Staff Development & Training is pleased to announce that Justin Bowie has joined our team as our new Business Office Manager. Mr. Justin Bowie is joining us from FSU’s Department of Student Support & Transitions. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge and skills in the areas leadership, strategic planning, think tanks, public speaking, operational management, customer service, and the Maxient Behavioral Management Records System, just to name a few. To say that we are thrilled to welcome Justin to our SD&T family is an understatement. Now, let’s get to know Justin a little more with a 10-question lightening round.

1. Where are you from?

Justin: I am from a small town of around 2000 called Williamsport, Maryland.

2. How long have you lived in Tallahassee?

Justin: I have lived in Tallahassee since August of 2010.

3. Do you have any mentors in your professional life?

Justin: While I do not have one particular mentor that I meet with regularly, I have been influenced by a wide range of individuals that I look up to professionally throughout my life.

4. What do you hope to bring to the SD&T Team?

Justin: I hope to bring organization, reliability, and assistance with a splash of humor and quirkiness to the SD&T team!

5. What’s your favorite food?

Justin: This is a tough one, as the thing I enjoy the most is eating. While I am a big fan of Southern, Mexican/Tex-Mex, and Asian cuisine, I would have to say my all-time favorite dish was Tacospeak’s CBLT Tack (R.I.P.)

6. What’s your favorite movie?

Justin: I have a long-standing notion of not ranking movies. Instead I categorize them into rewatchable or not. Do to this, I cannot ever select just one without doing a disservice to many other films.  Most movies are one and done, however there are a couple that I will watch whenever they are on a cable network or when in the mood for a good piece of cinema.

7. Do you have any hidden talents or hobbies?

Justin: No hidden talents, but I do enjoy participating in any sports, physical activities, or outdoor pursuits.

8. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Justin: When I was a kid, I wanted to become a professional BMX rider, as I was always found out riding my bike.

9. What’s your favorite holiday?

Justin: My favorite holiday is the 4th of July.

10. Which historical figure would you most like to meet?

Justin: I think I would like to meet Mahatma Gandhi, as a conversation with him would be so intriguing.
