The Attivo Spotlight: Charmaine Schaefer

It’s not every day that a superstar becomes available to join your team. But that’s exactly what happened when Charmaine Schaefer joined The Attivo Group team last July. With 20 years of experience working with Macola software, Charmaine’s list of certifications and achievements is quite impressive. She is very will known and very respected in the world of Macola Software. It should come as no surprise that she is just as accomplished in her personal life!

Not one to brag, it can take a little prying to get Charmaine to open up. But once she does, you’ll soon find out that she is a classically trained on the piano, flute (alto and bass), piccolo, clarinet and saxophone. Her musical talents have led her to participate in a number of musical groups including active participation in her church’s contemporary worship band and several community orchestras. She has also provided musical accompaniment for plays like Oklahoma, Funny Girl, Shenandoah, Annie, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, The Wizard of OZ, and many more.

Charmaine is also an accomplished cook, known to her husband as his ‘Home Chef’, due to her phenomenal food and dedication to being a proud ‘foodie’. Charmaine also holds the title of the ‘neighborhood cake lady’, baking a cake for every person’s birthday in her neighborhood, a clear indicator of her generous heart.

The parallels between Charmaine’s personal and professional life are obvious. Dedicating to perfecting her craft and always willing to go the extra mile are hallmarks of her personality. And that drive has earned her Exact Software’s ‘Above & Beyond Award’ three times – most recently in March of 2015. Charmaine isn’t just the person we all hope to hear on the other end of the phone if our software breaks down.Anyone would consider themselves lucky to know her outside of their professional lives as well.Her family, friends, clients, and co-workers have nothing but the best to say about her, and Attivo is lucky to have such a superstar performer like her on their team!
