Hello everyone, meet Erika Driscoll, Executive Assistant at State Street Global Advisors.
Where are you from?
I grew up and lived in Boston for 32 years and then moved to the South Shore 15 years ago. I loved being in the city, but enjoy the quietness and serenity of the wooded area that I'm currently living in.
Sharing this Valentine's Day with anyone?
I am married to my high school sweetheart (and best friend) for 15 years, but we have been together for 28 years this summer.
What’s your favorite downtown restaurant?
My favorite downtown restaurants are in Chinatown. I love visiting the small places that take pride in their heritage and cooking. I often visit restaurants that the local residents go to.
Any travel plans to escape the cold? What are your favorite destinations?
To escape the frigid air in New England during the winter, we usually travel someplace that is tropical and warm. This year, we plan to visit San Salvador, Bahamas. Over the past few years we have been to Little Cayman, Grand Cayman, Bonaire , Mexico and Bermuda - which is an all time favorite.
What do you do for fun outside of work?
My hobbies include playing piano and, during the warmer weather, riding my bike.
What's the best part of your Job?
The best part of my job are the people. I've been working for my current employer for 15 years, I feel lucky that I come to a great place to work and enjoy coming to work every day.
What are you reading now?
I just finished reading Gone Girl Gone by Gillian Flynn. An easy read that I enjoyed while vacationing in Grand Cayman.
How would you describe your eyewear style? What do you love about your glasses?
My eyewear style is simple. I like glasses that can be classy, but also fun. The Envision stylists did an outstanding job helping me choose a frame and making sure that they look great on me.
