Monica and Sue are the two newest managers to join our Time Square office! We recently interviewed them for our 'Meet the Manager' segment on our blog! Check it out below:

1.)  How long have you been working with At Your Service?  Sue and Monica: We've both been here about a month now! 

2.)  Where did you grow up?  Sue: Rockland County, NY Monica: Phillipines

3.)  What’s your Alma Mater?   Sue: Binghamton University. Monica: University of St. La Salle.

4.)  If you had to work in any other industry, which would it be and why?  Sue: Tourism- I love people and the travel industry as a whole. That or I'd be a writer - as I love words and being able to express my point of view. Monica: Healthcare as it is my background of education. I have a lot of experience in the healthcare industry. I started from the bottom of the work chain and made my way up. I have an in-depth understanding with how the system works.

5.)  What attracted you to the hospitality industry?   Sue: The great interactions! Also, knowing I could make a big difference in someone's day and that they would remember me. Monica: The passion I have working with people, the connection, the satisfaction of working together, and making it easier for everyone to co-exist in society.

6.)  What’s your favorite part of working with At Your Service?  Sue: Getting to know the staff and feeling I'm part of something bigger than myself. Monica: The people I work with in the office, and inter-office co-workers! Also, the clients together with staff members. When the event is successful, both clients and staff members are happy – it inspires me to be better both personally and professionally. 

7. )  What do you do outside of work?  Sue: Explore NYC, try to capture that perfect camera shot, spend time with friends and family. Monica: Having a great time with my friends, eating good comfort food, and just enjoying everything around me. Making the most out of what’s in front of me! 

8.)  Which is your favorite AYS location to visit?  Sue: I haven't been to any but would love to see what our new Chicago office is like! Monica: BOSTON! I love the Pats! 

9.)  If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?  Sue: Eastern Europe, esp. Austria and Prague. I love exploring European cities! I am Austrian in my heritage and have been told by many people I should experience Prague. Monica: Maldives - the beach is a place close to heaven I believe.

10.)  What’s your favorite way to unwind after a long day of work?  Sue: Checking out some of the great food found in many of the Queens neighborhoods and taking a long walk. Monica: Have a drink! (Haha!) Sorry, but it’s true. A wine a day keeps the doctor away. (Just Kidding!)

Meet the Manager: MacKenzie Collins, AYS NYC

1.)  How long have you been working with At Your Service? I started with AYS in November 2016! 

2.)  Where did you grow up? I grew up in Rhode Island.

3.)  What’s your Alma Mater? I went to DePaul University!

4.)  If you had to work in any other industry, which would it be and why? I would be a judge on any/all food competitions on the Food Network.  I love cooking and have a borderline unhealthy obsession with food.  Any job/industry where I would get paid to enjoy food is the end all be all for me.  Dream big, I know.

5.)  What attracted you to the hospitality industry? I really enjoy working with people and the notion that every day brings something different.

6.)  What’s your favorite part of working with At Your Service? The people. Since I started, I have been welcomed by our team with open arms.  It truly feels like one big family.  I could not ask for better coworkers!

7. )  What do you do outside of work? I have been planning to join a gym for the past 3 years, but until then, I enjoy the occasional (daily) glass(es) of wine and spending time with friends and family.

8.)  Which is your favorite AYS location to visit? I have not yet had the chance to visit any of our other locations, but would love to go to DC.

9.)  If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why? Greece.  I have always wanted to go and I recently found out I am half Greek, so it seems right.

10.)  What’s your favorite way to unwind after a long day of work?   I like to head home and de-stress by cooking a nice meal while listening to Etta James Pandora.  If not, dinner with friends or family is always a nice treat.
