What do you bring to NSM?
To NSM I bring my wits, my perspective and my flair. I came to NSM from the world of PR, I have a passion for design and I am also one of the few who truly LOVE spreadsheets, processes, and organization. So when all of that combines, the resulting concoction is how I approach my role as an Account Manager.
What is your favorite part about being at NSM?
My favorite part about being at NSM is that every day is unexpected. In a day I could go from writing a brochure to hosting an event to wearing a vegetable costume—that all really happened, by the way. Our ever-changing daily agenda is reflective of the NSM culture as a whole. We are constantly changing, evolving and questioning what it is we believe we “know.” Learning and growing in that sort of environment is what makes me love what I do.
What is your proudest project or biggest wow at NSM?
I think each of my projects makes me proud in one way or another. I consider myself equally left-and right-brained, so my right-brain self loves it when we create something truly beautiful and my left-brain self is over-the-moon when we can deliver ROI for our clients. Ultimately, my favorite moment is when a client says “WOW, you really get me.”
What does your title mean?
I am the self-proclaimed Communications Samurai at North Star. Samurais are proud, strong and loyal. They fight hard and stand tall. I try to embody that on behalf of my clients and for NSM.
Who would you be as a superhero?
I’d probably be AquaLady (the female counterpart to AquaMan that I am making up on the spot) because I basically thought I was a mermaid for the formative years of my life, so AquaLady is a pretty close second.
What is your favorite and least favorite food? And why?
Least favorite food, hands down, is bananas. Favorite food is grapes…fermented…and bottled…okay wine, my favorite food is wine.
What is your favorite thing about RI?
Clam cakes from Quito’s in Bristol, Goosewing Beach, sunset boat rides on Narragansett Bay.
If you could be any punctuation mark what would you be and why?
If I could be any punctuation mark, I would be an asterisk, because I act like a star and the best things about me are found in the fine print.
