Introducing our newest team member, Kayla Martin! Get to know Kayla with a quick Q&A:

What is one element of this job you are looking forward to the most?

Being able to work with everyone throughout the agency. I’ve always had an interest in marketing and communications and I think working here in this role will allow me to dip my toe, so to speak, into different areas of learning.

In terms of your career, where do you want to be in five years?

I’d like to have a full time position where I am able to take what I’ve learned and love from administrative work and transition it into project management working in marketing or public relations.

Where is the next place on your travel bucket list and why?

I would say my next destination would be Africa or Australia. You can meet a cheetah at the Australian zoo and that would be an incredible experience to come up close to an animal that is typically out of reach.

What is your quote to live by?

It’s from the film About Time and I often find that I can use it as a daily reminder to appreciate what I have.  “I just try to live every day as if I've deliberately come back to this one day, to enjoy it, as if it was the full final day of my extraordinary, ordinary life.”

If you’re not in the office, what are you doing?

I love puzzles and hanging out with my family. I grew up in Fairport with one younger sister, but I have 19 cousins that all live in the area so I’m usually taking time to catch up with them.

What lead you to Archer?

My favorite animal is a cheetah and to be honest that’s what lead me here. I worked as the public relations director of my college TV station and developed an interest for marketing and communications. I was looking for a place where I could grow in my position and learn more about the field and then I saw the banner on Archer’s building that features a cheetah. I took that as a sign and came in that day to learn more!

 

We are excited to have Kayla join our team and can’t wait to see what she will accomplish here!
