Andrea Lissor Rossi
MARKETING ASSISTANT (2019 - Present)
What is your “Real” job position?
I am currently a trainer at Dealer.com
How many years have you worked in the learning/development realm?
I have been a trainer for about two years.
What’s a favorite quote that gives you inspiration and keeps you going?
My favorite quote of all time is from an English nursery rhyme “The wise old owl sat in the oak, the more she saw the less she spoke.” I especially love this as it relates to training, because sometimes I think you can learn just as much from those you’re training as they can learn from you.
How did you get involved with VT Chapter ATD?
I took two certification courses through ATD and then was asked to conduct a SIG. Afterward, one of my coworkers let me know of an opening on the board. I had such good experiences with ATD I was excited to be a part of it!
What's one piece of advice you'd give to someone just entering this line of work?
It’s OK to stumble and struggle and it’s important to be comfortable not knowing everything. Just because you’re supposed to be a subject matter expert doesn’t mean there’s not a lot you can still learn. Be confident, be passionate and stay humble.
Where can we find you when you’re not working?
When I’m not working I love to ski (when it’s winter) and to spend time with my two rescue pups and my husband, year-round.
