As we hire new talents at Bridge, we typically ask a bunch of fun and personal questions that we send out to the entire team in an effort to break the ice, as many other companies do. We thought we could go a step further and also share these with you, our clients and partners, because we appreciate so much the relationships we have been building together over the years.
My name is Georgia Miller and I'm very excited to join the Bridge team. My job is two-fold as a member of Bridge's Client Services: acting as the day-to-day contact for my clients and their international employees, answering any platform or process-related queries, as well as preparing the cases themselves with our attorney partners. I moved to the U.S. in December 2019 and, as an immigrant myself, I hope to bring a lot of empathy and know-how of the U.S. immigration system to my clients.
- Where were you born? I was born in Manchester, UK. If you’re into sports, you will likely have heard of our two world-renowned rival football (or as my U.S. colleagues call it, “soccer”) teams - Manchester United F.C. and Manchester City F.C.! Personally, United all the way!
- When you were little, who was your favorite superhero? Jerry from Tom & Jerry, he always outsmarted that cat! I’m still very fond of that show. Such wit with such little verbal narrative.
- What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten? Chicken’s heart - delicious but never again because I scare easily. It had “slipped my parents mind” to inform me what I was eating, but it just goes to show what you miss if you don’t try.
- What is the favorite city you have visited outside the United States? Paris, always Paris. I’ve visited this city many times and it still feels magical to me. Like Rome, it’s so easy to navigate on foot and feels like you are walking through a treasure map, bouncing from one medieval church to one colossal monument.
- If you could visit any place in the world where would it be and why? Asia, specifically Mongolia (this obsession followed a binge of the Netflix show Marco Polo), or North Korea which I am weirdly obsessed with and read up on in my spare time. I adore Asian art and culture and will never stop learning about it.
- If you forget to plug your headphones in at work on Monday, what song are we most likely to hear? Bastille or Take That, two incredibly popular British bands that still makes me embarrassed to admit. James Blunt, The Kooks, The Beatles. If it’s British, you can bet I’m a fan.
- What is the most recent thing you completed on your bucket list? To move to another country. I’ve always wanted to dare to explore the world, and putting down roots in an entirely new and different continent to where I was born encourages me to keep exploring the world.
- What is your favorite sports team? Manchester United. After that, I’ll be honest, I don’t know much about sports. I would love to go to an NBA game or two though!
- What is your most used emoji?
- What is your favorite app on your phone? Spotify. For me, it’s all about music in order to decompress, to energize and to connect.
- If you had your own talk show, who would your first three guests be? Ellen DeGeneres, Monica Galetti and Alex Borstein. They are three well-informed, impressive and sassy women - all things I admire!
- What is the scariest thing you've ever done for fun? Relocated to America. It was for fun and for career opportunities. I really empathize with my clients and their international employees. Prior to Bridge, I worked in HR for 4 years and have personally lived through the green card process and can fully appreciate the all-encompassing emotions felt by all parties.
- What is your favorite TV show of all time? The Marvellous Mrs Maisel. Just the other day I was sitting open-mouthed wondering at the cinematography of the show, the costumes and the music. I’m going to rewatch it from series 1 - what else to do while living through COVID-19?!
- If you could eliminate one thing from your daily routine, what would it be? Any commute. I am naturally impatient and enjoy my personal space! However, my commute has improved immeasurably since escaping the Tube in London.
- Besides working at Bridge (of course!) what is your dream job? National Geographic photographer. I’m naturally very artistic and have always found nature wondrous. For my job to involve traveling though and photographing the wonders of the world? What could be better!
