Q&A with Gina

Gina Smith is the new account executive we didn’t know we needed. While she is fairly new to the marketing industry, she is already well-versed in the world of work, having worked throughout her school and varsity career. We’re excited to see her grow into the role. You can learn a little more about her in her Q&A below.
What is your position in the YD team? 

I have just been appointed as an Account Executive.

What part of your job do you enjoy most?

I am looking forward to working with the team and working with a bunch of different clients, helping them to achieve their brief objectives. 

What part of your role do you find the most challenging?

I haven’t encountered any challenges yet, but I’m sure there will be some along the way. I’m excited to be challenged and learn through those challenges. 

What do you enjoy most about being part of the YD team?

Everyone is so kind and helpful. 

First job I’ve started and I was more excited than nervous to start!

What do you do when you’re stuck for inspiration?

I am utterly obsessed with Pinterest and spend a lot of time scrolling and reading articles. I also enjoy getting out in nature for a hike, walk or some yoga.

What is your pre-work routine?

  • Wake up 
  • Tune into a podcast 
  • Shower 
  • Make a smoothie
  • Head to work

If you could be any superhero, who would you be and why?

I would have to say Black Widow because her powers include resistance to disease (hello, no more mask wearing or potential doctors’ bills, thank you) and ageing. She’s a master athlete and a great leader! She just seems like an overall badass! Back her. 

What’s your favourite way to spend a weekend?

My ideal weekend would include a trip to the beach, outdoor activities and some red wine.

What music do you like to listen to while working?

I love more than one genre of music, depends on my mood while working. I am currently listening to alternative/indie (Tame Impala).

Introvert or extrovert?

I would say it depends but more of an extrovert as I’m outgoing and generally quite confident.   

Cats or dogs?

Dogs but I like cats as well, just never owned one.

Shoes or barefoot?

I have an impressive shoe collection, but I’d prefer to be barefoot all day, every day.

Pizza or salad, or neither?

Pizza for sure, my mom’s Italian so pasta and pizza are musts!
