We thought it’d be nice to introduce ourselves, so each week we’re shining a spotlight on a member of the Infinity Dental Web team.
Becky–bringing life to words and brands.
Content Writer & Social Media Manager
What’s that like?
As a content writer, I create web content and monthly blogs for our dental clients. As a social media manager, I work directly with the dental office to help them build their brand and social media presence, as well as generate engagement.
What’s your favorite thing about your career?
I love that I’m able to have a flexible schedule that allows me to be accessible to my family.
People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
I’m inspired daily by Maya Angelou’s quote, “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” I believe that the best way to make people feel something is by telling a compelling story. I have a passion for using the power of words to not only inform readers, but also inspire them and ultimately compel them to take action. I also love that writing often involves research, which gives me countless opportunities to learn something new.
What was your first job?
My first job was at age 16 and I was a carhop at A&W. There’s nothing better than an ice-cold draft root beer in a chilled mug! The carhops had changers that we wore on our hip and we had to KNOW how to count change back without looking—sadly, this is a skill most teens today are without. I still make killer root beer floats and ice cream cones.
Who is your hero?
It’s hard to narrow it down to just one. First, I would have to say my parents because they shaped the person I am today. I appreciate their patience, wisdom and the generosity and love they show every day, even though I’m all grown up and have a family of my own. They rock as grandparents!
My other hero would be my friend Allison, who sadly, passed away from a long battle with breast cancer almost seven years ago. She was a wonderful friend and mentor, who, despite her illness always lived life to the fullest and battled fiercely and fearlessly until the very end. She taught me so many things about living in the moment and making the most of every day that we have.
What would you sing at Karaoke night?
Shamelessly, I’m a total 80’s pop girl, so I would sing pretty much any song by Debbie Gibson (ok… you can quit laughing now!)
What’s your favorite family tradition?
We always make it a tradition to have Christmas morning as a family at our house. We wake up, open presents and make breakfast together.
What’s the most unusual thing you’ve ever eaten?
Sushi. That probably doesn’t sound that unusual to most people, but for this Midwestern girl, it took a lot of convincing for me to try it. I’m glad I did, because I love it!
How many languages do you speak?
I took four years of German in high school but unfortunately, I’ve pretty much lost all of it over the last 25 years. However, if arguing with your teenager is a language, however, I am fluent. Any of you parents of teenagers out there relate?
