Avomeen’s Living Our Values Awards program provides us with an opportunity to celebrate those who exemplify our core values and guiding principles, and the Personalized Service award recognizes a scientist who goes above and beyond to exceed client expectations. We’re learning more about Amy Markowitz, the recipient of this award, in a Q&A session:
For those who don’t know you (yet), what do you do at Avomeen?
If you could switch your job with anyone else at Avomeen, whose job would you want?
One of the Project Managers or Business Development people—I love talking to people & making them smile. I spent several years working in the Service Industry and miss the social aspect of the job.
What’s your all-time favorite Avomeen moment or experience?
Last fall when we spent an afternoon celebrating Diwali. It was amazing to learn about the culture of so many of my co-workers through food, music, and dance. It was a great way for everyone to come together and share a smile.
What kinds of hobbies and interests do you have outside of work?
I read and spend time outdoors with friends and family when I can. Other than that my 2 American Bulldogs, Bella & Bruiser, keep me pretty busy.
What’s your hidden talent?
I can eat an entire bag of Doritos in one sitting (I am not proud of this).
Tell us three things most people don’t know about you…
- I spent a year living in Israel
- I went to culinary school, I love to cook
- I’m afraid of heights
