How Long have you been with the Company: 6 years
What’s the most important market trend you see today? Social Media is quickly becoming the most effective way to market.
What has been one of your proudest moments in your career? Becoming the Marketing Director. I started as the Receptionist 6 years ago and worked my way up. It was a difficult road but I’m very proud of how far I’ve come.
When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time? I like to read books on my kindle app.
What is something you learned in the last week? The difference between a Domain Host and a Website Host, oh, and how important a good website server is.
What music is in your favorite playlist right now? A mixture of different pop songs, country songs and movie soundtracks. The last song I was listening to was Carley Rae Jepsen’s “Cut to the Feeling”, before that it was “Rewrite the Stars” from the Greatest Showman. Oh and lately I’ve really enjoyed “One that got away” by Michael Ray. I never used to be big on Country but I’ve been converting a little bit at a time.
If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do? Probably have a panic attack. But after that and doing the traditional paying off bills and buying a new car, I would plan an amazing vacation. I’ve always wanted to travel and see everything, first stop Disney World.
If you could pick 1 superpower, what would it be? Be able to move things with my mind. It would make cleaning, cooking and working so much easier. I could sweep and dust at the same time.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Professionally I’m set so hopefully doing what I’m doing now with the same amazing people. Personally, maybe married with a few kids.
Tell us something that might surprise us about you? I’m a big fan of Chess. It’s one of my favorite games I occasionally play in online tournaments.
Tell us what or who inspires you? When I need creative inspiration I like music mixed with nature, basically taking a walk and listening to favorite songs. And Queen Elizabeth inspires me, I’ve read books about her and I’ve seen the Crown, I’m just amazed by a woman who had to deal with so much, so young and she’s never faltered.
What is one of your favorite quotes? “We can complain because rose bushes have thorns or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.” – Abraham Lincoln
