Welcome back to Meet The Staff! Today’s focus is on Lee Richardson, Pot-O-Gold’s very own accountant of 2-years. Lee was born September 24, 1975 and is from Ponchatoula, LA. Lee has been married to his beautiful wife, Bria, for 17 year. They have 2 beautiful girls together, Allee and Anna, and also have a pup named Cocoa. In his free time, Lee enjoys fantasy football, cooking, and playing basketball. When it comes to Lee’s palate, he favors a good taco. Don’t we all. Although his favorite food is tacos, his favorite restaurant is China Lotus. Imagine a taco shell stuffed with chinese food. Sounds interesting. Lee’s ideal vacation is to spend some time in Hawaii in the mountains and on the beach. If Lee could have any actor play him in a movie, he would want Tom Cruise. Lee loves the Mission Impossible movies. Lee is a tall guy so Tom Cruise may need some stilts. When Lee needs to wake up and get motivated for they day, he listens to Eye of the Tiger by Survivor. It’s his morning alarm. I can see it now. Lee opening his eyes on the first chord, jumping out of bed and air boxing like Sylvester Stallone in Rocky III. Lee’s best attribute is his trustworthiness. Lee’s most unusual habit is that he loves to scare people. “I live in a house full of women. It’s fun!” I can’t call this habit unusual. It’s one of my favorite past times. If Lee could have any vehicle, he would want a monster truck with a monster trailer. “I wouldn’t have to worry about flooding.” Usually I would poke fun at anyone wanting a monster truck, but this man here is thinking practically. Louisiana is one giant flood plain, but the food is great…so we stay. Speaking of food, if Lee could meet anyone, he would want to meet Chef Bobby Flay. “Who doesn’t want to meet the best chef in the world!?” I’m more of a Gordon Ramsay man myself, but to each their own. Funny enough, Lee wanted to be a chef when he was younger. Hey, me too! A little unknown fact about Lee is that he is a deacon at Jerusalem Baptist Church. On of Lee’s most fond memories is breaking out of an escape room with his family with 32 seconds left to spare. I’ve always wanted to do a Saw themed escape room. It sounds like a blast. Lee’s old nickname is Lee for Three. He earned that nickname when he played basket ball as a 3-point shooter. If Lee could visit any place in the world, he would go to where he could catch the biggest fish in the world because he loves to fish. So whale sharks in Cozumel, Mexico? I believe the phrase, “we’re going to need a bigger boat” is quite relevant here. Three things on Lee’s bucket list to be inducted into the basketball hall of fame, going on a cruise with his wife, and scuba diving. Lee’s guilty pleasure is one we can all get behind…PIES! “I absolutely love pies! Chocolate & Pecan.” I want pumpkin pie now. One of the best pieces of advice Lee has ever received was from his dad. “When it comes to helping people, you should never ask why. Your first thought should be why not.” Lee’s first job was a stock boy at a grocery store. Finally, if Lee could have one super power it would be super speed because driving gets old. Hopefully he doesn’t start messing with the speed force and leaves time alone.
Well that’s going to be it for this week’s Meet The Staff! Come back next week to find out more about Pot-O-Gold’s amazing employees!
