The frank Agency is excited to welcome Caroline Brown as a new Account Representative! To help us get to know Caroline better, we asked her a few questions about her background and personal interests – as well as what she is looking forward to in her time at TfA.
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? How did that pan out for you? Hilariously enough, I was dead-set on being a veterinarian. I grew up riding horses and watching Animal Planet, and I thought working with animals was my dream. When I finally got around to taking biology in high school (and hated it), I realized I might have to reassess.
How did you choose (or end up in) the world of advertising? I was always interested in marketing and advertising; at Mizzou they lump them under “Strategic Communications” with public relations and a few other things. I love that being an Account Representative combines what I’m interested in with a human element, allowing me to focus on building relationships with clients.
What initially drew you to The frank Agency? Apart from really loving the Kansas City area, I was drawn to the smaller size of TfA. It was important for me to find somewhere that I felt I could grow and learn, and so far this is definitely the right place for that.
What are you looking forward to in your position at The frank Agency? I’m looking forward to settling in – and learning to use the espresso machine!
Let’s get a little personal now.
Have you spent time abroad? I took classes and interned abroad in London over the summer of 2015. It was arguably one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. The city is so vibrant, and there’s always something interesting going on.
Any unique-but-silly talents? I know a lot of “fun facts.” You’ll catch me slipping them into conversation without even noticing. For instance, I can tell you the breed (and characteristics of the breed) for almost any dog.
What about embarrassing or unusual interests? I’m not sure it’s unusual, but I’m a total sci-fi nerd. From TV and movies to comics and books, I love it all. As for embarrassing, I love terrible horror movies. Anything with a cheesy title and less than 2 stars on Netflix is right up my alley.
Desert Island Top Five: If you were stuck on an island, what are the top five movies or books would you want to bring? For movies, I’d have to go with Legally Blonde and Heathers, because I could watch them every day. For books, a book of Shakespeare’s plays (which may or may not be cheating) and A Feast for Crows, so maybe I’ll finally finish it. Lastly, I’d have to have my trusty Battlestar Galactica box set.
Please join us in welcoming Caroline to The frank Agency!
