At AG Consulting Partners, we are honored to work with a diverse group of people with a variety of talents and interests. This month, we are highlighting Janette Maricich to learn more about her work and passions outside of the office.
What’s your background? Where did you grow up and go to school?
I grew up in Miami, FL during my early childhood before my family moved to Seattle. The culture change from “Little Havana” to the Northwest was exciting and new, and I knew early on I would be a PNW resident for life. I attended the University of Washington where I studied Theater and Sociology.
Can you tell me about your current project?
I am currently working with a technology company’s global solutions team to support seller experience. I represent the team on various process improvement workstreams and triage feedback from sales teams to drive forward solutioning for tools, reporting, and process guidance.
How are you staying motivated, productive, and sane during this extended period of remote work?
How I’m staying motivated: trip planning and spending time with loved ones
How I’m staying productive: strong espresso and taking walk breaks outside
How I’m staying sane: humor and snacks
Where is the best place you’ve traveled to and why?
PSA: Everyone should visit Scotland! I traveled there a few years back and very eager to visit again. I explored Edinburgh and Inverness in particular, and enjoyed touring castles including Stirling and Tantallon, which were two of my favorites. I took a boat tour on Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands, and I’m sorry to say that the Loch Ness monster did not make an appearance.
What’s something most people don’t know about you?
I’m fascinated with ghost towns and abandoned places – buildings, hotels, malls, even islands. There is something so intriguing about seeing once-thriving environments left in solitude and reading about the history of why time stood still there. My current fascination is the abandoned Discovery Island that is part of Disney World Resort.
Any favorite book, movie, or TV show genres?
Book: Historical biographies and autobiographical comedies
Movie and TV Shows: Sci-fi and comedy
Any favorite music genres or artists?
Electronic, funk, electro-funk, downtempo, rock, funk rock, and let’s not forget the 90s dance masterpieces!
