03 Sep Meet the Team: Hannah Thomas
Hello September! And hello to the newest member of the AM Transport family, Hannah Thomas. Hannah’s been with AMT for about a month. Welcome Hannah!
Performers: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Chris Stapleton, AC/DC, Halsey, Tyler Childers
TV Shows: New Girl, The Office, Shameless
Sports Team: I am a Cardinals fan, but I do not typically keep up with sports much anymore.
Beer/Wine: Definitely wine! I really like the wine from Homestead in West Salem.
Skittles or M&Ms: The wild berry Skittles that are in the purple package.
Power Ranger: Blue maybe . . . I am not sure I watched it enough to have a favorite.
What do you think about when you are alone in the car?
I usually go over past conversations in my head and think of all the things I should have said. Usually this is when all the not-so-bright things I have said and done come to haunt me. I also sing a lot.
If you could be any animal in the world, what would you be?
I would want to be my best friend’s parents’ dog. Their current dogs live the most luxurious life I could imagine.
If someone gifted you an elephant, what would you do with it?
I would definitely try to keep it and ride it. I don’t think it would be an accepted pet for me lease though.
Engaged. I have two future stepdaughters, 2 dogs, and a cat.
What’s the funniest thing that’s happened to you recently?
Both of them are at my dog, George’s, expense. A week ago, we were at an orchard, and he was put in his place by chicken. Also this past weekend, we got him a set of rain boots. Watching him walk in them was hysterical.
How did you end up working at AM Transport?
I ended up here when a team member reached out to me about an opening.
What do you do at AMT?
Sales . . . I call people who don’t want to talk to me, and I send perfectly crafted personal emails to people who do not open or respond to them.
What apps, gadgets, etc. can you not live without at work?
Having multiple screen displays is extremely helpful.
What’s the best Christmas gift you ever received and the best Christmas gift you ever gave?
The best Christmas gift I have ever been given was probably my KitchenAid mixer. I have never been the best gift giver, but I always try to get my mom something sentimental for Christmas.
Any thoughts on garden gnomes?
I love them.
How do you recharge?
Cuddling with my two dogs and doing sudoku puzzles.
What are you currently reading or recommend?
Currently, I am reading a book David gave me called Virtual Selling.
What’s your superpower?
I’d like to think I am very quick-witted.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
You can be the sweetest, juiciest peach in the world and you are still going to come across someone who just doesn’t like peaches. It is a good reminder to just be yourself and not worry about what others think. There are always going to be people who do not see eye-to-eye with you, and that has nothing to do with you personally.
