DM: How long have you been working with Dig and how did you end up on our team?
ME: I started with the company 10 months ago on the 16th, man I can’t believe it’s almost been a year. I guess time flies when you’re working all the time… and having fun of course!! Haha! I came from the nonprofit world so this has been a big change, but my education is from UBC in Markting and Finance so really this is a great place for me to be right now!
DM: What exactly do you do for the company??
ME: Well I guess that depends on the day… It varies A LOT. I will go with Marketing. Really I do a range of things varying from establishing how to change layouts on our landing pages to help increase conversion rates so our clients get more leads, to creating newsletters so our clients are aware of everything we are doing to continually add value to them and our company as a whole. If you catch me on a Friday afternoon though, my hands are usually tied kicking all the boys butts in ping pong!!
DM: What is your most embarrassing moment since being in this industry??
ME: My first week Mike asked me to edit a press release. Being completely unfamiliar with the language and the industry in general I was SUPER nervous. But I was VERY confident when pointing out 2 spelling mistakes I had come across, Adit and Assay. I learnt pretty quickly that those were not spelling mistakes, but it was definitely the most embarrassing and humbling moment since I’ve started!
DM: Although you’re not from Vancouver, you’ve pretty much made this your home now. So what is your favorite thing to do in Vancouver?
ME: Well this is definitely a season depending question. Winter I would have to say getting out of the city/rain and go skiing in Whistler or surfing in Tofino. In the summer I would either head to the North Shore for some downhill mountain biking or hit the seawall on my cruiser bike!
