What led you to work for Mosquito Joe?
I was looking for an opportunity that allowed me to utilize all the skills I’d gained from prior experiences. The Marketing Specialist role with Mosquito Joe has given me the chance to do all the things I loved in my previous jobs while still challenging me to learn something new every day.
What is your favorite part about your position at Mosquito Joe?
It’s great to be able to champion franchisees through their public relations. It’s so rewarding to see franchise owners out in their communities. Whether it’s educating the public about outdoor pests and vector-borne disease, participating in local events or giving back through philanthropy, I enjoy being able to help franchisees promote their businesses.
What are the biggest strengths professionally that you bring to the Mosquito Joe team?
I’m a pretty quick learner. I feel like I’m a bit of chameleon and I can take on pretty much any task.
What’s your favorite Mosquito Joe tagline and why?
“Tired of being the main course?” I’m a total foodie – I’d much rather eat an entrée than be one!
If they made a movie about your life, who would you want to play you and why?
Definitely Jennifer Lawrence. As much as I’d like to believe we look similar, don’t think the likeness is there. But I think she’d capture my essence well since she’s laid-back and super cool.
If you could plan your ultimate vacation, where would you go?
My bucket list trip would be traveling through countries in the Mediterranean. Not only are the views absolutely gorgeous but the food looks incredible.
How do you like to spend your time outdoors?
With a beer in my hand! I like going to outdoor concerts, enjoy hanging out at the beach and grilling out with friends and family. A cold one goes great with all of those activities!
How attracted are mosquitoes to you?
Mosquitoes like me a little too much. I told them I’d rather just be friends, but they keep bugging me!
If you were shipwrecked, what three items would you want to land on shore with you?
A solar panel phone charger, my iPhone and headphones – I have hours of playlists downloaded on Spotify to keep me preoccupied!
