Employee Name: Leah Yorston
Hometown: Columbia, SC
My favorite social network is: Pinterest
What do you like about working as a social marketer? I love the instant gratification of watching a brand’s community grow at my fingertips. Social marketing is a fun, ever evolving environment where trends and strategies are changing every day!
The question I get asked most often about my job is: Isn’t Twitter just for selfies and #Beliebers?
My favorite part about working at matchstick is: The collaborative environment that matchstick has created is so great to work in. It truly feels like all ideas are welcome, sharing is encouraged, and we all tend to have a good laugh.
My favorite Charleston weekend activity is: Wining and dining. Whether it’s downtown, at the beach, or somewhere in between, I can’t resist a good bar with great food.
Favorite movie quote: “Check out the big brain on Brad” – Samuel L Jackson, PulpFiction – or any line of his from that movie, really.
If I could have any pet in the world, I would have: While my hands are full with Olive the cat and Paul the iguana, I would love to have a puppy to snuggle on. Who also gets into shenanigans with the cat and the lizard. Or one of those munchkin cats with the short legs. They are hilarious.
My work philosophy: Take ownership in everything you do. If you are confident, while maintaining an open mind, good things will come!
