Describe a “typical day at z2 for you.
I start the day by drinking about 3 to 4 cups of coffee and getting overly hyped about the workday by catching up on emails and reading the latest marketing news.
After that, every day has been different at z2. From sending out ads to publishers to tracking down my new co-workers for materials for a photo shoot to visiting clients. One of the best parts so far is getting to know and work with my new coworkers. It’s amazing to be surrounded by such creativity and passion for what they are doing. It truly inspires me to do more and push myself to be just as creative and passionate about what I am learning to do.
What’s your favorite Wisconsin activity, pastime or place?
Farmers markets, festivals, and flea markets in the summer - WI knows how to take advantage and appreciate the season.
Farmers markets are one of my favorite things to do on a Saturday or Sunday morning. The festivals are always fun whether they are celebrating a culture and/or good food, or just really good music like Mile of Music in Appleton. I am also in love with bringing vintage pieces back to life, so its fairly typical I come back from whatever estate sale or flea market I can find with a large dresser/table/chair or an armful of vintage items.

Where is one place you’ve always wanted to go and/or where is your favorite place you’ve ever visited?
