01 Jun Meet Marie: Our Social Media Specialist
A few weeks ago we added Marie to our team here at EmPower. She grew up near Mt. Rainier in Washington and moved to Portland five years ago for school. She will be working as the Social Media Specialist for both of our companies. We decided to ask her a few questions so that you could get to know her a bit more. Welcome to the team Marie!
- What are you most excited about working for EmPower?
- I am excited to grow personally and professionally while doing work that I love. From day one I felt extremely welcomed and loved by the rest of the EmPower team. I am so excited to bring my knowledge and skills to the company.
- Where is your favorite place in the world?
- Whistler, Canada. I grew up vacationing there with my family; spending time hiking, biking, and adventuring.
- What do you like do in your freetime?
- In my free time I love to do anything that gets me outside. Whether that be trail running, hiking, biking, skiing, rock climbing, or mountaineering. Spending time outside is what keeps me feeling full of life.
- What are you passionate about?
- I am passionate about so many magical things that this life has to offer. Veganism has played a large roll in my personal development. It speaks to my passions of preserving our planet, health/ wellness, and showing compassion for all beings. I am also passionate about inspiring others to be the most authentic version of themselves; to practice self-love and be proud of who they truly are.
- Who inspires you?
- Leaders of social justice movements. People say that one person can’t make a difference but I just don’t buy that. Every movement, idea, and project has started with one person. One person who was wild enough to believe that they could make a positive change in this world.
