Social media is such a great way for businesses to really interact with and get to know their customers and following. We even interact with some of you on a daily basis. We email about orders, answer questions, offer contests, and even get personal with you on our facebook page. In the world of the internet, we interact online daily with people that they don’t really know much about. So, we thought we would give you an inside look at the faces behind the names.
This week we are getting to know ME, Brooke. I am coming up on my one year anniversary of being the social media coordinator for Taylor Joelle Designs. I am often the main person that you will see on our facebook page, Pinterest, Google+, Twitter, and here on the blog. I have loved getting to know all of you. I had the hardest time finding a picture of myself to share. I am often behind the camera rather than in front of it. Photography has become a hobby of mine since the spring when you all helped me to choose which DSLR camera to own. But, I did find a picture that we used for our Christmas card last year. That shows me that I need to try and get in front of the camera a little more often.
So, here is a little about me. I have a beautiful 1 and a half year old daughter. I was born and raised in Utah and love it here. The winters are a little rough since I hate to be cold. But, it is so beautiful here year round, that I am willing to be cold. I graduated from the University of Utah and am a Utes fan through and through.
A few “fun facts” about me: I have been a vegetarian since I was 3 years old and went to a local farm with my family. Well, I at least stopped liking to eat meat at that point. My parents stopped trying to make me eat it at age 14. I go by my middle name, which is Brooke, and not many people know my first name. I have short little thumbs that are caused by a something known as brachydactyly type D, which I have heard comes from having royal blood lines (at least that is what I like to tell myself). I was hit by a car on two different occasions as a child (apparently I never learned to look both ways) and survived, and this summer I survived a dissected artery which lead to multiple strokes at age 28 (don’t worry, I am ok now).
Enough about me… tell me about you!
