Strange History with Work

I’ve worked at Thomson Reuters for over 10 years now which some people say makes me a Lifer, I say maybe. I see no reason to jump ship at this point in my life or career so there is a distinct possibility this is true.

That being the case, even prior to my current tenure I had a strange history with Lawyers Co-op which was eventually bought by WestGroup which eventually became Thomson West which is now Thomson Reuters. Unbeknownst to me, my mother worked at Lawyers Co-op before me as did my namesake who happens to be a woman.

My mother wanted to name me Zack but my father didn’t like it & so my mother decided to let my father pick the name. Around the time I was born my Mother was working with a woman named Randi B and my father grew fond of the name and thus… Randy.

When I began working at (then) Thomson West, my mother figured out that it was the old Lawyer’s Co-op and we figured out that some of her old coworkers still worked there. I’ll leave you with this picture of a woman named Joanne T holding me as a child but who still worked there when I started.
