Customer Spotlight: Linda Hughes
This month we are launching a new feature in our E-newsletter and on our website called “Client Appreciation Spotlight.” Our goal in doing this is to recognize one or two clients each month and share a little bit about them, and how we came to know them. We think this will be a way of taking the focus off of the actual work our company does, and instead spotlight what we value most in our business… our clients.
This month we will shine our spotlight on Linda Hughes.
Linda is originally from the state of Ohio. She was born in Cincinnati, and has a single brother who lives in Pennsylvania. As a youngster, her favorite things to do were horseback riding, dancing, hiking, anything active. After graduating High School, Linda went on to go to work for a local utility company, and was the first female meter reader. She worked her way up through the ranks and after 27 years took a severance package due to a merger.
Linda moved to Las Vegas in 2000 as a result of getting married to a man who lived here. After moving to Las Vegas, she went to work for the TSA at McCarren International Airport, and absolutely loved her job. Upon being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, she could not longer continue working. Linda’s favorite things about Las Vegas are the sunshine, and the really good friends she made through working with the TSA. Linda’s hobbies, or special interests involve being a leader in a MS self help group where she networks with other MS patients in Nevada, Hawaii, and Alaska through regular phone calls. One of Linda’s observations about people with MS, is that they are like snowflakes… there are no two alike. Linda has two dogs, Suzy Q (pictured), and Carson, a Sheltie. She also has two Persian cats named Bosey, and K.C.. All of her pets were abandoned, and were adopted by Linda.
The way we at Chermac Builders came to meet Linda, was through the Independent Living Program administered by R.A.G.E. Linda suffers from Multiple Sclerosis, and we were fortunate to be selected to complete Bathroom modifications for Linda to help assist her with her daily bathing needs.
The qualities we came to appreciate most about Linda, are her kind and gentle spirit, her enthusiastic attitude, and her overwhelming appreciation for the little bit of work we did to help her lead a more independent life. We hope to remain in contact with Linda for many years to come, and want to express our appreciation for the opportunity to have gotten to know her better, and to have been of service to her.
