Next in our series of employee profiles, we’re spotlighting our Account Coordinator, Brittany Bjerke!
What did you do before starting with FiveFifty?
Before starting with FiveFifty, I worked as a Sr. Program Manager for a technology incubator in San Diego, CA, called EvoNexus. I stayed busy organizing panel and keynote educational/networking events within the regional tech community and also assisted with the organization’s rebranding effort. Watching and feeling the passion of entrepreneurs made for an exciting work environment!
What has surprised you most about working with FiveFifty?
I’m continually humbled by the talent and intellect this industry requires. Trying to stay ahead of the curve in an industry that constantly evolves demands dedication and diligence.
What might someone be surprised to know about you?
People may be surprised to know I graduated from college with a B.S. in Public Health and caring for people is one of my biggest passions. Fun fact: When I was younger, I would offer my time at senior communities handing out bags of my stuffed animals.
People may also be surprised to know I recently spent four months backpacking and volunteering on farms throughout Europe under the WWOOF program.
How do you spend your free time?
My free time is spent with friends and family, playing golf, traveling as often as possible, hiking, camping and exploring Colorado’s beauty. I also enjoy cooking and have a (some might say crazy) addiction to the Food Network.
What do you wish other people knew about FiveFifty?
I wish others understood the research, insight and effort we pour into every client and campaign. One big differentiator between us and other agencies is our distinction as a Trade Desk. Not many agencies offer programmatic buying in-house and it makes us unique.
How would your friends describe you?
I would like to think my friends can look to me for a good laugh, a good talk and some good advice. They may or may not mention my somewhat OCD tendencies and my likeliness to get distracted while sitting at red lights.
