More about Stacia:
What is your educational background?
I am a junior at the U of M- Twin Cities studying business and marketing while minoring in mass communications
What lead you to Search Marketing?
I was a data analysis intern at FRWD last summer and had the opportunity to do work with both SEO and SEM. It was one of my favorite parts about my internship so it’s great that I am still able to work with analytics and search marketing.
What are some of your hobbies/ What do you do in your free time?
I was a dancer for 17 years of my life but now I devote my free time to yoga. I also enjoy reading and baking.
What’s you favorite part about NHI thus far?
My favorite part about working at NHI is the fact I get to work so close with Lizzy and Luke. They have such brilliant minds and I have already learned so much from them. I also appreciate that I am not looked at as an intern figure and have the opportunity to do real work and gain beneficial experience.
What’s your favorite aspect of living in MN? And your least?
I love everything about Minnesota. I have a cabin in Crosslake and I absolutely love going up there and enjoying every season. No complaints for me!
Favorite local restaurant?
I live in Dinkytown so it may be cliché for me to say this but I love everything about Tony’s Diner. I am a huge breakfast person and they have the best breakfasts. Also, the service there is great which makes it that much better. I also love sushi so any sushi bar is great in my book.
Do you have a favorite band?
Right now my favorite artist is Ben Rector, but I love every kind of music. I went to Lollapalooza a few summers ago and would love to go back.
What special qualities are you bringing to NHI?
I consider myself to be extremely ambitious and industrious. I have a passion for advertising but also am extremely attracted to analytics and numbers which I think is something unique and definitely a quality most people don’t have. I am able to pick up on tasks given to me without much background and find it intriguing to learn new things and ideas. I am not afraid of failure and only see it as a stepping stone to success.
Anything else you’d like to share?
So excited to grow as a young professional at NHI and gain knowledge and experience from the people I work with.
