What a great way to start out the year! We’re celebrating two fabulous virtual receptionists’ anniversaries this month: Katy M. and Tasia P. Never missing a beat whether she’s answering phones or playing in her bands, mellifluous Tasia’s been with Ruby® Receptionists for three years. We’re also delighted that kitsch-loving Katy found her way to Ruby one year ago this week!

Here’s more about these hip gals:

What’s your favorite part about working at Ruby?

Katy M.: Definitely the incredible amount of kindness and positivity that I get to experience on a daily basis. It’s hard to not be happy working at Ruby!

Tasia P.: We are treated with respect and dignity by management. Everyone is genuinely nice and supportive, it’s like a family…a happy, non-dysfunctional one!

What’s your favorite part about living in Portland?

Katy M.: There is an abundance of second-hand stores and antique shops all over town, and shopping for vintage treasures is one of my favorite things in the world.

Tasia P.: I like that it’s not too hot in the summer and not too cold in the winter — a more milder climate than where I grew up in Denver, Colorado. Also, there is a really great music scene here, Stumptown Coffee, and LOTS OF BIKES!

What’s your favorite thing to do when you’re not answering phones at Ruby?

Katy M.: Besides exploring second hand stores, I love spending time in my garden and crafting

Tasia P.: Playing music in my two bands (Bryan Minus & The Disconnect and Better Beings), reading, baking, and playing with my cat Grizzy.
