Donuts for birthdays, Chipotle on Thursday and Nurf guns on the wall. I can’t believe, this is where I work. My name is Mimi and I joined Engage as a Client Strategist in April 2016.
When I first visited the Engage office and spoke with some team members, I knew that I wanted to work here. To work with a team of bright, fun and creative people in a work environment that encourages career development and continual growth would be a dream for me.
My love for digital and social began when I interned in the Digital Media Department at Georgia Aquarium. I learned the in’s and out’s of engagement, analytics and creative content. I helped with a website redesign and created punny, educational content for various social media platforms and even had the opportunity to learn how important social media monitoring is during a crisis.
From there I took a leap of faith and moved to Washington DC to work as Digital Media Director for CARLY for America. That was my first glimpse into the political world and sparked my desire to learn more. I got a crash course in politics, traveled to new states and spent 6 weeks living out of my suitcase during the primary season. I learned the importance of grassroots efforts and the stress of the warroom.
I’m a Georgia native and hold a degree in Public Relations and a minor in International Studies from Georgia Southern University. I was active in my sorority and learned about leadership, working with people and managing different project at once.
Their passion for digital media and the amazing clients that Engage works with make me excited to come into work every day. Sometimes I still don’t know how I was lucky enough to land such an incredible job and in such an incredible city. I feel so blessed to get to work with and learn from an incredible team. I’m excited to join Engage and see what the future holds.
