Landforce Q&A: Tricia
This is the first in a series of Q&A posts to help you get to know the Landforce family. Keep an eye on our blog to see new posts from the staff and crew!
- Job Title
Operations & Communications Manager
- How long have you worked at Landforce?
I started in April 2018
I’m originally from Columbus, OH, and have lived in Pittsburgh since 2009.
- Biggest accomplishment
Honestly my most recent accomplishment is starting the lawnmower on the first try. Some of my proudest achievements are buying a house and becoming the board chair of a statewide nonprofit.
- Favorite summer activity
Some of my favorite summer weekends involved spending all day sitting on a porch swing with my dog while reading a book.
- Goal you’re currently working on
Actually finishing things. I’ve started quite a few projects around the house that need to be finished, including painting, patching drywall and installing new light fixtures. I’m also hoping that the plants in my garden have a lower mortality rate this summer than they did last year thanks to knowledge I’ve gained from Landforce.
- Favorite place in Pittsburgh
The Allegheny River. Last summer I joined a rowing team and became more familiar with the amazing resource that is Pittsburgh’s rivers. Rowing and kayaking on the river is so peaceful, and I need to do more of that this year.
- Favorite things about Landforce
The work culture at Landforce is unique, in the best possible way. It’s amazing to work everyday with people who are so present and giving of themselves no matter how much else is going on.
- Most challenging part about being a Landforce team member
I jumped into Landforce three weeks before the crew started, which is one of the most challenging parts of the year. Within that time frame it seemed like there were a million systems to learn and do to get ready. After that it feels like I can do anything.
- Something that you’re enjoying listening to/reading/watching right now
So many podcasts! I’m counting down the days until season two of Limetown, my favorite audio drama that is finally returning this year after ending on a chilling cliffhanger in 2015. Until then I’m listening to The Bright Sessions, which answers the question of what would happen if superheroes went to therapy, and The Black Tapes which is a fictional Serial-style look at a series of interconnected paranormal events.
