In this SecureLink Employee Spotlight, you’ll learn more about Strategic Account Manager, Susana Gomez-Hooker.

Susana is a ballet buff – in her spare time, when she’s not helping SecureLink customers, she loves to visit the ballet and enjoys dancing herself. On the weekends and evenings, she spends time with her daughter and husband, tending to her cacti and succulent collection, and practicing yoga. She also enjoys Latin-American culture, vintage hunting, and uncovering unique treasures, such as Covet jewelry.

Getting to know Susana

Hometown: Elizabeth NJ (but Austin is home!)

What is the most satisfying part of your job?
Helping our customers solve problems. The first step is listening.

What would someone be surprised to know about you?
I am afraid of clowns but, shouldn’t most people be?

What is your most treasured possession?
That is hard for me to answer. I actually asked my husband and sister what they would say about me. Their responses were insightful and accurate:

  • A meticulously handmade shawl with various lamb wool fibers (because I was borderline hysterical after thinking I left it at a restaurant once) and my disco ball (if you have ever been to one of my impromptu dance parties you would understand).
  • My Pedro Friedeberg-style hand carved chair (I drove far to acquire it from some very eclectic hoarders and encountered a suicidal bird, a stubborn coyote and, a tiny tornado along the way). Basically, I treasure everything that is unique, beautiful and sentimental.

If you could be a professional athlete, what sport would you play?
A ballerina. Beyond sport, ballet is also an art.

What is your motto for achieving success?
Respect is how to treat everyone, not just those you want to impress.
