Employee Spotlight: Carrie Zeigler

Carrie Zeigler, Lead Education Planner at AquaPhoenix, discusses her role, the importance of GAS, and more.

Q: What is your role at APS? 

I am the Education Planner here which means that I plan any education order that comes across my desk. I work with the Purchasing team to get the items here. I work with our Sales team to hit the Customer’s deadlines. And then I also work with Production to get it done and out the door when our Customer needs it.

Q: What has been your most memorable moment at APS?

Do I have any memorable moments from working at AquaPhoenix? In the 10 years that I have worked here, I have very many memorable moments and there’s too many to name.

Q: What advice would you give to a new hire?

My advice would be to just have GAS. GAS is a big thing here (can I say it?) it means Give a Sh**. So pretty much to work here you have to give a sh** and care about the job that you do.

Q: If you could learn something new, what would it be?

If I could learn one thing that I didn’t know how to do, it would be to learn how to fly a plane. I always thought that it would be really neat to be able to fly a plane so you could fly yourself wherever you wanted to go. First you learn to fly, then you buy the plane, then you can just go wherever you want, whenever you want.

Q: What is something most people don’t know about you?

Something that most people probably don’t know about me is that I love music and I love to play the piano. I’ve been playing since probably five years old.

Q: Which AquaPhoenix Core Value Stands out to you?

My favorite core value is always Continuously WOW the Customer. I think that is a great thing to always remember.

Q: What is your favorite food?

My favorite food is anything with chocolate in it.

Q: Do you have pets?

Yes, I have an adorable little fur ball called Morkie. It’s part Maltese and part Yorkie so it’s a Morkie. I was very inventive with my name. He’s adorable. Oh, Mork and Mindy! Yes, and it’s funny because I didn’t think of that until after I named him and I thought, well now we need to get a girl dog. Then I could have Mork and Mindy. But my husband said, no, one was enough.

Q: Any favorite line from a movie?

The main one that comes to my mind is, “Hasta la vista, baby”. You can use that as the end.
