Women of Achievement – Clarissa Crisp

Clarissa Crisp

What/who has been inspirational for you personally or professionally?

I find inspiration in a variety of people and things. My father set a high example of work ethic and integrity growing up. He taught me that honesty, loyalty, commitment, and hard work are things to strive for daily in school, work, and life. At work, I am inspired each day by so many people. Jenn Mudge inspires me with her knowledge and work ethic to do and be better every day. Sheila Powers inspires me with her positivity to work as a team and help one another. Barb Serra inspires me with her leadership, support, and trust to be creative, unafraid, and confident in everything I do.


What has been your best accomplishment or the proudest moment throughout your career?

I am proud of how this company handled the shift from working in the office to working from home. I am excited to have been part of that process. To take the tools we used while working in the office and use them in such a way for people to train and work successfully from home has been such a shared team accomplishment.


What is a mistake that you made professionally and how did you overcome it and/or learn from it?

Being unprepared and making excuses. Whether it’s traffic, or a slow connection, I am accountable for my actions. I give myself extra time to arrive. Instead of just showing up, I plan and do a little research to ensure that I am prepared.


As a busy professional, how do you take care of yourself and maintain good mental health?

On weekends, we have some family time. Whether it’s a movie, game, or other activity, we do something as a family to bring us closer together.


What advice would you have given yourself ten years ago?

You can’t control what other people do and say, but you can control your reactions, and choosing how you react can have a lasting impact.
