Our final Occupational Therapy Meet us Monday post is below. Today, meet Erin Tauscher an Occupational Therapist at Gillette!
Q. What are some of your hobbies outside work?
A. I like going to spin classes, going to concerts, trying new foods/restaurants, going kayaking/canoeing, and traveling. Really anything that is adventurous.
Q. Do you have any kids or pets?
A. Not yet. I have a goddaughter, Cecelia, which is the closest I have to my own child (yet so far away). My parents have a yellow lab named Molly. I would like to get a puppy, but it depends on where I’m living next year!
Q. If you could choose a superpower, what would it be?
A. Hands down it would be Instant Teleportation. If I could just think about where I wanted to be and could get there that would be great.
Q. What is your favorite food?
A. My favorite food is Tikka Masala from Gorkha Palace in Northeast Mpls or Rama Thai at Navaya’s Thai Brasserie in Linden Hills.
Q. If you could travel anywhere where would you go?
A. Right now it would either be Brazil or Argentina. Those will probably be my next big trips. Then it will be subject to change after that.
Q. Favorite kind of music or band?
A. I love all kinds of music. Currently, I’ve been on a more electronic/upbeat kick. Right now, my favorite bands are Metric, Little Dragon, Cold War Kids, Bon Iver, and Polica. Has anyone heard of those bands? Let me know, we should talk
Q. Favorite subject in school?
A. Math and science until I got to college. Then anatomy with cadaver lab!
Q. Who did you admire when you were a kid?
A. My brother. He’s 2 years older and I followed him around like a shadow.
Q. Do you have a favorite story or memory from Gillette?
A. I’m fairly new to the Gillette Team, but I’d say my favorite memory is when an 11 year old patient met me and said “oh I though you’d be prettier”. Guess I was having more than just a bad hair day.
Q. What do you enjoy most about your job at Gillette?
A. The diversity, challenge, and support. It’s really been great!
