Tell us about your journey. Why advertising and technology?
I was previously a Buyer for Macy’s Department stores and was ready for a career change. A friend suggested I apply for a managing position here. I did just that, and once on board I knew this was the perfect fit for me. My time here has been well rounded - I started in Quality Assurance, from there I moved into Traffic Product, then Client Support/ Training, and I’m now in Account management. In each of these areas, I gained different knowledge that has all contributed to my success here.
In what ways has working at Mediaocean challenged you and enabled you to grow?
The mere fact that the advertising ecosystem is always changing. I find myself constantly learning new things and expanding my knowledge base.
What’s your favorite employee perk at Mediaocean?
The summer events and onsite Happy Hours, where I get to socialize with coworkers.
Coffee or tea? Coffee
Cats or dogs? Dogs

What are your favorite websites that you can be found browsing during lunch?
Facebook – love keeping up with friends from the past.
NOLA.com – I am from New Orleans, and keeping up with what’s happening back home makes me feel like I am there.
If you were stranded out at sea and could only have 3 things, what would they be?
A great bottle of wine, a laptop with internet connection, and a parasol.

Hands down, “The Blacklist.”
If your life were made into a movie, who would play you and why?
That would be Robert Downy, Jr. I get stopped at least once a week by people who say he looks just like me :) He is a great actor, and can be funny and serious all at the same time – like me.
