Today’s Featured Employee is also writing a guest blog post. Kate comes from the Marketing Account Executive team and just celebrated her one year anniversary this past June! She is a Towson Alum with a degree in Advertising, Public Relations and Marketing.
This past year has been absolutely fantastic, Vocus has helped me grow so much both personally and professionally.
My favorite part about my job as a Marketing Account Executive is the fact that my role is so dynamic. Working with a large client book allows me to have a hand on so many different businesses, from real estate to agriculture to fashion to education and more! It is wonderful to play a part in such a variety of businesses. Even more so, I love when a customer calls me excitedly to share company news that is a direct result of our work together with the Marketing Suite and or press releases. It always makes my day to hear about my clients’ success. Their positive feedback fuels me and makes me want to be an even better AE.
My job allows me to play so many different roles. I get to learn about best practices, Vocus helps me stay on top of industry trends, I can discuss social media, press, publicity, email and more with clients. Every day when I come to work my job will be different. I like to stay on my toes and be constantly challenged.
My hobbies include gardening, jewelry making, and yoga. My teammates laugh because my desk is covered in plants (5 pots and counting!). Yoga is one of my favorite forms of both self-expression and stress relief.

A: Greece. I traveled there after graduating high school, it was is the most beautiful place I have ever visited.
Q: What is your most treasured possession?
A: I have two cats. I guess they are not really “possessions” but they are so important to me, I love my meows. I included a picture of Mila with some wire wrapped stones/crystals I recently made, as well as a photo of the two kitties sleepin in the sunshine.
