What drew you to pursue a career in digital marketing?
Digital marketing has always appealed to me because of the creativity. I love to come up with new ideas and to collaborate with others. Digital marketing is constantly changing so you are always coming up with new and creative ways to meet your client’s needs. I always wanted to be able to combine my creative side with my business side, so naturally I was drawn to Digital Marketing.
Favorite Disney song?
This is such a hard question because I am a huge Disney fan. But, I would have to choose Be Our Guest from Beauty and The Beast. This is because I love hosting my friends for dinner parties and planning events. A good soiree is right up my alley. I love bringing people together and I find that nothing does that better than food, especially in South Louisiana. From cooking to hosting, I’m all about it.
What appealed to you the most when applying to Gatorworks?
When applying for jobs I was looking for somewhere that I could grow professionally as well as personally. Gatorworks appealed to me because of the culture. I wanted to work somewhere that I could become involved and take pride in my work. I could tell even in my first interview that the people here have a true passion for what they do. Some people say “do what you love and it won’t feel like work” and that’s how I want to feel about work. I’m very excited to be working with an agency where I can turn my passion into a career.
If you were to go see a dinner show which would you pick and why?
- Medieval Times
- Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede
- Murder Mystery Dinner Theater
As someone who is a big fan of mystery books, I would choose the murder mystery dinner theater. I’ve been to a few and they are always so intriguing. I always loved a good mystery and they keep you on your toes until the end. Trying to figure out “who-dun-it” and then seeing if you are right always makes dinner interesting.
What is your favorite part of the digital marketing process and why?
My favorite part of the digital marketing process is the content creation stage because you can really tap into your creativity and create something new and fun. I love that what you create has such a large audience and you can really get your brand out there. I also like how the process has structure but at same time you can always be as creative as you want with it.
What character do you always choose in Mario Kart?
Whenever I play Mario Kart I usually choose Toad. He’s very lightweight so I am able to be swift and hopefully win (unless i’m playing on rainbow road). I’m not the best at the game but I always have so much fun playing it with my friends because we get so competitive.
If you could pick any fictional character to get brunch with, who would it be?
I would probably choose Serena van der Woodsen from Gossip Girl. I would want to ask her about her personal style and how she keeps her hair so #flawless. She always has such an effortless sense of style and I really respect that.
