What is the best part about your job?

The best part about my job is keeping an eye on and adapting the latest marketing trends for our agency and our clients!

How would you describe your responsibilities in a tweet (yes…160 characters or less)?

Responsible for introducing new clients, discovering & analyzing their needs, and making sure they are beyond satisfied!

Why did you join Ad 2 Orlando?

I joined Ad 2 to surround myself with like minded people; young professionals who want to do more than the usual 9 to 5 in their careers. Everyone’s enthusiasm and curiosity for the industry is invigorating to say the least!

Most memorable Ad 2 moment?

My most memorable Ad 2 moment was helping with the Public Service committee’s video shoot for their selected non-profit, Tech Sassy Girlz. I was asked to help last minute and I didn’t contribute much, but the gratitude from the committee and the women in Tech Sassy Girlz made me so thankful to be a part of something much bigger.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?

I would love to have the ability to teleport. Fulfilling the Millennial stereotype, I’m a naturally impatient individual so I would love to cut down an 8 hour flight to Europe down to an instant!

If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?

I would be a house cat. They get a pretty bad rep, but I’m trying to understand how being taken care of AND getting to sleep all day is a bad thing? Plus there’s a 99.99% chance I could easily become internet famous.
