After the year we’ve had, we are less connected than ever. Isolation can be challenging, and as the months continue to pass, loneliness can creep in. Here at Providence Avenue, we are working harder than ever to stay connected and keep our community strong. Connecting with team members over a shared desire to succeed, and a shared passion for growth and education is vital. We’re hoping to bring you, reader, into our community and introduce some of our most vital team members.
An open letter from Providence Avenue’s Spencer Moore.
My name is Spencer Alexis Moore, and I am an Account Manager with Providence Avenue. I am twenty-two years old, and I started with Providence on August 3rd, 2020. I am from Forsyth, Georgia, a small town north of Macon, just forty-five minutes south of Atlanta. I am not yet married, but I am a dog mom to my two little buddies Ollie and Buckley. When I was a little girl, I was interested in CSI, Criminal Minds, Law & Order: SVU – any criminal justice shows really – and I thought I wanted to be a secret agent. Even as a child, I knew that was pretty farfetched, so I thought I’d go with something more attainable when I went to college. My original major was Nursing, but I quickly figured out it wasn’t for me. I switched to Communications and Public Relations because I loved the aspect of talking with people in a professional setting. Due to COVID, I wasn’t sure what the future was going to look like for me. I just happened to stumble upon the opportunity with Providence Avenue, so I feel pretty lucky!
I believe I bring a lot to the table! I am very personable, hard-working, a quick thinker, a skilled problem solver, and overall have a friendly, happy attitude. I’ve been involved with sports my whole life. When I was younger, I did gymnastics and softball. Eventually, I found my passion for competitive cheerleading. In high school, I was on multiple teams at once, so I learned how to juggle different things at once. I cheered my freshman year in college alongside joining my sorority and taking upper-level classes. In every chapter of my life, my level of determination grew. I felt like I started strong in the company when I was in training, but like riding a bike, taking the training wheels off can be an interesting transition. In all honesty, my few first days outside of training, I had my doubts. I mostly had doubts about myself because I always like to be the best at everything I do, so when I wasn’t doing phenomenal, doubt crept in. I just stuck to what I learned how to do and practiced with other people in the office, and sure enough, I felt more and more confident. I love being with people! Being able to meet so many people in this business has been very rewarding.
I take the phrase “greatest accomplishment” in a different way than most people. I would say that my greatest accomplishment is staying true to myself or overcoming self-doubt. I’ve had confidence and self-image issues throughout my life, so moving past bad days and getting to where I am now is essential. I’ve accomplished many things like graduating high school, cheering in college, graduating college, moving to a new city five hours away not knowing anyone, and many other things throughout my life. Accomplishments and success look different to everyone. I may not have bookshelves full of awards or certificates, but I have plenty of reasons to be full of joy that don’t result in a material reward. My parents always told me that as long as I’m happy, I’ll be successful. I’ve taken that to heart. I agree that you can measure success by how much money you make, how nice your car is, and how big your house is. Those are all great things for sure! However, I also define success by how happy you are, how you can make other people happy, and overall the happiness that is around you. You can have all the money in the world, but still, be unhappy. I wouldn’t call that a success. There’s a balance. Seeing how my parents and all of my family members balance material success, personal success, and their relationship with God is inspiring. I thank God every day for my blessings! I would say that the most extroverted introvert you’d ever meet. I am 100% a social butterfly, but I do love being by myself too.
