#Duckumentary - Jackie Chapman

Today we speak with Jackie Chapman, Front Desk Receptionist!

What’s your favorite thing about working with your team/department?

Communication! My team communicates well and is helpful in EVERY situation. Each team member is genuine and exercises an enormous amount of patience with me.

Outside of work, do you have any favorite activities or hobbies?

Yes! I plan & execute small Christian-based community events like bus trips to Lancaster, cafés, and concerts.

What’s the best piece of advice you have been given relating to your job/career?

Be open to learning new things.

What’s one thing you never leave home without?

I have a few. Prayer, gum, cell phone, and VIP Poop spray… LOL You never know!

What do you do here at EDA?

I am the awesome, enlighten your day Receptionist!

Cats or dogs? Why?

I prefer neither, LOL! Because I have outgrown taking care of children! However, I have a BAD 8-month old Yorkie mix with waaaaay too much energy!

What is your favorite part of your job?

My favorite part of my job is chatting, learning, and laughing with everyone! The many different walks of life are exciting!

If you were planning your favorite meal, what’s on the menu?

A nice piece of grilled sirloin, baked mac & cheese (my way, of course), fresh picked green beans, a Pepsi or Lemonade, and a slice of homemade yellow cake with meringue icing topped with coconut!

How do you stay updated on industry trends and advancements, and are there any recent developments that have caught your attention?

Ugh! Google, ABC News, Facebook, and infomericals. Well, be leery of flying objects like drones! You never know who’s who!

And no! I would much rather watch Looney Tunes or movies than who’s running for President!

What's your proudest accomplishment, either in your professional or personal life?

Being redeemed from poor choices early in life! Raising my children, graduating from college in my 40's, having experienced love once, and getting hired by EDA! 😁
