Employee Spotlight: Courtney

Help us welcome our newest employee, Courtney Killian! Courtney is joining our account service team as an Account Executive. She hails from Amarillo, graduated from San Angelo State University, but is happy to now call Lubbock home. We know she’ll fit right in around the office because she’s a Lord of the Rings fan. Welcome to the team, Courtney!

What did you want to be when you grew up?

If there was a movie produced about your life, who would play you and why?
Elizabeth Taylor because she was sassy. 

What’s your favorite current TV show?
Downton Abbey

What would you do if you didn’t work in advertising?
Book or magazine editor.  Or a trophy wife…just kidding.
But not really. 

What was your strangest previous job?
I’ve never had a strange job… but the funnest job I ever had was a cart girl at the country club one summer.

What’s the greatest lesson you’ve ever learned?
Take pride in yourself!

Who is/was your most valued mentor?
My parents 

What’s your favorite song or who is your favorite band right now?
Black Keys 

What’s the most money you’ve ever drunkenly spent at McDonald’s?
Probably Whataburger instead of McDonald’s…and money has no limits at a drunken 2 a.m. pickup. 

What’s your guilty pleasure?
Pride and Prejudice – the PBS version with Colin Firth. Wheat Thins. The Chive. My JRR Tolkien and Shakespeare tattoos.  :) 

What do you hope to teach people?
Sarcasm can be a noble attribute.

What are you secretly good at?

What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Traveling the world. I studied abroad in Europe one summer in college and loved it.

I think we can all agree the Hobbit shouldn’t have been made in three movies. But the question is, should it have been 2? or 6?
Eh, one.  I mean it was written for children after all…nowhere near the epic like LOTR.

What book are you currently reading?
Far from the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy

Kliff or Mike Leach?
Kliff, for obvious reasons. 

What was the last picture you took on your phone?
My weenie dog :)
