Position(s) held at CWH
Social Media Specialist
What brand(s) do you work for?
What other teams do you work with the most?
I work very closely with the Engagement and Influencer Management within my current social media team. Outside of social, I work closely with the Design team in order to maintain visual brand consistency across all platforms.
What is your favorite thing about your job and why?
When I first started working on the Good Sam brand, I was amazed at the amount of creative freedom I was given by my team. It's something I had always desired in previous positions at other companies but felt like I was being held back a bit. It's so relieving to have trust, open communication, and collaboration within my current team and makes me that more excited to get to work at Camping World every day with authentic and invested individuals!
What made you interested in working in the outdoor recreation industry?
I lived in Denver for 2.5 years before moving to Chicago. I absolutely loved my time there, but realized I had taken advantage of the incredible geographic location once I moved back to the MidWest and no longer had mountains at my doorstep. In my personal opinion, moments shared outdoors soothe the soul and that's a feeling I'll continue to long for, and wish to help others experience, through this brand!
How has Camping World Holdings helped you succeed as a woman in the workplace? How is this different than other companies you have worked at?
Right off the bat, Camping World proved to have exceptional diversity working within the brands. My previous company was primarily dominated by men, and as a woman in that workplace, I, unfortunately, felt like I didn't have much of a say. Now I get to work with both men and women who build me up, and although all are successful, the women around me, in particular, are incredibly driven and inspiring. It's an amazing feeling to see multiple women who have previously succeeded and continue to succeed within this company because they paved the way for other women like me to do the same.
What advice would you offer other women who are interested in a career at a Camping World Holdings brand?
Got for it! Hopefully, these pages will prove to you that regardless of your gender, anyone and everyone can succeed here if you put your mind to it and are invested. There are thousands of women at Camping World who are living proof of that!
