Since Viscosity prides itself on the employees it keeps, we decided to showcase our team in a segment that we call “Meet me Monday”, giving you a chance to learn about our family!
This week, we interviewed Monica Li!
The first employee that Viscosity hired to help build back office and business operations!
1. What year did you begin working at Viscosity?
I started working for Viscosity in 2013, only a year into Viscosity’s life! I originally took it on as a part-time job right after coming out of the fashion industry. I had just launched an online boutique and was freelancing as a designer. I started carving out more and more responsibilities for myself at Viscosity and growing with them, doing everything that was non-technical: billing, predominantly operations, AR/AP, marketing, recruiting, TV mounter, office decorator, and anything else a start-up company needs!
2. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
I love traveling, so that’s a hard question. I still haven’t touched South America, Africa, and Australia.
3. If you could have any one superpower, which would you choose?
My super power would be to eat and drink everything I wanted without packing on unnecessary weight. Does that count?! 😀
4. Do you have any hidden talents or hobbies?
I wouldn’t say ‘talents’..hah. Not a lot of people know that I love to play the acoustic guitar and sing. I also occasionally teach private ballroom/social dance lessons for weddings, or couples that are just wanting to learn together. Typically I’m teaching basic Foxtrot, Waltz and Two-Step to people with no dance experience at all. I used to be a teaching assistant at my university’s dance classes.
6. Last but not least, what is your favorite thing about working at Viscosity?
I love the culture and people of Viscosity. You can’t beat having a group of good natured folks who are both hardworking AND passionate about their jobs. With my role at Viscosity, I interface with just about every department here, and it’s very enjoyable.
