Now introducing our second round of Brains and Brawn! The ladies of ARG are just so smart that we can’t fill the blog with all of them at once! Without further ado, we introduce to you more skaters that use all their muscles. Especially that big one between their ears!
The Merchant of Menace, Amelia Scareheart, Cobra Camanda, and I are medical editors for a medical communications company that specializes in oncology/hematology. Menace, Cobra, and I are Board Certified Editors in the Life Sciences and Amelia is sitting for the certification exam this year. Menace, Amelia, and I work for the medical education branch of the company…our programs educate community oncologists and hematologists all over the world on the new and upcoming treatments and treatment strategies for all types of cancer (both solid tumors and hematologic malignancies). Cobra works for the promotional side of our company, the side that helps inform the public on the new treatments and treatment strategies, as well as preparing the thought leaders in the field on how to accurately communicate the information about said treatments and treatment strategies. We are tasked with content editing, copy editing, and fact checking of medical communication/data presented in various media, such as PowerPoint slide presentations for our symposia and advisory boards held at major medical conferences, manuscripts that are submitted to peer-reviewed medical journal, medical monographs, and conference coverage newsletters. Additionally, Menace, Amelia, and I are tasked with helping Tanya Hyde, our Senior Web Developer, manage the content on our online education website. In the first three quarters of 2015, the live meeting projects that Amelia, Menace, and I worked on impacted a potential 289,089 patients (and this does not include all the online education we worked on, as well).
We do daily in-office work outs, which include planks, wall sits, sit ups, lunges, push ups, tricep dips, and various other core and leg strengthening exercises, topped off with attempts to do the worm at the end of the workout.
I work in digital advertising sales- I started in sales after graduate school about 8 years ago ( I have my Masters in Communication & Rhetoric, but I did not need it for my job ). My official title is Southeast Sales Director which means I am responsible for growing revenue and business development for the Southeast. I work in native advertising technology and my day-to-day life consists of working with major brands and their ad agencies to help develop strategic native advertising campaigns. I travel around the Southeast to brand headquarters and work with their ad agencies. A few of my clients are Lowes, Coca-Cola, Delta, Universal Orlando, Disney, Nissan, Mercedes, & At&T. Native advertising includes content that is sponsored or developed by a brand. Content can be in the form of quizzes, lists, long-form articles, infographics or videos.
I’m a developer with a marketing technology company – my focus is on back-end development (wizards behind the curtain) with Sitecore for a variety of corporate sites with a lot of data interaction. I bring that forward and manipulate it for the visitors. I have a degree in CS (and Psychology). I’ve been working in the field since 2003 (LAMP to .Net currently), and I’m the only female developer at my company.
Favourite workout – SKATING. Or weightlifting/plyo/footwork things.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor working as a Clinical Manager at the Administrative Services Organization for the State of Georgia’s Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities. The teams I lead ensure that individuals throughout the state of Georgia gain access to necessary behavioral health services. My role includes supervision of a large team, data analysis and reporting, and interfacing with community providers and state leaders. I easily work 50 hours a week in addition to derby and competitive powerlifting.
My favorite workouts involve “moving heavy s*#!”. I train with Team Rohr (http://www.teamrohr.com/) two nights per week, garage train two nights and one weekend day and run roughly three miles 3 days per week on my lunch break through the streets of Downtown Atlanta.
