A giant smile breaks across my face when Jeannette visits my desk - she is either asking to help me with something or offering some crazy baked goodie. I think it's her smile that goes airborne and infects other people causing them to break out in senseless smiles. Or maybe she puts something in those baked concoctions - they aren't normal ingredients, you know. I'm not sure they ever make it to the other floors. Jeannette's first task was to help me take notes for a client meeting - the meeting was 6 hours long, discussing 4 different buildings in 4 different phases and yes, just one client. She typed exhaustive notes (9 pages long!) on her laptop as we met. After the meeting, I was beat and she was beaming - so excited to absorb everything we just talked about. I was smitten with my new intern treasure who was not only helping me with work, but helping me be excited about the work. 2014 has been a busy year, and Jeanette's enthusiasm and encouragement have been invaluable, as well as her talents and hard work. She may be Sneezy, but she’s Sneezy Rockstar in my book. - Laura Kaupp Hometown: Essex, Connecticut Years at LF: 6 months Favorite LF Project: Love that Pearl.
