If you've ever had to call in to our Imaging Department you may have spoken with Heather Watson. She started with us back in September of 98 and other than one six month period she's been in the Imaging Department the entire time. We asked Heather if she had any tips for our Owner Operators on how to make sure that their paperwork gets processed properly. "Light," Heather says in her soft spoken way, "the more light the better, and not with a flash." Following up with that we ask about how long it takes to get paperwork. "The mobile app sends paperwork in batches once an hour. If an owner operator sends it right before the batch gets sent it may only be a few minutes, but if the owner operator sends it right after a batch is sent, it can take about an hour."

Greener Spaces

You may remember a few weeks ago when we spoke with Tom Pifer about the Mercer Campus. During that interview we talked with him about greener spaces. One of the spaces that Tom worked was a garden that he and Heather collaborated on. Tom brought over some old tool boxes filled with dirt, and set aside a giant reservoir for water. After that she was able to fill the re-purposed tool boxes with many different plants and vegetables.

Growing Results


So how are things going with the garden? Well Heather is currently growing banana peppers, blueberries, cherry tomatoes, tomatoes, watermelon, and even zucchinis, just to name a few. The banana peppers, cherry tomatoes, zucchinis, and cucumbers have already grown enough produce to be harvested once already. Heather also shared a little secret for getting the blueberries to grow. She adds a little mixture of water and vinegar to the soil around the blueberries.

So just remember if you call into our Imaging Department and get Heather on the phone. You may just want to ask her how the garden is doing.
