Graphic Designer, Gateway Ticketing Systems, Inc.
1. What do you like best about your job?
I love that every day is different. We attend and host many events throughout the year, and marketing and design are a little different for each as well. I’m also constantly learning new things, which I love because it expands the number of tools and resources that I have at my disposal to do my job better.
2. What are the biggest professional challenges you face and how does ClickDimensions help you address those challenges?
I’m very detail oriented. This trait has served me very well – for the most part – but when I was put in charge of managing our marketing lists with another email client, I quickly realized it was a huge time suck to manage all that data manually! Then came ClickDimensions and I was beyond excited at the prospect of my life not resolving around data and list cleanup. While our small but mighty marketing team is relatively new to ClickDimensions, I continue to get excited whenever I discover a new feature or something that we would have never been able to do in our previous solution. With more time in my schedule, thanks to ClickDimensions and its native integration to Dynamics, I’m looking forward to spending more time on my design projects.
3. What was your background before landing in your current role?
I consider myself very fortunate to have been offered a paid internship with Gateway Ticketing while I was finishing college, and then offered a full-time position once I graduated. So, working at Gateway has been my first and only full-time job – and I don’t see myself going anywhere else for a very long time.
4. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I’ve always loved art and pretty much always had my nose in a book whenever I had free time, so I’m pretty sure being an illustrator or book cover designer was on the list somewhere. I think being a graphic designer is pretty close to that. And I actually have illustrated a children’s book. I also really loved playing sports. Soccer was my favorite, so if I couldn’t be an artist, I wanted to be a soccer star.
5. If you woke up tomorrow as an animal, what animal would you choose to be and why?
I think being a dog would be awesome. Although I should specifically say a dog living in a nice cozy house with a loving family – I know all dogs aren’t so lucky. As I’m writing this, my dog is laying on the couch sleeping with his head on the pillow like a human. I’m well aware of how spoiled he is, but he’s as much a part of our family as any human would be. Plus, I love naps, laying out in the sun and going for walks, so I think waking up as a dog would be quite fitting for me!
