The Tera Shirma Story
Secretarial Skills
Neica Lee Rompollo at Reception Desk of Studio A

It was now time to hire a secretary and I put an ad in the paper which received a great response.

One of the early interviewees was Neica Lee Rompollo.

When I saw her walk through the door, I knew she was the one. She was outrageously beautiful and extremely smart. She just had a way about her that told me she was right for Tera Shirma. 

I interviewed her and we had a great conversation. After she left, I told Fred I was hiring her. Fred mentioned we still had a bunch of others to see, but I told him to cancel them. 

Neica Lee was selected, a decision I would never regret as she would figure prominently in the future success of the studio.

We remain friends to this day.
