Let’s get to know Catarina a little bit more, shall we?
What attracted you to GYANT? What do you love about working at GYANT?
I feel inspired by GYANT values and mission! Knowing that in everything we do, we’re helping someone to have a better and healthier life makes my day 😉
What’s your favorite GYANT value and why?
Focus on Impact is one of my favorite values. It’s easy to come to work everyday with a smile knowing that at the end of the day you’re having a really impact in someone’s life.
Where are you from?
Born and raised in Porto 😀
What’s your favorite snack while working from home?
I’d love to say something healthy…but I’d be lying! Peanut butter M&Ms are my favorite!
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?
I love spending some time in my garden. From flowers to peppers and tomatoes, I love everything about it! Oh and of course , spend some time with my pets (Milka – the dog and Dobby – the cat)!
If you weren’t in your current role, what do you think you’d be doing?
Probably being an advisor for everything related to planning events and organization. (I’m obsessed with Marie Kondo and The Home Edit!)
Have you picked up any new hobbies or interests during the pandemic?
Knitting! I used to love doing it with my grandma and with the pandemic, I felt that it was a good hobby to keep me at home!
What’s something cool that you’ve read, watched, or listened to recently?
Radical Candor by Kim Scott – a really nice book on how to be a good boss! I’d definitely recommend.
