Lachelle Rodrigues, GBA
Q: What’s your number one tip on how to maintain a healthy work life balance?
L: I disabled all push notifications on my phone including email, social media and even games. I would get so anxious getting an email notification at 8pm at night or on a Sunday. Now, I view my emails and other apps when I am ready and can focus on the information at hand.
Q: What’s the most inspiring part of your job?
L: I love speaking and interacting with our clients’ employee base. It is fulfilling to help answer questions and provide useful suggestions that will empower the everyday person and their family to maintain a healthy, well rounded lifestyle.
Q: What is the most important thing you’ve learned on the job?
L: Ask a lot of questions. Finding out the specific needs and wants of a business or individual helps us create a fitting benefit package and plan of action. This is also true of life. Being curious and asking questions helps me learn, connect and grow.
Q: What did you think you were going to grow up to be when you were a kid?
L: When I was about 5 I announced that I wanted to be the President of the United States. My how my opinion about that has changed!
Q: Where can one find you on Sunday mornings?
L: Sundays are for beach days. My family and I venture around the island to different spots to soak up the sun and spend time in the ocean. Catching fish or finding shells is a bonus.
Q: What’s a motto you live by?
L: “Tend to your thoughts with care. They have the power to grow weeds or flowers” – Cleo Wade
