What do you do for CLEVER? I am a Project Manager on the Client Services team at CLEVER. I execute really amazing programs and work directly with our clients to ensure that programs not only meet—but exceed—their expectations!
How long have you been with CLEVER? 9 months—time flies!
How did you get into your current position? Facebook! Stefania posted about new opportunities at CLEVER—I was curious and clicked through. The more I learned about the agency, the more I knew I had to be a part of it!
What do you want to be when you grow up? I want to buy a farm and rescue dogs/animals from shelters—professional animal lover?
Describe yourself in any three emojis.
What is your Alma Mater? CSU, Long Beach
We have the benefit of working from home—where is your favorite place to work remotely? My home office, but on the days where I manage to get out—I love checking out new coffee shop workspaces.
What are your favorite social channels and/or influencers? I’d say Instagram—I mostly only share pictures of my dog, Waffles. He’s got plans to launch his own IG account this year ;).
What is one food you just cannot live without? Just one? If I had to choose I’d say pizza…and tacos :).
We believe in a good work/life balance—how do you spend your time when you’re not working? I like to stay active—big on hiking and I live in the perfect area for that! When I can’t get outdoors, I like to mix up my workouts switching between barre, spin and kettlebell classes.
Any other fun facts? I make a really good chili (a recipe I’ve perfected over the last year). I also really enjoy baking—it’s like therapy for me. I ran the Nike women’s half marathon a few years back and fundraised money for LLS—one of my favorite accomplishments because I never thought I could do it!
