Getting to know you

We thought we would have some fun and introduce you to some of the AHA Crew over the next couple of weeks. We asked everyone on the crew (including Paul and myself) a few questions. First up, our Toronto-based Account Executive/Writer Lori Simeunovic’s responses.

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I’m married with a 6-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter. I moved out east from Calgary in 2001 (going against the grain of most people, but we love it out here). I can also read tarot cards.

What do you see as your communications strength?

Adaptability – my clients have included high fashion, air shows, horse shows, luxury resorts and telecom (to name a few!) and I’ve not been an expert in any of those areas prior to working with them. I love learning about new industries.

What interested you in joining AHA?

The corporate culture, forward thinking mentality and the great client list.

What five words describe you professionally? Personally?

Same for both – outgoing, adaptable, professional, creative and thorough.

What kind of beverage do you drink first thing in the a.m.?

Water. The only coffee I’ve ever tried in my life was Turkish, when I had my grounds read by some psychic lady. In university, a can of diet coke could keep me up for days…

Who do you think you were in a past life?

An oracle.

What makes you laugh out loud?

The things my 6-year-old son says to me. (i.e. “If a mommy and a daddy make a baby together, does the daddy have to go to a skin store so the baby can be made?”)

When you were little what did you want to be when you grew up?

Cher.

What five people living or dead would you invite to a dinner party?

I would keep this one to family, past and present, since everyone is scattered around the world…kind of boring, I know, but what the heck, I am going to say to Jesus or Einstein over salad???

What’s in your refrigerator right now?

A slab of salmon, a roast chicken, a head (bulb?) of fennel, lots of fruit/veggies and a bunch herbs/condiments. This early in the week, things are still looking good in there (by Saturday it’s a different story).

What five CDs would you take with you to a desert island?

The soundtrack for Love Actually, anything by Blue Rodeo, Puccini’s La Boheme, Soundtrack for Motorcycle Diaries and Sharon, Lois & Bram (for the kids, who I’d also take with me!).

What question do you wish someone would ask you?

What can I make you for dinner tonight?

What’s your answer?

Roast beef, please.
