Five Questions With Sharon Schoen
At ZG, you can’t walk in the front door without getting a jolly “HAPPY [Insert the day of the week]!!!”
Sharon Schoen, ZG’s Office Manager, is just brimming with cheerfulness and positivity. In fact, in my many years of working with Sharon, I don’t think I’ve ever seen her in a bad mood. She’s the first person to ask you how your day is going – and actually remembers what you said and follows up on it later. She’s the mom every office needs – the one who makes everyone feel cared for while also making sure sh*t gets done.
Let’s get to know the incredible Sharon!
Who is your hero and why?
Other than various family members who are my heroes, I would say Mother Teresa. Of her many quotes, two that I really like are:
- Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.
- Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.
What’s one thing people would be surprised to learn about you?
At one time, I considered nursing as a profession. Unfortunately, I get dizzy and nearly faint at the sight of blood.
What’s your ultimate comfort meal?
A cup of chicken soup along with some chicken broccoli divan is a nice comfort meal. A brownie for dessert completes it.
Here’s my recipe for chicken broccoli divan:
4 cups fresh or thawed frozen broccoli florets
2 cups cubed cooked chicken
1 can of condensed cream of chicken soup
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons plain dry bread crumbs
1 tablespoon butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Add the broccoli and chicken to a 9-inch pie plate. In a small bowl, stir in the soup and milk. Pour this mixture over the broccoli and chicken then sprinkle with the cheese. Stir the bread crumbs and butter in a small bowl then sprinkle over the cheese. Bake for 20 minutes or until the chicken mixture is hot.
What do you do during your commute into work?
I listen to the radio during my commute to work. I listen to a wide variety of music – everything from Ed Sheeran and Post Malone to classic rock tunes.
What makes you excited to go to work each day?
I get excited to go to work each day because I am doing a job that I truly enjoy and get to interact with all of the wonderful employees at Zizzo Group, along with our awesome clients.
