You guys! Our awesome Comms powerhouse (talented photog, speed copywriter, data-digesting queen, organisational mastermind + chief tea drinker) Whitney (Whit) has now been with the Paper Road fam one whole year (man, how time flies). We cannot imagine #officelife without her, and so here we thought we'd share a lil' more about this #1 gem. // QUICK Q&A WITH WHIT:
One thing you might not know about me is: I am a total homebody. I love spending time in and around my home, all while filling it with as many plants as possible.
My first job ever was: sweeping floors at my dad's farm equipment business, which is almost futile with the amount of dirt that would come in off of the equipment, but it was free babysitting.
When I grew up I wanted to be: I had some really weird options for what I wanted to be when I grew up. A cartologist was one of the options, since I loved drawing but didn't have a great imagination, and you don't have to imagine what you'd be mapping (right?). Another option was a pathologist, it's like being a doctor but you can't accidentally kill someone who's already dead. Instead, I decided to stick with what I was good at: photography. And, the writing came later.
I put my work style down to: to-do lists! I love checking off tasks from a list.
My pet peeve is: when people break the rules.
You're most likely to hear me say: *gasp* did you hear... (add dramatics here)
I nerd out about: Statistics! From my wildly different childhood career choices you can see that I have both a mind for arts and sciences/maths. I love combining the two and using stats to dig into the effectiveness of content.
My superpower is: saying hello to every pupper to pass!
I wish I was better at: at letting myself be bored
My office must-haves are: a good mug and a smooth cup of black tea
I can't even start my day without: snuggles from my pup, Creek.
My office style could be described as: you can always tell when I have meetings... When not working, you'll most likely find me: kayaking/cross-country skiing, at the dog park, or making my partner, Tim, cook for me.
My favourite site / App is: Netflix, I love watching movies, but don't spend much time onlin
