Pandora stations because they do a pretty good job of finding music similar to an artist one designates. My three favorite stations right now are (and yes, I am aware I will be judged harshly for my choices): Ed Sheeran Radio, Old Dominion Radio, and Kane Brown Radio. If I had to choose one more (which I don’t, but I will anyway), it would be Staind Radio.
Three fun facts about me (at least we think they are fun):
I can knit. I don’t as much anymore because I live in the greater Houston area, so warm clothes aren’t a necessity. When I lived in Michigan, though, I could be seen wearing a new hat, scarf, or set of gloves frequently.
I like to build things from scratch in my spare time. I’ve built furniture (beds, tables, and chairs), portrait frames, fences, and a 7-foot tall doll house, to name a few.
I have a weekly FaceTime call with my two best friends (we are spread out across the country) where we discuss important issues like: (1) whether it is appropriate to wear a tie with a button-down collar; (2) whether the fluted bezel on certain Rolex watches makes them look dated or classic; and (3) which Die Hard movie is the best. For the record, it is Die Hard 2, no question.
