Q1. What is your position and what does it entail?
A. I work within our Public Relations department to help gain earned media for Edison Nation, our inventors and products, the television series Everyday Edisons, as well as a few other projects we may have on our plates at any given time. As a team, our daily life consists of quite a bit of writing and media relations.
I am also involved in the Live Product Searches, helping to coordinate our search sponsors through the set-up and launch of their Live Product Search.
Q2. What do you enjoy most about working at Edison Nation/Everyday Edisons?
A. I enjoy the variety of work – my to-do list spans multiple initiatives and projects and I enjoy having a broader scope of the work we do all throughout Edison Nation.
Q3. What is your favorite food?
A. This one is a toss-up. I think I could eat sushi and pasta every day – although I try to contain myself.
Q4. What are 3 items you can’t live without?
A. A journal, my phone (sad but true!) and watermelon chapstick – I keep at least three with me at all times… it’s quite the addiction at this point.
Q5. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A. I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up! But, as a child, I wanted to be a dolphin trainer, and even made my own “business cards.” I’ve loved animals and the ocean for as long as I can remember, and dolphins were a favorite of mine for years.
Q6. If you could live someone else’s life for just one day, who would it be?
A. Hmm… probably Kate Middleton, just to be a princess (-er- Duchess) for a day!
Q7. What are the 3 things on your bucket list?
A. To visit Greece, buy a second home on the water somewhere, and — most importantly — to write a novel.
Q8. If your life had a soundtrack, what’s at least one song that would be on it?
A. Ben Folds, “The Luckiest.” It reminds me of being a teenager, and how I felt when I met my then-boyfriend, now-husband. I still feel extraordinarily lucky.
Q9. What is one of your favorite quotes?
A. I love quotes- so this was hard for me to choose. But, I really like the playful yet serious nature of the quotes from a company called StoryPeople, which features little stories and illustrations within prints, books and other items by artist Brian Andreas. This one speaks well to my project-management-type mind:
“This is a machine that’s supposed to make people good and true and kind and the funny thing is that it works best when it’s completely broken down so everyone has to stop what they’re doing and get together and figure out how to fix it.” – Brian Andreas
Q10. What do you think is the greatest invention in your lifetime and why?
A. The internet, for the wealth of information and new communication channels it offers.
Stay tuned for next month’s edition of “Meet the EN team” to meet another member of our staff!
