Since I’ve been at OBI Creative for a few months now, I thought it would be a great time to introduce myself! My name is Stephanie and I started at OBI back in February. I was hired as an Account Director and at the moment I am involved with the marketing efforts for the redevelopment of Nebraska Crossing Outlets.
Though I’ve only worked at OBI for a short time, I already feel like I’ve found another family. Not only is OBI a great company to work for from a client perspective, but I’m excited to come into work everyday to learn from my colleagues. It’s really a great team here that collaborates daily to find the best solutions and creative direction for our clients. It’s great to be surrounded by people who know how to work hard but have fun at the same time.
I’ve traveled a ways to get where I am today but I think it’s instilled characteristics in me that I can use everyday as an Account Director here at OBI. I started my career in the news industry as a Producer at 10/11 News. I produced the morning show, which meant I went into work around 10pm and left at 8am. Though I loved helping residents of Lincoln get their day started, the night shift did not agree with my body! From there I moved back to New Jersey (where I’m originally from) and worked as a Commercial Producer for a production company. All those infomercials you see in the middle of the night when you can’t sleep- my job was making those spots come to life!
After several years as a producer I decided that I needed a change, and that’s when I made the switch to advertising/marketing. I think I’ve found my niche in this industry. I love seeing how the power of marketing and advertising can help our clients companies grow and succeed.
When I’m not working, you can normally find me relaxing with my husband and golden doodle puppy. We’re big fans of finding new restaurants and bars to try in Omaha and traveling to new and exciting places.
