Marla James

Account Executive

What I do:
I contribute creativity, unique perspectives and ideas to help our clients reach their goals.

My self -proclaimed title:
Professional “Everyday-Life” Planner—I literally plan every detail of my day, week and month, from meal prep and workouts to dog walks and house chores, to ensure my crazy busy days run as smoothly and efficiently as they possibly can.

My AKHIA color is Black and it fits my style because:
Black is timeless, classic and always in style.

I get social on:
Facebook and Pinterest.

What’s your career AHA! moment?
Becoming mature enough to accept criticism and use it to become a stronger, more confident, assertive person.

I personally live AKHIA’s mission statement by:
Always keeping an open mind and striving to find a resolution to difficult situations no matter how impossible the task may seem.

What are clients surprised to find out about you?
My husband and I love watching Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives” and try to visit at least one of Guy Fieri’s featured restaurants every time we visit a new city.

What is your greatest strength?
My devotion to my passions.

What keeps you up at night?
Worrying.

What do you do in your spare time and how does that affect what you do and how you work?
I love spending time with family, trying new things and exploring new places. I work hard at my job to support the things I love most in my life.

What advice would you give to the 10-year-old you?
Don’t be afraid to be different; being unique is what makes you so special. Treasure all the little things because as you grow you will learn that the small things turn out to be the most important.

I wish I knew how to:
Walk gracefully in heels.
