What's your role at Screencastify?
I'm a Success Manager!
Why did you choose to work at Screencastify?
I’m a former classroom teacher; when I decided to transition out of the classroom, I knew I wanted to stay in the education field. I was drawn to Screencastify because I loved the extension and how it made incorporating technology and video into the classroom so easy and intuitive! I was especially excited about the role of Success Manager because it allows me to continue working with teachers and educators who use this product every day. I love helping people and answering questions, and I’m so excited to continue doing that through Screencastify.
Tell us something about you that not many people know.
My undergraduate degree is in Television Writing. Television is one of my favorite forms of entertainment media, and I watch it all! Kid shows, prime-time dramas, true crime documentaries, sit-coms, prestige TV, you name it, I’ve probably seen at least an episode or two of it!
Where would you like to travel next and why?
I feel a really strong sense of community, so when I travel I like to visit family or friends who live in other places. Next on my list would be Mexico City to visit an American expat friend from college. She always tells me amazing stories about the culture and community in CDMX and I’ve been itching to visit her ever since she moved! That trip will be my top post-pandemic priority.
What's the best part about working at Screencastify?
Absolutely the culture and community Screencastify has created. Not just my coworkers (who are amazing), but the team of users who make Screencastify what it is! Seeing the excitement and engagement from other educators makes me so happy to be on the Screencastify team.
What is your favorite go-to snack?
Pizza flavored Goldfish are my absolute jam. Not every store carries them, so it’s always a nice treat when I do find them!
Any words of wisdom for all the Screencastifiers out there?
Have fun playing around with the features and tools, and don’t be afraid to ask questions--the Success Team is here to help you get the most out of our product, and we’re always here to help!
