In our “Where we work” series, we ask Kin team members to share their home office and experience with remote work.
I’m Connie Cavallo, Project Manager with Kin. I’m originally from New York, and live and work out of my home office in Connecticut, USA.

My home office is a quiet corner of my house, and it gets really nice filtered light, so it is a calm place to be. We just purchased this house, and finding a home with a good potential office space was high on our list of must haves, because I don’t think I could ever go back to a regular office environment after working from home for a number of years.

My home office must-haves are a comfy chair, some kind of blanket or wrap because I’m always cold, and a big glass of something to drink because I’m always thirsty! A bigger desk is definitely on my wish list.
My favorite item in my office is my Star Wars Ruggable rug! I’m a huge Star Wars fan and this rug subtly adds fandom to my space.

I’ll leave you with a work from home tip that I try to follow: Make sure to set boundaries for yourself. Not having a commute to switch your brain from “work mode” to “home mode” can be tough to get used to, so it’s important to close your computer at the end of the day, and mentally “leave the office”.
