Jennifer joined our team at the beginning of 2020, as an Account Manager. We wanted to get to know her a little better with a Q&A!
What is your new role at ColinKurtis?
As my new role at ColinKurtis, I am the account manager on one of our most exciting accounts at the agency. Every day is evolving and changing. In working with such a robust account, I have to be able to research clients’ needs, figure out the plan and help funnel that project through our internal systems. I assist in the meetings and executions that we deliver on a weekly basis. I try to keep things moving along.
What does a typical day look like?
My days start early and typically includes taking care of the critters at our home. I start work early and review the plans and meetings for that day, as well as the next day. I typically am juggling a couple of different projects and use the early hours to get those completed. As soon as 8 a.m. hits, it is meetings, phone calls, emails and the next thing you know it is 5 p.m. Every day is a whirlwind of activities and you never know how it’s going to go.
What part of your role do you enjoy the most?
I enjoy being part of a team that continues to evolve and grow as our clients grow. Our team needs to pivot as the client requires new services from us.
Can you tell us a little about your professional background?
I have been in the industry for many years. I have worked in many roles in the television industry, cable as well other local agencies. I have had the opportunity to watch technology change in the past 20 years and witness how marketing and advertising has evolved and continues to change in the effort to reach consumers in a much more engaging and personal way.
How do you enjoy spending your time outside the office?
Having two teenagers, I spend most of my time following them to their activities and sporting events. I enjoy bike riding, taking walks and hikes at local parks and forest preserves.
What did you want to be when you grew up (before you knew you would have a career in marketing)? The crazy thing is, I have always known what I wanted to do for a career, so I went to college to do exactly what I am doing now.
