Today we are profiling Antoinette Nicchia, who, along with Liz Koplitz, is a new member of the LarsonEd team.
Where are you from, Antoinette?
I was born in Louisiana, then I lived in New York, and now I’m here in Fort Myers. I’ve been here the majority of my life. I came down here after my sister moved down here. I love southwest Florida.
What’s the most interesting thing about you?
I actually care about people; lots of people don’t care. I care about helping people. I volunteer a lot in community.
What is your new job with LarsonEd?
I’m the customer experience manager, which means I’ll be interacting with students, making sure that they’re having a good experience with LarsonEd. In some ways I’ll be the new face of the company.
What’s your favorite hobby?
My fiancé is a firefighter and a paramedic. We also have 3 dogs that we love to spend time with. I love the beach, yoga, and meditation. I love to travel, I like volunteering, dancing, and I also worked as a real estate agent.
What’s your personal motto?
Treat others as you would like to be treated. If you give someone respect they will respect you back.
Given the choice of anyone in the world, who would you want as a dinner guest?
My grandparents. I would love to learn about my family and learn about where I came from.
Anything else you want the students to know about you?
I want our students to know that I’m here to help with any question they might have. There is no stupid question. It’s a confusing process, and they can ask me anything and I will help you figure it out.
