Meet Shana! Shana works at our corporate office in Milford, CT as an Administrative Assistant. We sat down with her to learn more about how she got started at Total Mortgage and what she enjoys doing in her free time.
What brought you to Total Mortgage?
I was working as a retail associate at Goodwill at the time, and I really needed a change of pace—I had been at Goodwill for nearly four years and I didn’t see any chances for growth. Luckily I found Total Mortgage and I love it here! I’m especially appreciative of how much the company as a whole value upward mobility.
What was your first job?
My first job was in college—I worked at the front desk of a recreational building called The Stood! It was really fun, I would always have my friends with me during my shifts and if they got bored they could go play pool or an arcade game. There was also an art gallery space that showed off student work, spaces for bands to perform, and a cinema room!
Do you have any pets?
I have two dogs: Cassie, an Anatolian shepherd/Great Pyrenees mix, and Buddy, a lab mix. They’re total goofballs.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I read a lot of poetry these days—Natalie Eilbert is one of my all-time faves. I also love hiking when the weather is nice enough for it!
What is the first thing you would do if you won the lottery?
his might be a boring answer but I’d probably pay off my student loans first. But then I’d go on a month-long tour of Europe. 🙂
What’s on your road trip playlist?
A lot of songs from Joji, Aminé, Jpegmafia, Oliver Tree, Talking Heads, Willow, Grizzly Bear, Pavement, and The Magnetic Fields!
If someone were to come to your town, what is one local spot you would send them to & why?
Definitely Scoopy Doo’s (weather permitting)! They have amazing ice cream; my favorite flavor is probably their marsh flavor. There’s also The Plate, which is an incredible breakfast spot—I’ve never had a dish there that I didn’t like!
