This year I celebrated seven years with Bellomo & Associates. What a whirlwind it has been!
Honestly, it so easy to come to work that I am not sure how it has been seven years already.
My friendship with Jeff began when I was a waitress at a local downtown restaurant, and it blossomed from there. Jeff and his wife frequented the restaurant and always requested me if I was working. His iced tea and her chocolate martini were always ready to be served just as they were being seated.
Such little things spoke volumes to Jeff and Whitney, so much so that in a conversation with one another over dinner one night, they had a crazy idea—an idea that came to fruition via telephone as I was on a family vacation.
It went a little like this:
“Hey there! This is Jeff. I have a crazy idea. How would you like to come interview for a position that is open in my firm?”
Jeff explained the position. I was intrigued because customer service had always been my strength. My vacation ended and I interviewed for the position the following Monday morning.
By 1:00 p.m. the same day, I was the newest Client Service Coordinator with Bellomo & Associates.
I had always enjoyed the fast-paced restaurant life, as well as the quick cash that came with waitressing. When offered the position, I was a new mom, and the job offered a set schedule and stability. The thought of being home with my brand-new little girl every night was more than a blessing. Never in my life have I had a “big girl job” that has lasted this long!
I can’t put into words the impact that Jeff and the job has had on my life. The colleagues I get to work with each day are family—it is nothing short of amazing.
The Bellomo family and the clients we serve have made the last seven years so rewarding. I look forward to many more Bellomo & Associates anniversaries!
