When did you start at Thrive? March of 2018
What are some of the things you love about being a Thriver?
I love the fact that I can do my job with great confidence. I know that if a client has high expectations that we can handle it without a problem. Thrive has some talented specialists who are constantly learning and growing their knowledge of the digital industry and it makes my job easier. Plus, I also love how everyone here at Thrives like to express themselves with gifs! Because who doesn’t like gifs??
What was your favorite or best Halloween costume as a kid?
Probably when I dressed up as the Red Power Ranger. There were a few other kids who dressed up as Power Rangers that year as well, so needless to say, recess was awesome that day.
You just won an all-expenses-paid 2-week vacation to anywhere you want to go. Where are you going and why?
I love the mountains, so probably somewhere with good hiking and beautiful scenery. Somewhere near a lake would be nice, so we could have fun on the water as well. Throw some firewood in a campfire and a nice log cabin and it sounds like a great time to me! So when can I be expecting the check for this trip? 🙂
What’s your favorite guilty pleasure fast food?
Probably Whataburger or Panda Express. And only because I cannot contain myself from overeating. I always get way to much food and then feel miserable afterwards. I know when I should stop eating but its so good that I don’t want to.
If you were an Olympic athlete, what sport would you compete in?
I think bobsledding would be fun, but I feel that I would get bored with it after a few days. To be honest, I think something with a snowboard would really fun to compete in. Half pipes, downhill, freestyle. They all sound fun to me.
If you could pick a TV show to be your life, what show would it be? Why?
Well I’m definitely not going with The Walking Dead. lol Unfortunately I don’t watch much TV these days, but I guess something like a sitcom would be funny, or a documentary! (like The Office, or Parks & Rec). I like to think my life is pretty entertaining, and I feel that others would enjoy it as well.
