Title: Marketing Manager
Hometown: Onalaska, WI
Years working with Copart: 2.5
What brought you into the field you are working in?
I have my marketing degree and always knew I wanted to work for a large corporate company as my first opportunity out of college. When I was applying in Dallas, Copart stood out as a great opportunity to learn, grow and be an owner of projects.
What’s your favorite part about working at Copart?
The people! My coworkers are great and will always step up to help when you need it. We have amazing camaraderie that helps make the work hours enjoyable.
You’re stuck in an elevator- name three famous people (dead/alive) you would want to be stuck with:
Aaron Rodgers (I am a Green Bay Packer Fanatic), Amelia Earhart (I am curious about what happened) and Paul McCartney (Self-explanatory).
What career advice would you give someone that is starting off in your field?
Be willing to take on everything and anything when you first start. Being a jack of all trades in the beginning will help you figure out what you like doing and narrow your focus as you move through your career.
What is your favorite memory at Copart?
I had the opportunity to go to London and meet our UK team. It was really interesting to see how the business works over there and meet the employees at the Wooton headquarters. It also helped that I got to eat dinner in a room where Brad Pitt was dining.
How does your work help Copart buyers, sellers or the industry as a whole?
Part of my job is to be the voice of the buyer. I look online to find buyers who have trouble getting started or who have questions and help them to resolve their issues. Along with the rest of the marketing team, I work daily to try and make it as easy as possible to get started with Copart.
