Keep reading our spotlight with Olivia to learn how she ended up in the HVAC industry and the mantra she lives her life by.

Q: How were you introduced to the HVAC industry?

Olivia: I accidentally walked into this field. I was doing temporary contract work for IT and insurance industries and after the company was originally assigned to shut down, I was assigned Greater Comfort and I never left.

Q: Greater Comfort is very connected with the local community. Speaking of the local community,  what is your favorite local restaurant?

Olivia: Mazunte and Pho Lang Thang. ( I love Tacos and Pho.)

Q: At Greater Comfort, your leadership is pivotal, and is helping to foster a healthy company culture. Do you have a mantra you live and work by?

Olivia: Brooklyn wasn’t built in just a day. It’s a spin to the phrase, ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’ by one of my favorite high school bands. I actually didn’t hear the original until much later.
