Brie has been in the advertising world since she graduated college in 2011 with a BS in Clinical Psychology from Saint Xavier University. She originally wanted to be a clinical psychologist but before going to grad school she was greatly drawn to the advertising world. There is so much psychology in advertising from a needs analysis, to a media plan, to an actual implementation. She has worked with both large and small companies.
Outside of her normal day job, she has a diverse set of interests. She is a figure skating coach teaching kids from 3 years old all the way to adults. Brie is also a dance coach who specializes in jazz, technical dance, and poms. Obviously, she loves to multi-task.
Do you have a favorite quote?
"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."
If you had a superpower what would it be?
Invisibility: There are so many times and situations that I would love to be a fly on the wall.
You're happiest when?
I am a social butterfly so I love anytime that I spend with friends. I love being around people. I love a nice glass of red wine, spending time with my three dogs (Precious-Yorkie; Bella-Teddy Bear; Winnie-Golden Doodle ... yes it is a full house), and traveling (especially to Napa Valley, Vegas, or Walt Disney World).
What is your hidden talent?
I wouldn’t say figure skating and dance are my hidden talents since everyone knows I am a coach but my hidden talents would be that I was a pretty good actress back in the day…appeared in a lot of plays ... but my most unique talent is that I can do an awesome goat impression.
Best Part/Favorite Part of your job at SMM?
I love cold calling/prospecting in order to meet new business owners and learn about all type of different industries. No business is the same, which makes my job very interesting, and never the same on a day-to-day basis.
Favorite Sports/Sports Teams
Since I am a figure skater my favorite team would have to be The Chicago Blackhawks…since I love ice sports. But, I am originally from KC, so I am a die-hard Royals and Chiefs fan.
Favorite TV Show/Movie
I am obsessed with The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise and any spin offs of this show. I love Flip or Flop as well as Keeping Up with the Kardashians…so really any type of reality TV that keeps it on a classy level. My favorite movie would have to be Morning Glory ... a lot of people haven’t seen it but it is a great movie about a girl overcoming obstacles when everyone around her didn’t believe she could.
Strange facts about you?
I went back to school for Pre-Med because I thought I wanted to be a neurosurgeon…ended up being too much schooling. I love scary movies, scary TV shows, and Halloween. I love the adrenaline rush.
I love anything country since I am from Kansas City! My favorite band would be Zac Brown band ... they put on an amazing performance.
