*Occasionally we like to provide a blog post that will help you get to know Joe. From our technicians to our Corporate staff to our hardworking franchisees – we think our company is full of people you ought to know!*
This week we’d like to introduce you to one of the newest members of the Corporate staff, Dara Ormon. A Virginia native, Dara has just joined our team as Paralegal. She has always wanted to work in the legal field and has spent the last five years working as a paralegal and legal assistant. While doing so, she was also getting her B.S. in Criminal Justice and M.A. in Criminology from Old Dominion University. As a paralegal, Dara will be working closely with our finance and franchise sales departments to make sure everything is in order as we bring new franchise owners on board.
Here are some fun facts about Dara, so you can get to know her like we have!
What led you to work for Mosquito Joe?
Adulting, on LinkedIn. I was looking for a company/brand/business model where I really saw our values aligned. After a little research, I came in for the interview already so excited and impressed by the what I’d read about the company. Everyone I met in in leadership that day exceeded my expectations, and I’m just excited they picked me!
What is your favorite part about your position at Mosquito Joe?
I love how friendly, welcoming, and helpful everyone has been since the moment I arrived. I also love being a part of company that helps people live their best lives and support the dreams of those same people in owning their own businesses.
What are the biggest strengths professionally that you bring to the Mosquito Joe team?
How passionate, driven and excited I am about the paralegal life. I have a pretty extensive background in the legal community and I’m just excited to put it into practice with such a great team.
What’s your favorite Mosquito Joe tagline and why?
Outside is fun again. It reminds me of my carefree childhood days where I’m outside all day without a care in the world. Who wouldn’t want to recreate that memory?
If you could plan your ultimate vacation, where would you go?
Fashion week in Dubai! Riding camels and I can only imagine the amazing photos!
How do you like to spend your time outdoors?
I’ve recently gotten into hiking. I typically only really get a chance to hike on out of town weekend trips or when visiting my sister in Seattle, but I’ve seen some of the prettiest waterfalls and views on hiking adventures.
How attracted are mosquitoes to you?
We’ve been in a relationship now for as long as I can remember, but thanks to Mosquito Joe I can start putting some distance between us. It’s definitely for the better.
If you were shipwrecked, what three items would you want to land on shore with you?
All I need is Wilson! (Cast Away reference) and by Wilson, I mean a guy named Wilson with some very serious boat building and survival skills.
If you could invite three people to a party, dead or alive, who would they be and why?
My best friend Brittany makes every party memorable, Michael Jackson for music, and Dylan O’Brien for comic relief!
