Interviews are edited for clarity.

What’s your favorite part of your job? 

Solving problems. I really enjoy the day-to-day things that come up, especially with Fluid Truck being a startup. No day is the same. Solving problems is my biggest joy; I love being able to help people’s businesses and lives run more smoothly. 

When you aren’t working, what are you usually doing? 

I'm usually kicking it with friends! I love going to concerts, concerts are a big thing for me. Sometimes I'm just at the house cooling and watching tv or something like that. I also love being outside and spending time with my family.

Do you have any secret talents?
I play four instruments --- violin, cello, which is my favorite, and piano is the only one I still play today. And I play drums too. 

What’s the best career advice you’ve ever received?

One of my early mentors at my first real job told me, "control the controlables," That's stuck with me professionally, but in life as well. It helps keep anxiety down. if you can't control something, let it be. Control the controlables.

If you could have a Fluid Truck full of one thing, what would it be?

I’d  love to have a fully outfitted Sprinter and just explore the nation doing cross country road trips. With a WifI hotspot, I’d be good to go!. Seeing all the sights, eating all the food, meeting all the people - all of it. 

Do you have a favorite quote?

The Alchemist is one of my favorite books; I read it a couple times a year. I have several quotes I love:

"People are capable at any time in their lives of doing what they dream of,"

And the second one is, "when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it."

 It makes me think about the fact that once a person has made up their mind with what they want to do, that's when the world, resources, people, and experiences all work together to make sure you get exactly what you asked for. But it starts with making up your mind!

What motivates you at work? 

Probably my team. I don't like to let people down. Knowing that I have a team that I support, and knowing I can lean into those team members, keeps me motivated. I know I can pick up the phone and call  anybody and say, “hey,” even if it’s not about work stuff.

If you had a TED Talk, what would it be about?
About three weeks ago I was kind of unsettled with the path of my life, and I had to look and see what I'd been doing or not doing considering the results that I currently have. 

So I implemented this system that I've coined "watering myself.” 

Daily, I make sure I water myself spiritually, emotionally, physically, and mentally. And I also track it. So at the end of the day or week if I notice my mood is off, I can look and see like "Hey Leah, you didn't meditate this week, or you didn't work out this week." 

So, I think my TED Talk would probably be about watering yourself and finding your ways to nourish yourself, so you’re watering yourself first before you try to impact anybody else. 

Do you have a guilty pleasure?
Don't judge me on this --- i'm a Gemini, so I have a thirst for knowledge. If somebody tells me anything, I immediately go down rabbit holes. 

Lately those rabbit holes have been on tiktok. Sometimes I'll be up till 4 in the morning! I've been on an extraterrestrial rabbit hole lately. It competes with my logic sometimes but sometimes it's like, we might not be far off….

What would you tell someone who wants to come work at Fluid Truck?

I'd tell them, come prepared for new experiences, be ready to innovate, and be ready to build. That's one of the beautiful things about startups. you're actively building out visions. 

When I was working at a big corporation, the system was already in place. There was no agility or room to move. Stuff took a year to be implemented. But here, you can bring ideas to the table and see stuff implemented as fast as you can change it. 

If you're looking for a space where you can be innovative and build teams and build systems and grow personally and professionally, Let's go!

Want to work somewhere where your ideas quickly turn into action, where you’re more than a cog in the machine, and where every day is a new adventure? Click here to check out open positions at Fluid Truck.
