Each month, we spotlight one of our spectacular employees here at Go Local Interactive and give you the scoop on the people behind the scenes who are working Go Local magic every day! This month, we are focusing on our super sweet, hard-working Client Strategist, Molly Hedgpeth.
School/Degree: Missouri State in Springfield with a degree in Digital Marketing Communications
Title: Client Strategist
How did you find your way to Go Local? Kevin McCoy who I worked with at a previous agency reached out to me about the client strategist position. I heard really good things about the company from him and decided to give it a shot.
What do you love most about Go Local? The laid back environment. All the people I work with, everyone is a hard worker but they are also very fun and genuine. I love the fact that Go Local is constantly growing and always open to new ideas and trying new things.
What do you enjoy most about working in Client Services? What I love most about my job is that I get to work on multiple types of projects. I get the opportunity to touch all the products and am not restricted to only one. I also love when I have the opportunity to drive the overall strategy of a client. If they say they are interested in a website, I get to develop and implement my vision for that client and it is really cool.
When you’re not at work, what do you do for fun? I like going to concerts, I love classic rock, Paul McCartney is my favorite. I love hanging with my family (especially my niece and nephew). I grew up on the farm and so I always want to be outside.
I also really enjoy doing graphic design and creating imitations for people. And of course hanging out with my dog, Gabs!
What’s your favorite KC restaurant? I am terrible at this because I never remember the places I go to, but I think I would say Cooper’s Hawk because I love their wines and they have a lot of great choices.
What is your dream vacation? A trip to Europe, if I could just visit a bunch of different little places like Greece, France, Italy.. or basically all of Europe! Just give me a whole year off so I have the time to see everything.
What is your favorite Go Local memory? It is probably my first Friday I had here at Go Local right after I started. Everyone got so excited for the weekend and there was a bunch of music like classic rap and other fun songs paged over the intercom. It was just a sign that I had made the right choice by coming here because I saw how fun and laid back everyone is. It was a great way to end my first week.
Do you have a go local nickname? Probably Mol, or Mols? Also, Gwen and Ashley call me Shania (Shania Twain).
Have you ever given a Go Local nickname? I don’t think so. Well, I call Gwen Martina McBride.. we are pretty much cowgirls
What is something that no one would know about you just by looking at you? The biggest surprisingly fact about me is probably that I grew up in the country on a farm.
OK, pretend you have the day off. What would we find you doing? I would definitely be doing something, I am not very good at relaxing. I would need a project to work on. I would probably be doing something on the computer or taking a run outside in the beautiful weather.
Do you have any vices? Pizza! I could eat pizza for every meal, it is so bad for you, but I don’t care!
Describe yourself in 3 words. Positive, Driven, and Friendly
