How long have you worked for Times-Union Media?
I started with Times-Union Media as an intern in 2013 and have continued to grow in my career here over the last four years. I was fortunate to move into an administrative role quickly after my internship, and not long after that I was promoted to a Real Estate Media Consultant position where I have truly been able to thrive.
Why did you choose Times-Union Media?
I chose Times-Union Media because the company, and specifically the department in which I’m a part of, is as much of a family as I could ever imagine. As an intern in a different department, I could hear laughter, buzz, and excitement from across the hall and I knew I wanted to work with those people one day. Turns out I was right because the camaraderie and supportive nature of my coworkers is invaluable to me now.
What drew you to the digital marketing industry?
Working in the digital marketing industry is fascinating for me as I am constantly challenged to stay up to date and educated on the latest tactics, trends and strategies. I’m thrilled that I have the ability to work in an industry that is constantly evolving and growing.
How are you set up for success at Times-Union Media?
As an organization, Times-Union Media is tireless in its efforts to provide the best solutions, services and customized campaigns to the customers we serve. Moreover, the consistent opportunity Times-Union Media offers to further educate myself in our copious marketing portfolio continues to fuel my passion for success.
What is your favorite social media platform, and why?
Maybe I’m just a picture addict, but Instagram is my favorite social media platform. I love seeing the world through different lenses and seeing how the world sees itself through its own lens. It’s a bit of a tricky art form to master, but I’m always excited to see how a business can transform an aspect of its brand with a creative image and a catchy caption.
What do you enjoy most about working at Times-Union Media?
This company does a great job of rewarding hard work and dedication, something that I have noticed and valued since day one. Not only have I been rewarded, but I have also been provided a great deal of opportunities for growth and promotion which have been vital to my success.
What is one fun fact most people don’t know about you?
Absolutely nothing. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve got plenty of fun facts and stories, but when you’re as outgoing and outspoken as I am most people tend to know them by now.
What is your favorite inspirational quote or motto?
“You must always have faith in people. And, most importantly, you must always have faith in yourself.” Elle Woods, “Legally Blonde”
