Welcome to the fourteenth installment of our employee spotlight! Today you’ll get to meet one of our Senior Content Strategists out of the Dallas office, Brittany Stubbs!
Q: What do you look forward to most on Monday?
A: Getting first dibs on snacks in the break room, listening to my colleague’s hilarious Tinder date stories (you know who you are), and getting paid to do what I love.
Q: Who is your favorite coworker and why?
A: Are you trying to get me in trouble? I plead the fifth!
Q: When were you hired? What was your starting position?
A: I was hired on June 18, 2014, as a copywriter. I remember the exact date because I had been working in the celebrity news industry and was so excited to tell my parents that my new job did not involve interviewing Bravo’s housewives or writing about which celebrities have the worst plastic surgery.
Q: Do you have a morning mantra/routine? What is it?
A: Before I go to work, I snuggle with my dog, Shark, apologize for leaving him, then explain how I have to keep my job to afford his bow-tie collection. He’s usually pretty understanding.
Q: What’s your favorite book or movie – why?
A: Bright Lights, Big City by Jay McInerney. I read it for a class my freshmen year in college and it convinced me to major in English under the naïve notion that all of my classes would contain equally intriguing reading lists. I was wrong. They definitely did not. But they got me here.
Q: What’s your go-to Dallas activity?
A: Socializing on a patio with a skyline view. My favorites include NYLO, HG Sply Co., and Happiest Hour.
Q: What’s your perfect Sunday-Funday?
A: I am a mimosa connoisseur – especially when the words “unlimited” and “cheap” are involved – so my perfect Sunday-Funday involves pursuing that passion and sharing my findings with friends.
Q: Do you have a hidden talent/secret power? What is it?
A: It’s not really a secret, but I am pretty talented when it comes to memorizing quotes. I can’t tell you what I ate last night or remember the dates of most historical events, but I can quote a great line from a movie I watched one time three years ago.
Q: If you weren’t doing digital marketing, what would you be doing and why?
A: Writing the next great American novel. Stay tuned.
Q: What’s the weirdest thing on your desk and what is its significance?
A: A pot filled with dirt but no plant. It once housed a bonsai tree, but despite what the guy at the miniature tree store told me, they canNOT survive without direct sunlight. I keep the pot as a reminder to always do my own research.
Q: What would you name the autobiography of your life – and why?
A: I Hope My Children Never Read This because, well …
