Marketing Assistant – Phoenix
Where did you attend college, and what did you study?
I graduated last April from Grand Canyon University. My BA is in English with an emphasis in Professional Writing, and I also completed two minors in Literature and Film Production.
What do you like best about working at Civiltec so far?
What I’ve enjoyed most during my first few weeks is the ability to learn proposal strategies with clear direction, and being able to use a creative touch on technical material. I am a super creative person, but I love a little bit of order—so writing technical documents and editing them for clarity is the perfect niche for me. I get to make sure these documents sound strong and knowledgeable while giving them a bit of flare or “oomph.”
What are some of your current goals in your Civiltec marketing work?
At Civiltec, I know I will have the opportunity to grow as a professional – that is my primary goal, along with becoming more proficient in proposal writing.
When you’re not working, how do you like to spend your time?
I have a second job at a restaurant. I really enjoy talking to people and taking care of them, so working in a service-oriented position is fun for me. Outside of work, I have a ton of hobbies. I am a published poet, and I take a lot of time to focus on my writing. I love photography too. Exercise is a big part of my life and my family life. I got my dad into running, and now I am running after him as he trains for the Ironman Triathlon! I don’t plan on running quite that far, but I hope one day to run a full marathon. Lastly, I love movies and books. Horror and comedy are my favorite genres, but I always sit down for a classic or Disney movie and I enjoy video games like the Assassin’s Creed franchise.
