Q: How did you come to Digital Storyteller?
A: Caroline LoPresti was a previous coworker, classmate, and long time friend of mine that knew it was my ultimate goal to get into the marketing industry. I was so sad to see her leave our previous company but the stars aligned when she reached out to tell me that Digital Storyteller was looking to hire another new content specialist! She asked if I would be interested in applying and a hop, skip, and jump later, here I am! I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this incredible team!
Q: What’s one thing most people don’t know about your education or upbringing?
A: I initially developed my passion for marketing taking an International Marketing course while studying abroad. I participated in Semester at Sea and traveled to various countries while living aboard a ship with over 750 students from various universities across the world. My International Marketing professor was an inspiration to me and sparked new interests and questions in each country and culture that we visited. When I returned back to the University of San Diego to complete my undergraduate degree, I knew that a marketing emphasis was a necessary addition to my studies.

Q: If you were to look back from the age of 80 and tell yourself anything, what would it be?
A: There’s no point in consistently worrying about everything. What will happen will happen regardless. So breathe, look on the bright side, have some laughs, fall in love, accept what you can’t change, and carry on. To actually live is courageous. Most people simply exist.
