How’d you get to where you are today, working at 435 Digital?

I was invited to connect on LinkedIn through someone in Business Development while at a previous job, and I was a little curious. Following that, a former Patch employee gave my name to a Tribune recruiter while interviewing for a different department, and I am very thankful that she thought of me!

What is your favorite YouTube video?

The flash mob of Black Eyed Peas – I Gotta Feeling Live with Oprah in Chicago. I still can’t believe that this happened and how many people participated!

Who is your favorite person to follow on Twitter and why?

I like to follow @RevRunWisdom. Sounds strange, I know! But he always tweets really cool quotes and highly motivational insights. He is a genuinely good guy and an amazing role model.

What is your favorite thing about Chicago?

I love the fact that all of my family is within a 50 mile radius and we can get together easily. I also really like Navy Pier and Shed Aquarium.

What do you love about your role as a Digital Sales Representative at 435 Digital?

I love the fact that I feel completely spoiled with technology, collateral and quick, accurate tools to SELL! I really get satisfaction out of helping people and getting referrals. Time is money, and now I will be able double my opportunities.
