How did you get to S&G?
Like many of you, I have followed S&G for a long time and loved this company and their core mission. So after graduating from Auburn University, I decided to apply for a job and am so thankful for the opportunity to work here. Auburn is the best little town and it’s fun exploring this place post college.
Tell us about your job. What are your roles & responsibilities?
I am the PR Manager here at S&G! I spend most of my time planning our social media content and email calendar, communicating with other brands to create collaboration opportunities and planning fun events.
What fills you up most at work?
My lunch break. Just kidding but really the people I work with every day are always so encouraging. It is the best thing to be able to come to the office and work alongside girls who genuinely care about you, ask how they can help take things off your to do list and make you laugh when you’re just having one of those days.
What are your must haves for a successful day?
My best days start with a large iced coffee. A lot of my daily responsibilities involve posting on social media and communicating with people who aren’t in the office so my MacBook and iPhone 7plus (have you seen the portrait mode on the camera?!) are big must haves! I also love making lists, so sticky notes can always be found on my desk.
What's your proudest moment to date?
We recently received the opportunity to travel to Waco, Texas and attend the Spring at the Silos at Magnolia Market. It was nothing short of amazing, down to every little detail. Joanna is all the goals. It was so rewarding to prepare for weeks and then work the event and meet so many amazing people from all over the country.
What do you love about working here?
I love working for a company that has a bigger purpose. Knowing that what you are doing is impacting others and glorifying God is something I don’t take for granted.
What's been your biggest learning lessons at S&G?
It’s okay to make mistakes. I’m so thankful for a boss like Megan that lets mistakes be teachable moments. When you mess up, learn from it and do better next time.
What advice do you have for a graduating senior wanting to do what you do?
Get as much experience as you can!! Whether it’s volunteering, internships or attending different events, learning outside of the classroom is a huge asset. Have genuine conversations with the people you meet because you never know who you might be talking to and what you can learn from each other or the relationships that will form.
