Talk Thursday with LaTonya Richardson

This year has started off…cold! It’s been frigid in my area of the country. These are some of the coldest temperatures we’ve seen in years. Wind chills were far below zero earlier this week (-20 real-feel temperature). Nonetheless, I hunkered down and carried on.

Happy 2014! Hope your new year is starting off great. Did you eat black-eyed peas and cabbage yesterday? Or, maybe you had collard greens. Is that a Southern thing?

With the new year brings the opportunity for new things. This week the Talk Thursday series features Jessica S. I met Jessica almost two years ago when I started my current job. She has been a sweet coworker and awesome team member from the beginning. I drew inspiration from (and continue to be inspired by) her energy and love for exercise. We trained [insert air-quotes] together during Fall 2012. These days, I just wave to her as she exits the building for her daily run {Running and I don’t get along}. I admire Jessica’s knowledge and spirit. I may not tell her enough, but I always  appreciate her kind words, her challenges and the advice she gives to me. I’m happy to call her a friend and a peer mentor. Check out her answers below! Read the rest of this entry »
