10 Questions with Denisha Dixon

What do you do for your job?
I am the receptionist, which means I answer the telephone, deal patiently with clients (and sometimes employees), and greet visitors with a pageant-like smile while watching as you pretend you didn’t grab 3 pieces of candy for the 5th time in a row.

How did you get into engineering?
I became a receptionist because I love people, and as a receptionist I get to interact with new people every day.

What is the best part of your job?
Working with people who I now consider my friends.

What job would you be terrible at?
A circus clown, because I’m not that funny looking.

What’s the best way to start the day?
A good cup of coffee and an ocean front view with a sunrise.

What’s the best single day on the calendar?
Probably June 3rd , its World Bicycle Day :-)

Would you rather go hang gliding or whitewater rafting?
I nearly died whitewater rafting, so I would say hang gliding. I would rather enjoy a good view if I’m going to risk my life and possibly die.

How different was your life one year ago?
A year ago I turned 30, and now every time I walk my knees make noises.

If you suddenly became a master at woodworking, what would you make?
An adult tree house.

In different countries helping people get food and resources they need and teaching young kids to read and write.
