Elizabeth Bombara is new to the team, and we’re happy to introduce her as our latest Employee Spotlight! Elizabeth joined Fort Pitt as a client relationship specialist and got her start in September. We discussed her role at the firm and some of her favorite hobbies outside of work. Check out the Q&A below:
- What are some of your responsibilities at Fort Pitt?
I’m responsible for supporting the advisors and assisting clients with a variety of transactions throughout the day. This gives me the opportunity to interact and build lasting relationships with our clients. The work is challenging and very rewarding.
- What do you enjoy most about your job?
I come from the finance side of the banking industry, so it’s a nice change to come into a smaller, more family type of environment. With the Fort Pitt structure, you have a great team of individuals who support you and can lend a hand if needed. I also enjoy that it’s never the same day twice – my ideal job combines the perfect mix of people and paper and I am finding that here.
- What hobbies do you enjoy outside of work?
I love to cook, read and spend time with family and friends. I am currently reading “A Walk in the Woods” by Bill Bryson. I try to alternate between fiction and non-fiction when choosing what to read. You will also occasionally find me on a Saturday or Sunday binge-watching a show on Netflix.
- Where is the best place you’ve traveled and why?
I have a son who lives in Colorado right now, and I love spending time there and exploring a lot of the smaller towns between the ranges. It’s a great place to re-charge the batteries and I find the trips there to be very uplifting. I personally try to go out to visit at least 2-3 times a year and I’m not a skier, so the time is spent hiking and doing any of the many choices of outdoor activities that are available for a great part of the year.
