Title: Marketing Communications Specialist
Hometown: Dallas, Texas
Years working with Copart: .5
What brought you into the field you are working in?
I love learning about how people think and what makes them tick. Marketing is applying what you know about people to getting them to buy your product. The data-centric research side and the subjective creative side both fascinate me.
What’s your favorite part about working at Copart?
I like that Copart is a responsible business. Unlike our competitors, we own, not rent, the land that our yards are located on, so we take care of it.
You’re stuck in an elevator- name three famous people (dead/alive) you would want to be stuck with: Einstein, Lady Gaga (I’m amazed at how she has marketed herself), Travis Stewart (my husband) He used to have a TV show, so I think he could count. Really, I just wouldn’t want him to miss out on Einstein and Lady Gaga!
What career advice would you give someone that is starting off in your field?
Make mistakes! It’s the best way to learn. Also, remember that you, as a person and employee, are a brand. Hold yourself to the same standards as you would a spokesperson.
What is your favorite memory at Copart?
I loved being a part of the employee training. It gave me a chance to see a side of Copart that I wouldn’t normally see as well as get to know colleagues in other departments.
How does your work help Copart buyers, sellers or the industry as a whole?
I help our team create a cohesive message to employees, new recruits, and other businesses. Then, I help spread the word to the community.
If applicable, what college did you attend?
University of Texas at Austin
What is one of your bucket list items?
I’ve been fortunate enough to do quite a bit of traveling, but haven’t lived outside the US. I’d love to spend a year abroad.
What are you binge watching right now?
Some friends and I get together every week to watch True Detective. It’s so much fun to hear everyone’s theories!
Favorite sports team: Texas Longhorns (Hook ‘em!) and the Dallas Cowboys (America’s team!)
Favorite vehicle: Toyota Supra! It was my first car, and I still think it’s gorgeous!
What is one interesting fact about you?
I am also a professional calligrapher. I have done calligraphy for major brands such as Chanel, Neiman Marcus, Patrón, and Carolina Herrera.
