Just over a year ago, I started to use a Sun Ray @ Home.
I wasn't so sure if I'd like to work from home (I thought I'd be lonely!)
I'm remote from the rest of my team that is in California, but stay very well connected -- I've worked with virtual teams my entire 11+ yrs at Sun, so I know how to get my work done from just about anywhere.
Adding a Sun Ray@Home into my worklife added a whole new opportunity for flexibility in my overall life. With minimal travel on the horizon, I finally broke down and got a dog a few months after my Sun Ray arrived.
Grace (or as I call her - the best officemate I've ever had!) came to my home via the Animal Rescue Network of New England (ARNNE). She is an older dog who spent over 400 days in an animal shelter before finding her way to NH.
Of all the benefits that my Sun Ray @ Home has provided to ensure some work/life balance, the opportunity to save Grace from one more day in the shelter is at the very top of my list!
Heard of Sun Ray Girl?!?!? Meet SUN RAY DOG! (above) Grace taking a nap under my desk. (And, in case you are wondering about the Dell on the desk, it's seldom on now that I have my Sun Ray @ Home!)
