Why do you work for Standing Partnership?
It’s such a great team – and I love that our clients truly engage us as strategic think partners for their reputation, instead of using us as a vendor.

Why did you pick this industry?
Because I knew that no two days would ever be the same… and I would constantly be learning new things. I’ve been able to work with lots of clients in a variety of industries. I’ve worked on everything from diapers to water parks, corporate foundations and causes to education.

What is your favorite part of your job?
Writing… whether it’s messages or a speech or a website from scratch, I love digging in and finding a client’s voice and bringing that to life. It’s a great feeling of accomplishment.

What’s one thing people don’t know about you?
I can wiggle my ears… one at a time.

What’s your favorite quote or lyric?
“Whatever you are, be a good one.” Abraham Lincoln

What’s the strangest job you ever had?
The strangest and best was my first job out of college – I spent almost two years as a Hotdogger and drove the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile.

What’s the best book you’ve read in the last year?
I’ve been reading the Harry Potter series with my 8 year old daughter. It’s been so amazing to re-read my favorite series and see the characters through her eyes.
