Meet Isabella Adelson, SMZ’s new Account Coordinator. Welcome, Izzie.
What was your first job? And what did you learn from it?
Cashier at a local supermarket. I learned the importance of interacting with customers and sparking conversation. I met some incredible people, and even was told I made their day just by being friendly!
How do you stay inspired?
I enjoy looking through advertising blogs to see exciting work that’s being produced. Seeing impactful campaigns always motivates me to continue working hard to create powerful work.
What’s a brand you can’t live without and why?
Since I’m a night owl, Starbucks products are my lifeline — you’ll rarely catch me without one in my hand!
What’s the best piece of career advice you’ve received?
To go back to school part time. I started working towards my MBA during the pandemic and it’s opened my eyes to how much more there’s to learn about the business world.
What’s your go-to karaoke song?
Singing “Life Is a Highway” with my friends in Nashville is a memory I’ll never forget!
If you could have a super power what would it be?
Teleportation — sitting in traffic isn’t exactly my favorite pastime.
