Meet Our Intern, Cary!

Cary is going to be our new marketing intern this fall! She will be assisting us with a variety of things such as social media posts, blog updates, and even photo shoots! We thought a little Q&A would be a perfect way for you to get to know a little bit about her.

Where do you go to school?
Currently, I’m a senior at Missouri State University and my major is in Business and Marketing Management. I’m set to graduate May of 2018 and I could not be more excited!
Where are you from?
I consider Springfield my “hometown” if you will, even though I wasn’t born here. My parents traveled a lot when I was younger so I was actually born in Florida and lived in Arkansas for a few years. But I’ve always thought of Springfield as my home.
How do you spend your free time?
I am a lazy Sunday type of person, if that makes sense. I love hanging out around the house, cleaning, maybe reading a good book. I like having a day once a week just to have nothing to do (although, there’s always something) but I wouldn’t call myself a homebody. I just like being at home away from the hustle and bustle of people if I can find the time for it.
What was the last gift you gave someone?
I just got engaged a few months ago so I recently gave out a bunch of gifts to my four best friends asking them to be my bridesmaids. Thankfully, they all said yes!
What’s your favorite 90’s jam?
I still jam out to Britney Spears like nobody’s business. Her music never gets old and my friends and I have an unusual obsession with her song, Lucky.
What do you think about when you’re alone in the car?
Well when I’m not blasting Britney Spears (seriously, I love her) I’ve been thinking about how beautiful it is here in the Ozark’s. The drive from Springfield to Branson is lined with the most breathtaking views if you really pay attention. It’s all I can do to focus on the road and not get distracted by the scenery.
What are you known for?
I’m definitely known for being OBSESSED with my dog. His name is Loki and he’s a black German Shepherd. He’s perfect. Seriously, 100 lbs of furry perfection. No matter how big or old he gets, he will always be my “little guy” and that’ll never change. See? Obsessed.
How lucky are you and why?
I consider myself crazy lucky. I have a wonderful family, a great circle of friends, and a roof over my head. I can’t complain.
If you were 80 years old, what would you tell your children?
I’d tell them to embrace change. You never stop changing, growing, and adapting. Every day brings something new. If you would have asked me a couple months ago what I thought I’d be doing right this minute, I probably wouldn’t have said that I would be doing a Q&A for my new internship. You have to seize opportunities as they come and you’ll never do that if you’re scared of change.
What came first, the chicken or the egg?
EGG! Definitely the egg.
