Account Executive

 


 

Amelia’s Favorites

Book
Recent guilty pleasure, Girl on the Train. I could not put it down.

Happy Place in Nashville
Percy Warner Park

Thing to do on the Weekend
Sunday evening ritual of NetFlix and face masks…. moisturization is a 28-year-old’s best friend.

Childhood Toy
I rode my Huffy Treasure Bike everywhere. We played outside all day and had to come home when the street lights came on.

Piece of Clothing
A white romper I purchased a few years back. Every time I have ever worn it I have the best night ever; so much so, that my friends wanted to borrow it and try it out themselves. It has worked like a charm.

Summer Anthem
I can’t stop listening to “One Dance” by Drake. I know it’s bad, but it is just so damn catchy.


All About Amelia

Where were you born?
I was born in Gulfport, Mississippi. That was the closest hospital to the tiny beachside town, Bay Saint Louis, where my parents met and lived. Shortly after I was born, we moved to Charleston, South Carolina.

What is the most frustrating question, comment, or feedback you get related to work?
“I do not remember talking about that in the last meeting.” … Lucky for you, I am so Type-A that I have 5 bullet points in our notes reiterating the conversation.

What is your favorite tradition?
Opening one present on Christmas eve. It always is a ridiculous set of pajamas from my mom. The whole family then wears their new horrendously tacky pajamas and we watch a Christmas movie together eating way too many treats and consuming copious amounts of wine.

What led you to join the advertising world?
I wanted to work with creative people and constantly be learning and challenged.

What do you look forward to most every day?
Morning runs.

What annoys you?
Tardiness. It killllls me.

Would you rather have your fingers stuck in bottles for a year or a bucket stuck on your head for a year?
Fingers stuck in bottles for a year. It would help me kick my addiction to my iPhone.

Good, Free Fun

Between beach vacations and eating out, summer can get expensive! So we asked some of our team about their favorite free summer activities.

Hammocking

Rachel’s Pick

Find two trees and string up a hammock. Whether it’s an ENO or a good old-fashioned rope hammock, you can’t beat swinging in the shade on a hot summer’s day.

 

Drinking Mojitos Under The Sun

John’s Pick

Pick some mint from your garden and grab your favorite glass; it’s time for porch-sitting and booze-drinking.

Pool Time

Travis and Drew’s Pick

A day spent at the pool is a day well-spent. Also, the only proper way to enter a pool is by cannon ball.

 

Spikeball

Colton’s Pick

What happens went volleyball and trampolines meet? You get spikeball.

 

Boating and Grilling

Amelia’s Pick

This one requires a little cost up front, but if you’ve got a boat, nothing completes a day on the lake like a cookout with friends.

 

Hiking

Cody the Intern’s Pick

Get away from the city and hike through the woods. There are plenty of trails within an hour of Nashville.

 

Trail Running

Erica the Intern’s Pick

If hiking is too tame for you, lace up your shoes and start running. Just don’t trip on any logs.

 

Catching Lightning Bugs

Henry’s Pick

“I love how catching lightning bugs with the kids leads to a fork in the road. We either find a shoe box, build a habitat, and spend hours studying the bugs. Or, we let all the bugs go and diverge into a game of night time freeze tag or kick the can.” – Henry

 

Picnicking

Mary’s Pick

If you’ve never had a picnic with your friends at the Love Circle, what are you even doing with your life?

 

Swing Dancing

Kelsey’s Pick

Every Saturday night in Centennial Park, join a crowd of dancing fools for Big Band Dance.

 

Car Shows

Michael’s Pick

Motor on over to a car show this summer. Marvel at these feats of ingenuity and artistry. You’re sure to have a wheely good time. There’s a fun, free show in August in Chattanooga if you feel like gettin’ outta town.
