Q: What’s the most valuable part of your day?
A: Going to spin class/yoga at night to unwind.
Q: How have you developed professionally since you started working with Flying Cork?
A: This is my second job out of college, and I wasn’t familiar with agencies prior to working with Flying Cork. Previously, I was a Marketing Consultant at a SaaS (Software as a Service) company. I wore many hats, as I needed to be experienced with email, social media, website building, SEO, and other types of marketing. I worked with dozens of small business owners to improve their marketing. With Flying Cork, I have been able to grow my knowledge of email marketing tremendously since that’s my primary focus. I feel like I’ve gained great experience in a professional-level working with the clients we have, and I have a more personal relationship with them.
Q: Bagels or Donuts?
A: Bagels! I could eat smoked salmon on a bagel with cream cheese every day and never get sick of it.
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: Title: “Just Add Coffee”. The actress would definitely be Anna Kendrick.
Q: What advice would you give yourself a year ago?
A: Stop apologizing over things that you don’t need to apologize for. Also, whatever problems you’re going through right now, you’ll forget about this time next year.
Q: One thing no one knows about you, but you’re going to tell us anyway?
A: I like to impersonate singers/artists voices such as Norah Jones, Britney Spears, Fetty Wap, etc. I’ll never do that in public, don’t ask :)
Q: You’re trapped in a train with 3 people for one month, who do you pick?
A: Going the celebrity route here….. Melissa McCarthy because she’s hilarious, Ariana Grande because I feel like we’d be good friends, and Morgan Freeman so he can narrate everything.
Q: What has been one of the best moments of your life, so far?
A: Getting married! I watch our wedding video several times a month to relive it.
Q: What female professional has made the most impact on your career and why?
A: My mom. She always gives the best professional advice, and she was very supportive of me taking a chance and moving to Pittsburgh for a career in Marketing.
