As our IPG team continues to grow, we are excited to announce the addition of Sherry Jones as Account Manager! (Read more about Sherry’s background in the “About” section of our website).
In the meantime, we asked her a few questions so you can get to know her on a more personal level. Don’t be surprised if she calls on you in the near future!
What’s your hidden talent?
I’m a pretty good dancer. Shy, but when I feel like it, I can “cut a rug.”
What did you do growing up that got you into trouble?
I loved to read and would hide in the closet to finish a book instead of doing my chores.
What’s your nickname?
I don’t have one, but growing up my family called me by my first and middle names…Sherry Robin. It usually meant I was in trouble.
What story does your family always tell about you?
They love to tell the story of my 1st grade Christmas pageant. The stage was full of children but I sang louder than everyone. I was the only voice anyone could hear and my mother couldn’t control her laughter.
What’s a fun fact about you?
I love to cook and enjoy learning about the food of my Southern heritage, especially my grandmothers’ cake recipes.
What was your very first job?
I worked at a frozen yogurt shop when I was 15. I loved making waffle cones!
I probably shouldn’t have (fill in the blank) …
Started binge-watching. Period.
Have you ever had a bad ass moment?
My husband was out-of-town and our dryer broke. With the help of a YouTube video, I took it apart, repaired it and put it back together…and it worked!
What is the one skill needed to be successful?
I think being a great listener is essential to better business and better relationships.
What’s your favorite book?
My Life in France by Julia Child and Alex Prud’homme.
What’s your favorite film?
A great soundtrack goes a long way…and Forrest Gump and Almost Famous are tops.
If you could choose anyone, who would you choose as a mentor?
Maya Angelou spoke at my university during my freshman year and was a great inspiration.
What super hero do you most associate with?
Wonder Woman. Am I showing my age?
