Cynthia Philpot has been been coming to theClubhou.se on a weekly basis for a while now. She is part of the community of members who work out of theClubhou.se remotely. Meet Cynthia!
1: How did you come to be a member of theClubhou.se?
I work from home and was looking for a place where I could get out of the house. After volunteering for a couple of events associated with theClubhou.se (The Augusta Warrior Project Job Fair, and TEDxAugusta 2016), I knew that theClubhou.se was a really cool place with a lot of really cool people.
2: Describe the moment you decided what you wanted to do when you grew up?
That’s an easy question – I have always wanted to be in a position to help others any way that I can. I recently began working on my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. When I grow up, I’d like to be a Licensed Professional Counselor.
3: What do you do in your current work?
I am a Project Manager for Palantir.net, a full-service web agency based out of Chicago. We work to strengthen humanity by helping others discover, create, and share knowledge. It, like theClubhou.se, is a really cool place with a lot of really cool people. Prior to working at Palantir, I worked for Morris Communications for about 18 yrs.
4: What is an expertise you have that you would like to share with others?
I believe that I connect with people really well. I never met a stranger that I didn’t know. I love people, their stories, their joys, their accomplishments.
5: What are you tinkering with at the moment?
I am building a website using an open-source platform by the name of Drupal.
6: What are you interested in learning?
I’d love to learn how to play the piano.
7: What is your favorite sci-fi movie?
Hmmm, it is a cross between “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes” and “Young Frankenstein” Do those qualify as Sci-Fi?
8: If you have not lived all of your life in Augusta, where else have you lived?
I am originally from California.
9: If you could see one thing happen in Augusta in the next 5 – 10 years, what would it be?
It would be nice to see more businesses invest in the downtown area.
10: theClubhou.se Core Values are: Risk Boldly, Honor Your Commitments, Be Worthy of Trust, Give More Than You Take, and Share Solutions. Which core value do you best exemplify and why?
I believe in honoring your commitments. Let your yes be yes, and your no be no. Also – don’t be afraid to say “I don’t know.”
