Please describe your relevant analytical skills. Analyzing large datasets and working through problems is, and has been, part of working in marketing. Whether it's user data in Google Analytics, building pivot tables in Excel or finding statistical significance in testing, I understand how to interpret information and how to use it strategically helps to guide my work on a day-to-day basis.
Please describe your ability to be impartial. I believe in making informed decisions. I allow myself an initial reaction and then giving myself time to process and consider other opinions and viewpoints. For me, to be impartial is to understand the 360-degree viewpoint and to try and understand others that may have an opposing view when making decisions.
Please describe your appreciation for the City of Austin's diverse demographics and geography. I've lived in Austin, TX for over a decade and have watched it grow, expand and change. It's a city with a diverse food landscape, an expanding tech job market and an abundance of outdoor recreation from watering holes to hike and bike trails. But, my favorite part of Austin is how dog-friendly it is.
Please provide your employment history. I currently work in marketing at a tech company leading global content initiatives and demand generation. Previously, I worked in marketing at HomeAway/Expedia for nearly 7 years, before moving to work at a non-profit to help make a difference in underprivileged children's lives at Southwest Key Programs. For nearly 2 years I worked as the Marketing and Communications Manager to build awareness for unaccompanied immigrant children and their journey, youth involved in the juvenile justice system and community impact projects such as local food banks.
Please provide any other information you wish to be considered during the selection of the most qualified applicants for the Commission. I love the Austin community and want to ensure all its citizens thrive and aren't left behind.
