Casey Dunphy has spent most of her career leading backpacking, kayaking, and rafting trips through the Southeast, and is already bringing wild ideas to the table in her new role as Account Coordinator.
Casey’s background in field marketing for national brands, matched with her leadership skills, and bubbly personality, make for a natural fit for Parachute.
“I love working in an environment where every day is different. There will always be more to learn and it’s rewarding to complete a project that I am proud of.”
When Casey’s not at work, you can find her with a paddle in hand or with hiking boots on her feet… or drinking wine on her patio, planning her next adventure.
What is something quirky about you?
We had a pet buffalo growing up — Buddy the buffalo. My sister and I would put on our matching overalls and feed him sugar cubes and bottle feed him.
Are you serious?
Who is one of your professional heros and why?
I don’t have a famous professional hero. The people I have been most motivated by throughout my career tend to be my immediate co-workers and direct supervisors. I love being part of a great team and being inspired by people around me doing amazing work.
What is your favorite quote?
“Whatever you are by nature, keep to it; never desert your line of talent. Be what nature intended for you, and you will succeed.” – Sydney Smith
What’s the strategy behind your blog writing process?
Start with great images! That is usually what suckers me into wanting to learn more about something, so I try to think that way when I write something too.
What sparked your interest in social media?
I majored in English at Florida State University, and managed the social media for the Campus Recreation Department. That was my first time working in a social media position. I thought it was so much fun. It’s fast paced, interactive, and a great way to connect a big company/organization to the consumer.
If you could Skype with anyone living or dead, who would it be?
My grandparents. They traveled the entire world and accomplished so many things throughout their lifetime. I was close to them while they were alive, but I wish I would have asked more questions.
