What I do:
I assist with a variety of marcom projects, measurement and media relations for key agency accounts.
My self-proclaimed title:
Country-life, Cheeseburger and Crafting Connoisseur.
My AKHIA color is Purple and it fits my style because:
I’m generally calm and collected personality (keyword: generally ☺). I’m the type of person who likes to engage in deeper conversation and really take the time to get to know someone, but don’t expect me to ever skip out on a chance to throw in one of my sarcastic comments.
Me in work mode in one word:
What are clients surprised to find out about you?
Everyone I meet, client or not, seems to be surprised when I tell them that my work history includes several years of work on a veggie farm. I frequently get the “You don’t look like a farm-girl” response, which always makes me chuckle – if only they could have seen me in my tractor-driving glory days. But in all seriousness, I have to say, that job greatly contributed to my work ethic and was an excellent example of success through constant team effort.
What do you do in your spare time and how does that affect what you do and how you work?
One hobby that has been a prominent part of my life, something that has consumed hours and hours of my spare time as far back as I can remember is writing. I truly feel that is the reason why I ended up in the field I am in today – so it really has affected my work in every way imaginable.
One thing that inspires me is:
This might get a little bit sappy, but above anything, I truly am inspired by my family. I have two of the most hard-working and loving parents a person could ask for. Seeing their tireless efforts to always work harder and persevere even when the going gets tough, has, and continues to, inspire me to be a better person every day, and push through even when I feel overwhelmed and defeated.
