As Gatorworks continues to grow, we needed more assistance dedicated to managing new projects and clients. With a great deal of local advertising and account management experience (plus a sweet and spunky attitude) Ally is ready to make her mark here at Gatorworks. We are excited to announce the newest addition to our account management team, Ally Balthazar!
Gatorworks Welcomes Ally Balthazar!
Tell us a bit about yourself. Where are you from? How do you spend your leisure time?
I am originally from Natchitoches, LA but I graduated from high school in Atlanta, LA. (Yes, that’s a thing!) I lived in Baton Rouge until 2004 while my mom was in vet school at LSU and then got to come to LSU myself in 2013. My leisure time is spent amongst my family and friends, riding horses, taking our dogs to the park, or working on any type of DIY craft throughout the seasons.
The best piece of professional advice you have ever received?
Most of the time it’s not the things that you say “yes” to, but the things that you say “no” to that will determine what type of person you will be. This has held true professionally as well as personally throughout many of my experiences in life, school, work.
What binge-worthy show have you watched recently and who is your favorite character?
Recently, I watched Friends from beginning to end and though I’ve seen the show for years, it was magical to watch it from start to finish. I will always love Ross!
What appeals to you most about Gatorworks?
The team! Brian and all the team members make this place a great company because they truly care about the quality of work they put out into the world. They always strive to create meaningful work while maintaining our company values and culture. It makes me proud to work with people who want the best for our clients while still having each others’ backs!
When people come to you for help, what do they usually want help with?
Surprisingly, people ask me for help with their animals and pets. This normally has a lot to do with the fact that my mom is a veterinarian and we have had all types of pets—everything from a peacock to a donkey. Ever since I was young I have always loved animals and helping those who can’t always help themselves.
What is your favorite aspect of account management?
My favorite aspect of account management would be helping clients be successful. Whether this is helping them make changes to their website, meeting their sales goals or coming up with fresh new ideas for their creative, I love being a part of something that can make a difference in someone’s life and business!
