F&P Spotlight on Executive Assistant Amanda Zervas

What is your practice area, and how did you choose it?
I’m an Executive Assistant for the liability attorneys, though I didn’t choose liability, it was chosen for me.  When I originally applied at F&P 10 years ago, I was applying for the receptionist position but was asked if I’d be interested in trying something new and be an administrative assistant instead.  I’m glad I agreed to take on the new challenge and try a job I’ve never done before because I found out I really enjoy what I do now.

What is your favorite aspect of working at F&P?
In my experience at F&P, I’ve been a part of some amazing teams that support each other and work towards bettering each other.  I’ve learned so much from everyone I’ve had the pleasure to work for and with.  They’ve pushed me into new challenges, and I’ve gained knowledge that’s made me someone others can rely on when they need help.

What’s your proudest accomplishment?
My two boys would have to be my proudest, ongoing, accomplishment.  Seeing the little men I’m raising and doing my best to instill kindness, respect, acceptance, and values in them in hopes to enrich their futures.  I love seeing my boys use those skills I’m trying to teach them in their daily lives.

What do you like to do outside the office?
I like to spend as much time as possible with my kids since they’re only young once.  We enjoy being outside visiting different parks, playgrounds, and farms. We also enjoy doing crafting projects together for each upcoming holiday to decorate their playroom.

What is your favorite food?
I love sushi. That’s one type of food I can never turn down.

What is your all-time favorite city or town, and why?
My favorite city would have to be Orlando in Florida since that is where Disney World is located and our favorite place to vacation as a family.

What was the best news you ever received?
The best news I’ve received would have to be, after years of trying, when we found out that I was pregnant with our second child. My husband and I knew we wanted two children so finally finding out that we were going to complete our family was the best news.

What is the weirdest thing you have ever eaten?
I tried frog legs once.  It wasn’t terrible, but not something I need to have again.

Do you have any bizarre talents?
My arms are double-jointed.  I’m able to hold my hands behind my back and bring them over my head without letting go.
