Name and Title: Patricia Taillon, Glenwood ReStore Associate
Home town: I was born in Mississippi but lived in Southern California since I was 2 months old!
Current town: Wake Forest, NC
When did you start working at Habitat Wake? I have worked for Habitat Wake since October 2015. Best place and people to ever work with!
What is your favorite thing about working for Habitat? Talking with customers about their projects and watching a customer’s face light up when they find exactly what they’re looking for — and it’s on discount!
What does your typical work day look like? Get the store ready for open, greet donors and help with their drop-off, price donations and help our volunteers place things in the store for our customers to purchase.
What do you do in your spare time? Hang out with my dog Donnie and either relax or go on adventurous walks with him through downtown Wake Forest and the Seminary (which is a beautiful walk).
Do you have any pets or children? I am very blessed to have two boys: Tyler-Vaughn and Gunner. I also have three adopted furbabies: Donnie Darko (dog) Tygurlilly, and OktoberSkye (cats). Some say I rescued them but they have rescued me.
Favorite meal: Most anything from Over the Falls in Wake Forest (my son is one of the cooks).
Favorite sport: For baseball I like the Red Sox and California Angels, for football, I’m a Dolphins fan.
Dream vacation: Go back to see Ireland. I loved it when I went there once before but I would love a month of travel to both Ireland and Italy.
Do you have any strange hidden talents? Not really hidden talents but I do like to make paracord bracelets and key chains for fun. And can whip up a pretty knitted scarf!!!
Favorite movie line: We’re gonna need a bigger boat!!!!!! (Jaws).
Favorite piece you’ve seen or purchased in the ReStore: I have some cool items I have found in ReStore, most of my apartment is furnished with ReStore pieces!
