Describe your job if you were describing it to a child.
A chocolate company wants to show their video on everyone’s phone. I make that happen.
How has Tapjoy helped you in your career development?
Tapjoy (when it was Offerpal in the Fremont office) was my first job out of high school and my entire career development has been here at Tapjoy. I started at Offerpal almost 10 years ago in Customer Service as a contractor and eventually, that position led me to a full-time CS position. After a year in CS full-time, I was offered a position in Ad Operations and have moved up within the Ad Ops team over the years. I’ve been lucky enough to work with smart and talented people at Tapjoy who have really helped me grow as a person, personally and professionally. I’ve also had great managers who believed in me and continue to challenge me as I grow in my career. That really has lead me to where I am today.
What has been the most important innovation you have witnessed in your lifetime?The Internet is the most important innovation that I’ve witnessed. It dominates our lives and technology wouldn’t be what it is today if it wasn’t for the Internet.
What do you wish you could tell yourself 10 years ago? What do you think you’ll want to tell your current self 10 years from now?
One thing I wish I could tell myself 10 years ago is to let things go. Whether it’s physical or emotional, don’t overthink and hold onto things too long. I think I would tell my current self 10 years from now to keep going, keep working hard and stay focused.
Aside from necessities, what one thing could you not go a day without?
Relationships – Family and friends are my backbone, can’t imagine a day without them!
