Why do you work for Standing Partnership?
I enjoy working at Standing Partnership because of its approach to client work. The team at Standing asks smart questions and finds innovative solutions to client problems. It's not just about calculating media impressions. I also enjoy the culture at Standing Partnership. Everyone here is collaborative, friendly and takes pride in the successes of other co-workers, so you truly feel part of a team.

What’s your favorite achievement at Standing Partnership?
Winning Standing Partnership's blog contest two months in a row was pretty darn exciting, especially considering they were the first two blog posts I ever wrote for Standing.

Why did you pick this industry?
My senior year of high school I decided to join my school's speech team, and I absolutely loved it! Once I got to college, I wanted to choose a major that would allow me to use my talents in public speaking and writing on a regular basis, so communication seemed like a natural fit. The rest is history!

What’s your favorite quote or lyric?
"Fall in love, stay in love and it will decide everything." Pedro Arupe, S.J.

What’s the strangest job you ever had?
My first summer job was at a shoe store, which is a little ironic because I wear a size 11 and actually have a hard time finding shoes that fit!

What’s your go-to song at karaoke?
"I Want You Back" by N'Sync
