When you walk into Pitcairn’s Washington, DC office, you are greeted with a warm welcome from Client Service Administrator Sharon Suchoski. An integral point of contact, she is responsible for supporting the Wealth Management and Relationship Development teams and serving as a liaison with family and single family office clients. “No two days are alike, which is great because it’s challenging and never ordinary.” We asked Sharon to what it’s like to work in an office other than Pitcairn headquarters. “From the start, I noticed that everyone was reachable and responsive. Whether sitting here with me or via phone/Skype with our Philadelphia or New York offices, someone is always available when something is needed. Everyone is super conscientious about encouraging our participation in office events, book club meetings, learning, etc. Sure, there are only a handful of us here in DC so it can be quiet at times, but it always feels like we are a contributing part to the success of Pitcairn.”

What’s the best meal you’ve ever had?
“One of my all-time favorites was from Filomena Ristorante in Georgetown. It is Italian and there are actual ‘pasta mamas’ that work in the front window of the restaurant preparing fresh pasta every day. It is very unique – not refurbished in any way but every inch of the restaurant is filled with knick-knacks, wall hangings, etc. The food is amazing and the whole experience is enjoyable.”

What’s your favorite show to binge-watch?
“I have not really binge-watched anything. However, I do watch college basketball non-stop. As a graduate of University of Maryland, I always watch the Terps play, especially the conference games now that they are in the Big 10. There isn’t a time during basketball season when the TV isn’t on. Does that count as binge-watching?”

What’s a secret talent that you have?
“Talent – not sure. But, I love to sing. Anytime, anywhere. In my younger school years, I helped lead with the teacher in music classes and I sang with a group in front at church. As my kids played intramural sports, I would sometimes sing the National Anthem at their sporting events. Now I just sing for fun – around the house, office, out walking. My kids think I am ‘crazy,’ but I just love it. It makes me happy.”
