As SWE President, it’s probably easy to figure out what I do when I’m on the road. But what do I really do when I’m at home? Keep reading to see “A Day In The Life of the SWE President." For a complete look at Stacey's day, visit the Central Illinois SWE Blog now.
5:45 a.m. – Rise and shine. Time to pack lunches. This seems like the only nice thing that I do for my hubby every day.
8:45 a.m. – Coffee time to start my workday. My boss let’s me flex my hours a little so that I can workout in the morning. Gotta love that.
10:30 a.m. – Seriously? My co-workers forget to come and get me when they left to go to a meeting in East Peoria. Of course I didn’t realize it was in East Peoria. I thought it was in my building in Mossville. Guess I'll have to call in.
11:30 a.m. – Working on the agenda for our next SWE board of directors teleconference with our SWE secretary, Wendy.
12:30 p.m. – Trying to find a time to have a meeting with our leaders in the U.S. and India. Calendars are not cooperating but Leslie is all over it.
2 p.m. – Spending an hour on the ball trying to do some core work while doing emails. Not sure it helps.
3 p.m. – Trying to figure out the best way to use our new #CaterpillarSTEM hashtag with my co-worker Michelle.
4:30 p.m. – Time to talk to my #2, the SWE president-elect, Elizabeth. While we don’t talk every day, we do touch base with each other a lot!!
5 p.m. – Trying to resist the urge to go for those chocolate donuts. Unfortunately, I lost the battle. That darn #64.
6 p.m. – Badging out after another productive day. I intentionally park far away so that I can get just a little bit more walking in. I sit a lot during the day, so any little bit helps.
6:30 p.m. – The problem with really short hair is that you have to get it cut every month. So lucky to have Amy as my fabulous stylist.
7:30 p.m. – Love love love that my hubby Kerry makes dinner for me every night. And it’s so cute that Georgie is always close by to help him out.
8 p.m. – I should be opening up the mail and staying on top of things while Kerry is cooking, but nah … I just don’t feel like it tonight. The mail can wait.
9:30 p.m. – Quick online chat with my dear friend April. Of course we have to talk about SWE related stuff.
10:30 p.m. – I need to pack for one of those multi-city trips again. You’d think this would be easy since I’m on the road so much, but I always struggle with what to pack. Maybe I have too many clothes.
