Director at Integra Marketing Agency - Sales & Marketing Company in Minnesota

Started : September 2020

Advice for someone new : Always know where you are going, how you are going to get there, and why you want to get there. Ask as many questions as you possibly can and remember that this business is meant to be simple so don't overcomplicate things.

Something interesting about yourself : Some of my favorite hobbies include wake surfing, volleyball, and hanging out with my friends of course. In the summer when I have free time, I am either on the lake, by the lake, or in the lake as I grew up surrounded by water 24/7. I also love to travel and try new things/have new experiences!!

Favorite thing about your position: What I love most about my role is that I was able to grow into it. I started with one thing, mastered it, and then took on more responsibilities. Along the way I have learned so many different things about both business and I, and have always gotten back what I have put in. Another thing that I love about this position is that I earned it. Nobody gave it to me. I started at the beginning just like everyone else in this business and worked my way to where I am now and that is something that I am very proud of.

Words to live by: "You are the greatest project you will ever work on"

Best advice you’ve received in business : "Change your goals or change your habits." You can't want it all yet not be willing to get your hands dirty or be uncomfortable. A lot of the time people have big goals but are only willing to do very little to accomplish those goals.

Your career goals in the next 1-2 years : I feel like my goals are always changing but I do know that I want to be running a successful, profitable business that is positively affecting the people in my business as they grow into their role - as well as continuing a great relationship with our retailers and clients so we can continue to grow as a company!!
