What are a few of your strengths and passions? How has working at Mediaocean enabled you to flex some of these muscles?
I feel passionate about working with clients and providing solutions that help their business. We have some really great product offerings and I love being able to offer those efficiencies. Best of all, this role lets me be creative and think outside of the box.
What do you enjoy most about working at Mediaocean?
I really love the people I work with – I feel incredibly fortunate to work with such intelligent, creative, and generous people. The people I work with inspire me and keep me moving forward- I’ve been here 17 years and I still feel like I learn something from every person I interact with.
What’s your favorite employee perk at Mediaocean?
When I can get there, I really love the yoga.
Cats or dogs?
Neither! I had a fish once and it was too much work.
Give 3 tips for someone looking to land a job like yours.
• A background in tech or relevant experience is going to be helpful no matter what
• Know your message and your audience
• Be curious – don’t be afraid of what you don’t know
If you were stranded out at sea and could only have 3 things, what would they be?
My cell phone (and service), sunblock, and if we’re on a boat, I want a paddle. If we’re on an island, I’d want chocolate.
What’s your favorite TV show?
“Mad Men.” I’m also really into “Shahs of Sunset” right now.
If your life were made into a movie, who would play you and why?
(I’m reaching for the stars…) Ideally, it would be J Lo, but I don’t think she would take that role. So, maybe Sandra Bullock?
