Mabel Shike 2014

When did you start working for CBU?

March 2012.

What has been your favorite organization to work with during your time here at CBU?

Angels for Athletes stands out because of Kara. She is one of the nicest people I’ve met and she’s passionate about the foundation she started. She’s an overall good person, with a big heart.

Favorite movie?

Depends on the day, some days it’s Pulp Fiction, some days it’s The Fifth Element.

Favorite team?

Bring back the Sonics.

What has been your favorite moment while working for CBU?

If I had to name just one thing, having Dennis Rodman in our office was pretty interesting.

What is on your playlist?

Rilo Kiley, Seu Gorge, Bob Marley, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Cat Power, Lana Del Rey, Lucius, and a lot of miscellaneous stuff.

If you were stuck on an island what are the top three things would you bring?

Assuming I’m stuck because I don’t have a phone- Sunscreen, Swiss army knife, and a Lifestraw (a water filter).

Favorite quote?

The purpose of life is to be defeated by greater and greater things” – Rainer Maria Rilke

As previously mentioned, Mabel was voted on upon by her coworkers here at CBU as the MVP of the company for the 1st quarter of 2015. We here at Charity Benefits Unlimited are very thankful to have Mabel as a part of the CBU team!
