Meet Lexi Gauslow, Harmony Healthcare Recruiter
1. What motivates you to wake up and go to work?
I really enjoy the people I work with – both coworkers and consultants.
2. Tell us about a funny high school memory.
My nickname was Lighthouse because you could see me coming from anywhere. I was tall with a beacon of blonde hair, and I was usually near the water.
3. If you could learn to do anything, what would it be and why?
I’d love to learn to speak as many languages as possible. I think they are an important part of culture, and I have always loved to travel and meet new people from all over the world.
4. Name 3 actors you’d want to play you at different phases of your life and tell us why.
- Lisa Kudrow: My friends always said I was like her character Phoebe: a bit bohemian, down for any adventure, and definitely eccentric. I also had her same run a few too many times.
- Charlize Theron: She makes a great ice queen and gets anything done that she puts her mind to.
- Cate Blanchett: In my later years, I want run away to live the nice – but kind of scary – forest elf life like she did in LOTR.
5. Create a soundtrack to your life with just 5 songs.
- “Swagger” by Flogging Molly: The main line is “Don’t know where I’m goin’,” and all I can say is same, but I’m having a good time along the way. It’s been my getting lost song for a long time, and that happens pretty often.
- “Hair, Nails, Hips, Heels” by Todrick Hall: I’ve been a been a bit obsessed with drag (thanks, RuPaul!) for a long time, and this song is a jam. I may have danced to this song on a bar or 2 in Peru.
- “Atrévete-te-te” by Calle 13: A lot of the last few years of my life have been spent in South America. I got to know this song road tripping in Bolivia. It’s always good to dare yourself to get out there.
- “Suavemente” by Elvis Crespo: This has been the pump up song for me and a close friend of mine for ages! It certainly deserves a place on the soundtrack of my life.
- “Save My Soul” by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy: It’s hard to choose a blues song that doesn’t make me sound sad or murderous, but blues and swing have been an integral part of my life since I happened onto it in college and started learning the dances. It may have saved my soul just a bit.
6. How do you define success?
Constantly getting better and putting in your all. For me, it’s all about beating your own personal record and helping others along the way.
7. What’s one thing you’re really good at?
Swimming and teaching people to do so. I used to compete, and I basically lived in the water growing up.
8. What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
This quote from Maya Angelou has always stuck with me, and I do my best to live my life by it:
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
