Q&A with Anya
What Does a “Day in the Life” Look Like in Your Role?
“I wake up at six so I can have an hour to drink my coffee and hang out with my cat. Then I go to the office to start at seven-thirty. I’ll usually start with some of the simpler tasks to get going and ease into the day. Then, I’ll go over how my clients are doing and think about if I need to change up my strategy and marinate on that.”
What Do You Love Most About Your Job?
“What I like most about my job is the people. I really, really love my coworkers. There is not a single person at this company that I don’t enjoy talking to. I definitely love the culture here.”
What is Your Favorite Project You’ve Worked on at Market My Market?
“I really like doing the pre- and post-migration checks for websites. I like to make sure links are working, and design elements aren’t overlapping with each other. It’s important to make sure the website still works after it’s been migrated to WP Engine or any other platform.”
Describe Your Perfect Saturday
“I wake up, and there’s a rainstorm, and I’d watch an old movie like the Audrey Hepburn Sabrina, for instance. I did that last Saturday. Then, I’d go to brunch with some friends. After, I’d take a nap, read a little bit, and then go out for drinks. Hopefully, I’d end up at a diner at two in the morning. That’s what I’d do.”
What Do You Do to Wind Down After a Long Day?
“I watch a lot of Buzzfeed Unsolved. I also read a lot, do some creative writing, cuddle with Willow.”
What Do You Enjoy Doing in Your Spare Time?
“I really like to paint. I’m not very good at it, but it’s very relaxing. I also really love to swim, and I’m super into movies. I don’t know if that counts as a hobby, but I’ve studied them. I also write a lot and do adult coloring books.”
What is Something Most People Don’t Know About You?
“I’m really into mixology–like amateur bartending.”
Where Do You See Yourself in Five Years?
“That’s a good question. I have no idea. Hopefully, I would like to be a little bit more in the creative space. So maybe more on the design part of website migration or doing some writing.”
