Behind the E

It takes all kinds of personalities to make a creative agency like ours click.
In our “Meet the E Team” series, we select a teammate to profile, giving you a peek at the people of Ethos.



Position: Art Director

Favorite Food: Queso and Mountain Dew

Hobby: I love going to outdoor concerts — mainly because I like having space to sing and dance.

Age: 36


What did you want to be when you grew up?

I always wanted to be a teacher because I loved my kindergarten teacher, Miss Watlington, so much. I was in Future Teachers of America in high school and went to Appalachian State for teaching. Good thing I switched majors — I love what I do and can’t imagine doing anything else.


Favorite High School memory?

Freshman year. It sounds crazy, because most people hate their first year of high school, but mine was exceptional because my brother was a senior. He played football, I cheered and his friends were my friends. I was really lucky to have a big brother to look out for me and let me tag along.


Little known fact?

I have never eaten a pickle — EVER!!! I know, I’m weird. I could write a book about the things I don’t eat. It would probably make for an interesting coffee table book. haha


Brush with celebrity?

I won backstage passes to meet Gwen Stefani and almost got kicked out for taking too many photos. I also got on an elevator once with Adam Duritz, lead singer for Counting Crows.


Anything you are deathly afraid of?
