How did you get started with SEO?
I began working as a Content Creation Specialist for a digital agency right out of college, where I learned about the benefits and impacts of SEO. Been working in it since!
What do you love about working for Thrive so far?
I love the willingness of the company to support their employees. Never have I worked with a company that cares so much about their workers.
When you’re not at work, how do you spend your time?
Running, reading, writing, and video games are my favorite things to do outside of work. Anything that lets me be creative or just zone out.
If you could turn anything into an Olympic sport, what would you have a good chance of winning a gold medal for?
If playing Super Smash Brothers for the Nintendo 64 was an Olympic sport, I believe I’d have a pretty good chance of winning a gold medal. Shout out to the nineties kids out there!
If you could be any character from any book or movie, who would you be?
Where did you grow up and what is special about that place?
I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia. I loved the cool things in the city, such as Phillips Area (Go Hawks!) and The Varsity.
If you were in a room with three billionaires, what would you ask them and why?
I would ask them, “What are you doing with your wealth to improve society?”
If you could invite three people to dinner (dead or alive), who would be at the table and why?
J.R.R. Tolkien – I’ve love to pick his brain on the concept of world-building and ask him for writing tips.
Stan Lee – Similar to Tolkien, I’d like to learn how this creator dreamed up characters and changed the comic book industry.
Amy Poehler – She’s a hilarious actress and I’d love to hang out with her and learn about the many projects she’s involved in.
