Can you tell us more about what you do at YourMechanic?
I am a Product Marketing and Communications Specialist here at YourMechanic. I handle all mechanic communications, such as newsletters, social media posts, policy changes, and feature releases. I focus on offering structure and guidance to mechanics while they are repairing cars. I recently turned my attention to our new mechanic on-boarding program called YourMechanic JumpStart.
Why did you join YourMechanic?
I originally joined YourMechanic as a Customer Support Agent. I took the job to support myself while in college. But, as I began to learn more about business structure, I fell in love with the hustle of startup culture. Now three years later, I am still here helping lead disruption in the automotive industry.
What was your first car and what do you love or hate about it?
My first car was a white 1998 Saturn SL2, and I genuinely miss it. My current car has more bells and whistles, but I would trade it all not to have a car payment.
What are you passionate about?
The list of what I am passionate about grows as I grow as a person. Right now, I am excited about removing the stigma of mental health from the black community.
Describe yourself in one word.
Dope. A word that describes something that is extremely cool, such as music, clothes, people, etc.
