As Ontarians navigate the effects of COVID-19, it’s important for everyone to make an effort to keep in touch with friends and loved ones as best that they can. We are currently reaching out to Oatley Vigmond’s lawyers, accident benefits specialists, and hard-working staff through a recurring “Checking In With _________” Q&A segment hosted on the firm’s website.
Today’s check-in is with Oatley Vigmond Accident Benefits Specialist Steven Smyth.
How his life changed due to COVID:
“Generally my life has remained fairly typical, aside from the obvious closures and my kids coming home from University earlier than expected. My family all fall under the umbrella of “Essential Services” so our daily routines of work haven’t changed much.
What he misses the most in life:
“Randomly and spontaneously hanging with friends and family and going to our favorite restaurants and local pubs.”
What meeting with clients has been like during a pandemic:
“Everyone, surprisingly enough, has adjusted quickly to a virtual world of connectivity, but you can’t replace the “human touch” in meeting people personally and I do look forward to that again.”
The best television show he’s been watching recently:
“Hands down: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel! I enjoy period television and this one doesn’t disappoint. Then there’s the BBC espionage mini-series, “ The Capture”, currently on Amazon Prime.”
What he has learned from the past few months:
“Washing your hands so often requires a disciplined hand lotion routine, and perhaps I can make joggers and sneakers with a blazer a new fashion statement back in the office.”
The first place he will go when quarantine restrictions are lifted:
“Donaleigh’s Irish Public House. Family and friends welcome.”
