Employee Spotlight: Jill Semprini

  1. What brought you to work at Hoyle, Tanner?
    • First, I really wanted to work in New Hampshire. I had worked in Boston for four years prior, and that was not a fun commute while living in Portsmouth. When a former colleague recommended Hoyle, Tanner and said it was the top firm to work for in the state, applying here just made sense.
  2. What do you like most about working at Hoyle, Tanner? (If he/she has been here for a number of years, add: What has kept you here so long?
    • I love the people! And the diversity of the work is great. You get to see smaller projects through from beginning to end, but you also have the larger, more complex projects to balance that out. Overall, it’s a good mix.
  3. Can you talk about a favorite memory here? Proudest moment?
    • I’ve only been here for a short time, so I’d like to think I’m still making memories! Check back with me in a few years, and I’ll let you know J
  4. How do you spend your time outside of the office? Any favorite pastimes or family activities?
    • I spend a lot of time during the week relaxing with my husband and my dog, Rambo. On the weekends, I read a lot (I love to read!) and will do yoga from time to time. My friends and I catch up over dinner often, too.
  5. What is one thing you couldn’t live without (& why)?
    • My sister gave me a ring for my birthday several years ago, and it happened to be her birthstone. I’ve always adored her birthstone, and I now cherish the ring.
  6. Tell me a random fact most people don’t know about you.
    • In general, I’m an open book. However, I do love Mandy Moore movies, which most people probably wouldn’t expect [laughs]. I don’t think she’s particularly a great actress, but there’s something about her movies that sucks me right in. My favorite isTangled – Even though it’s an animated move, I absolutely love it.
  7. Do you have a favorite quote or any words you live by?
    • Take deep breaths.” Sometimes I can get so frustrated, and I just have to remember to take deep breaths. It helps me calm down and put things into perspective.
  8. Before working here, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?
    • I babysat a 3-year-old in college. He was too cute and super smart. He could tell you anything about animals, dinosaurs – you name it. Anything you told him, he would remember. It was really cool.
  9. Would you ever want to be famous? If so, for what?
    1. Yeah! Doesn’t everyone? I think it would be cool to discover something new. Something useful.
  10. If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be?
    1. Being able to fly intrigues me a lot.
