What led you to work for Mosquito Joe?
After working in state government for a couple of years, I was looking for something that gave me more freedom to be creative. The company structure and overall mission of Mosquito Joe really resonated with me. I saw it as a place where I could grow professionally and have fun in the process.
What is your favorite part about your position at Mosquito Joe?
I love that I get to help franchisees explore their area and find creative ways for them to engage with their community. There are so many different ways to do local marketing and it’s been very interesting finding out the nuances of each area.
What are the biggest strengths professionally that you bring to the Mosquito Joe team?
I’m a complete and utter nerd. I absolutely love reading and researching. This has helped me get familiar with the areas our franchisees service so that I can provide them with a high level of support.
What’s your favorite Mosquito Joe tagline and why?
My favorite tagline is: “If you’re wearing bug spray, you’re overdressed.” I’m very particular about my clothes, so the last thing I want to do after getting cute is apply bug spray.
If they made a movie about your life, who would you want to play you and why?
Marsai Martin for sure. She’s cute, but she has a lot of sass and intelligence. Her character on Black-ish reminds me so much of myself when I was a kid.
If you could plan your ultimate vacation, where would you go?
I would take a tour of all the Lusophone (Portuguese-speaking) countries. There’s so much diversity! I’d be able dance and eat my way through four out of seven continents!
How do you like to spend your time outdoors?
Running back into the house. If I have to be outside, it’s typically for a barbecue or some kind of family gathering. The company (and food) helps keep my mind off the bugs!
How attracted are mosquitoes to you?
I think I’m a pretty good catch, but for some reason mosquitoes don’t seem to think so.
If you were shipwrecked, what three items would you want to land on shore with you?
I would carry an iPod, a knife, and a bag of Sour Gummisavers.
