What is your role at HomeStars?
My role as the B2B Content Marketing Specialist is to create content and strategies that help HomeStars attract and convert home improvement pros into customers.
On most days, you can find me writing blog articles for our Pro Centre, working on the monthly newsletter, or curating emails!
What makes you excited to come to work every day?
I work with the greatest team. I’m so fortunate to have teammates that I can lean on when I have any questions or concerns, big or small. It makes working at HomeStars an absolute pleasure and pushes me to be the best teammate.
If you could trade jobs with someone at HomeStars for a day who would it be and why?
While challenging, I think it would be great to trade spots with a Business Development Associate at HomeStars. I think our BD’s are incredibly hardworking and from the outside looking in, you can see how they’re a very supportive team. Plus, it would be great to feel the excitement of closing a deal!
What has your career progression been like at HomeStars so far?
My first role at HomeStars was on the Welcome Team. I onboarded new customers and ensured they were set up for success with their new subscription. The company evolved a year later and I became an Account Manager. This role was essential to my career growth at HomeStars. I learned A LOT about our customers, their pain points, their goals and then some. It essentially kicked off my compassion and desire to help our pros further! It was an integral part of my HomeStars journey that I will remember forever.
After that, I joined the marketing team as the B2B content marketing specialist. I was so drawn to the job posting and knew that I had to go for it with my passion for our pros and previous advertising and marketing background. Now a year later, I’m still with the marketing team loving every minute!
What has been your proudest HomeStars moment?
My proudest moment was the launch of the HomeStars Pro Centre in December 2019. As a former Account Manager, I knew first hand the need for this blog and how extremely helpful it would be in not only driving new business but helping our current pros. It was a vision that I helped bring to life from the bottom up and for that, I will be forever grateful!
What is one skill that you would like to master?
I follow a lot of illustrators on social media and I find it absolutely fascinating that some individuals can create such incredible drawings naturally. If I could wake up tomorrow and be an amazing illustrator I would be cool with that!
