Employee Spotlight: Carrie Searing
The truth is, without Carrie Meredith Searing, clockwork operations at Artitudes would come to a grinding halt. Everything that happens behind the scenes in this small but mighty woman-owned business is juggled, finagled, de-fanged, and tamed to kitten status under this amazing woman’s experienced and watchful eye.
Carrie has been the high-octane fuel in Artitudes’ engine for nearly 16 years and frankly we don’t thank her enough. Designers get accolades for their brilliant work, while Carrie makes sure they get their paychecks and health insurance, business stays compliant in a multitude of ways, taxes get filed, employee handbooks get updated, and everyone has working equipment. Where is Carrie’s applause, people? Give it up for Carrie! (Bring her out from behind the velvet curtain….) Carrie, take a bow.
Besides her powers of syncopation, Carrie is known around Artitudes for her QA eagle-eye. Incorrect dates, commas, overused words, logical fallacies, missing data, and hanging indents are struck where they stand by her mighty red pen.
Besides being a seriously competent and fabulous Operations Manager and editor, Carrie is our HR guru, always willing to be our emotional-support person who is never above donning a Sasquatch suit for laughs. What other gems might you fathom from the depths of mysterious, behind-the-scenes, Carrie? Read on to find out:
