😬😧🥴 Recently went outside my comfort zone…

Explaining to our traditional ad team who/what/why/how to TikTok.

This team ONLY works in the traditional space and didn't totally get Instagram even but they got there in the end! I was fine explaining it to them but doing so in front of the whole agency while on a stage was a little nervous-making.

Most fulfilling project I've worked on

Launching THE Josh Abbott as the new voice of Dairy Queen in Texas.

I got to strategize a campaign announcing his new sing-out for the jingle with a full social media kit that included Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok as well as directing the BTS video that the kit lead to. It doesn't hurt that in 2022, we won awards for the work either.

How I stand out

Mentors and develops teammates for their growthCollaborates effectively with teammatesMaintains effective work life balanceIntentional and strategic project planningConsistently hits goals and is a high performer

I believe that the success of our work starts with a united team. It's important to me that there are no stereotypical divides between different departments and that harmony in the workplace is prioritized. I think that a lot of times, that looks like difficult conversations, open minds, and leveled goal-building for both your professional and personal life.

My areas for growth

Makes decisions promptly, even with uncertaintyFosters high performance teamworkStays composed throughout conflict or difficult situations

Two of these goals are rooted in confidence building. I have struggled in the past with speaking up when I have a great idea and eloquently sharing my point of view when in conflict. If I can build my confidence up, I can break through into more areas of by field that I have yet to touch. As for fostering high-performance teamwork: Although I believe I work extremely effectively in team environments, I want to foster an increased passion in my peers so that we can produce higher-quality work.
