Hey there, 2019!

And hey there, you. Thanks for stopping by!

We’re excited to celebrate a fresh year, a fresh start and a fresh batch of anniversaries.

This month we’re talking resolutions and 2018 highlights with our January anniversary pals: Brett, Sean, Jaclyn, Brandon, Dana and Staci. 

 

Brett Burkhart – 4 years

  • 2018 work highlight:
    • Last year, I enjoyed digging into a useful and timely blockchain project and learning the ins and outs of how this new technology is, and will be, used.
  • 2018 personal highlight:
    • Taking my family to Boulder, CO to stay with friends and hike the Flatirons.

Sean Neugent – 5 years

  • 2018 work highlight:
    • 2018 was a year of change, like when the PR team moved to the third floor. In my quest to sit at a desk on each floor in our building, I now only need to cover three more floors. So I have that going for me, which is nice. In other news, I think my favorite thing about work in 2018 is the fact I am fortunate enough to work on an incredible team of people I consider friends. We keep things light even during the stressful times, maybe we have a beer or two during the dull tasks and laugh a lot. Performance Marketing is an amazing place to work and I’m proud to play a part in the good work we do.
  • 2018 personal highlight:
    • My family went on a few vacations from Scottsdale to Phoenix (different trips) to our cabin in Minocqua. But, we had a few big life events including my son Owen’s birth and my sister getting married. 2018 was a big year of celebrating in the Neugent household.
  • New Year’s personal resolution: 
    • Normally my resolution consists of giving up cheese or sweets. But, this year I’m working on continued personal development and being the best version of myself. The good news is by stepping out of my comfort zone this year, it allows me to eat cheese and sweets. Personal growth never tasted so delicious.”

Jaclyn Overton – 3 years

  • 2018 work highlight:
    • It’s been a really cool experience to work on the rebranding and positioning efforts that we’re currently in the midst of for our three companies.
  • 2018 personal highlight:
    • Traveled to Ireland, Wales and Isle of Man. So pretty. Lots of green and more redheads in one place than I’ve ever seen in my life.
  • New Year’s personal resolution: 
    • Drink more water, less coffee.
  • New Year’s work resolution: 
    • Inbox (Close to) Zero at the end of each week. *Fingers crossed*

  • 2018 personal highlight:
    • Going to, and racing in, the Trek CX cup.

Dana Kelley – 4 years

  • 2018 work highlight:
    • Finally remembering what GDPR stands for and volunteering for PM’s trail clean-up initiative.
  • 2018 personal highlight:
    • I canned my first batch of homemade salsa, pasta sauce, tomato soup and hot jelly!! I hiked in the Badlands, Glacier, Olympic, Mt. Rainier and Grand Canyon National Parks. We also adopted Cubby, the most lovable three-year-old pup this side of the Mississippi. 
    • #adoptbeforeyoushop #aheinz572019
  • New Year’s work resolution:
    • Learn at least one new thing about Google Analytics each month.
  • New Year’s personal resolution: 
    • Complete my first extended backpacking trip and read at least five literary classics throughout the year.

 

Staci McDonald – 4 years

  • 2018 work highlight:
    • I was able to learn more about interactive projects as one of our team members was on maternity leave and I was able to step in and run some of my projects. It was a great learning experience and makes me appreciate them even more!
  • 2018 personal highlight:
    • Watch my son venture into team sports for the first time! It is a train-wreck and magical all at the same time!
  • New Year’s resolution:
    • Be more thoughtful, with my friends, co-workers, how I spend my time and appreciate it all!

It’s going to be hard to top 2018, but we sure are going to try. Luckily, we’ve got these six by our side for the ride.

Happy anniversary!
