In honor of our featured Can Do! Ingredient (Passion), we asked employees to tell us what they are most passionate about. Here are some of the responses we received:

Alice Udovich, INTERPRETALK® Interpreting by Telephone Coordinator

Alice is passionate about painting! “Although I am artistic, I really had not painted since high school,” said Alice. “I recently purchased some watercolors and sketch books and started painting again. I am really enjoying the process and find it to be so relaxing. I am always thinking of new things to draw or paint. It makes me look at the world in a new light.”

Maureen Garelick, Vendor Relations Manager – Translation and Localization Division

Cycling is Maureen’s true passion! “I started cycling kind of by accident when I was forced to stop playing soccer after disk surgery,” said Maureen. “My brother encouraged me to participate with him in the Ride to Cure Diabetes, a fundraiser for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. My passion for the cause grew into a passion for riding and the two built on each other. I’ve ridden the Ride to Cure three times, and am now my club’s team captain for the Tour de Cure, a fundraiser for the American Diabetes Association.”

John Graves, Video Remote Interpreting Manager

For John, it’s all about his motorcycle! “My passion is hittin’ the highways on my 2008 Suzuki Hayabusa,” said John. “Every opportunity I get I like to take her out to ride with my team and cruise the highways up to New Hope, PA and down through the twisty roads of Rt. 29 in New Jersey. I’m able to clear my head when I’m cruising in the open air. There is nothing better than riding my beast!”

Nicole Krebs, Project Coordinator – Face-to-Face Interpreting Division

Nicole is passionate about animals! “I was an only child growing up so our family pet became my brother,” said Nicole. “Ever since then I have felt a connection to animals, specifically dogs. I sometimes understand them better than people! I recently switched to a part-time schedule at LSA to pursue a career working with animals. I am currently working as an Adoption Counselor at Operation Ava, a no kill rescue in the Philadelphia area.”
