What’s your favorite part about working at Iron Horse?
It’s cliché, but the people who work here are all super rad. I consider many to be my friends, and would happily hang even if we didn’t work together. I also really really appreciate not working late nights or weekends, it’s been great to be able to balance work with family.
What do you bring into every client relationship?
I try to keep our clients happy and comfortable, want them to feel like we’re working together rather than just us working for them.
What’s your favorite new marketing trend?
I’m a fan of targeted marketing. I’m all for the creepy cookies following me everywhere, I don’t need to see ads for stuff I don’t care about.
Who is the most influential person to you?
Gotta be my mom, she’s everything. Runner-up: Jay Z.
What causes do you care about?
The family loves animals as much as we love music. We donate our time to the Humane Society.
