A New Life. A New Journey. A New Home.
Picture this. A small town girl, planning her wedding, interviewing for multiple jobs, marrying her middle school sweetheart and moving across the country, all within days of each other… This was me three months ago. Now, I am sure you are thinking, “Is this girl crazy?” No. Not crazy. Just incredibly driven!
After countless Skype interviews with two inspiring teams at Kirvin Doak, I finally landed my first career job on Friday, Oct. 3, 2014. I can remember the day like it was yesterday. I had a very relaxed and fun interview with Brad and Devin (my amazing bosses) where I immediately felt a connection with them. As soon as I got off the Skype call, I knew Kirvin Doak was the place for me. Not ten minutes later I got a phone call from Brad offering me the position as Account Coordinator. I played it cool but the second our conversation ended, tears flooded my eyes and I couldn’t control my excitement. I was finally employed, soon to be working at the top PR agency in Las Vegas and getting married in two weeks. Can you say, “Best timing ever?” My husband Nick and I were moving 2,000 miles away just two days after our wedding! Wait, what? Yes. You heard right! We packed our bags and loaded the car to begin a 25 hour journey to our new home in Las Vegas at 3 a.m. the Monday after our wedding. Life was a little hectic a few short months ago but it made me realize anything and everything is possible in life.
Never in my wildest dreams did I ever picture myself living in Las Vegas. But let me just say this…it was the best decision I have ever made. My KDC family means the world to me. I wake up every morning with a smile on my face knowing I am going to be surrounded by incredible professionals who make it their duty to see that I improve and grow each and every day. It is a real honor to be a part of such a successful, unique and lively PR agency. Not only do I love my job but I love everything that comes with it from the stocked snack room (that I pay a visit to every single day!), the clients, casual work clothes, friendships, #TeamTerri meetings, generous gifts, memories and once in a lifetime opportunities. Kirvin Doak, hands down, is the best place to work. Every day brings a new challenge but here at KDC, nothing stands in our way!
