Briefly describe what you do in a day.

In a typical day at JMA you will see me drafting or editing copy for clients’ websites or social media platforms. More recently I have also taken on a larger role working in databases and conducting research. 

What is the best part of your job?

The best part of my job is working with friendly, knowledgeable individuals who are always willing to take the time to teach me new things and help me become better at my job. As a recent graduate, I have a lot to learn and everyone at JMA has been incredibly helpful. 

What is your proudest moment at JMA?

My proudest moment at JMA was successfully completing my first year with GTMD and EOY campaigns. It was a heavy workload and there was a lot I didn’t know, but overall it was a great learning opportunity and I was happy to know that in the end everything was completed. 

What are three words to describe yourself?

Outgoing, reliable, driven

What’s one thing we wouldn’t necessarily know about you?

For the most part, I am not the type of person that enjoys a lot of down time. I like staying busy and actively doing different things. 

What is the best meal you’ve had?

I am very indecisive when it comes to this topic, but the first meal that comes to mind is a seafood linguini pasta I had a few weeks ago.
