Meet Our RFMA Member, Carolyn Roberts

Posted By Heather Webb, RFMA, Monday, May 18, 2015

Carolyn Roberts
Exec. Director of Facilities, Construction, Design and Sustain.
Chipotle Mexican Grill

What year did you join RFMA?
In its inaugural year, 2005

Why did you join RFMA? I was a member of PRSM which was more focused on retail than specifically restaurants. As a restaurateur, I felt it was important that our group of restaurateur have an association that was more about our specialty.

What do you like most about RFMA?
I have been fortunate enough to know many people in the organization since the beginning. Not only are they extremely knowledgeable but they have all become long time friends. There is such a sense of collaboration about how to help others and seek out the best ways for doing things. Each year the conferences continue to offer more comprehensive information for my teams.

Which RFMA Resource do you utilize the most and why?
The RFMA Online calendar is the most useful to me as it allows me to easily keep track of what is going on and integrates easily with my calendar.

What would be the title of your autobiography? Make It Happen!

What is your guilty pleasure? Dark chocolate, cheese and a good glass of sangria

What is your ideal vacation?
Diving in the Maldives

Who is your favorite sports team? Denver Broncos

What was the last book you read? Paid to Think

Describe your best day. My best days would have been when I had my 4 daughters but my very best career related day would be the day I promoted my first Directors. I knew all the hard work was worth it. I cried like a baby because I was so incredibly proud of my team and realized that no title or amount of money mattered  as long as I was changing other’s lives in a positive way by being an inspiring leader.

If you weren’t in the Facilities Industry, what would you be doing? Probably Own a Restaurant as I love to cook and my daughter will graduate as a chef soon.

What chore do you absolutely hate doing? Picking up dog poop

What is one of your favorite quotes?
"It is our choices that show who we truly are far more than our abilities"-Albus Dumbledore

What is the most-played song on your iPod?
AC/DC Back in Black

Do you have a secret talent and if so, what is it? I have perceptual ESP occasionally. I see things happen before they actually do. It is very random and never know when it will happen.

If you could meet an iconic person from History, who would it be?
Steve Jobs
