I’m thankful for…

On today’s Meet the Team, we’re going to get to know our Braustin employees a little bit better and hear what they’re thankful for this holiday season.

Rahki Perry: Being alive, being healthy.

Jessica Ramirez: My family, my friends, and just being alive and healthy.

Sydney Sanders: I overcame quite a bit of loss this year in my family. Just pulling through and moving forward is something I’m really thankful for.

Jorge Faz: To have a house and to have a family to support and to love and that loves me back.

Elida Mainez: Definitely my kids and my amazing, amazing fiancé.

Vee Hidalgo: For my little one and all the adventure she brings on a daily basis.

Aaron Gossett: Being able to spend time with my son.

Cody Johnson: I’m thankful for the operation department. I have a lot of support.

John Wondra: To be able to work for a company where my voice can actually make a difference. The amount of things and ideas I talk about in other jobs, it just goes unnoticed or it’s “submit a form to corporate,” right? And who knows if they even ever read it.

Cody Johnson: As a department, we’re taking steps in the right direction with John and Jessica doing their part. It’s really amazing.

Jessica Ramirez: I didn’t have any experience in doing loans or anything like that for homes. So I’m thankful they gave me a chance.

John Wondra: Here, I get to voice my opinion and not only is it understood and listened to, but a lot of the stuff we’re doing now comes from some of the ideas that I’ve had or even other teammates.

It’s just such a great feeling, knowing that the impact I have can be met at such a larger scale with this company. So it’s pretty neat to be able to do that.

Cody Johnson: On a personal level, thankful for family, I’m thankful for having a good place to live, wife, son healthy, and for a great job opportunity like Braustin and overall.

Rahki Perry: I’m thankful for AP. He’s been sort of a mentor, but he wouldn’t say that. I think he’s been there for me this whole journey of just coming out of school and stepping right into my career. And everybody here, it’s been good vibes.

Jessica Ramirez: I am actually happy waking up and coming to work. Working with everybody here is pretty great.

John Wondra: Personally, I’m just thankful to be able to be together with family, about being around everyone that I haven’t gotten to be with in a long time. I’m super excited about just being in their presence and I’m actually really looking forward to making my homemade macaroni.

Sydney Sanders: I’m really thankful for Rahki. We’ve developed a really tight-knit friendship over the last year. We started around the same time, about two months apart, and she’s just been my ride-or-die ever since.

Jorge Faz: To have met some incredible families, the White family, the de Santos family, the Lopez family, the list goes on. Getting to tell their stories.
