How did you come to be at Snap?

Morgan Molitor, the queen of social media, is from my home town of Roseau but we never knew each other until this last year. Which if you don’t know the population of Roseau or where it is on the map you wouldn’t walk down the street without being able to name every single person.The month I came back to Minnesota I started casually looking for jobs and saw on Instagram that construction2style was hiring. I immediately emailed Morgan and we hit it off right away connecting about our hometown connections and  love for people and relationship building through media. After working together for a couple months she asked me to come check out Snap and the rest is history… or 6 months of learning and growing amongst a team of super talented, creative individuals.

What do you do for Snap?

Professionally, I manage the relationships between our clients and internal team within the social media department as well as strategize over goals to help businesses grow their brand and look awesome online. I also like to recruit – or drag – people to come to my workout classes.

What do you like most about your role?

I really love building relationships with current and prospective clients.  At Snap, we work with a variety of businesses never allowing any two accounts to be the same. It creates a continuous challenge and environment that allows for growth each and everyday.  

What do you like most about Snap?

The first thing that drew me into Snap was the close knit community culture. We truly work as a team here and are constantly collaborating and working with one another to help our clients reach and exceed their goals. I truly think I work with some of the most talented people in the industry.  I also really appreciate the unlimited supply of cold, Culligan water and the open work space.

What was your first concert like?

My first major concert, I was a junior in high school. My girlfriends and I made our first solo roadtrip to Fargo, ND – 3.5 hours. It was John Mayer with Michael Franti and Spearhead. I cried and John made out with a large woman in the front row.
