8 Interns : 2 Months : 1 Office - Meet Madeline! - Seva Team

Written by Jaime Fawcett

Welcome to the first ever installment of 8 Interns : 2 Months : 1 Office — a brand new series the Seva Call writers are undertaking to give you a sneak peek into the lives of the Seva Call interns. Each week we will volley a round of questions at one of our interns in no particular order of importance, relevance, or hilarity.

Some answers will leave you wanting more, and some may have you thinking T-M-I. Read at your leisure and at your own risk.

Hopes, fears, what they had for breakfast this morning! No answer is too big or small. Just think about it, now you’ll be able to fawn over your favorite intern all you want.


You: Rochelle’s mom owns a cattery??!? I love cats! Oh mi gawd, we should be best friends!

Me: She really does own a cattery. *nods*

Today, I would like to introduce Madeline! She is one of Seva Call’s lovely customer service representatives, born and raised here in Potomac, Maryland. She’s a Mid-Westerner at heart though, spending 9 months of the year at University of Wisconsin, Madison, where she is studying for a B.S. in Life Science Communications. She loves all things food and travel-related, as you can see in her photos from her trip to Israel.

What is your biggest pet peeve, like, you would saw off your left foot to avoid the situation?

Being stuck behind people that walk slow. And when you can’t get around them because they’re walking in a line! I hate it.

Any interesting hobbies? Running? Knitting? Spelunking? Underwater basket weaving?

HAHA, well, none of those. I really like walking my dog, Juneau. That’s not as interesting as underwater basket weaving but my family and I walk him around a lot of interesting places nearby.

QUICK! Pitch your most absurd startup idea?

A company that delivered Chipotle. I don’t know why Chipotle hasn’t invested in delivery. They should get on that. I would totally be a middle man for them.

Speaking of Chipotle, what’s your signature meal?

Burrito Bowl with pulled pork, white rice (none of that brown ish), black beans, mild salsa, cheese, lettuce, aaaaaand guac.

Coke or Pepsi. Choose wisely.

*wince* Neither. I don’t drink soda.

What was your favorite class in school and why?

I took a class about the evolution of music from the 1920’s to the present. I loved it. It was a small class so there was a lot of discussion, and we got to listen to a lot of cool music and learn about how bands got their start. It was really interesting, and the professor was awesome.

Tell me about your most ridiculous school/work assignment, classmate/co-worker experience, embarrassing situation?

I used to work at a pizza shop and we were about to close, and a huge rush came in of soccer kids and families, and I had a full tray of drinks. It just went everywhere. I drenched people and soda got on their phones. It was sooooo bad. I cried.

Favorite holiday?

Ummmmm, hmmmmm, favorite holiday…Chanukah, I guess. You know, presents and stuff.

What did you want to be when you were five and how does that compare to what you want/are doing now?

I don’t remember having a dream job when I was younger, but I have a dream job now. I want to be a host for a show on the Travel Channel, which basically means I want to be Anthony Bourdain, who hosts No Reservations. He just gets to travel everywhere and eat food! That would be awesome!

If the zombie apocalypse occurred and you had to bring 4 other Seva Call employees with you, who would it be and why?

Jaime (Thats me!): Good company; Kyle: He looks like he could kick zombie butt.; Allie: She would be good company also.; Andre: He could also kick major zombie butt

Favorite book/movie/artist/song/TV show, etc.?

Favorite Movie, that’s tough. I’m gonna go with Fried Green Tomatoes.

Favorite Band: The Shins.

I can tell you my favorite food? Pasta.

Hogwarts house?


Why is your watch so big?

It was a gift. I don’t know, don’t make fun of my watch!

Something that “skeeves” you out?

Gills, ugh. That scene in Harry Potter four when he grows the gills? Ugh. That was it for me. I had a conniption in the movie theater. *shivers*

Welp, that’s it for Madeline! Many thanks to her for parting such personal information to me and Seva Call’s readers. Next week we will be introduced to our a capella-singing junior-sales-representative, Josh. Perhaps, he will serenade me during our interview.

See you next week, Seva Callers!
