What are a few of your strengths and passions? How has working at Mediaocean enabled you to flex some of these muscles?
My communication skills and outgoing personality. I love to meet new people and support them in their goals, and working at Mediaocean has allowed me to travel to different offices and get to know so many employees on a personal level. I’ve gotten the opportunity to work closely with Bill and see his vision and future of the company - which is very exciting!
In what ways has working at Mediaocean challenged you and enabled you to grow?
Mediaocean constantly challenges me to learn more, step outside my comfort zone, and take chances. I have gotten to work on our company events, run our facilities, lead our large NY office move, and work with so many people in different departments and offices. It’s helped me broaden my horizons and see things from different views. And then, of course, trying to manage Bill’s crazy schedule is always a challenge :)
What do you enjoy most about working at Mediaocean?
The people! I love surrounding myself with awesome people. I laugh every day at work. When I came back from maternity leave, I had tons of people ask me about Mason – even a few people I had never spoken to before – and they still ask. It feels like a family here and I love that.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years and what role does Mediaocean play in helping you get there?
I live for the moment with a little planning here and there. Mediaocean has allowed me to work on projects I never could have imagined, and I see myself growing with the company and continuing to work on various projects with various teams.
What’s your favorite employee perk at Mediaocean?
The music in the café… and in the bathroom! (Laughs.) It’s a moment of singing and dancing that I can’t always do at my desk.
Coffee or tea?
English breakfast tea with a little milk – the Australian way
Cats or dogs?
Dogs, of course!
