Team Shout-out for October: Kara Kacmarcik!

By October 25, 2013Team

Straight from our East Coast office, Kara Kacmarcik, a Senior Account Manager, gives us the lowdown.  As a client strategist, mother of two, loving wife, Kara gives a whole new meaning to the term “multitasker”,especially since she is also in the process of building a new house.

BTM: What’s the last website you visited?

Facebook (busted)

BTM: Where did you spend your last vacation?kara_columbus_day_1

Kennebunkport, ME with the family, and staying at my parent’s house.  Beach. Fireworks. Lobster. Kids. Free place to stay. ‘nough said.

BTM: Items on your Bucket List.

  1. Attending all four Grand Slam tennis tournaments (Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, and the US Open).  So far I can only cross one off my list.
  2. Completing an Ironman.

BTM: Books on your nightstand.

Elin Hilderbrand’s latest. (Now I just need to go to bed early enough to actually read it.)

BTM: One lesson from childhood you still live by today.

Work hard. Play hard. You don’t always win. That’s what makes victory so sweet.

BTM: You would never leave home without…

My phone (duh). And when applicable, my kids!

BTM: What’s for dinner tonight?

Whatever the local catering company has in the Prepared Foods case (hey, it’s homemade; it just wasn’t made in my home).

BTM: One sport you wish you had time for.

Tennis

BTM: A secret clients should know about you.  True or False.

My husband thinks I have a “jacket” problem. I think its more of a “closet space” problem.

BTM: Day to day routine at Blue Tent.

  • Drop the kids off at school/daycare.
  • Get in a quick 5-miler.
  • Help clients “win on the web” all day long
  • Race to get the kids so as not to be the last mom to pick up.
  • I’ve also been known to end the day back at the computer to finish things after the household goes to sleep.

BTM: Favorite aspect of your role.

Being able to look at things from the client’s perspective, because I used to be one!

BTM: One vice.

French Fries

BTM: Favorite libation.

California Cab

BTM: How do you use flex time?

The last time I used flex time I surprised my daughter at school and took her to Six Flags amusement park for the afternoon.  We had a blast! (Definitely was in need of my above referenced “favorite libation” by the time that day was over!)

BTM: If you could work remotely from anywhere, where would it be?

The Beach.

BTM: Favorite way to unwind.

Go for a run.

BTM: If you could meet one person past, present, future, who would it be?

JFK

BTM: Favorite place in the world.

With good friends and family.

BTM: Three words coworkers would use to describe you.

I only need one: over-caffeinated.
