Want something done right? Ask a busy person like Jesse Myers, Account Manager in our Fargo office.
She takes care of all account management details for five clients, working to make sure that our projects from our clients get done. “I deliver projects to my Flint team colleagues, shepherd the projects through and present projects to our clients. I also strive to keep my team members and clients happy and excited about future projects,” Jesse says.
Away from work, Jesse likes working out, going out and staying in to study. She is earning her graduate degree in business/strategic leadership from The University of Mary, and expects to graduate in December 2012.
She says: “Being in school and working full-time, I must be organized and disciplined. Especially since I was out of school for two years prior to going back. I knew I wanted to go to grad school at some point in my life, I just needed to find the program that best fit me and what would help me grow with my current position.
“I spend most of my nights reading or doing assignments. But I’m learning valuable information that I share with my colleagues and our clients, and I know I will be happy in the end when I am finished with my degree.”
“I am also active in the Fargo-Moorhead Young Professionals Network (YPN), which takes up some of my time outside of work,” Jesse says. “I am most active with the Personal Development Committee. That started when a lady who I worked with on a pro-bono event invited me to get involved. I started in Aug 2011 and so far I really enjoy it.”
Pump up the volume
“Weeknights, If I don’t have class or homework, I go to the gym for a workout. I attend a ‘body pump’ weightlifting class twice a week with some of my colleagues. It is a great way to relieve some stress and keep my head clear. I also try to make dinner if I have enough time. I also enjoy spending time with my boyfriend if I can squeeze him in,” Jesse says with a wry smile.
“I do try to go out with friends at least once during the weekend. Sometimes that means watching NDSU Bison football games or just dinner, drinks and or a movie. I also visit with my baby niece, who lives nearby.”
Whenever possible, Jesse also attends music concerts. “I just love music, no specific artists. I have always been active with music. I played the saxophone, piano and even had some guitar lessons. I was also very active in choir and competed at different singing competitions,” Jesse says.
