Fashion is her other passion: Meet Steph!
Follow the yellow brick road to meet the wizards behind the curtain at Accelity! We might not practice magic, but we can make content appear in the blink of an eye. In this blog series, we will feature one of our talented team members so you can see what we are all about. This month’s star is Steph Spickler!
How has Accelity helped your career development?
After spending 4 years in marketing at a large health system, I wanted to challenge myself and grow my knowledge of digital marketing. Accelity places LOTS of emphasis on professional development and growth. (I’ve already learned soooo much in the short time I’ve been here!)
What do you like most about working at Accelity?
The peeps! Everyone on the team is so talented, outgoing and welcoming. They’re not just coworkers; they’re friends.
Who inspires you?
My family. We’ve gone through some tough sh*t, but continue to become stronger, closer and more empathetic people because of it. It’s not what happens to you but how you choose to handle it that makes all the difference.
What’s your secret talent?
Not many people know that I can play the piano and alto saxophone. I’d have to brush up on my skills…but I can still play some songs by ear/muscle memory!
If you weren’t in marketing, what would your second career choice be?
I used to want to be a forensic scientist…then an interior designer…my interests are all over the board! BUT the dream is to own my own clothing boutique. I plan to work towards that while still working in marketing.
What is your hometown known most for?
Here’s my shameless Rockford, IL tourism plug! I’d say we’re most known for:
- Delicious local food (Rockfordians are foodies! If you haven’t had Beef-a-roo, Lino’s pizza or Mrs. Fisher’s potato chips…you’re missing out)
- Attractions like Anderson Japanese Gardens, the Burpee Museum, and Coronado Performing Arts Center
- And some famous friends who call Rockford home (name dropping starts now): Cheap Trick, Michelle Williams from Destiny’s Child, Fred VanVleet, Ira Matthews, Dean Lowery…to name a few
If a friend/colleague were to bump into you in public, where would you most likely be?
Most likely at a local restaurant/bar for dinner and drinks with friends, at a Chicago sporting event (Go Cubs Go)…or out shopping 🙂
