How would you describe your morning routine? What do you typically do?
I wake up after snoozing quite a bit. Some mornings I will go to a workout class and others I snooze even more! I eat breakfast and get ready. Before I walk out the door, I put my headphones in and throw on a morning news podcast. My commute is about 25 minutes, so my favorite podcasts definitely do the trick!
Commuting in a big city, what is it like and what tips do you have about it?
It’s not the best, to be honest. I constantly feel like a sardine getting squished in the subway. But when I’ve left the subway and I’m on my walk, I own it. Don’t be delicate when you commute around NYC!
What is your go-to work outfit?
Jeans, booties and my leather jacket.
What is something you always have at your desk?
I have a cute little painting of a pineapple hung up at my desk!
What is your favorite spot in the office?
The 10th Floor with all the many years of Ogilvy creative displayed.
When you know it is going to be a challenging day at the office, what helps keep you motivated?
I remember how lucky I am to be apart of such a unique program. I recall how wide-eyed I was on the very first day at Ogilvy (to be honest I still am) and buckle down.
What kind of projects have you worked on so far in this current rotation?
I’ve done a bunch of competitive reviews and a weekly newsletter to update our internal and external teams on the latest cultural trends!
Lunch break! What do you do for lunch?
Check the kitchen on all 11 floors for leftovers.
What do you wish someone had told you day one?
You’re gonna be fineeee.
How do you break up your work day?
I get hot chocolate at 3 p.m.
If you had to pick, what has been your favorite thing about working at Ogilvy?
My favorite thing about working at Ogilvy is getting to meet a large number of people from all over the business. Everyone is incredibly kind and willing to share personal experience. They are eager to help us newcomers!
Are you involved in any professional networks? If so, which ones and what do you like about it?
I’m starting to get involved in the Young Professional Network! I’m excited to meet new people and attend different events. I’d love to end up on the planning board.
Hell’s Kitchen – what is a cool local spot/restaurant/shop around the office you have found that you love?
I love Meme. It’s an itty bitty Greek place on 45th and 10th that has amazing food!
How do you wind down after a long day at work?
I typically like to exercise, go to the grocery store and watch TV/cuddle up with a book.
When you are not in the office, what do you like to do around NYC?
I love to explore all of the different parts of the city! I am always down to walk miles and miles (especially when the weather is nice) to try different restaurants, museums and bars.
Ogilvy Facts 101 – what is something interesting you have learned about Ogilvy as a company?
We have an entire team on the second floor, Geometry, who specializes in shopper marketing. There are incredibly smart people in that business who Ogilvy constantly utilizes.
