|10 Questions with Denise Zotti, Research Associate
|February 6, 2012
What brought you to KS&R?
Prior to KS&R, I worked for a few different market research suppliers. I also spent a couple of years on the client side but found I really liked the more "hands on" aspect of the supplier side. Four years ago I was looking to make a change and met with a friend and former colleague who works for KS&R. He thought it would be a good fit for me – and it really has been great!
If you could get away for a weekend, where would you go and what would you do?
I would go home to New Jersey and visit with family and friends. Since I've moved to Syracuse, I don't get to see them as much. It's always great to go home and spend time with everyone. We're a loud, fun, and kind of crazy bunch!
If you had a time machine and could jump back or spring ahead, which would you do? Why?
Spring ahead. I'd want to know what the Power Ball numbers are. This would give me the means to travel the world and visit all the places I've always wanted to see – in style!
What do you do to unwind from a hectic day?
PJ's and the TV remote. Thank goodness for TiVo!
What is your most marked characteristic?
Just one? I have so many – it's hard to choose! – (I guess modesty isn't one of them.) In all seriousness, I would say "dedicated" – to my work, my family, my friends.
What is your pet peeve?
When people are inconsiderate. "Please" and "thank you" are small words, but they can have a huge impact.
What quality do you most admire in a person?
Confidence, honesty, loyalty.
What word would you use to describe yourself that would surprise those who know you?
I'm a bit of a slob. My clothes have never met a hanger they liked.
What would we find in your refrigerator right now?
I don't cook so there's pretty much nothing in my refrigerator except bottled water and Gummi Bears.
What is your motto?
I am not sure if it is a motto or a philosophy, but "Life is Short". It sounds cliché, but we're here for such a brief time and never know what each day will bring. It reminds me to put things into perspective.
