Years at Volume Nine: 5
What is the best part of working for V9?
Everyone who works for Volume Nine is spirited, hard-working, and creative. I’m never bored with the work, and feel challenged on a daily basis (in a good way!).
What excites you about the future of Digital Marketing?
It’s exciting to think that Digital Marketing is a relatively new field with endless possibilities. It’s not going away anytime soon, and it’s exciting to work in a field that’s growing every day. (I find job security to be a thrilling concept).
What is your favorite quote?
My favorite work related quote is an oldie but a goodie.
“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” – Confucius
Who is your favorite influencer to follow on social media?
If a sitcom was made about life at V9, who would play you, and why?
Kate Walsh. When Grey’s Anatomy was huge (I can’t believe that show is still on), people would tell me at least once a week that she and I looked exactly alike. Pretty sweet compliment!
What is your proudest moment as a marketing professional?
Argh, that’s tough! I think the little moments are what I enjoy most. For a lot of us, digital marketing is such a part of our daily life that it’s easy to forget that our skillset is highly valuable. It feels really good to help out clients with things that sometimes feel second nature, knowing that our insight is really going to make a difference.
Aside from V9, what has been your favorite job and why?
Technically this wasn’t a job – it was a volunteer program, but my 2 years in AmeriCorps *NCCC were 2 of the best years of my life.
AmeriCorps changed everything for me. It brought me to Colorado, then sent me around the country. It introduced me to lifelong friends I never would have met otherwise, exposed me to new ways of thinking, and set me on a path I never could have expected.
Tell us about your favorite guilty pleasure (or at least one you’re willing to admit).
I’m a proud member of Bachelor Nation. I am also obsessed with Family Feud.
