Casey Henshaw

NS4L Office Assistant (Believe Us, She's Smiling)

Intro by Collin…
 
I have always done one important thing when it comes to entrepreneurship and that is to TRUST MY GUT!  In 2014, Andrea really helped ease the hiring process for me by scheduling interviews with qualified candidates.  This was the case with Casey Henshaw.  Andrea had scheduled for her and I to interview Casey and as soon as Casey walked through the door with her super outgoing personality and bright orangish-red hair, I knew that she would be a perfect fit for our team.   Casey nailed the interview and as soon as Casey walked out the door, I handed the interview question sheet to Andrea, smiled, and said “Yep!”  Casey was a shoe-in!

In your words, what do you do here?

What a question! I have worn many hats at NS4L, from Front of House Rockstar (Sales associate) to CCE (Chief Cultural Extraordinaire), but my current position would best be described as an Office Assistant. I take care a lot of “behind the scenes” administrative work, but I also help out wherever I’m needed when it gets busy!

How did you get suckered into working here?

Like most students at UF (GO GATORS!), I see the NS4L logo EVERYWHERE on campus.  So when Collin came in and spoke in the Entrepreneurship course I was taking at the time, I definitely recognized the name and logo.  After hearing him speak about the company, it’s culture, and the Ultimate Customer Experience, I knew that NS4L would be an awesome place to work.

Fast-forward a few months to when I was driving a friend home from Riverview.  He just HAPPENED to know Collin and also just HAPPENED to know that NS4L was looking to hire some people for the FOH [Front of House].  Naturally, that evening I emailed Andrea to apply.  Even from the application, I knew I wanted to work here.  You could call me officially suckered in from that point.

How would you describe NS4L’s culture?

Hmmmmm… Is that even possible?  I’d have to say fun and definitely unique.  I love the idea of being able to get things done in an efficient and professional way, but still being able to enjoy your time with your work fam!

What’s your favorite quote?

“So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.”

If you had to eat the same food every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Roasted Brussel Sprouts.
Seriously.

What is your favorite smell that other people would find weird?

I love the smell of rain.

What would be the ideal date with your significant other?

Dinner at home, Frankie Valli on the record player, and a movie. If it’s a little bit chilly outside, maybe hot tea by the fire to end the night. If we go out, a concert or a play, then dinner and a drink or two. Then, hot tea by the fire to end the night.

Would you rather spend your leisure money on experiences or tangible things?

Experiences. I like having nice things at home and enjoy spending time there, but I would trade it all to travel the world with my favorite people.

What is your worst habit?

I have a lot, but the worst is probably saying “I’m sorry” unnecessarily.

What’s your favorite movie?

This is an impossible question.  There are so many options!  Thor, LOTR, Harry Potter, Across the Universe, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Mortified Nation… The list goes on and on and becomes increasingly random.
