Codie: I’m Codie. I’m the Strategic Sales Administrator here at Northwest Enforcement. This is my dog Ruby. She comes in once or twice a week. She’s the morale booster, engagement manager. I’ve been with Northwest Enforcement close to two years.
Codie: I live with a roommate right now in like a townhouse-style apartment, which Ruby loves because there are so many stairs for her to run up and down all day. I try to be outdoors as much as possible. It’s going back into the rainy season. It’s me questioning that choice, but this past summer I got a kayak, so I did a lot of that. I love snowshoeing. I used to borrow my friend’s, but I just bought some snowshoes for this year, so I’m excited to get out there and use those. Yes, I am going on a seven-mile hike in the rain tomorrow with Ruby, so we’ll see how that goes.
Interviewer: And you got her a little raincoat, right?
Codie: Yep, she’s got a rain jacket.
Interviewer: When you first met Ruby, how small is she? She’s a pretty small dog now.
Codie: Yeah, I would say probably about the size of this toy for her. She looked actually pretty old because she hadn’t been groomed, and so her fur was so long that it like covered her face, and she’s got this gray hair, so people thought she was like 10 years old.
Interviewer: Can you sum Northwest Enforcement up in one or two words?
Codie: I think genuine. I don’t think that there’s anyone here that has made a commitment or promise or about the biggest or smallest thing and let that fall through. Sometimes it’s just someone saying like, “Oh yeah, I’ll forward you that email,” or, “Oh yeah, I’ll help you out with that task,” and sometimes it’s things like, “I reward my employees on a quarterly basis by giving them all raises.”
Codie: All of those things have come true for me, and I really appreciate that. Also, the ability to just have an open and honest conversation with not only my direct reports but my co-workers and my bosses who are the owners of the company. Like that’s really great. It makes me feel like my voice has been heard, but it also makes me feel like when they say things to us, they mean them, and they’re coming from their heart.
Interviewer: Thank you, Codie.
Codie: Thank you. Happy Friday.
Interviewer: Happy Family Friday.
