Director of Operations

What’s your average day like at Iconic Orange?

I wear many hats here at Iconic Orange, from being a problem solver, project manager, event specialist, swag queen to making sure the bills are paid and the lights are on.  My day is never typical working in a creative team environment.  That is why I love what I do.

What do you feel is different about working at Iconic versus your last position?

At Iconic Orange, we have a great group of people, we all have a voice, (and boy do we use it!)  We work hard and we have fun while doing it, couldn’t ask for anything better.

What do you really do at Iconic?

Feed the beast!  I make sure the vendors are tamed and the clients are happy.  Oh and keeping Keith happy as well.

What do you like about Inbound Marketing?

Just being a part of the evolution of inbound marketing is what I love.  Nowadays you have so many ways to connect with your audience, from direct mail, emails, blogging, social media, there’s something new every week.

Where are you from?

The south is my home, but I’m a coastal girl at heart.  I grew up in Tallahassee, Florida but moved to Atlanta, GA in my teens, and fell in love with the hustle and bustle of city life.

What makes Atlanta so appealing?

Atlanta has everything, what more could you possibly want?  Four to five hours to the beach, or the mountains.  You’re at most an hour or less to several local lakes, or rivers.  And come on, southerners are some of the nicest people you’ve ever met!

What do you do when you’re not at work?

I’m a mom of two growing boys, a husband and a dog so I stay busy with them.  Homework, boy scouts, keeping them fed and entertained, and making sure the lights are on as well, I don’t have much time for anything else.  Whenever my schedule and the weather allows you’ll find me at my favorite spot, floating on the lake.

What would your coworkers say about you?

I have no idea, not sure I want to know. LOL

Years from now, what will stick out most about 2015?

I hope I can remember anything from 2015!

It’s 5:30 pm – what’s your cocktail of choice?

I don’t drink a lot but when I do, it’s tequila.

Favorite Pandora station to groove to at work?

Dave Matthews band or Foo Fighters, I don’t have one favorite I like it all, country, pop, classic rock, etc.

What do you carry in your purse/man bag?

Money.

Favorite restaurant in the Atlanta area?

The one restaurant I can get my entire family to agree on is Three Dollar café, best wings in town.

What’s your secret guilty pleasure?

Anything on Bravo, yes, I’m one of those who loves the not so Real Housewives of…franchise.

Describe yourself in 3 to 5 words.

Mom, friend, hardworking, smart ass, pisces.

What’s one of life’s simple pleasures?

Snuggling and giggling in bed with my kids.

Give us a few words of wisdom.

Just be you.
