Getting to know your Escapees

For those of you that don’t know me, I am Rebecca Jacobs and I work with Carole Williams and Kathy Carlson on customer implementations. I’m one of the newer members of Team Escape AND I am also one of the handful of remote workers at Escape.

Bob Towery, Jennifer Escamilla, Rebecca Jacobs, Robin Fiske, Terri Hammond, Leslie Bailey and Ramona Marshall at last year's year-end celebration.

While Escape has regular get togethers, including off-site celebrations for year-end and other milestones, my remote status means that I don’t have face-to-face time as often as I like. I miss the pieces of joy around the proverbial water cooler, like what my fellow Escapees did over the weekend, their hobbies, or any bits about their families.  

To help me get to know them a bit better, I posed a question on our internal messaging system, asking about their hobbies. I loved the responses and thought you would too!
