Julie Gibson | Operations Assistant
Here at SoundView Advisors, each and every one of our employees plays a vital role.
Julie Gibson, our new Operations Assistant is no different. Since Julie recently joined the team, this is what we have learned about her so far:
NAME: Julie Gibson
ROLE: Operations Assistant
What skill would you like to learn? How to hem my own pants. My grandmother was a professional seamstress and made me beautiful dresses when I was young. Being petite, I often have to get my pants hemmed, and it would be great to learn to do this for myself.
What's the craziest thing you've ever done?
Bungee jumping! It doesn’t seem so crazy now that I’ve done it.
What’s your favorite movie?
My favorite movie is The Holiday. I don’t like re-watching movies, but for some reason I can re-watch this every year.
What’s your favorite quote? “Everything is an adventure”
- My Mother-In-Law
I learned to not take every “wrong turn” as a negative or battle. It’s all an adventure no matter good or bad. We learn from our adventures.
What is the most important thing in your life?
As long as I have my loving husband and a good support network, that’s all I need. Oh, and our Cairn Terrier, Izzie.
What is your dream vacation?
I love to travel! I’ve been to some amazing places. Every time I return home, I can’t wait to make plans for our next great adventure. My husband and I are starting to realize what kind of travelers we are and it’s a wonderful feeling. It looks like our next big trip might be skiing in the Alps.
What is on your “bucket list”?
Heliskiing, sky diving, hang gliding, more travel…can you see a pattern here?
If you could be any animal, what would you be?
I would be a Cairn Terrier. They are feisty, ornery but loving and protective.
What would be your “last meal?” Loads of Cicchetti, a savory snack typically served in a bars or informal restaurants throughout Venice, Italy.
What is your favorite part about working at SoundView (so far)?
My favorite part about SoundView Advisors is how warm and welcoming everyone has been. I truly feel this company listens to everyone’s needs and realizes the impact on each of the roles within SVA.
