Say Hello to Jade!
We’re excited to welcome Jade to our team as a summer intern! Learn a little more about her in the interview below.
Tell us a little about yourself.
I was born in Irvine, CA but spent most of my life in Washington State so I consider myself a friendly, neighborhood Washingtonian. I graduated from Western Washington University in June with a major in Communication Studies and a minor in Film Studies. I started working at Revolution just one day after I moved from Bellingham, WA to Woodinville, WA.
There are a lot of PR agencies out there, why did you pick Revolution?
While on a job hunt about 6 months ago, I stumbled across Revolution and immediately fell in love. I picked Revolution because it’s not every day that you meet an entire team of positive movers and shakers. I knew that the inviting and upbeat environment that this team cultivates was a space that I could thrive in. It was definitely a “Hell, Yes!” moment when I met the entire team for the first time.
What attracted you to pursue PR as a career?
A few years ago, I learned that one of my core desires is to feel connected. Therefore, I knew that I wanted a career where I could create a plethora of relationships. I also have a passion for storytelling and film so I put those together and gravitated towards PR.
We’re an agency of self-proclaimed wellness junkies! What is your favorite trend in the wellness space right now?
I love to spend my time bustling around and being outside. Although I live for the hustle, I am working on adopting a “more flow, less hustle” mindset. I am a huge advocate of balance, and I find that I don’t work to my best capabilities when I’m rushing. To slow down, I’ve been taking the time to read a good book, soak in the bathtub, and get a full night’s sleep.
Is there a workout that you’re loving right now?
Trail running is always my favorite way to sweat. It’s a surefire way to stay strong while also serving as a time for me to get away from reality for a hot second. There’s something special about running on a trail and hearing the crunch of rocks and dirt under my shoes. I’ve also recently started CrossFit which is incredibly intimidating to me but also exhilarating. Overall, I love presenting myself with new challenges in my fitness routine whenever I can.
One of our biggest motivations when it comes to exercise is being able to sport cute active wear! Is there a specific item that you’re particularly obsessed with these days?
Shoes are my favorite piece of an outfit, and I have a strange addiction to sneakers that I can never shake off. I love having sneakers of different colors and textures to dress up and dress down. I currently own 19 pairs of sneakers that I wear for all types of outings.
If you had to choose one thing that you are most passionate about, what would it be and why?
I am most passionate about the relationships that I have with various people in my life. It’s fascinating and exciting to me that every person has a different story. I love connecting with people, sharing stories, and being part of group.
