When you were 8, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A psychologist working with serial killers. I blame it on being raised by an attorney and a social worker; stories at the dinner table were odd, to say the least.
Now what do you want to be when you grow up?
I want to be happy, working in a job that fulfills me – so hanging out where I am at Castelazo Content.
What is your proudest accomplishment to date?
Raising my girls to be happy, independent and strong-willed little people. They are already smarter than me so, at this point, all I can do is hope to keep up.
What gets you out of bed and in to work in the morning?
Because every day is interesting and I learn something new.

As the Director of Client Relations, I am a reliable voice within the company for clients to turn to with questions. I respond quickly and efficiently to concerns, putting clients at ease. I manage projects so that clients receive their work in a timely manner while my teammates, hopefully, don’t feel overwhelmed. I also handle the billing (and getting paid is always important!).
How does your past experience help you in the work you do for Castelazo Content?
Before coming to work at Castelazo Content, I worked in social services and the non-profit sector. I worked with Alzheimer’s disease patients and their families; having experience working with people who are dealing with end-of-life issues and the slow deterioration and loss of loved ones made me a more caring, patient person. Plus, working for non-profits gave me a deep understanding of the importance of finding creative, innovative ways to do more with less.
