Recently there’s been a new face around the IVHFH office. Regina Ash-Moore joined the team last November as a bookkeeper and graciously sat down with us for a brief interview.
IVHFH: Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
Regina: I moved to Iowa City to attend the University of Iowa and I’ve been here ever since! My husband and I have a teenage daughter at City High and we have [five] pets in the family as well.
IVHFH: How familiar with Habitat for Humanity were you before you took this job?
Regina: Honestly, not very. I mean I knew the basics—Habitat builds houses—but I wasn’t aware of, say, the specifics of the programs. I’ve enjoyed learning more about what Habitat does, and how they do it.
IVHFH: Tell us something interesting you’ve done since you joined the team.
Regina: I learned how to use a nail gun! I was able to get out of the office one day when Construction needed some extra hands, and I got to use a nail gun and didn’t double tap it after a few tries! It was great.
IVHFH: Was that your first experience with power tools?
Regina: No way. My husband and I had to do some work in our basement a few years ago and I used a jackhammer to break up the concrete floor.
IVHFH: What do you enjoy most about working at IVHFH?
Regina: Everyone has been so welcoming. I love coming to work with such a wonderful and dedicated group of people.
IVHFH: Let’s finish up with something silly. What’s the best concert you’ve been to?
Regina: It’s gotta be Weird Al. He’s a great performer. I’ve actually seen him twice!
Welcome aboard, Regina! We love having you on our team!
