Q: Where are you from?
A: Milford, CT, born and raised. On the beach is where I spent most of my days lol.
Q: How did you choose this career path?
A: The opportunity fell in my lap, to be honest. I worked in childcare for 11 years prior to my current career path. My cousin is the CEO of an agency in New Haven. They happened to be hiring for an office manager position/internal social community manager and asked if I would like a career change. I jumped at the chance, interviewing with her entire team (Bryan included!) to see if I was the right fit for the team culture. An hour later, I walked out with a verbal offer. I started the following Monday, and it was only up from there! Eight years later, and I worked my way up from the office manager to the social media manager.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Being a psychology major, I find learning about the user persona extremely interesting. Who they are, why they become loyal, what makes them come back to buy. I also really enjoy seeing the work I've had a part in out in the real world.
Q: What is your favorite part of being a member of the ZGM team?
A: Newbie right here, but I would have to say my first day has been pretty stellar. The team is open, communicative, and very helpful—exactly the kind of people I want to work with.
Q: What is the strangest job you've ever had?
A: No one ever believed me when I said I was a florist when I was 16. It was an awesome job. Ever need a boutonniere or wristlet, I’ve got ya!

A: "This, too, shall pass."
