WHAT'S THE BEST THING TO COME OUT OF QUARANTINE?

May 2, 2020
 
During challenging times, we always search for the silver lining! After 8+ weeks of adhering to Governor DeWine's stay at home orders, we asked our team, "What is the best thing to come out of quarantine?"
 
Here are their answers:
 
Tammi Beres, Client Services Specialist
Tammi has enjoyed seeing her family more often. She is grateful for the dedication of all front line workers - grocery store employees, gas station attendants, sanitation workers, janitorial services, maintenance personnel and others who never thought their line of work would put their health at risk. She appreciates everyone is the medical field, especially her daughter who is a nurse.
 
Sally Stratton, Office Manager
Quarantine has made Sally appreciate the environmental impact and wildlife rebound we are witnessing. Ecosystems have recovered from the lack of human intervention. She is hopeful humans will develop empathy for animals, resulting in stronger conversation efforts.
 
Amanda Cummins, Client Service Associate
Amanda has enjoyed spending more time with her two young boys. With daycare centers closed, her family members have helped out with the kids and she's been able to pay off her student loans and secure a bigger apartment for her family. She is grateful for the opportunity to stay employed, has become closer with her coworkers and appreciates their hard work.
 
Tricia Katzenmoyer, Branch Associate
A parent of two teenagers (one headed to college this fall), Tricia is grateful for the added family time with them. Quarantine has forced her to slow down, enjoy a less hectic pace and spend less money.
 
Jocelyn Sperko, Chief Operations Officer, Gerber, LLC / Branch Associate, RJFS
Jocelyn and her family have continued to prepare and enjoy dinner together each night, but quarantine has given them the opportunity to try new recipes and have the boys help more in the kitchen. Since she hasn't been able to see her extended family in person, they've continued their board game rivalry by playing games together online.
 
Lori Fellows, Retirement Plan Professional, Gerber, LLC / Branch Associate, RJFS
Lori used the extended time at home to toilet train her two year old!
Congratulations, Lori!
 
Erik Roemer, Chief Compliance Officer, Gerber, LLC / Lead Advisor, RJFS
Erik has enjoyed the extra times with his two high school sons, playing basketball, ping pong, playing cards, completing jigsaw puzzles and watching TV . He's also had weekly happy hours with his college friends.
 
Alison Forche, Relationship Manager
Alison is grateful for the extra time she has spent with her son, now home from his first year of college. Together they've completed puzzles, talked, taken walks and gone to the grocery store. She's had a chance to simplify her life, get more sleep and fresh air, and spend more time connecting with friends and family.
 
Kyle McGrath, Advisor
Kyle has appreciated a less hectic schedule. He's enjoyed having more time to walk local golf courses and work on his golf game.
