What are you most excited about doing within your role as Social Media Specialist?
I am very excited to be enhancing my social media skills by learning and exploring new platforms. I try to add a touch of creativity to whatever social media task I am involved in. It has been awesome meeting this new team, and getting to connect with more people. I am excited about our mutual future!
What five words best describe you?
Energetic, goofy, kind, passionate and creative.
What are you most proud of?
I am most proud of graduating from the University of Kentucky and taking that “jump” to moving 4 hours away from the comfort and security of home. I have grown as a person while being incredibly grateful for my UK experience.
Tell us about your past work experience.
I have had great experiences working with several different companies. Last year I was an intern for TOPS Magazine where I worked along-side team members assisting at photoshoots, uploading press releases and creating other projects. Working with The Toledo City Paper was another special opportunity. I was able to work directly with clients ensuring that their advertisements would be designed in the most creative way for the paper. I currently also collaborate with several local businesses!
Who/what inspires you?
I believe that I am most inspired by other artists in the Instagram community because we all share our new ideas and thoughts and learn from each other. The UK School of Art and Visual Studies (SAVS) brought me closer to a lot of young and talented creators who also inspire me!
What’s the best compliment you’ve ever received?
The best compliment that I have ever received is that I have a great “eye” for creativity and can always spice up something that might need a second look!
What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free time I love going to Cycle Bar at The Summit! I have made many new friends while working out in a safe environment. I also enjoy drawing on my iPad, trying new restaurants, (COVID-19 safely) and enjoying the vibrant social life in Lexington.
Early bird or night owl? Night owl
What’s your spirit animal and why? Giraffe because they are so tall and friendly!
If you could time travel, would you go back in time or to the future? What would you do? If I could time travel I would for sure go back in time so I could re-live a few family vacations where everyone is all together.
If there were suddenly 25 hours in a day, how would you spend your extra hour? I would spend my extra hour catching up on sleep or finishing a TV series!
