Working for Shareablee in Michigan is amazing! I get to experience the calming comfortability of working in my hometown, Ann Arbor, MI, while being a part of the exciting and fast-paced social media measurement industry. I work with my creative and knowledgeable clients and coworkers during the week and cheer for Michigan Wolverine football on the weekends.
I use video calls as much as possible. I believe conversations are better when you can see a person’s face rather than just hear their voice. I always have my camera on whenever I am speaking with someone from the Shareablee team. It is a much more personal, rewarding and productive experience.
Explaining data isn’t hard as long as you can understand and describe the story it is telling. Anyone can look at a spread sheet with 5,000 rows and 25 columns and get overwhelmed. As a data analyst, I dive headfirst into the data, extract the important messages and construct a simple story that is relevant to my audience.
One of my proudest moments at Shareablee is when I created and presented the State of Social Gaming webinar last year. I have a passion for video games, and I love the social data surrounding them as well. Since working at Shareablee, I am now able to combine my passion and career and share that information with the Shareablee community.
It’s not on the wall but I always have a Slinky on my desk. I think a Slinky is the best fidget toy. There are infinite ways it can be pulled and stretched, and it makes a cool sound as it compresses back together. When looking at a spreadsheet full of data, I always have a Slinky close by!
