Gladiator (Marketing Manager)

Addie is our superhero Brand & Marketing Manager. She pretty much lives on the web, and enjoys every moment of it. She loves keeping in touch with people, working with tech, exploring new tools and apps, and improving on her already black belt in AdWords and Analytics. When the going gets salty, she always stays sweet and bounces right back to help out.

  • FAVE QUOTE. Either I will find a way, or I will make one.
  • WE MOMENT. I knew I wanted to be a part of WE as soon as I started understanding what WE do for Gen Y. As a big spender myself, I've had my fair share of adventures with credit card debt and loans. Yikes. I only wish there had been someone like them to guide me through then; it would have saved a lot of time, money and stress. I will support this project with all I've got. I want young people to be financially fit and make their life choices free, not under the pressure of a financial burden.
  • PROUD AS PUNCH. The thing I'm most proud of is becoming aware of and embracing the idea that rock bottom is just the extraordinary chance to start over better and stronger.
  • 20 YEAR OLD SELF. The advice I'd give my 20-year old self is travel more, experience all you can, always spend less than you make, keep an open mind.
  • EMBARRASSING MOMENT. My most embarrassing moment to date is having a nurse take off all my clothes for the appendectomy, while the room was filling with med students on their surgery rotation. :)
  • TRUE TALL POPPY. I always thought someone inspiring is supposed to show up and give you the guidance and motivation to create awesome stuff. Then I realised people would look up to me for guidance and motivation, so, funny enough, I had to become the person I was waiting for.
  • PERFECT WEEKEND. Working on a community development project. It's meaningful and energising. On breaks, I'd be walking my dogs to refresh and shuffle ideas.
  • $20 PERFECT DATE. Negotiate a $20 paragliding experience for two.
  • BA Communications & Public Relations
  • MSc Digital Marketing
  • Google AdWords and Analytics Certified Professional
