Meeting The Head Office Team - Introducing Stephanie Migliore
Stephanie joined the Mini Maestros team in 2015 and is our registrar extraordinaire! She looks after over 900 Mini Maestros Head Office students and their families at any given time in her role as Mini Maestros Registrar. Her amazing skill in remembering so many names and individual scenarios, borders on genius. Stephanie’s attention to detail, precision in her work, and her bubbly nature makes her a pivotal member of the team. She is also a fantastic mentor for all Mini Maestros teachers and franchisees with regards to their administrative work. Stephanie is always a delight to work with and we are sure she will continue to spread her wings and continue her wonderful work with the Mini Maestros family.
We interviewed Stephanie about super powers, life advice and deserted islands, here are her answers.
Question 1: Assuming you already have food and water, what 3 things would you take to a deserted island?
My dog and loyal friend - Bella, a tennis ball, and some good music.
Question 2: Who is your favourite band/musician at the moment?
Ed Sheeran and Adele – both are so talented and their music is beautiful.
Question 3: What superpower would you like to have and why?
I would love to have the ability to teleport; being able to visit friends/family easier, having more time in the day, no sitting in traffic! Also to have the power to be able to go back in time, not to change anything – but to relive experiences. I'd give anything to go back to my childhood even just for a day; where there were no smartphones, no social media, and when playing involved being in the yard for hours with a box of buttons, coloured chalk and my imagination.
Question 4: What are 3 pieces of advice you would give to a child as they embark on their life’s journey?
1. Appreciate; not just the usual things, but the small things that we sometimes take for granted – time with loved ones, fresh air, food and water, that person who waved you into the traffic this morning.
2. Learn kindness, compassion and respect; realise that we are no more important than everyone else. Respect the opinions, beliefs and views of others, even if you don’t share them.
3. Accept your mistakes and never stop learning; no one is perfect! Accept that you're human and that you will do things you regret. You will take a wrong turn, hurt someone's feelings, or make bad choices. Be open to making mistakes and embrace them as an opportunity to learn valuable life lessons.
Question 5: What’s the best thing about working for Mini Maestros and being part of the Head Office team?
I love being a part of such a passionate, dedicated and encouraging team of people. We're like a family here. I don’t feel like I have to come to work each day, I want to come to work each day, and that’s important to me.
