What is your favorite thing about the Forum culture?
Although I’ve only been with Forum for a short time, I’ve already felt a sense of family with my coworkers. Everyone that I work with has been so kind and helpful when it comes to getting a task done. They show professionalism in their work and challenge me to better my skills every day. Forum Communications fosters an environment where I can excel in my field and contribute to the bonds of the Forum family.
What social media platform do you use most often?
I definitely use Instagram the most because it’s a great way to keep up with my friends and see what they’re doing with their lives, while also posting updates of my own. My favorite feature of this platform is Instagram TV where I can make recap videos of some of my favorite trips. It’s always nostalgic to rewatch them and feel as though I’m back in a particular moment. As I progress through college, I see friends leave town and enter the professional world. With Instagram I’m able to stay connected with them.
What motto do you live by?
“Let all that you do be done in love.” 1 Corinthians 16:14
What do you like best about your job?
I really enjoy getting to use my design skills to craft something new every day. Working on projects from several different clients excites me and pushes me to sharpen my skills. A day of work never looks the same for me and I love that about it.
When you aren’t working, what are you doing?
When I’m not working, I love to spend time with my family, girlfriend, and/or friends, cook, play guitar, sing, workout, and travel!
Tell us about your family.
I come from a family of six. My parents both met while in college at the University of Buffalo. It is safe to say we are all Northerners at heart considering my siblings and I were born in Boston, MA. My two older sisters are in graduate school; one sister is studying vocal performance (specifically opera) and the other psychology. My younger brother just started his college career at the University of Georgia with me, so I get to hang out with him at our fraternity events throughout the school year. When we are all home together, we love to cook Polish food and spend quality time together playing board games or watching movies.
