best thing about my job: Designing emails and marketing material everyday for a variety of retailers. I especially love turning an email that I designed into a functional email to send to shoppers… also known as turning a jpg into HTML and making it look identical.
true shopper engagement is: Helping shoppers save money with personalized coupons, while also helping the retailer be successful.
my best shopping experience: When I was at a maternity store looking for pants, the lady working was very helpful. She asked what I was looking for, what size I wore in regular pants, what style, etc. She pulled a few pairs of pants and told me the difference between them before I tried them on. When I checked out, she gave me some coupons for new mothers and offered to sign me up for emails. Besides being very helpful, she was never very “pushy” like a lot of sales people can be.
hobbies: Spending time with my family, watching movies and relaxing when my baby allows it.
if i had a super power: Power mimicry so I can absorb another person’s powers or skills and do/be anything I want.

Pretty much the entire Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl movie.
favorite used expression: Just sayin’
preferred caffeine / energy source: Iced tea or chocolate.
