What do you like about working as a social marketer? I love waking up and coming to work knowing that every day will be different than the previous day. Social marketing is the cornerstone of connectivity and communication within the ever-changing and dynamic digital marketing age—I am excited, challenged and proud to be a part of this new frontier!
The question I get asked most often about my job is: So, you just play on Facebook and Twitter all day?
My favorite part about working at matchstick is: the camaraderie! While everyone at matchstick is hardworking, we’re never too busy to take a moment to crack jokes with each other or talk about what’s happening in each other’s lives. We are a matchstick family, which makes it that much easier to come to work each morning.
My favorite Charleston weekend activity is: going to Sullivan’s Island for a beach day, followed by a nice cold drink at either Hometeam or Poe’s.
Favorite movie quote: “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get.” – Forrest Gump
If I could have any pet in the world, I would have: I don’t like animals. My fiancé is pushing for a dog, however. Something tells me I’ll have to yield!
My work philosophy: “Find a job you love and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.”
