In our latest Capital Planning Staff Spotlight, we had a great chat with Sheri Martellucci, our receptionist and administrative associate.  While many of us know Sheri as the friendly face you first see when visiting our office, we certainly learned a few new things!

What is a goal you are proud of accomplishing?

For most of my life, I wasn’t a goal-setter or goal-getter.  I simply wasn’t convinced of the life changing power that occurs when setting & achieving goals.  Fast forward to a couple years ago when I was gifted a Fitbit & earbuds.  I decided to put in 10k steps each day and set a goal to reach 365 days.  After hitting the 365 goal, I decided to extend it to 1000 days.  Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall, I love starting each day with a walk & praise music.   I’m excited to share that barring any unforeseen or unfortunate life events, I’ll reach 1000 days before Thanksgiving this year.  Hoping my experience might inspire you in some small way!

What is your favorite holiday and why?

My favorite holiday is without a doubt Thanksgiving.  It is a day to be mindfully grateful for family & friends.  There is something so comforting about gathering with loved ones over a huge & delicious meal mid-day, followed by desserts too numerous to mention, followed by football, napping, the traditional cold turkey sandwich for dinner, and finding out what is on everyone’s Christmas wish list! 

What is something unique about your family?

Let’s talk birth order.  My father turns 80 soon and is the baby of a large family of ten kids. My mother is the oldest from a family of four kids.  As it turned out, I was the oldest grandchild/cousin on my mom’s side of the family and the 2nd youngest grandchild/cousin on my dad’s side of the family.  Even as an adult, I’m a baby on one side of the family and the oldest on the other.  Both roles assigned by my birthdate are different and yet equally fulfilling.  Can you guess, who I am in the photo…. I’ll give you a hint, I’m the little one!
