Why did you join SMPS?

My previous manager, Aurora Cammarata, is an SMPS Boston Past President. She encouraged me to join and get involved on a committee. It was amazing advice. Not only have I made new friends within the industry, but I’ve also improved my marketing and business development skills!

What was your favorite SMPS event to date?

I love our Annual Town Hall Meeting. It’s such a great opportunity for Committee Members, Chairs, and Directors, as well as Past Presidents, to come together, socialize, share ideas, and plan for future success. If you’re a member and not yet on a committee, I would highly recommend joining one and becoming a part of the fun!

What is your favorite screen-time break activity at work?

Hosting a fun, judgment-free, brainstorming session. There is nothing more refreshing than a stimulating whiteboarding session with team members. It’s my favorite way to come up with new, creative ideas!

What advice would you give to someone considering joining SMPS?

Definitely join! It is such a great resource on many levels whether you’re looking for advice for your day-to-day role, seeking additional education specific to the industry, or looking for a group of peers to bond with professionally – you can benefit greatly in so many ways and you won’t regret joining.

What is your favorite part about being a marketer in the A/E/C industry?

There is always something new happening! Especially working in Boston, there’s a lot of development happening all around, whether it’s restoring historic buildings or developing various neighborhoods, something exciting is always happening and it’s great to be a part of it.

 What’s the last thing you watched on TV and why did you choose to watch it?

Jeopardy! Whether I know the answers or not, I love to play along when I can, and I may even learn something new.
