What do you love most about working at Big Marlin Group?

I love the employees and our customers.  Everyone is always willing to help each other and it’s a great environment to be around.  I know it’s always going to be an adventure when I walk in the door each day.

What do you like to do in your free time? 

Listen to country music, read, watch Nascar and football

 Favorite memory/vacation as a child?

It’s hard to pick a favorite vacation from my childhood (although I’m a big Mickey Mouse fan so Disney World tends to stand out). All our family vacations hold a very special place in my heart. They were always full of excitement, adventure and most importantly tons of laughter.  My parents always made every trip amazing.

What are your top 3 favorite movies?

Too many to choose from, but Top Gun, Dead Pool, and Goonies are among my favorites.

What is one thing that you have learned here at Big Marlin Group?

I have learned a lot about marketing and the digital world.  It’s always changing and if you don’t stay on top of it you can get left behind.

Favorite thing to do/have done in Arizona? 

Country Thunder, Lake Powell, Sedona

Where do you want to travel? 

Ireland and the Maldives

How do you stay organized in your position?

It’s a must in my position. I have my hand in so many buckets I have to stay organized or things wouldn’t get done.  I’m a list maker so that helps with work and in my personal life.
