Staff Spotlight: Megan - The Digital Specialist

Hello...It's me! I am the one who makes and sends all those adorable, yet pesky emails. I have worked at Embellish on and off for years, but recently, after my first year in college, came back and spoke to my Aunt April about re-branding the company. Since then, we have revamped our logo, updated our website, and began to expand this great company to the best of my ability. I strive everyday to get Embellish to be a household name across America. It's been a long hard road, and I know we still have a long way to go, but we will get there.  If there anything you can think of that you want more/less of, to incorporate, or just to know, hit me up in the comment section of this post. I promise I look at each and everyone...it's my job after all! ;)

1.    What three traits define you?  

Creative, Crazy, and Fun. My mom would say I’m lazy, but that’s just her.

2.    What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?

I couldn’t live without my phone, but not for the reason most people couldn’t. I use my phone to plan the trips I want to take. Airplane tickets have to be bought at the craziest times to get the best deal.

3.    What is your greatest fear? 

My biggest fear would be…to not live. I’m pretty shy, so I’m worried that it will keep me from going places and experiencing life.

4.    Where is your favorite place to be?

My bed, honestly. I love naps. I could wake up from a nap,  watch a tv show, then be ready for another one. It’s a little ridiculous.

5.    Where is the best place you’ve traveled to and why?

My family and I travel all over for family vacations, and my favorite place so far was the Virgin Islands. We got to take a boat to some secluded caverns, and I love photography, so it was the best place to take nature pictures. Plus I got to practice my sub-par British accent there when we island hopped to the British Virgin islands.

6.    What does true leadership mean to you?

Someone who can take charge, delegate efficiently, and someone who is strict, but can make exceptions when they need to. You have to be hard, but give some leeway to gain people’s trust. And when they trust you, they will be honest with you, and honesty and communication are the keys to success, in my opinion. That’s why I love working for my Aunt April. She knows what needs to be done and is stern, but she stays upbeat and works with you if you need it.

7.    Which one would you want most – flying cars, robot housekeepers, or moon cities? 

Definitely moon cities. I’m obsessed with space and the possibility of living on other planets (Yes, I know the moon isn’t a planet, but it’s the same idea). Sign me up for that zero gravity life!

8.    What has been the most important innovation you have witnessed in your lifetime?

The internet. It was born around the time I was. It’s the most obvious change in our society, but people are so oblivious to its importance.

9.    What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?

Well, I’m in college right now as a communications major, so I hope to one day be the editor of a magazine or an online website designer. I’m the staff member that usually makes all the collages and email newsletters. Let me know if I can make them any better in the comments below. There’s always room for improvement!

10. If you could do another job for just one day, what would it be?

For one day… I’d be the head of the CIA and request all access to the X-Files. I love conspiracies and history, so I’d just spend the day reading up on all the crazy weird stuff that has happened.

11. What are your three most overused words/phrases?

“LOL.” I started to say it ironically to pick at people who said it in real life, but now it’s a dirty habit. I guess I got what I deserved for picking, huh?

“Sorry ‘bout it”

“Have you heard about the conspiracy about …?”

12. Tell us something that might surprise us about you.  

I plan to graduate college and move to Ireland permanently. It’s my dream home, and no one believes that I can or will actually go. We’ll see.
