This week’s Featured Employee joined Vocus in April 2013. Kevin is an Accounts Receivable/Accounts Payable associate in our Finance department and located in our Beltsville, MD office.
Kevin was born and raised in Maryland. He grew up in Elkton, MD and graduated from the University of Maryland. Kevin resides in Washington, D.C.’s Bloomingdale neighborhood. Outside of work, he enjoys playing on his kickball team in D.C. He loves exploring the city and is always on the look out for new restaurants to try! When he’s not at his desk you can most likely find him in the arcade! He says, “The arcade is a great place to relax during the day! It doesn’t feel like you are in the office.”

Q: If you could pick anyone in the world to have lunch with, who would it be and why?
A: I would pick Jennifer Lawrence. I love her personality and the roles she plays in movies. I think we would have a fun lunch together. She is extremely talented, but still down to earth and funny.
Q: What is your greatest accomplishment at Vocus?
A: I would say landing the job. It’s my first entry level position after graduating from University of Maryland. I am so happy that I work here!
Q: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
A: I would want to live somewhere by the beach. I love the ocean and if it’s a city too, that’s even better. I’m thinking Miami or Rio?! The more exotic it is, the better!
Q: What is your most treasured possession?
A: Okay, I don’t own my apartment, but that is what I value the most because I wanted to live in a city my whole life. The fact that the dream is a reality makes me so grateful! I love living in D.C.
Q: What’s the one word you would choose to describe yourself?
A: Adventurous – I enjoy getting involved in D.C. and meeting new people. I also like to explore and try new things. I think it’s good to get out of your comfort zone sometimes.
Q: What’s some advice you would give a new employee for being successful at Vocus?
A: I would tell them to do their best and know that your managers are always there to help. Don’t be afraid to ask questions to get the job done!
