This past week, Orange County Plastic Surgery wished Katie Finaldi godspeed on the next leg of her career. Katie responded to an ad for a receptionist in our office in May of 2020, just as we were reopening from the COVID shutdown. Her CV was different from the ones that usually came across my desk when evaluating candidates. Let me give you a taste of what I read: Katie Finaldi grew up in Corona (of course, lived on a street called Finaldi Way, but that’s another story). She had spent the previous decade in Maryland. Katie earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Towson University, where she was on the Dean’s List and was the Founder and President of the American Choral Directors Association.
