At Wilkins Miller, we know that our success comes from our employees’ unique abilities and personalities. Each month, we will give you a behind-the-scenes look at a member of our team. This month, we’ll introduce you to Brandy Pate. We hope you’ll enjoy getting to know what makes Brandy a great addition to our team.
Q: What do you do at Wilkins Miller?
I am the Firm Administrator. I am involved in administration and facilities and am responsible for making sure the office runs smoothly.
Q: What makes you good at your job?
I love organization, processes, and developing the team. I feel like I have grown up in the firm and have learned so much from others over the years.
Q: What do you like most about Wilkins Miller?
It’s cliché, but I really do love the people. Wilkins Miller is a part of my extended family. I love what our partner group believes a “best company” should be and the culture that allows everyone to play a role in our success.
Q: What is your favorite band/genre of music/artist?
Country music is my jam, probably Maren Morris if I had to pick a favorite, but I also love the Classic Rock, Hit Music, and 90s rap is a guilty pleasure.
Q: When not working, what do you enjoy?
Spending time/vacationing with family – outdoors and enjoying adventures and nature – in the woods, at the beach, or in the snow.
Q: What one thing would you take on a deserted island?
My husband, he would find a way to get us home!
Q: What is your favorite food?
Crab claws (marinated or fried)
Q: What is your favorite quote?
I really struggle to think that anyone is a victim of their circumstances. My new favorite quote I heard on a podcast with Alex Dorr – “Your circumstances are not the reason you can’t succeed they are the exact reason why you must succeed.”
Q: What is an interesting fact about you?
My love story is one of my favorites – I started life young, married my best friend and high school sweetheart at 17, and nearly 30 years later, we are enjoying life to the fullest with our little family. We have 1 daughter and 1 son in love and 2 of the best grandbaby boys ever (and several fur babies). Family is really my favorite thing.
Q: What is your life goal/dream/aspiration?
To always make memories for the “Good Day Book”. Never take a moment for granted and make sure that I truly am present and spend time with those most important to me.
