It's Wildcat Wednesday! On Wednesdays, we spotlight a member of the LR Wildcat family.
This week we are introducing you to Monica Tate!
Administrative Execuitive Assistant
Tell us about your family:
I have been married to my husband Brandon for almost 26 years. We have one daughter, Elissa. She will be 20 in a couple of months and she is currently in her second year of college at MSU. We have one dog named Jake and he is very spoiled. My husband and I grew up in West Plains, MO and moved to the Springfield area in 2004.
How long have you worked for LR?
What is your favorite thing about working for LR?
The people. Everyone is so nice and welcoming. They make you feel like family.
What is something about you that might surprise people?
Since I was a little kid I have been a huge Muppet and Dolly Parton fan.
What is your favorite quote?
"The measure of a life, after all, is not its duration, but its donation." Corrie Ten Boom
What's the weirdest job you've ever had?
I can't say that I have ever had a weird job. I've worked with some weird people. Does that count?
What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?
Work in a National Park or Museum.
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
Fly a plane. I'm not good driving on the ground so I think I would be better in the air without as many obstacles.
What do you like to do when you're not at school?
Read, watch movies and be outdoors.
Thanks for being a Wildcat Monica! We are so glad to have you at LR!
