What’s your average day like at Oneupweb?

My average day at Oneupweb will have some combination of client calls, internal strategy meetings and talking through a new update or request with the development team.

Tell us about your favorite Oneupweb moment.

Such a hard question to answer – but I would have to say my favorite moment was this winter when us Account Managers got together for a virtual coloring and craft date. Was really awesome to connect with everyone outside of work and have a little fun while still being able to stay safe.

What’s your favorite blog, and why?

Fresh Exchange’s Garden Blog – they do such a great job at providing garden tips and stories in a way that inspires you to do more gardening and incorporate more local food into your habits, all while providing that inspiration in a way that makes it easy to make small changes.

What makes Traverse City appealing?

Traverse City is the perfect combo of city living and vacation life – those of us fortunate enough to live in the area are really able to take advantage of a whole different type of work-life balance that other cities just do not allow for.

What do you really do at Oneupweb?

I answer a lot of emails. Ha, no in all seriousness I would say that, by nature, I am a solutions-oriented person, which means my main focus is always problem-solving and troubleshooting for my teams and clients.

What do you do when you’re not at work?

I’m a board game junkie and I love organizing game nights with my friends/family. Luckily for me, I’m a super big fan of solo-play games that have alternative rules for playing alone, which means I don’t have to miss out on any board game time during this pandemic.  

Years from now, what will stick out most about 2020-2021?

I happen to be the poster child for pandemic hobbies, 2020 will always be remembered as the year I got chickens … and a deep freezer … and a puppy … and a Peloton and learned how to make candles and bread, and … the list, embarrassingly, keeps going …. 

It’s 5:30pm – what’s your cocktail of choice?

Anything from Tandem Ciders.

What’s the last song you intentionally listened to?

“Blinding Lights” by The Weeknd – on repeat.

What do you carry in your purse?

Dog treats and hand sanitizer.  

What’s your secret guilty pleasure?

Not really a secret but I end every workday with a solo dance party in my living room; really helps kickstart the evening and switch your brain from work to play.

Favorite book/movie/album/TV show, etc.?

  • Book – “The Boy Next Door” by Betty Cavanna – mostly because it reminds me of being a child with a big heart for books.
  • Movie – “Poolhall Junkies”
  • Album – “Futures” by Jimmy Eat World
  • TV Show – “Sherlock” starring Benedict Cumberbatch

Describe yourself in 3 to 5 words.

Energetic, thoughtful, loyal, talks too much … oh you said only 3-5 words … oops.

What would you not be caught dead wearing?

A Lions jersey. GO PACK, GO!  

What’s one of life’s simple pleasures?

Soaking in the magic that is Leelanau County. Sit me down anywhere – the beach, the woods, a cherry orchard, and I will be happily content just soaking it all in.

The Internet is listening: Give us your words to live by:

If you can get in the habit of putting away your laundry the same day you dry it – you truly will be unstoppable.
