Staff Spotlight on JJ – Master of Production
Q: Tell us a little about who you are…
A: I am a very personable and outgoing person who loves to make the best out of every situation. I feel as though no man or woman is better than the next and that we all need to work close to one another to really expand our horizons in life. Having the privilege to work for such a great company has allowed me to have a multitude of opportunities that I never thought were possible or that I would ever even come across in my life. I have been with the company now for 3 1/2 years and still wake up every morning excited to come to my job and work with my friends. It really takes a unique work environment to be able to say that your coworkers are not just team members but lifelong friends and that is one of my favorite things about working at Steve Spangler Science.
Q: What do you do at Steve Spangler Science?
A: I help oversee the production of the fun kits and educational products that we provide to our great customers. I also oversee the coordination of having Goodwill come into our facility to help produce some of our products which in turn helps us out a lot by keeping our production demands down. Thank you Goodwill!!!
Q: What do you like best about what you do?
A: I love knowing that the product I touch not just only helps further and expand the education of kids but also puts the fun back in science. Being able to work here gives me a comfortable feeling of knowing how much the company gives back to the community in various ways. It helps me understand the significance of a family owned and operated business and the importance of the great morals they work and live by.
Q: What is your favorite Steve Spangler Science moment?
A: My favorite moment(s) would be when we were able to go down to Weather and Science Day at Coors Field. Having that many kids and teachers that are excited to learn about science/education is incredible and really wow’s me till this day. I am hoping to see this breathtaking event come together again this year. Keep your fingers crossed!
Q: What is something you wish every SSS customer knew?
A: I want every SSS customer to know how much we appreciate your feedback as well as input. We put so much hard work and dedication into our product and ordering process that we are always in search of how to improve on it to make the best experience for our customers. Thank you — all you guys ROCK!!!
Q: What is your favorite science experiment?
A: I would have to say my favorite is WCIB-250 Cloud in a Bottle. It still till this day amazes me to see a cloud right in front of you. My second choice would be WEXB-050 Bouncing Bubble Kit just because who doesn’t love to bounce a bubble in your hand. If you haven’t tried either one, you are missing out.
Q: What do you like to do when not on the job?
A: I like to stay active, especially outdoors. I love snowboarding, hiking, camping, spelunking, and running outside just on a random path to see where it ends. Enjoying time with my family and friends is definitely the highlight of my days though, no question about it.
Q: Anything else you’d like to share?
A: “In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” – Abraham Lincoln
I live my life by this quote because of its importance and truth. I ‘m just saying…
