  • I’ve interviewed Melissa Etheridge, Pat Sajak, Josh Lucas, Leann Rimes, Taye Diggs; the funniest was “Magic” Johnson. Don’t forget to ask me about this one.
  • I’ve been sugar free (no fake stuff either) for over 1,200 days.
  • “If you can hear me, go shhhhhhhh…” Want to know what this is about? Join me at any networking event.
  • Favorite movie of all time is “Dirty Dancing”… don’t laugh, just remember “Nobody puts Baby in a corner.”
  • From August to January I shut off all electronics on Sunday. Go Pats!

Heather Ruggeri

  • I have over 100 pairs of shoes (and yes I wear them all).
  • I’ve seen the Bruins play all 29 current opponents & a few of the teams that are no longer around.
  • The only car I’ve ever owned is a Jeep Wrangler.
  • I taught myself to play the guitar.
  • When I bake, I still use the polka dot bowl & the wooden spoon my Meme used over 40 years ago.

Kristin Carlson

  • My nickname is “Giggles”
  • I have a slight addiction to pickles. Preferably ones from AC Produce and Plan B!
  • You can often find me singing loudly in my office, but I cannot promise it is good!
  • I enjoy chocolate chip cookies without the chocolate chips.
  • I break for butterflies. (Just ask my dad about driving lessons).

Cara Cole

  • I have a twin sister who is 5 inches taller than me and two hours older than me.
  • Starbucks baristas always write my name as Carol on my cup – always!
  • I have an obsession with matching my Bath & Body Works hand soap to the season.
  • My favorite flowers are sunflowers.
  • If I was in the Miss America pageant my special talent would be making a shamrock with my tongue.

Jenifer Esile

CDG, Creative Design Guru

  • I knew from the time I was 9 years old that I wanted to be a graphic designer.
  • Knock on wood: I’ve never broken any bones in my body!
  • No matter where I am, if a picture on a wall is crooked, I have to straighten it.
  • I’ve been to 28 states, the District of Columbia, & Puerto Rico, with a bucket list full of more destinations.
  • My craziest trip was an “Everglades walk” through a gator-filled swamp (with pictures to prove it!).

Lauren Mendoza

Office Manager

  • I’m an endurance sports junkie and 2x Ironman.
  • We have a framed picture of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in our living room because it was the best show ever.
  • I have a fear of organized dance songs such as the Cupid Shuffle and Electric Slide.
  • I’ve got a plan in place for the zombie apocalypse. Can’t hurt to be prepared!
  • Sea life loves me. I’ve been stung by a string ray, jelly fish and a sea anemone.

Max Monson-Bishop

Employee Satisfaction Manager

  • I used to look like Bob Marley… I had dreads down to the ground.
  • I prefer to sleep under the covers.
  • My full name is Maxwell Vondogenburgen.
  • One Thanksgiving my Granddad accidentally spilled turkey juice all over me and then my dog-cousin decided it would be a good idea to lick me from head to toe.
  • If you want to be my best friend… bring snacks!

Vinnie Monson-Bishop

Customer Experience Associate

  • I thought I should get orthodontic work, but my under bite has become my signature.
  • I recently was asked to audition to be the mascot for Energizer; think I’ve got the bunny beat.
  • I frequently sport a Mohawk!
  • I love climbing up on my Mom’s desk. Problem is… I don’t know how to get down.
  • My favorite pastime is running through the kid’s water play park. I have a philosophy “the wetter the better”.

Finn Mendoza

Siesta Manager

  • I’m pretty laid back, but if you leave me alone to go have fun without me, I’ll tear up your world.
  • I love naps, but when awake I am an avid squirrel hunter.
  • My biggest food craving is the stale bread from my neighbor’s lawn (meant for the birds).
  • When I’m not at the office I enjoy sniffing around town, getting belly rubs, breaking squeakers in my toys, rolling in mud, trail running, & generally causing trouble (while looking cute doing it).
