How long have you been with Magnets USA? Just over 10 years. I'm looking forward to 10 more great years!
What’s the best part of the job? The great group of people I get to work with.
What’s the best way to spend the weekend? Being outdoors. Hiking, the lake, cookouts, random road trips to nowhere. Unless it's cold out. Then it's staying in and hibernating. Unless there's a snowman to be built.
If you could give your 18-year-old self one piece of advice, what would it be? Three things come to mind.
What’s one of your favorite childhood memories? Riding around town on the back of my grandfather's bicycle.
Not only are we celebrating the tenth week of our Meet the Team series, but today marks 11 years at Magnets USA for graphic designer Linda Blake. Congratulations to this inspiring, dedicated woman!
So this week, meet Linda , who works hard to create designs that fit each of our customer's business needs and personality.
How long have you been with Magnets USA? 11 years — it has flown by!
What’s the best part of the job? When I see designs and products on our website that I created in years past. It’s nice to know that our customers are still choosing them.
What's one of your favorite childhood memories? When I was in the fifth grade, my oldest sister let me wear one of her necklaces to school for the very first time. She was always doing something very special for me, and this was no exception.
On the way to school, though, I accidentally broke the necklace. I worried all day that my sister was going to be upset with me. When I went home, my sister met me in the hallway by my room. She saw by the look on my face that something was wrong, so she asked if I was okay. I broke down in tears and told her how sorry I was that I'd broken her necklace. Instead of being mad, she hugged me and told me the necklace could always be replaced.
She reminded me that day why she was so special to me. She is one of the sweetest people I know. I am very blessed to have such a sweet, forgiving sis.
What do you love most about your family? My family is very large. My sisters and I don't always see eye to eye, but we do agree that family is important. The older I get, the more I realize that my family will always be there for me when everyone else walks away.
What's one thing you're looking forward to this year? I'm looking forward to my daughter receiving her Ph.D. in mathematics from NC State.
