Each month, one (and sometimes two!) of our incredible consultants is “chosen to” receive recognition because they truly embody our core values—Accountability, Partnership, Drive, Curiosity, and Transparency—with their clients and our consultant community. I get the honor of asking them a few fun questions beyond their daily work deliverables! Meet Cynthia Borsheim, our July consultant of the month.
Q: What is the most dangerous thing you have ever done?
A: Probably night swimming off the reef in Tahiti at night, not knowing that’s when the sharks feed.
Q: What is your passion outside of work?
A: My fabulous kid. That’s about all the passion I have time for.
Q: What’s your primary assignment all about?
A: Writing marketing copy to support a variety of projects, specifically product content.
Q: What is your #1 expertise if people want to reach out to you for advice? (work or non-work)
A: I have successfully freelanced/been self-employed for the vast majority of my career (all but about 5 years of over nearly 30. I’m full of tidbits about pulling that off.
Q: Where do you like to volunteer your time or donate your extra cash? What organizations do you support?
A: I volunteer at/with my daughter’s school. I support a number of organizations including Planned Parenthood and Homeward Pet. And for the first time, I supported a few candidates in the primary race this cycle.
Q: In honor of your being Consultant of the Month, we would like to donate $250 in your name to the organization of your choice! Which organization would you like us to donate to?
A: Converge Media. Omari Salisbury’s citizen reporting of the Seattle protests have provided objective coverage (livestreams from the barricades, walkthroughs, interviews with Police Chief etc). They are doing remarkably empathetic, honest, and insightful work.
I’m personally impressed with the dedication our consultants have to their work, but also to the wider world. If you know someone like this, please tell them about Projectline and point them to our career page. We are always hiring!
