What do clients like best about working with you?
My clients have told me that I’m exceedingly competent and lively. I’ve always made it a priority to convey the feeling that they can trust my skills and knowledge with all tasks and strategies I execute. I do my part by learning each platform my clients utilize in-depth and being the source of truth for all questions to ease their minds. My clients appreciate my willingness to drop everything and make their lives easier and stress-free when it comes to their company’s marketing and public relations. Also, my clients know I genuinely enjoy my job and I make it a daily habit to have the right, positive attitude when working directly with them. Happiness has a multiplying effect and, when encouraged, can spread from you to your clients. I always keep in mind that people like to work with happy people!
Before I was a communication and PR studies major, I was distinguished as an interior design major.
What do you love about Proxy?
Our work speaks for itself. Nothing speaks as loud as continuously executing at a high level. It shows we have a well-established internal work process. It shows we can manage, appreciate, and prioritize every client efficiently. It shows that we have the brain power as a team to think through and effectively communicate our marketing strategies. And, it reveals that our creativity and uniqueness can powerfully build our client’s brand identity to its full potential. Our internal team keeps it real. We strive to be our authentic selves because when you’re authentic, you also have integrity.
What is one of your successes that you are most proud of and why?
I would have to say the chapter in my life I am most proud of is graduating from Texas State University within 3½ years with a Public Relations and Communications Bachelor’s Degree. I graduated with the honor of Magna Cum Laude being in the top 10% of my class with a 3.9 GPA. As we all know, hard work is the most important key to success. I knew that I could never achieve my full potential if I just sat and waited for the opportunity to come. So, I set a goal to be better than the rest and start exceeding my own expectations in college. I achieved that and landed my first job straight out of college at Proxy PR. My successes don’t stop there though, I continue to widen my horizon and skillsets with my current position with all the opportunities, challenges, and relationships Proxy PR has to offer.
Desert Island book/music/movie and why?
My desert island movie/show would be The Office because you can watch it over and over again and find something new, funny, and impactful each time. You can’t get that with any other show. I admire that nonsense
