Employee Spotlight:
Bridget Poetker

Meet Bridget Poetker. PR and Social Account Executive by day and city explorer by night, Bridget is a dog mom of one lucky golden retriever and can probably quote the entire Sandlot movie to you. BP (Bridget Poetker, get it?) is our lady for all things social and PR, from new school to old school and everything in between. Read on to learn more about Bridget and see how she answers the age-old question, “most used emoji?”

Only using a hashtag, can you tell us what you do?
#Hashtag (we didn’t see that one coming, but she is the #queen of hashtags)
(#blessed) (#goals)

If you could choose one amenity to add to the workplace, what would it be?
A fire pit. I love sitting out on our patio when it’s nice out, some (or several) s’mores would make the work day even sweeter.

You have an insanely cute dog named Wrigley (we don’t know where she got the name). What’s the worst thing about being a dog mom?
She’s my 6am alarm clock on Sundays. Also, the no-dog Uber policy is kind of cramping my style. Not looking forward to that lake-effect snow.

You’re a Lakeview-er, what’s your go-to spot in the city to eat?
Green Street Meats. Pulled pork, picnic tables and string lights – It’s Instagram gold. (BP knows a thing or two about Instagram, she manages Celtic’s own Instagram, and we gotta say the captions are always spot on.

Now that it’s getting cold out, what are you missing the most about summer?
My parents live the lake life, since I was little I basically grew up in the water. A good ski, a solid tan and a couple cold ones is my ideal summer weekend. (Where’s our invite?)

If you could grab a pumpkin spice latte with any celeb, who would it be?
Michael Scott, I don’t care if he’s technically not a real person. I think he would give me some great advice on time management (probably not).

How have you found that managing a corporate Facebook page is similar to running your personal account? How is it different?
The biggest similarity would be that content is EVERYTHING. Baby and new puppy pictures are great, but your distant cousin doesn’t want to see a hundred of them. Same with a corporate page, know your audience and don’t blow up their feed with irrelevant or excessive posts. The biggest difference would probably be that for a company page, tone, messaging and response time are all things that really need careful attention. With the Lofthouse Cookies Facebook page, most of the action is in the comments section. (BP helps manage the Lofthouse Cookies Facebook page where managing customer interactions is the most important responsibility. Read our latest blog to see how social media has changed the customer service game).

Time to learn a little more about Bridget with our “Lightning Round.”

Most used emoji?
Heart eyes, of course.

Sit or stand?
Stand, I have a standing desk for a reason.

Go-to karaoke song?
“Man, I Feel Like a Woman” (Let’s go girls!)

Word association, GO!
