**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 the newest member of our corporate team, Jodi Ramoino. Jodi started her career in the environmental field with an Environmental Science Degree from SUNY ESF at Syracuse, but then decided to try her hand at franchise sales at Liberty Tax. Ten years later and one of Liberty’s top performers, she is now MoJo’s Director of Franchise Development. Our “Joe-Dee” will tell you one of her favorite things about her job is being able to ask people questions, so we thought we’d reverse the rolls and send a few her way. Welcome to the team, Jodi!
What are the biggest strengths professionally that you bring to the Mosquito Joe team?
I like to work hard and play hard. I give it all I have professionally so I can go home and feel justified in all the things I like to do personally – dine out, travel, shop, etc. I’m also pretty resilient, and in sales you have to be!
If you could donate $1 million to any charity, what charity would it be and why?
I would donate the money to cancer research. Both of my grandmothers died of cancer – one at 51 and one at 67. Both were far too young and I barely remember either of them. I wish they could have been around longer for me to get to know them because from what I hear, they were both pretty amazing women.
If you could invite three people to a party, dead or alive, who would they be and why?
Well parties are meant to be fun so I would probably pick Kristen Wiig (Saturday Night Live), Mindy Kaling (The Office), and Justin Timberlake. I’m a big comedy fan and all three are pretty hilarious, and JT could sing to us too!
What’s your favorite Mosquito Joe tagline and why?
Nature is for humans too. I love being outside but I abhor insects. MoJo makes it possible for me to enjoy my backyard again.
