Matlock is happy to announce our newest team member- Veronica Parker! Veronica will serve as Matlock’s Accounts Receivable/Accounts Payable Coordinator. Veronica brings to the team several years of accounting experience.
We asked Veronica a few questions about herself and this is what she had to say:
Where are you from?
Macon, GA (80 miles south of Atlanta)
Do you have any pets?
Not yet. (Referring to #7)
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why?
I've been told by the description I give of the type weather I would love year round, it would be San Diego (although I've never visited).
I would love to live where I would have to ride a ferry from home to the 'mainland' to shop, eat, and work. Our home would be a historical one rehabbed to a Bungalow style with a yard big enough for my son (and friends) to play soccer, and the weather there does not exceed 70 nor fall below 50. (Apparently, I watch too much of the Hallmark channel)
Do you have any hobbies? If yes, what are they?
Yes. I'm from a family of plumbers and contractors, so other than shopping, I think I am a very creative individual (one of my friends says that I'm always "creating something out of nothing"). So in my spare time, when the traffic light is red, I scan magazines/internet and store items that catches my eye to DIY projects in Pinterest. The only projects I have yet to attempt are building a house and cooking. I think the house would be easier. I love the TV show Rehab Addict.
Who is your favorite superhero/heroine?
My heroine is my paternal grandmother. She did not have internet to Google “how to balance work and family”, but she did, effortlessly. She worked full-time, volunteered with her church, maintained 5 kids/5 personalities, and cooked for them and my grandfather three meals a day EVERYDAY.
Do you have any favorite sports teams? If so, who?
Yes, shopping! Chloe has BEAUTIFUL handbags. Seriously, no, I am CLUELESS when it comes to sports, but not for long (possibly). (I defer to #7 again)
Is there anything else you would like to share?
I am proud (and crazy to admit) that I became a first time mom at the age of 42. I have an energetic, 18 month old baby boy, Evan, who weighed 8lbs at delivery, a week prior to his due date. Needless to say, he catches the eye of everyone who meets him (due to his size who describes him as a future athlete); he looks about two and a half, three years old.
