Q: What do you at MKTG and what’s a typical day/week like for you? (who do you interact with, what keeps you busy)

A: I’m on the People Ops team for the West Coast and there’s not much of a typical day/week! Some days I’m working with a Graphic Designer to create assets for a social event; or I’m working with the strategists on event strategy for our adopted non-profit org; or recruiting alongside of Patrick (my manager) and Sha’Ron; or talking L&D with Jenn; or coordinating baby goats visits or an office Easter egg hunt with our People Ops Trainee, Lisa (yes, we did that for real in SF!) We’re doing all the things to try and build a special culture at MKTG SF.

Q: Who inspires you personally and professionally and why?

A: I think my mom instilled the value of working hard in me. She is the most resilient person I know, and that makes me feel like I need the be the same for her.

Q: What excites you about your work?

A: When I see a problem, I get paired with an opportunity to design a solution and “fix” it. This can be the small, petty stuff like “we’ve got dishes in the sink” to the bigger, cool things like “how do we set a New Hire up for success” and “how do we start building a community within the DAN network?”

Q: What are you watching (TV, films, docs, reality, etc.), listening to (radio, podcasts, books, etc.) and reading (which blogs, sites, books, mags, etc.)

A: Watching: The Magicians, 13 Reasons Why, Terrace House, How to Get Away with Murder, Grey’s Anatomy, Arrested Development, the list goes on…; Listening (Podcasts): Oprah’s Super Soul Conversations, Hidden Brain, Criminal; Reading (Books): Designing Your Life by Dave Evans and Bill Burnett, The Rules Do Not Apply by Ariel Levy, The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur + a small stack of half-finished ones.

Q: Do you have a morning routine? If so, what is it?

A: I can be somewhat of a routine person, and mornings are important (because I’m not a morning person): I get out of bed around 7am, take my puppers out, feed him, do my business, have a glass of warm water with apple cider vinegar, and then I’m on my way for my commute with music or a podcast episode. Lastly, breakfast in the office- usually oatmeal or smoothie.

Q: BONUS QUESTION: Anything else you want to share? Do you have a special talent?Passion? Hobby?

A: Passion/ hobby… in trying to pet every dog I see!
