In this team spotlight, get to know Nellie Washington, Sales Development Representative in APAC at Stackla. She details the one place she’d love to live for a year, shares some recent good reads, and reveals what sport she would play if she were in the Olympics.

Q: What are you most looking forward to as Stackla joins Nosto?

Nellie: I’m eager to help build and grow an innovative business alongside talented and like-minded people. I love to be part of the start-up journey and see the impact my work can have on a business, and I’m excited to continue that journey at Nosto. I also look forward to seeing the team grow and meet and work with wonderful people from all over the world, hopefully in person one of these days.

Q: You’re going sailing around the world, what’s the name of your boat and what are your top destinations?

Nellie: I spent 5 years living and working on boats so this question is right up my alley. I actually worked on a boat called BIG FISH and always thought that was the greatest name for a boat. Top destinations that I would love to visit (that I haven’t already) would be Maldives, Seychelles, Galapagos Islands, Raja Ampat in Indonesia, Ha Long Bay in Vietnam, and the Norwegian Fjords. 

Q: What sport would you compete in if you were in the Olympics?

Nellie: Probably swimming. I was a competitive swimmer in my teenage years and loved it. It’s also my favorite sport to spectate at the Olympics, probably because our Aussie swimmers are such a talented team. I am a water baby and love everything about being in the water whether it’s the pool or (preferably) the ocean! 

Q: What book or movie have you read or seen recently that you would recommend and why?

Nellie: I read A LOT of (mostly fiction) books—so feel free to hit me up for recommendations! One of the best books I read this year was a Japanese translation: Lonely Castle in the Mirror. I thought it was a really timely story that touched on mental and emotional wellbeing, with a magical, fantastical twist. For non-fiction, I also really enjoyed Empire of Pain, which looked into the history of the Sackler Family Dynasty and their role in the opioid epidemic.  

Q: If you could live anywhere in the world for a year, where would it be?

Nellie: I’ve spent seven of the last eight years of my life living abroad, mostly on a boat, then two years in the US. However, the one city I have always dreamed of spending a year living in is Paris. I still have hopes that this dream will come true. Baguettes, cheese, and wine all day every day in this beautiful city.
