Anne Longley, Placement Manager

What are you known for?

Organization, planning and basically making the trains run on time!

Name 3 things you cannot live without.

A daily hug, dark chocolate and a good cup of coffee.

Where is your happy place?

A café in the south of France, perhaps with a nice glass of chilled rosé and some good people-watching.

Who was your favorite teacher and why?

Brother James. He asked me to join the math team even though I wasn’t one of his “fastest” problem solvers. He told me that he needed someone with the tenacity to keep working even after the timer went off. I’ll never forget his vote of confidence and learning about the importance of having many different skillsets on a team.
