How long have you worked at Weber Shandwick
I’ve been at Weber Shandwick for a year and a half. Before this, I worked in content strategy & creation, and consumer tech journalism.
Whats the best thing you’ve ever seen happen inside the Weber Shandwick offices?
If you’ve never been to a WS brainstorm, it’s truly something to behold. Collaborating with people outside your practice makes you aware of so many different experiences and often helps you pounce on that one perfect idea (or several!) you hadn’t considered before. It’s chaotic and creative and funny and productive.
In Five Words or less, how would you describe your Weber Shandwick colleagues
Quirky, quick-witted, quintessential, quenchless, quotable
Whats the coolest (or weirdest) thing you’ve had to do for a work project?
Life at Weber Shandwick means that I can wake up writing about skincare benefits, then move into explaining internal combustion in an engine by lunch before finishing out my day researching bone health and nutrition. For someone inherently curious about the world around you, it’s a job that rewards those who have a constant drive to learn.
At the core of any business, initiative or service is the people – it always needs to come back to that. I did project a few months ago where we asked people to share on how a product was helping them during the pandemic, and as a part of that, they ended up sharing quite extraordinary circumstances. They were so willing to connect, and their stories ultimately drove the project’s success.
If you need to get in the zone and focus on a project, what music is playing in your headphone?
The Dragon Age Inquisition soundtrack. Epic tasks call for epic music.
Whats your favourite restaurant in Singapore?
I grew up in Texas, but my mom is from the Philippines, so when I’m in the US, there is a steady supply of delicious food from my family members. Sadly, my cooking is nowhere near that caliber, so I visit Filipino Fiesta when I want to call back those memories. ❤
Do you have a favourite artist?
No, I think that would be too much like picking a favorite aspect of myself!
Where would you love to travel in the world to gain inspiration?
Every place has an ability to bring inspiration! I admit I have been thinking a lot lately about how Mexico’s size and regional diversity makes it a fantastic place to learn.
If you weren’t working in this industry, what would you want to do?
I’d definitely still be writing! I love science and medicine, so I’d be a science writer or even a science fiction author – something that weaves those principles into relatable, engaging stories that also leave people knowing more when they finish reading/watching.
Whats the best piece of career advice you’ve ever gotten?
“You can fail at what you don't want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.” – Jim Carrey
