Employee Spotlight: Justine Holt, Campaign Optimization Specialist

Where did you grow up?
Tewksbury, MA

What was your first or strangest job?
I used to work at a pet store and spent a lot of my time cleaning out drawers full of mice and rats. I lost a rat once. It was bad.

What do you like most about your current job?
I like that my job is constantly evolving. We're always trying new things and perfecting our process. Plus, a large part of my role includes cross-collaboration with other teams in the organization which I'm a big fan of.

What is your greatest accomplishment, work or personal?
I have so many goals ahead of me that I'd like to think that one of those will be my greatest accomplishments someday...but I did win an Army recruit push up contest once, so that was neat.

Tell us a fun fact about you.
I became a certified welder when I was 18, although that may be expired now. It was MIG, TIG, arc, oxy-acetylene, and others. I went to a vocational high school and took Metal Fabrication because I thought it was fun. It didn't exactly transfer into my career.

Pick three words to describe yourself.
Caring, light-hearted, and ambitious.

What is one thing on your bucket list?
I would love to do a backpack Europe trip someday. There is a lot in this world to explore and I look forward to those new experiences.

What is your favorite quote?
There's no crying in baseball.

Do you have any hobbies outside of work?
I love to write and do pour paintings. I don't indulge as often as I'd like, but these are some of my favorite things to do in my quiet, free time.

You’re about to perform in a karaoke bar. What song do you pick?
I'd rather do stand up comedy than karaoke and even then I probably wouldn't have the nerves to get up on stage. In any case, I love cheering everyone else on that's brave enough for karaoke!

If you could hang out with anyone for a day, who would it be and why?
I would really like to just hang out with my whole immediate family. We all live far away from each other, so I just think it would be nice to have that time back.
