Q: Please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I started my career in radio, television and corporate video production. Suddenly, the dot-com boom was happening and digital was a new career option. I quickly learned HTML and put my broadcast writing/producing skills to work in this new arena as a Web Content Specialist. Over time, I have held web jobs in content management, marketing campaign management, SEO copywriting, project management and website optimization. I recently spent 9 years with AT&T, hiring and coaching digital content and optimization teams for att.com support. I enjoy what I do and the industry is constantly evolving.
Q: Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
My journey has been easy at times and challenging at times. I lived in Detroit and did most of my work for automotive clients. Around 2006, in the early part of the big recession, work dried up for myself and many of my colleagues. Detroit was no longer a place to be hired. I moved to Atlanta and was back to work quickly. I have been fortunate to have experienced many interesting work engagements, world-class training, and the opportunity to work for extraordinary leaders who mentored me and showed me how I could be a leader, too.
Q: What is “success” or “successful” for you?
In order to be successful, not only should you meet your goals, but continually set the bar higher. Personally, I enjoy learning and evolving through online classes, books, and industry conferences. The world is going to keep changing (especially in Digital!) so it’s important to keep up.
