For our first “Employee in the Spotlight” interview, we spoke with Amy Sassaman, customer service representative at Borsello Landscaping. With her creativity, enthusiasm and passion for her job, we have no doubt that Borsello customers receive first-class service.
What can you tell us about your background and how it got you to where you are today?
Amy Sassaman: When I was growing up, from toddler to young adult, I always had a creative flair. When I was a kid, I would play with finger paints, glitter, ribbons and anything colorful I could get my hands on. In school, I organized and color coated my notebooks, paperwork and pens. I doodled and drew on my homework and even my hands. I took various art classes over the years to discover different techniques and mediums and I always had an eye for symmetry and object placement. In my later years in school I focused on my grades and getting into a good college. I knew that I wanted to do something practical, but still exercise my desire to create.
Did you know exactly what you wanted to do when you first entered college, or did you need time to decide on the right major?
Amy Sassaman: I started my freshman year of college at the University of Delaware with an “undecided” major in the Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics. I declared “Management” that spring, but after taking several classes I realized that I needed a different direction that would allow me to explore my creative passion. I switched to “Marketing” and found this to be exactly was looking for in a career path: an avenue to use my artistic ability and to directly see the fruits of my labor. In 2011, I proudly graduated with my B.S. in Marketing.
Have you always been in customer service?
Amy Sassaman: I have worked for several local businesses over the last 10 years and have been involved in an array of marketing and advertising campaigns which include: designing promotional material, creating product displays, developing employee sales goals, updating social media sites, and more. Working and going to school helped me decide that I truly enjoy the variety of aspects marketing has to offer and wanted to take it to the next level after graduating.
How long have you been with Borsello Landscaping?
Amy Sassaman: I started working at Borsello Landscaping in March.
Do you enjoy your position so far?
Amy Sassaman: I never thought I would love a job as much as I do working here. It is hard to pick one thing I love most about the company, so I have to say a combination of the people and the environment in the office are the best. When you are treated fairly and with respect, can have an equal mix of fun and seriousness and are given tools to succeed, what’s not to love about your job?
