Mainstream Living

Lynda McCalley

What brought you to Mainstream?

 I answered an ad in the Des Moines Register for an Office Manager position in the Des Moines office when it was located on East Douglas.  I had no idea what “Mainstream Living” was, but from the logo at that time, I thought it was a real estate agency. 

What is your favorite thing about work?

I enjoy the employees I interact with, (many are like family to me), and the variety of things I do in my job.  I make it my goal to “help” someone or do something to make someone’s life easier every day.

How do you spend time outside of work?

Getting some sort of exercise, i.e., walking with Joni or going to the AHS track and running with my husband, driving my 15 year old to & from gymnastics, women’s bible study, spending time with my dad, reading a good book, cooking, cleaning, going out for drinks and good conversation.

What is something employees may not know about you?

I am the head chef at Food at First in Ames once per month.

Favorite color: Blue

Favorite Food: Salmon and veggies or a good burger

Favorite Song: Bluegrass or listening to "Britches and Hose"
