Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I was born in Hawaii, but I have primarily lived in Washington state. I love living in the PNW, and I try to take advantage of any good weather that comes my way. Whether it is hiking, running, swimming, gardening or biking, I always enjoy spending time outside. I use the inspiration I get from the outdoors to create art. This year I built and painted a little library and my own cornhole boards!
What do you do at Fuel, and what is the most valuable resource you provide to our members?
I am an account manager at Fuel for Oregon and Alaska. I recently moved into this role and was previously working as an account coordinator for members in the western territories. The most valuable resource I provide to members is to stay on top of details for them. Whether that is creating a marketing plan, reaching out to media sources or keeping track of deadlines, I am here to help take a load off their plates!
What does a typical workday look like for you?
I always start my day with a cup of coffee in-hand as I go through emails and check my calendar for upcoming meetings. Then, I’ll set reminders for important tasks and follow up with my members. For current projects, I reach out to different departments to ensure that things are on track or collaborate on any problems that come up. Usually, I have a meeting or two each day where I like to prep questions or an agenda beforehand.
What is your professional background?
Education-wise, I received my bachelor’s in business administration with a concentration in marketing at Western Washington University. I have had an interest in marketing for a long time and knew that is where I wanted to take my career path. Most of my experience comes from working in a business-to-business (B2B) setting, where I am accustomed to the challenges and opportunities that business leaders face day-to-day.
Before working at Fuel, I led marketing efforts at an IT-managed service provider and aided in inside sales. After working at a small business, I made the decision that I wanted to be a part of a larger working environment. I was able to find Fuel and am very happy to be able to work with such a talented team!
What do you like to do in your free time? Do you have a fun fact about yourself you’d like to share?
In my free time, I like to try new restaurants, tend to my houseplants and go camping. I usually try to visit and camp at a national park each summer; this year, it is Mt. Rainier.
A fun fact about myself is that I have never broken a bone!
