*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 a member of the Corporate staff, Leigh Hurst. A Norfolk native, Leigh joined Mosquito Joe in March as our Administrative Assistant. She brought with her years of customer service experience from the restaurant industry and even spent some time as a yoga instructor. Whether it’s coordinating events, keeping the kitchen stocked, helping our franchise partners across the country, or just managing the office in general, Leigh is integral to the success of Mosquito Joe.
Here are some fun facts about Leigh, so you can get to know her like we have!
What led you to work for Mosquito Joe?
I heard of a position that was available here, came in for an interview, and thoroughly enjoyed every one I met. Plus, the office is a pretty cool space.
What is your favorite part about your position at Mosquito Joe?
Every day there is some thing different. Some days it is about the snacks, but most days, it is the people I get to interact with.
What are the biggest strengths professionally that you bring to the Mosquito Joe team?
I’ve worked in customer service since day one at my first job. I thoroughly enjoy helping others and meeting people.
What’s your favorite Mosquito Joe tagline and why?
“Itching is so last season”…well isn’t it?!
If they made a movie about your life, who would you want to play you and why?
Natalie Portman, she can pull off a shaved head.
If you could plan your ultimate vacation, where would you go?
The list “where I wouldn’t go” is much shorter than the list “where I would go”. The ultimate vacation is when there is no end to exploring. Bouncing from country to country exploring sights, food and building friendships while submersed in different cultures is a dream.
How do you like to spend your time outdoors?
It depends on the season! Summer is my favorite time of the year, so any and every thing outdoors. Winter out West is beyond beautiful, especially while snowboarding. Fall and Spring in the East are beautiful times to watch the change in the seasons from Mother Nature.
How attracted are mosquitoes to you?
I was born and raised in Churchland/Portsmouth, VA…by mosquitoes.
If you were shipwrecked, what three items would you want to land on shore with you?
The ship, my water filter, and ice cream.
If you could invite three people to a party, dead or alive, who would they be and why?
Dolly Parton, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Caitlin Cimini. Once you google who they are and watch about 30 seconds of them speaking, you would want them at the party too!
