Employee Spotlight: Katie Jo Dumford

by Douglass Tinker, on May 14, 2021

Each month, we highlight one of our employees by doing a virtual "20 Questions" with them, some of which are about their work with Reusability, and others of which help us get to know them better. This month our employee spotlight is on Katie Jo Dumford, our Nursery Account Executive for the West region.

  1. What do you do at Reusability?
    1. I recently joined the team as the new Account Executive for the West Region.

  2. What’s the biggest misconception people have about your position?
    1. That you need to be an extrovert to be successful in a sales role. I am a spunky introvert, who likes to color outside the lines! Introverts are committed to their goals, self-sufficient, very observant, good listeners, thought-provoking, and in touch with their feelings, as well as the feelings of others!

  3. If you could snap your fingers and become an expert in something, what would it be?
    1. Indian cuisine! Spicy, rich, flavorful, and diverse!

  4. What is the one thing you can’t resist?
    1. Pinot Noir and good stand-up comedy!

  5. What is your greatest fear?
    1. Heights. No bueno!

  6. Where is your favorite place to be?
    1. In a nursery, elbow deep in soil, propagating and planting.

  7. What is the weirdest job you’ve ever had?
    1. I had a paper route, back in the day – before I could drive. It wasn’t really a ‘weird’ job but I definitely have some funny memories.

  8. Of any trips you’ve taken, what was your favorite?
    1. Las Vegas! Hubby and I got married in a drive-thru, at the Littlest White Chapel!

  9. Favorite movie?
    1. Tied between... Boondock Saints or Swingers!
  10. What do you love doing outside of work?
    1. Hanging out with the hubby and munchkin!

  11. If you could meet one person, living or dead, who would it be?
    1. Sebastian Maniscalco – he is hilarious and would be a kick in the pants to meet!

  12. If you set your music player to random, what are the 3 songs most likely to play?
    1. Avenged Sevenfold, Five Finger Death Punch, Two Feet and anything reggae!

  13. What is the first concert you attended?
    1. My father in law’s band, Yard Dogs. My father in law has since passed away.

  14. What book did you read most recently?
    1. My favorite is The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch. But the most recent would be What the heck is EOS by Gino Wickman!

  15. What household chore do you hate the most?
    1. Bathrooms! No bueno!

  16. What is your favorite type of food?
    1. Taco truck tacos and a cold beer!

  17. Favorite TV show?
    1. Forensic Files.

  18. What is one thing, big or small, that you are really good at?
    1. Empathy.

  19. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
    1. A book writer.

  20. Finally, why did you choose to work at Reusability?
    1. I have always believed in doing something that is bigger than myself and Reusability was that missing puzzle piece!
