Each month, we like to recognize and highlight an internal employee on our blog. PEC wants you to know the names and faces behind our walls, since these are the people that work daily for the betterment of our services for our clients. In today’s PEC Employee Spotlight you’ll meet Eileen.
Name: Eileen Weins
Position: Winter Fest + Event Coordinator
What is your favorite hobby outside of work?
I enjoy the creative craft projects that my volunteer work brings me, or even enjoy house improvement projects! This week, we picked out tile and a vanity for the half bath – I just love the destruction and re-construction phases of a project. My husband and I are in a new chapter of our lives, so we are rediscovering our interests in being empty nesters. We’re embracing new hobbies!
What point in the event planning process is your favorite?
I enjoy creating the concepts for the event, and then making all the connections to make the idea come to life. I also like working through the details of the creative process. Secondly, I love the day-of installation at the event; I get a thrill out of watching the design elements and project unfold as it all comes together.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? (Given that your family would be there too)
On a lake and in an up-north cabin. There would be lunches on a pontoon boat, sunsets, sunrises over the lake, quite fishing days, canoeing to paddle around the lake during quiet mornings, and the smell of firewood at the campsite. (But in the winter – somewhere warm!)
What cooking or baking dish are you known for?
Creatively making dishes with no sugar, as my family is fructose intolerant. I have creatively made desserts and main dishes that contain no natural or refined sugar! (editor’s note: that is VERY impressive!)
If you weren’t working in events, what would you be doing?
Coaching younger kids. You would find me wearing a t-shirt and shorts in a gym!
Name one interesting fact about yourself!
I am a twin! Also, my left side of the brain works overtime and I believe I have an extra sensitivity to people’s likes, interests, and differences.
