Amy’s Strengths

Positivity – I have an enthusiasm that is contagious. I am upbeat and can get others excited about what they are going to do.

Includer – I am accepting of others, show awareness of those who feel left out and make an effort to include them.

Woo – I love the challenge of meeting new people and winning them over. I derive satisfaction from breaking the ice and making a connection with another person.

Connectedness – I have faith in the links between all things. I believe there are few coincidences and that almost every event has a reason.

Input – I have a craving to know more. I like to collect and archive all kinds of information.

Background & Current Responsibilities

I have always been drawn to and fascinated by marketing and advertising. Even as a child I would use my Barbie dolls to act out and create commercials! In college I started out as a Psychology major and then transferred to being a Communication major. These things go hand in hand and often are combined in advertising and marketing to create an effective strategy.

My background has set me up very well for my current position at Webolutions and Project Manager.

My responsibilities as a Project Manager:

  • Manage budgets
  • Manage timelines
  • Manage client expectations
  • Work with all departments to ensure all elements are met and in line with our process
  • Website planning
  • Website testing
  • Website launch coordination
  • Website training
  • Create the best possible experience for our clients

 

Amy’s Other Passions

I love traveling, gardening, great food, art, painting, spending time with friends and family. I also enjoy spending time with my little dog, Chi Chi.  I enjoy meeting and talking to new people every chance I get. I also enjoy live music and go to concerts as much as possible (especially at Red Rocks!)
