What is your favorite thing about working at SpeakEasy?
My favorite thing about working at SpeakEasy is our team! We are so tight-knit; we all get along so well and genuinely love working together. It makes the intensely long days during the heat of campaign season so fun!
Where are you based right now and what’s your favorite thing to do in your city?
I am based in San Francisco. I love to try out new bakeries and take my dog Annie on long walks or urban hikes.
Where did you grow up and what do you miss the most about home?
I grew up just outside of Chicago. In addition to friends and family of course, I miss deep dish pizza and the beautiful summers!
What has been the most rewarding part of working at SpeakEasy?
I work a lot on the templates we provide to candidates, so I find it really rewarding when we get to see them in action! Candidates and staffers have used our templates in so many creative ways – I love to see what they come up with. I also love finishing out election season and seeing how well our clients did in their races – whether they won their seat, increased voter turnout, or raised awareness about an important issue. All of it matters and it’s a thrill to be a part of it.
Do you have any exciting travel plans this summer?
I am traveling to Israel for a close friend’s wedding this summer. I’m looking forward to eating my weight in hummus!
