Connectors by Nature
We are “Islanders” as the cousins say. Born and raised on Staten Island, we grew up with a deep sense of community (we are all on this island together) and an understanding that life is enriched when we cross the water (class trip to the UN!) and connect with others. These great life lessons influence us every day. That duality, a sense of community and an ability to connect, is how Snappy Solutions operates. Our goal is to bring you the tools you need to keep workplaces running and keep people and the planet safe. Clients and manufacturers become our community. We connect with hundreds of customers, manufacturers, service providers, and trusted SMEs from all over the world. Our lives have expanded quite a bit since childhood on the Island, but community and connection remain, no matter where we go!
What a truly unique experience I had attending Notre Dame Academy (NDA) on Staten Island. This High School campus is comprised of buildings over a century old and gardens, lawns and woods perched atop a hill with sweeping views of NY Harbor and the Verrazano bridge. We, the students, simultaneously had the experience of, “This is our community,” and “The world is wide and calling!” A beloved feature of the Academic year was “Culture Day” where several times a year we chose an adventure dedicated to expanding our experience of theatres, museums, music, religions, history, food, and languages. Travel to a Spanish restaurant, order in Spanish, eat a food you never have and then see a film produced in Spain! Another highlight of the year was a chance to volunteer. Raise money, shop for groceries, prepare meals together in a commercial kitchen, serve people in a soup kitchen. Learning was active and immersive, and it expanded our view. NDA knew about DEI (Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion) long before there were letters to describe it. Life is enriched when we see diverse perspectives and are open to what can be.
Call the People
I have a friend whose husband is a very practical guy. When they moved into their new apartment everything was great, until something broke. “Jeff, the table leg is breaking. What can we do?” “Call the people,” replied Jeff. “What? What people?” said Lisa. “The people- there have to be people. I am not one of those people. I am an accountant, I can do the peoples’ taxes, but I can’t fix the table. Call the people.” Lisa was on her own- she is very capable, very handy, but she needed to find the people. Have you ever felt like this? I need something, but am not sure where to look or who to call? There has to be someone who does this, but who?
