We have a Crew of Experts ready to go to work for you. Our “Meet the Employee” posts give you the chance to learn a little more about them. Today, we feature Web & Automation Manager Renee Harlan.
What is the best thing about working at Adventure?
My coworkers are amazing. I love to learn, and I am constantly learning from everyone I work with. I am not much of a morning person, but arriving at Adventure in the morning is awesome. Walking into a welcoming, friendly environment is a great way to start the day. The work I do is interesting, and there are a lot of different things to work on. Often, we work together on things, and the teamwork here is incredible. I couldn’t imagine a better job; it is like a dream come true!
What do you like to do in your free time?
I have a 5-year-old daughter, a Great Dane, 2 cats, and a bearded dragon so I am kept pretty busy with my mini zoo at home. I am an avid gamer, so I spend a lot of my time playing with my daughter and husband. I love music. My husband plays guitar and I sing, so we often make music together. I try to get out and go to concerts and music festivals when possible as well.
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up and why?
A veterinarian. As I got older, I realized that it would require 8 years of school, so then I shifted my focus to graphic design. Eventually, I discovered I was really good at programming and computer-oriented tasks, so here I am and I am so happy to be here.
