Women’s History Month: Get to know Baylee

Flying Cork employee Baylee Zimmerman

In honor of March being National Women’s History Month, Flying Cork is introducing you to our leading ladies. First up to bat is one of our marketing coordinators – Baylee.

Baylee originally hails from Kutztown, Pennsylvania, and just recently graduated from Point Park University with a degree in Sports, Arts and Entertainment Management.

We had Baylee answer a few questions, one that you already saw on our Facebook page (and if you didn’t, click here for the post).

Q: What’s the most valuable part of your day? 

A: The most valuable part of my day is usually early in the morning, as that is when I’m most productive.

Q: How have you developed professionally since you started working with Flying Cork? 

A: Professionally I have developed tremendously in my year with Flying Cork. I started off as an intern during my senior year of college and worked my way into a full-time position. During that year I have gained skills in e-commerce services, web development, and day to day communications with clients.

Q: What advice would you give yourself a year ago?

A: It’s okay to not have it all figured out.

Q: If Hollywood was making a movie about your life, what would the title be, and what actress would you pick to play you?

A: It would be a documentary titled “Do You Want To See a Picture of My Cat?” and everyone would just play themselves – including the cats.

Q: What’s one thing no one knows about you, but you’re going to tell us anyway? 

A: I square danced for six years of my life.

Q: What has been one of the best moments of your life so far? 

A: Definitely moving to Pittsburgh. I grew up in a small town and the convenience factor of being surrounded by having things to do has been my favorite part [of the move].

Q: What female professional has made the most impact on your career and why? 

A: Ashley Dobransky, the assistant to the dean of the Rowland School of Business at Point Park University. Ashley mentored me all through college and still makes an impact on me to this day. During my senior year, she guided me through weighing out my options of where I wanted to be and what I wanted to do upon graduation. All throughout college, she helped shape me into the business professional that I am today.
