Name: Lindsey Nelson
Title: Account Assistant
Hometown: El Dorado Hills, CA
But I wish I could live in: An apartment that allows pets. But actually, I love where I’m currently living in Midtown Sacramento. The people, the atmosphere, the fact that there’s always something to do — Midtown is a great place to live.
Accounts You Work On: Office of Traffic Safety, 7-Eleven, El Dorado County Water & Power Authority, Aly & Izy…I do a little bit of everything (hence my heavy dependence on coffee!)
My professional superpower: Media Relations…and constructing office furniture from IKEA
Dog or Cat: I currently own neither and love them both, but I am definitely a cat person…to the point where friends have dubbed me the “Cat Whisperer.”
Favorite thing about my job: The people. Everyone from our staff members to our clients to our vendors—these people I get to work with on a daily basis are awesome and are one of the main reasons why I love my job as much as I do.
Favorite Prosio Communications memory (so far): I think my first Teambuilding Thursday will always be one of my favorite memories. It wasn’t anything out of the ordinary, but I just remember looking around at Lori, Kari and Alma and feeling so excited and so thankful to be a part of the team. It was an “a-ha!” moment – this is where I’m meant to be.
My reason to get out of bed in the morning: Coffee. Every morning. Without fail.
I wish it could be this holiday every day: Christmas. You know those obnoxious people who start playing Christmas music and putting up lights the second Thanksgiving is over? I’m one of them.
The “most-played” song on my iPod: “P.Y.T.” by Michael Jackson. But you can find anything from E-40 to the Avett Brothers to Beethoven on there.
A celebrity who would play me in a movie would be: (According to Kari) Lily Rabe from American Horror Story, if we’re going on looks; Jennifer Garner for personality.
The best movie you’ve seen in the last six months: Guardians of the Galaxy. I’m a sucker for Marvel films.
Your three favorite books of all time: In no particular order…”The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein, “The Things They Carried” by Tim O’Brien and “The Da Vinci Code” by Dan Brown.
If I had to be a beverage, I’d be a: Panic IPA from Track 7. One of my favorites! Bold, well-balanced and from Sacramento.
If I could dis-invent one thing, it would be: Autotune. It’s WAY overdone.
I’m most proud of: My choices thus far…my degree, my job, my relationships. It took a lot of hard work, but everything has started to fall into place.
