In Milwaukee and looking for a great gig? Read Valerie’s answers to our 7 Quick Questions, then give her a call!

  1. What most excites you about your work and the contribution you make? What thrills me most about my job is that I get to play an active role in helping people grow in their career. There is no better feeling than connecting great talent with a great company.

  2. What’s one question a candidate should always ask in a job interview? “What makes somebody in this position and at this company truly successful?” This gives you a glimpse into the culture of the company as well the opportunity to explain how you possess all of the right skills and background to be their ideal candidate.

  3. What’s one important skill every person should have? Being a good listener. Becoming a successful creative and marketer has so much to do with listening for opportunities: finding (and solving) that pain point for your customers, locating that empty niche in the marketplace, etc. I think that applies to just about everything in life! Listening allows us to grow a business, our careers and our relationships.

  4. What do you love about working with creative talent? I spent the first (almost) decade of my career at ad agencies as an account manager, so I have a deep appreciation for the creative process. Even after all that time, I’m still inspired every day by the incredibly talented designers I get to meet and work with.

  5. If you could have dinner with one person living or dead, who would it be and why? Oprah. Because she's Oprah. Need I say more??

  6. What tech innovation has most impacted your life? Smartphones. I honestly don't know how I survived in work and life without it. I can connect with any person I need/want to throughout the day regardless of their location or mine. Complete communication game changer!
