Everyday Working Mom: Tasha Santalucia
Tasha Santalucia has been a dedicated client with On Point Executive Center for since it’s infancy and is a joy to have in the office. She served in the United States Air Force for 7 years and is currently a manager of client implementations at Interlogic Outsourcing, Inc. With over 20 years experience in her field, she has the proven ability to plan and lead projects, and is passionate about quality and customer satisfaction. She is also our designated go-to person for uninvited in-office animal rescue support!
Tasha stays busy with her daughter Zoey and 5-month old Bodhi, not to mention her “fur babies”. Her greatest challenge is striving to maintain excellence in all the roles she fills. She says it’s important to remain flexible and recognize that there’s a healthy balance of give and take between them.
Tasha cherishes the everyday interactions that are unique to her family. One ritual that was inspired by her affectionate daughter’s spontaneity, is taking time every night to hug each other and recount the events of that day. It would seem that “all the little things” are what become the most meaningful. One tradition of hers that we love hearing about is her annual sugar cookie decorating parties! She sites her mother as being the woman who most influenced her life and who continues to be the rock in her family.
Her advice to other hardworking moms is: “Use your resources! Whether it’s at work to help you on a task so you can focus on something else, or at home so you can dedicate an hour to something else, create a support system so you can lean on each other from time to time. And don’t forget to take time for yourself. Take it! Don’t ask, just make it happen.” When she’s not working, you can usually find her at the beach with her family, playing volleyball, or checking out local events in Tampa Bay area.
