Employee Spotlight: Q&A with Aqua Office Assistant Megan Nicoson

 

What is your title at Aqua and what type of work to do you do?

Office Assistant, which means I have a lot of responsibilities and try to make everything run as smoothly as possible in our division! I’m the backflow coordinator and I’m responsible for distributing locates for the state. I also coordinate all events and functions for our division.  

 

When I was a kid, my nickname was…

Megs (and still is!)

 

I work with water for a living, but my favorite water related activity is...

Fishing.

 

If I had to pick 3 words to describe myself, they’d be…

Outgoing, fun, & kind

 

 

Megan's catch of the day at Lake Vermilion. 

 

My favorite weekend activity is...

Volunteering at my local Volunteer Fire Department or visiting my nieces.

 

What’s the most frequent question that people ask you about working at a water utility?

They ask about their bill!

 

What’s the most fun experience you’ve had working for Aqua?

My first time participating in the Festival of Trees...and I’ve been hooked every year since! The FOT is a fundraising event for the hospital. Several hundred local businesses compete in a Christmas tree decorating contest and all trees are on display for viewing after judging. It’s friendly competition and the whole community gets really involved. Aqua Illinois Vermilion Division won in 2012.

In the summer, you can find me...

A psychologist

A Cat

 

If I could be one movie character, I would be...because...
