The Aplos 3 with Jayne Fossett


fossett-jayne-bioWe love the fun and quirky side of our Aplos team, so we’re going to start highlighting random Aplos employees in a series we’ll call ‘Three Answers.’ Each person gives three answers to each question they’re asked. If you’re wondering why the number three, here’s why.


For this inaugural ‘Aplos 3′ post, we wanted to introduce to you Aplos’ customer support manager (and all around sassy human!) Jayne Fossett. She’s smart, funny, and really good with people (she’s all ours, you can’t have her!). To get a sense of what really makes Jayne tick, read on below.

Three OCD quirks?

Oh gosh . . . my cover has been blown . . .
1. I have to eat things in even numbers. Snack-ish items like grapes, crackers, popcorn, almonds, or M&Ms. But if we’re talking hamburgers, or bigger food items, I’ll only eat one of those. I just generally want things done in even numbers, so the fact that I’m giving only three answers for each question is bugging me.
2. I am an off-the-charts neat freak . . . so a messy kitchen, bathroom, or things that are out of place bother me to no end.
3. A hand shake has to fit grip to grip. If it doesn’t, I have to ask for a redo.
4. Giving a fourth answer to this question satisfies my OCD-ness. 😉
