10 Questions with Amy Pineiro

Amy Pineiro

  1. What is your favorite thing about your job?

    My favorite thing is getting to work with all the different departments around the organization. Previously, in an IT role, you’d get to work with only a few departments depending on your assignment. Being the Epic Training Manager, I am casually involved with all the depts -- everyone that will eventually use Epic. It’s been great getting to learn about the clinical department, the business departments, the different managers and staff and seeing how they all work together.

  2. What are you putting off at the moment?

    Unfortunately, I’m not putting anything off. I probably should be. My husband and I bought a house during the quarantine and I’m now packing with my husband and four kids and a dog. I’m putting off painting! I’d also love to read a book. 

  3. What are you most excited about?

    I think I’m most excited about this house purchase. It’s a big deal. It’s my first house. 

  4. What is the most important thing to you?

    Especially in quarantine, we’ve all kind of learned – two college students, two grade-school students – to make it work. Having them all at home at the same time, it could’ve been a disaster, but it’s all worked out. Taking care of them and making sure they have everything they need and are reasonably happy is important. We’re kind of a Brady Bunch. No one thing works for everyone. It’s like having a dog, cat, snake and a bunny. The most important thing was making sure as a family unit we’re all connected, but not killing each other. I had low expectations, but it all worked out! 

  5. If you didn’t live on the Cape, where would you live and why?

    When the kids are gone, where will we settle? Someplace warm. My mother lives in Florida and I love her house in Florida. We’ve also talked about living in Puerto Rico. My husband is originally from there. Love a little tropical weather. 

  6. Is there any trend you regret trying?

    Oh, so many…so many!!!! Moving we went thru some boxes with some pictures. The side pony with the big scrunchy and the permed bangs. Just the bangs… I thought I looked awesome. 

  7. What’s your favorite time of day?

    I feel like they all have value. I think in working from home, I’ve really found that because I don’t need to commute I can start work early, before all the meetings start and the kids are still asleep, I get a lot done. In the evening from 7 to 9 when the kids are asleep I can catch up on Netflix and have a conversation with my husband. I love the evening, the reconnecting time after dinner, when the kids are doing their own thing. 

  8. Name something that’s always in your car’s glove compartment.

    I always – this is ridiculous – I always have a pen. (And, of course, the tire gauge my stepdad gave me when I got my first car.) Sometimes it’s a pack of pens. People always take the pen and walk away with it. Sometimes you’re waiting for the bus and one of the kids says, “Oh you need to sign this…” 

  9. What makes you laugh the hardest?

    I love Jerry Seinfeld. Netflix is a great spot for some good comedy. In quarantine, we’re binging New Girl, we’ve been laughing every night. 

  10. If you could have another career, what would it be?

    I’m a little bit… crafty? If money was no object, I would love to paint or teach art. I crochet a little bit. Anyone who’s been to my office can see, I have a really deep “Art Bar” habit <laughs> – I’m giving a plug to the Cape Cod Art Bar in Mashpee. I spent the better part of year and a half going every week, every other week. I have a ton of paintings. I’d love to teach people how to paint hydrangeas and drink some wine.
