Get to know Recruitment Consultant, Jessica Berlin.
How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
Impulsive, caring, generous
It’s a typical Saturday afternoon at 2pm, what are you doing?
I’m outside, either napping by my pool, hiking, or playing in the garden – LOVE the outdoors and nature. If it’s winter, I’m daydreaming about my pool or my winter weather favorite of “Netflix, nachos and naps”.
Where is the best place you have traveled and why?
The Grand Canyon – just amazing to see the size and beauty in person. Pictures will never do it justice – must see!
What characteristic to you most admire in others?
Honesty and a good heart. People who are real and genuine.
If you could do another job for just one day, what would it be?
I would work at a zoo or wildlife preserve – anything with animals.
What is the last gift you gave someone?
For my sister’s birthday, I took her clothes shopping and let her pick out anything she wanted. Also, for my parent’s anniversary (that same week) they asked for physical gifts instead of monetary – so I spent the day doing lawn work and gardening for my dad, and cleaning the house for my mom, so they didn’t have to.
If you could give advice to your 13-year-old self, what would you say?
Focus less on being popular and more on family and true friends, they won’t all be around forever, but the one’s you are closest to will be by your side for life. Lose the attitude, it won’t get you anywhere and doesn’t make you cool. Quit asking mom and dad for a cell phone or computer – one day they will control your life. Drop that cigarette – it’ll make you smell and unable to breathe.
Tell us something that might surprise us about you.
I have 24 tattoos and I am a proper tattoo addict with 4 more ideas for my next ones.
What are three things still left on your bucket list?
Go to Australia, own an Audi RS &, and open my own dog rescue for homeless dogs or shelter dogs who can’t find forever homes.
What are you most proud of?
My family and friends in my life – they are amazing and inspire me daily. Being the best doggie mom possible. My ability to overcome, when life knocks me down or things get tough, I push through it and come out on top.
