Here Comes Heather

by Admin Emeritus ‎08-16-2011 11:42 AM - edited ‎08-22-2011 10:04 AM

It’s that time again.  Time for me to help you learn more about the different folks around the community.  I thought it would be good for you to meet the newest member of the Community Management Team, Heather_VZ.   


 Here is what she had to say:


HJackson_Portrait.jpgJaime_Lee:  So, I understand that you have worked for Verizon for awhile.  How long have you worked for Verizon?

Heather_VZ:  I have worked for Verizon for 11 years. 


Jaime_Lee:  I understand you are also a customer of Verizon.  What Verizon services do you currently have and what do you think about them?


Heather_VZ:  I have had VzW for 15 years and Verizon phone service for 11. I love both my services.  I couldn’t function without my Droid- it’s my calendar, rolodex, email & Facebook connection & favorite time waster (thanks, Angry Birds!).  We live in a rather rural setting, so reliable home service is really important and Verizon has never let me down. Now, if only they’d get FiOS to my area!



Jaime_Lee:  What boards do you frequent the most?


Heather_VZ:  I’m relatively new to the boards, but so far I love the Verizon at Home, Small Business & Off Topic boards. I’m sure I’ll start diving into the rest soon and come up with new favorites to add.


Jaime_Lee:  Why do you think you will enjoy being part of the Verizon Community?


Heather_VZ:  I love how helpful everyone is.  Perusing the boards has saved me a lot of time calling in for help or contacting one of Verizon’s click-to-chat agents. I can read the boards at my leisure and not have to worry about business hours or walking away from the computer for a while.


Jaime_Lee:  When you aren't "trolling the boards" what do you do for fun? 


Heather_VZ:  I have two little kids, so they suck up a lot of my time…


Jaime_Lee:  Oh, that I can relate to (LOL)…what are the busy activities in your household?


 Heather_VZ:  Doing things like soccer and baseball and PTA.  When I’m not spending time with my family, you’ll find me with my nose in a book. I’m a voracious reader- I go through 2-3 books a week!  I’m also a TV watcher- I love a good TV series where I can immerse myself in a new world (RIP, Buffy- gone but not forgotten).  I also started running this summer- I’m running my 4th 5K at the end of August.


Jaime_Lee:  Wow, you are kinda putting this fellow working mom to shame.  I don’t see any 5Ks in my future, but you will need those running shoes to keep up with our active Community Members so we are glad to have you.  Smiley Happy


Jaime_Lee:  So before we go…anything about your social media or community experience you would like to share with my friends here in the Verizon Community?


Heather_VZ:  I was one of the leads on the previous Surround Verizon Community (may it RIP, also).  I tend to frequent photography blogs and forums, as well as book forums- I’m always looking for a good read!  I’m thrilled to get back into social media and work with your friends here on the Verizon Community.
