Getting to Know… Maureen

Getting to know… Maureen. She has been a member of Quota for 29 years!! Her favorite snack is chips and cheese and a whole list of others. Maureen’s favorite movie is “The Shawshank Redemption”. She says she just loves the story of the bond that develops between the Tim Robbins character and the Morgan Freeman character.

Maureen was asked is she has ever wondered how scientists measure the size of the universe? When she looks up at the stars, what does she think about? Maureen thinks, “How in the world did they come up with those constellations?” She thinks about the ancient astronomers first drawing those dotted lines………and how for hundreds and thousands of years people have been looking up at that sky…

The kind of person who brings out the best in Maureen is… A balance of talker and listener.  A person who’s got an opinion but isn’t inflexible.  A person with enthusiasm and a positive outlook.

Which would be better? Winning one of those magazine publisher’s sweepstakes on TV or being recognized as a national hero? Maureen would prefer to win the sweepstakes, thank you!  When can she pick up her check?

What if a friend telephoned when Maureen was watching her favorite television program? She’d take the call.

Who’s Maureen’s favorite news anchor? She used to love Peter Jennings.  She was very saddened by his death.  Now she likes Jim Lehrer.

Thanks Maureen for sharing a little bit about yourself!!

    I realized this morning that I just stopped reading about Maureen during the meeting. My mind was all over the place. I hope everyone reads this and sees the entire “Getting To Know You… Maureen”!!
