We are at it again, we’ve expanded our team by one more! We are happy to introduce Anna Hazelwood to our art department as Junior Front End Developer. We sat down with Anna to get the inside scoop on work, life, and a few of her favorite things.

What excites you most about this role?

The team mentality along with the positive and open environment is exciting to me. It’s an interesting experience moving from a much larger company to a smaller setting where the focus is quality over quantity. I’m eager to contribute to client success!

What is your past experience with marketing and design?

I’ve been a web project coordinator and a web support specialist. In school, my courses were geared toward print and graphic design, but the digital age was fully upon us when I graduated and so I learned hands-on through my work how to handle web development, hosting, domains, and much more.

Where do you hope to be in your professional life in 5 years?

Moving forward ideally I’d like to immerse myself more in understanding the back end of web development and software development. I’m curious about how to create not only a design that resonates with the client, but also works to meet every one of their needs.

What is your go to activity when you’re not at work?

I love getting together with friends to enjoy the outdoors and explore local scenery. Spending my days inside has made me appreciate the ability to get out and embrace my natural surroundings.

If you had to pick a quote to live by what would it be?

I have so many, but most of them are from Harry Potter. If I had to pick one it would be, “It is our choices, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”

What’s one interesting fact about you?

My favorite holiday is Halloween. I take it pretty seriously and love taking the time to create my own costumes. I usually keep it a secret so come halloween it’s great to see people reacting to what I’ve made.

We are happy to have Anna join our team and can’t wait to see what contributions she’ll make - oh and stay tuned for her Halloween costume!

Anna’s a life-long Harry Potter fan and believes there is room in everyday to quote Mean Girls. Put her skills to the test or get to know more by sending your questions to her via email at ahazelwood@archercom.com.
