Each week, Continuum spotlights an employee who has gone above and beyond. The spotlight is more than just recognition of the hard work being done at Continuum, but a look into the person behind that work. We find out what our employees do for fun, what their favorite movies are, what their passions are and much more. We also ask them about their experiences working at Continuum and what they like most about their job. Check back each week to find out who made the Employee Spotlight.
This week, Nicole Hunter Hart is being featured!
Nicole is the Senior Manager, Partner Success Programs on the Partner Success team working in our Boston office and has been with the company for over two years.
Let's get to know Nicole a little better...
How did you hear about Continuum in the first place? "A friend referred me."
What is your favorite thing about working for Continuum? "My favorite thing about working for Continuum is the challenging work and the opportunity to drive programs which improve our partners’ experiences with us."
What is your best memory as a Continuum employee? "My first summer party on a harbor cruise. It happened soon after I joined and was a great way to have fun and get to know my colleagues outside of the office."
What is one skill you have acquired since starting at Continuum? "I have learned to navigate the public transit system like a pro!!"
Do you have any fun/funny stories that involve any of your co-workers? "I do! but a lady never tells!"
What do you look for in a good company? "I look for a vibrant environment and a business that is growing where I can be challenged and given opportunities to learn, grow, and expand my skillset."
Would you recommend applying at Continuum to a friend? "Yes, if they were a good fit for our culture."
What is an interesting fact about yourself? "I volunteered when I was in my 20s for 2 weeks in Honduras to help improve a boy’s school/orphanage. It was an amazing, terrifying, and eye-opening experience that changed my life."
What is your favorite movie? "This is such a hard question. It’s hard to choose one movie….I will say Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban because it was my favorite HP book. I also love superhero movies!"
What is your favorite TV show? "Currently Game of Thrones and Ray Donovan."
What do you like to do for fun? "I like to try new restaurants, go to the movies, read books, have a spa day, decorate, and host movie watching nights with my friends."
What is your hidden talent? "I don’t know that I hide it that well but, I’m amazing at organizing. I may have organized closets, bathrooms, kitchens and/or rooms for all of my friends and family at one point or another. I am ruthless at cleaning out the old and making what you have look great!"
What is your favorite animal? "Probably a cheetah or snow leopard…because they are fierce and elegant and their fur is so beautiful."
What kind of music do you like to listen to? "Mostly country (new and old) and classic rock with a little old school R&B and current Pop/Top 40s."
Do you play any instruments? "Zero instrument talents."
Do you follow/play any sports? If so, which teams/sports? "I like watching the Patriots but 'follow' probably isn't what I would call my watching habits."
If you could travel anywhere on earth to vacation, where would you go? "A tie between an epic journey on the Orient Express (think Agatha Christie novel) or an over-the-water bungalow in French Polynesia."
What is your go-to karaoke song? "You won't catch me anywhere near karaoke!"
If you could have any super power, what would it be and why? "I secretly want to be the Black Widow/Natasha Romanova. She is a classically trained ballerina and in martial arts, has been enhanced by biotechnology to make her resistant to aging and disease, and has a gifted intellect with the ability to psychologically manipulate. (I would use that last part for good of course!!!)"
