Employee of the Month: Kitty Cannon

What originally made you want to work with EA? Kitty Cannon, Administrative Assistant and family

Originally, I really needed a job that was close to home. I had been commuting an hour one way to the job I had at the time. My children were 3 & 5 when I started. I needed to be closer to them. I have stayed almost 15 years with EA because of the flexibility it gave me with my family & now EA has become a part of my family.

Describe what your best day on the job looks like:

The best part of my day is when that little boy or girl comes into my office to visit their parents & they walk right over to me for a hug. Nothing better than that!

What do you wish people knew about working in your field?

I get to do many different tasks in my position that I truly enjoy. I touch a lot of paperwork in my job, but my life has been touched by so many children, resource parents & biological parents. My job feeds my soul in every way.

How do you practice self care?

I love going to the gym & hiking with my dog. The icing on the cake though is my time spent in the sauna after a workout.

What's a hidden talent you have, or something about yourself that would surprise most people?

I have twins, a boy & a girl that just graduated High School & a son that just turned 21—he will be a Senior in college :)
