What was your path to the company?
I graduated from the University of Arizona in 2018 with a degree in Psychology, Marketing, and Communication. After moving back home to Virginia Beach, I wanted to pursue marketing. I took an internship with the marketing department here last fall. I loved the company so much that when I heard a relevant position had opened in the spring, I made sure to tell them I was interested. I started on the first of April and have been loving it ever since!
What are your primary roles in the company?
I organize events to get our location teams involved with their local communities. I also plan for social media updates, compose blog articles, and supply our office dog with too many treats.
What are you looking forward to most?
I am looking forward to getting the teams engaged with their communities and forming long-lasting relationships with local area organizations.
What do you enjoy about marketing?
I love the marketing field because it really is the driving force of what we think and believe. Everything, from the way we celebrate marriages to the way we eat at restaurants, has been shaped by marketing master minds centuries before us. Online marketing is the way we reach the people of today and the people of tomorrow. In this way, I love putting my mark on the future.
Do you have any pets?
I have a 10-year-old golden retriever named Copper. We enjoy taking runs on the trails of First Landing State Park (and also taking long breaks). You can usually find us swimming at the Chesapeake Bay or trying new foods in the kitchen.
What is your favorite hobby?
My favorite hobby is to paint. It is so fun to communicate through color, regardless of if it turns out good or bad.
Do you have a favorite sports team?
Even though I do not keep up with them as often as I should, my alma mater, the Arizona Wildcats, will always be my favorite. Bear Down!
