In our next installment of “Meet The Staff”, I am very happy to introduce you to one of our recent hires, Carol Noe. She is an Account Rep for both sales and rentals, and has been a very busy and productive member of our team from the day she arrived. Her incredible background in event planning and management and her ability to think “outside the box” to help our clients’ visions come to life all make her a truly valuable asset to our entire team. Please read on to learn a little more about Carol and see why we are so lucky to have her as part of the “Whatters” family!
When did you first start at Sew What? What were you originally hired to do, and how have your duties changed since working here?
I started at Sew What? in February of 2015. I was hired to be a Sales/Rental Account Rep and that’s pretty much what I’ve been doing ever since–with the exception of writing an occasional blog post.
If you could take a vacation to anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
It would involve the beach since that’s my favorite place to be. I’ve always wanted to go to Bora Bora and Australia so I’d probably combine the two if money was no object!
What kind of work did you do before coming to Sew What?
Prior to Sew What? I was in the “event planning” world. Most recently I mostly worked on the Super Bowl. I was an Event Coordinator at a limousine company where my first event was the Oscars and surrounding parties on Oscar Sunday, and I worked 23 hours straight and could barely see after that! I also worked at another event company where we did movie premieres, Golden Globe Parties, and Grammy Events, just to name a few. This is also where I met Megan almost 18 years ago!
Do you have a special talent?
I enjoy sewing when I have time. I can’t sew clothes but I have made some beautiful quilts and cool beach bags.
What is your favorite memory/circumstance/event from being part of the Sew What? family?
My first multi-media backdrop will always stick out in my mind because it was such a cool one, and it was such a learning experience quoting it and working on the design details of it with
What is your favorite sports team/TV Show/Book/Movie?
Currently I am into American Ninja Warrior and America’s got Talent. When The Voice is on I’m glued to the TV. I also enjoy the Nightly News with Lester Holt, formerly Brian Williams. Don’t really watch too many TV series—I’d rather be either lounging by the pool or out being active doing something fun!
What are some of your hobbies?
I’m very excited to start riding my new bike, I used to be really into it but after riding my bike from San Francisco to LA many years ago I shied away from it. I love to go to the beach, swim, go shopping and do anything artsy crafty.
What project have you worked on recently that was interesting or challenging?
I love the Foo Fighters so I really enjoyed working on their recent project with Sew What?, and the client was also really easy to work with.
Anything more about your time here at SW?
I truly enjoy working here. The atmosphere is wonderful and the team that is in place is absolutely fabulous!! And who can’t love working where there are cute office dogs always coming around looking for treats and head rubs?
