Tell us a little more about your job.

Each day is very different based on the projects I’m working on, but generally I oversee each aspect of marketing including maintaining the website, overseeing our digital advertising needs, coordinating/developing print marketing materials, supporting our sales team, and analyzing program results.

What has been your fondest memory?

My fondest memory was spending an afternoon with one of our driver’s as he fueled his route. This experience was a huge help in understanding the delivery operations up close and personal.

What are a few career lessons that you’ve learned so far?

Be flexible and ready to pivot. Things can change quickly so be ready to make the most of the next opportunity in each project. Never stop learning. There is always room for growth and improvement. Look for success in small wins. Use those small wins as inspiration towards bigger goals. Lastly, don’t be afraid to fail – failing is simply a learning opportunity.

Do you have a motto or personal mantra that you live by?

Be as resilient as a flamingo. Flamingos can sleep in ponds that freeze around their legs at night, drink boiling water, and survive conditions that expose them to arsenic and poisonous gases. Source: https://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/23/science/23angier.html
