This week, we had a visit from Grace, the charming, curious daughter of a Turell Group friend and client, Nikki Thaut from Willamette Valley Cancer Institute. Grace had a school assignment, to explore a career she was interested in and she chose us! (Seriously, if 10-year-olds think you’re cool, you are cool.)
Explaining social media, PR and marketing isn’t always easy and the thought of giving young Grace a glimpse into my job in just a few minutes seemed daunting. Luckily, Cres has a knack for entertaining the kiddos (my seven-year-old agrees, too). He had a camera, a headset and a very cool “wanted” poster template ready to go.
When he finished his graphic design and photo editing software demo, he sent the file to me so Grace and I could post it to the Turell Group Facebook Page. You can check that out here.
She also got a tour of web editing from Kurt.
As Cres, Kurt and I demonstrated, Grace asked questions about our jobs — what did we like, did we have to go to college, and what would we rather do if we could do anything. The 4-1-1 is Cres wants to be an astronaut, by the way.
We look forward to seeing how Grace’s project turns out. In the meantime, you can see our photos of her visit.
