What interested you most about working for Sundt?
My primary focus was on finding a company that was well-respected and would allow me the opportunity to grow as a young professional. The minute I stepped into Sundt’s headquarters and interviewed, I knew I wanted to be here.
What are the most important qualities you look for from an employer?
I wanted to work for a company that treated its employees with respect. Once I received an overview of all the benefits Sundt provides for its employee-owners as well as what it envisioned for my career short-term and long-term, that was icing on the cake.
What does a Marketing Database Coordinator do?
I am focusing on new-hire information, project updates, creating reports and statistical reference guides and more. With time, the goal is to have a helpful impact on our internal and external marketing.
What would you like to be doing in 10 years?
Since I’ll be 32 at that point, the obvious answer is to be advanced higher up in the company. More specifically, I would love to be using my writing, media or film skills.
Seen any good movies lately?
I’ve actually been a little disappointed in some of the films I’ve seen lately. If I had to choose one that I liked, it would be “Get Out.” That’s a movie that would almost be better to watch the second go-round.
Where do you like to travel?
The best travel I have been a part of has been to the East Coast and the two adventures I had in Europe (Switzerland and a Baltic Sea cruise). I’m already looking into more opportunities to travel. My top three desired destinations would have to be Italy, Australia and Spain.
