With offices and clients in different parts of the country, we were curious to hear what Senderoans in each of our markets love about working in different cities. We sat down with Corinne Owen to hear more about her experience living and working in Nashville.
Corinne joined Sendero in 2019 after graduating from Vanderbilt University with degrees in Human and Organizational Development and French. She has experience in the retail, hospitality, service, and utility industries.
Tell us about a typical day working from Nashville.
Nashville is never more beautiful than in October. The humidity subsides, giving way to deep cobalt blue skies and light breezes that rustle the yellow, orange, and red transitions to fall. I spent the first two years of my career at Sendero in Dallas, and although I loved experiencing a new city and exploring different neighborhoods, I moved back to my hometown to help establish this new market for Sendero. You’ll still find me in Dallas frequently for quarterly all-company meetings and important client engagements, though.
It’s hard to describe a “typical” day in Nashville, as my client and internal work changes often and this city is changing even faster. However, to give you an idea, I’ll take you along on my Tuesday. Although Sendero offers remote working, sometimes I like to be surrounded by others in a productive setting, so off to the office I go. Our office is located in one of the trendiest neighborhoods in Nashville, the Gulch, on the edge of downtown. Ever seen the famous wings mural? We work just down the street. Today is a good balance of meetings and focus time, so I arrive at the office in time to check emails and messages and update my project teams on upcoming site migrations.
Today the office has breakfast tacos from Ladybird – a local favorite of mine – so I snag a bacon, egg, and cheese taco and set up shop with the best view of Nashville. Being able to glance up and see my growing city feels wistful sometimes as I remember when it was nowhere near an “it” city. The growth has been good, though. It’s brought new people, new restaurants, new sports teams, and new opportunities for families and businesses alike.
