#TeamTuesday: Meet the Staff – Aimee Widenhouse

by Chris Porter on August 22, 2017

Favorite things about your job?

I enjoy working with most people, and try to keep an open sense of humor.  Plus, with handling the billing & such as well, there’s always something puzzling that I have to solve.  It keeps my brain healthy.  Honestly, I just like to keep busy.  I do not enjoy having an inactive mind.  Downtime bores me.

Dream career if not working at ProComm and could make a living:

I guess that I’d have to say a book editor… I’d take my love of reading to the next level.   Or oooh… a travel inspector.  I’d love to just take vacations all the time to different places, and get paid to criticize them.  That sounds like a fun time, and I’d still have time to read as much as I want!

When did you start working at ProComm?

May, 2010

When I’m not at work, I spend my time____?  

Readin’… chillin’… relaxin’.

Favorite album or recording artists?  

late 80- early 90’s are my go to listening pleasures.

Favorite Movies/TV?  

Game of Thrones season 7 premier was highlighted on my calendar!  I’m an action / sci-fi / fantasy fan, but I’ll take a good rom-com on occasion too because, you know, female.

Favorite Books/magazines?

Favorite book is really tough… I read constantly, like non-stop I’ve already read three books this week & it’s only Wednesday, kind of reader.  I love a good fictional story.

What kinds of pets do you have?

I do not have a “pet”, I have a four-legged son named Peanut.  If you ask him, he’s a real boy.  (But really, he’s a chiweenie.)

If you woke up tomorrow as an animal, what animal would you choose to be and why? 

Peanut, ‘cause I’d have the absolute most awesome mom and be spoiled out of my gourd.

If we looked in your refrigerator, what would we find?  

2/3rd’s half empty condiment bottles & a whole lot of coffee creamer.  And a few meager edible things that – how should I say this – you should always initiate the smell test first.

Favorite Foods?  

Steak, pasta & bread. And bacon… mmmmm.  Bacon.

What was your first car? 

Hand-me-down Mitsubishi Galant… Yeah.  I didn’t have a spare key & totally locked myself out of that thing at least four times.  #LocksmithOnSpeedDial

What event do you remember most fondly from high school?  

Cleaning bathrooms at the Charlotte Motor Speedway during race week as the main fundraiser for our band… OH WAIT.. Sorry – you said fondly?!?!  Yeah, noooo.  Not that one then. *I still have nightmares*

#TeamTuesday: Meet the Staff – Anitta Conlon

by Chris Porter on June 27, 2017

When did you start working at ProComm?

March 18,1999

When I’m not at work, I spend my time____?

I walk my dogs A LOT.  I also like to listen to live music at our local breweries, cook healthy casseroles, work in my yard, make jewelry and volunteer with animal charities…I’ve built fences for Chain-free Asheville for the last 8 years, and I also do transports of shelter dogs.   I’m also a huge fan of The Pittsburgh Penguins-Stanley Cup Champs, baby!

Favorite concert(s) you’ve attended?

Recently –  Foreigner.  My first concert was Kenny Rogers.  I went with my Mom and we had matching embroidered pocket jeans and concert t-shirts.

Favorite album or recording artists?

My favorite song is “Vienna” by Billy Joel.  The lyrics really speak to me.

Favorite Movies/TV?

Remember the Titans /John Wick/The Equalizer/The Incredibles / Anything on Food Network / The Walking Dead /Survivor (yes, I still watch it) / Law & Order (new and reruns).

Favorite Books/magazines?

My favorites book is The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski.  I also liked The Goldfinch.  I’m a big Stephen King/ Dean Koontz fan.  I subscribe to Food Network Magazine…for the pictures.

What kinds of pets do you have?

I have two dogs.  Sally Jane is 6 years-old and a black Lab/Pit mix.  She likes to stalk squirrels, rabbits & wild turkeys.  Jackson is a Jack Russell and is 11 years old.  I can’t say the word b-a-l-l in front of him.  He likes to hunt the lizards around my house.

What is one of your favorite vacations you’ve taken?

I’ve been to Jamaica a few times.  The snorkeling and people are the real attraction there.  I really like Charleston for the food and architecture. 

If we looked in your refrigerator, what would we find?

Cheese, vodka and kale.

What was your first car?

1977 white 4-door Chevy Chevette.  I called it the zit.

If you could only travel to one more country, which country would you choose?

Instead of what country, I really want to choose a mode of transportation.  I really want to take a long train ride somewhere.  I want to get my own room and a big window that I can watch as the countryside goes whizzing past.  I will get lulled to sleep by the constant clacking of the wheels and wake up in a completely different place.
