What are your main duties and responsibilities at Testive?
I help strategize and implement our inbound marketing initiatives including writing and editing this very blog you’re reading, creating parent resources for our website, and developing email and marketing campaigns to help get the word out about how awesome Testive is.
What’s your favorite part about working at Testive?
Working with a group of people who are “slightly” younger than I am is very refreshing.The entire team is passionate about helping our students succeed and work hard to make that happen. I’ve had plenty of jobs in corporate America working with people who were only there to collect a paycheck and it was very depressing. At Testive, everybody is here to make a difference and it’s very inspiring!
When you’re not working, what do you like to do?
I really enjoy hanging out with my family, doing CrossFit, cycling, watching TV, and reading.
What’s your favorite food?
Hmmmm. I’d have to go with Buffalo wings. I know they’re not the best thing for you, but they are just so good.
What’s your favorite movie and why?
I love movies, so that’s a really tough call. I loved Bridesmaids because it was hilarious, but I also like sappy movies like The Notebook. Guess it depends on what mood I’m in.
If you had to choose a song that best summarized your personality what would it be?
“I am Woman (hear me roar!).” Very empowering.
What quote do you try to live your life by?
“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.” ~ Dalai Lama
Are you a cat or a dog person?
Both. I have two cats and one dog.
Mac or PC?
If you had one piece of advice to give college-bound students, what would it be?
College isn’t just about furthering your education, it’s about building friendships, experiencing new things, and trying to get to the root of who you are—not who people want you to be.
It’s a time to stop relying on others to make decisions for you and to become an independent human being who has something to offer to the world. You may not know what that is when you start college, but chances are by the time you graduate it will be a little bit clearer.
Listen to your inner voice, it’s usually right.
