How did you get started with Social Media Marketing?
I moved to Atlanta straight after grad school with the goal of becoming a journalist, but I’ve always been pretty social media savvy and wound up at a social media marketing agency which I found to be a great use of my communications degrees. I’ve stuck with the agency lifestyle ever since.
What do you love about working for Thrive so far?
For a remote office, Thrive has a great company culture! I love that I feel like my superiors really care.
When you’re not at work, how do you spend your time?
I’m a painter on the side. I also write poetry.
If you could turn anything into an Olympic sport, what would you have a good chance of winning a gold medal for?
Drawing on winged eyeliner in under 60 seconds.
What would be your karaoke go-to song and what setting would we likely find you singing it in?
I’m not a big karaoke person, but I do take pride in knowing every word to Billy Joe’s “We Didn’t Start The Fire”. I’d likely be found at my favorite bar, Mary’s, in East Atlanta Village!
If you could be any character from any book or movie, who would you be?
Josie from Josie and the Pussycats. I was Josie for Halloween every year from ages 6-10.
Where did you grow up and what is special about that place?
I’m originally from the Jersey Shore (yes, where the infamous show was filmed). I’m a firm believer my hometown has the best pizza in the world.
If you were in a room with three billionaires, what would you ask them and why?
Do you think capitalism is ethical or sustainable?
If you could invite three people to dinner (dead or alive), who would be at the table and why?
Freddie Mercury, David Bowie, and John Waters. I think all three of them inspire my outlook towards life. I have a rule when I’m shopping called “The Bowie” rule. If David Bowie wouldn’t wear it, I won’t buy it!
