Part of a recurring series where we ask a Full Contact employee a couple of off-the-wall (and yet revealing) questions.
1. Who are you, and what is your role at Full Contact?
Amanda Crisafi, and I’m the Office Manager.
2. Speaking of roles, who is your personal role model? (And tell us why)
I would have to say I have two role models, and that’s mostly because if I said one sister’s name, the other sister would have fomo (editor’s note: for the unitiated, “fomo” is short for “fear of missing out”). My two older sisters have always been and will forever be my role models. They show me more than anyone knows: What it is to be an independent, successful woman but also what it takes to have so much fun along the way. They are a big influence on who I am today, and I thank God to be blessed with two older sisters I call my best friends.
3. What’s the best piece of advice you ever received (and then ignored)?
“The best way to lose weight is through diet and exercise.” I’m full Italian. I like my pizza and pasta.
4. If you could magically become anyone else in the world, who would it be and why?
Fen Montaigne, an award-winning journalist and author. This man spent years in Antarctica studying, interacting with and living among penguins. It would be a dream come true for me to do the same. Anyone who knows me knows about my obsession with penguins…
5. And while we are imagining things, what is your Full Contact superpower?
The Incredible Candy Girl, All I am missing is the M&M-sequenced cape. I keep employees running with a steady stream of sugar, smiles, and office supplies. That thing they call the Full Contact fifteen… yea, that’s my fault. Sorry, I’m not sorry.
6. We know you do amazing things at Full Contact, but what do you do that’s kind of amazing outside of these four walls?
In my spare time, I write creative stories and poems. Although sometimes girly and inappropriate, I fill my nights escaping in my own thoughts and words.
7. And finally, how do you make Full Contact in your job?
That is precisely what my job is – Full Contact. I am constantly in contact with someone or something, if it is an employee asking for help or a client calling in or coming to the door needing assistance, there I am. I make it my job to know what is going on at all times, who is where, and what is coming next.
