Kristy Plucker is Chatterkick’s “Jill of All Trades.” She is technically our administration and recruiting manager, but she can jump in and help out almost everyone in the office. She’s a pro at keeping Beth up-to-date on her schedule and an expert at late-90s and 2000s pop music. (She literally wins nearly all our music trivia games.) Here are 10 questions to get to know Kristy.
1. Who’s your go to band or artist when you can’t decide on something to listen to? I have such an eclectic taste in music that I really can’t pick just one. Instead, I would pick a station on Pandora. I really like its “Hipster Cocktail Party” station.
2. What's on your bucket list? I want to go outside the country. I’ve never gone outside of the country and I’d like to see the New Seven Wonders of the World.
3. What songs have you completely memorized? “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen, “Shoop” by Salt-n-Pepa, “Waterfalls” by TLC, “Spiderwebs” by No Doubt and many, many more.
4. What skill would you like to master? Hand lettering. It’s kind of like calligraphy but it focuses more on learning different types of fonts.
5. What is your favorite home cooked meal? I don’t know what you call it, but it’s kielbasa sausage with potatoes, corn and butter. My mom used to make it for me and now my husband makes it for me.
6. What is the first concert you attended? The first one I can remember was Maroon 5. They were a very unknown band at the time. They played at Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa and tickets were like $10. Gavin DeGraw opened for them.
7. If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time? I would binge watch all the TV shows I don’t have time to see now like “Little Big Lies,” “Game of Thrones” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”
8. How do you relax after a hard day of work? I actually don’t have that much “relaxing” time after work. I have three boys and I love to play with them, but my favorite way to relax is yoga. I love to take a yoga class over my lunch break, it just really relaxes me.
9. Have you ever been in a musical drama or play? If so, what was it? Peet Junior High’s rendition of The Wizard of Oz. I was a munchkin. I did not have any speaking lines, but there was a whistle we had to practice and I nailed it.
10. What’s the best thing that happened to you last week?
I got to take a mini-vacation up to my parent’s lake house in Minnesota with a couple of my best friends from high school. It was a ton of fun.
