Louise Houlihan Gallan

Office Manager
I learned and grew so much from my work with Tom Morey and Company:
I think one of the most lasting take-always was that taking a chance on young people, giving them responsibilities, asking them to to see themselves and others as “becoming” their true selves, not looking at limitations. This helped me learn about people and look for their skills.
When we were in the first plant behind the girls and boys club, we had a sign over the door that said “inventions”, this attracted so many amazing and interesting people who dropped in to share ideas. This led me to always want to be on the cutting edge in companies I would work for throughout the rest of my life.
I also loved that the main tools were a sharp knife and heat. This led me to look for the basics and simplest way to accomplish a task.
I also loved that when the surf is up, you took a break and went surfing. This taught me to look for the joy and not be so overly concerned in the task that you forget what life is about.
