Ode to Dani, a Blogging Genius
October 31, 2011 3 Comments
The first time I met Dani, she was sitting on a table, combat boots swinging above the carpet, talking about how she shared a New York City apartment with ten people while she did an internship in the city. I was a Denver Publishing Institute student at the time, and between her comments and those of the two other marketing girls, their words were gold. Since I landed the marketing internship here at Fulcrum, Dani has become more than my immediate supervisor—she has been my teacher: someone who always has an insightful and unique perspective and is a pure marketing guru. This past week, she broke the news that she’s moving on to be the marketing manager for The GLBT Center of Colorado . I’ll miss seeing her Green Lantern coffee mug in the cubby next to mine, surrounded by posters of superheroes and zombies, and looking up obscure websites and movie trailers after she disappointingly shakes her head because she’s the only one in the office who has heard of them.
Still, most everyone in the office has known Dani much longer than I, and so I’m posting a few of Dani’s best blogs, moments, and memories from her coworkers. If any of you have anything to say to Dani, be sure to post below!
Our warehouse manager, James Ruiz, on his favorite Dani moment: “I think the first time that I saw her come in with blue hair comes to mind. I still remember Bob’s face when he caught a glimpse. Up to that point I thought I was the only rebel here, with four tattoos, but she showed me up with that wild hair! That young lady will go places, and I wish her all the best!”
Karla, our accounts receivable manager, wrote, “Dani is a very unique individual. It was fun waiting every morning to see what tights she would have on or what color her hair would be. It made the day interesting. She has a great personality and is very talented.”
Finally, Katie, our marketing manager and publicity extraordinaire, had a few memories and photos to share: “Along with being my colleague, Dani was also my roomie in NYC for BEA this past May. Together, we ventured into the Big Apple (In the middle of the night, Dani arrived at the hotel room from another show on the West Coast and scared me half to death. We were both exhausted and only half-grunted at each other before collapsing into a fourteen-hour sleep.) to man our BEAUTIFUL booth, meet Tyra Banks , eat and drink very well, ride the carousel in Central Park, go shopping at H&M, and visit the Met. Because of her bright blue hair, we made friends everywhere we went, and I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for our NYC memories. Maybe someday we’ll meet up there again…Best of luck, Dani! Make us proud! ”
