Megan - Account Manager

  1. The pumpkin shaped Reese's cups are superior
  2. I've always loved giraffes so I'm going to say my giraffe costume!
  3. I think I'd get through it but I'll definitely be crying by the end
  4. Dots, candy corn, or peppermint patties 👎 
  5. I love problem solving and helping to find creative solutions!

Janelle - Account Manager

  1. Do chocolate covered espresso beans count?
  2. Yennefer of Vengerberg from The Witcher, but I try to up the ante every year.
  3. I actually go out of my way to stay in haunted hotels on vacay if that tells you anything...
  4. Not a candy, but popcorn balls. Complete waste of Trick or Treat bag space.
  5. The combination of creative and strategic thinking, every day is a fun challenge

John - Dir. of Business Development

  1. Not a huge candy fan, I'd rather have a steak or seafood.
  2. Probably my Wayne Campbell and Garth Elgar (Wayne's World) costume in college, I was Wayne, and my 6'4 roommate was Garth, pretty funny.
  3. I can make it.
  4. Necco Wafers or Candy Corn :face_vomiting:
  5. I love that I get to learn about a variety of different companies and industries. The strategy and intricacies of working with each are really interesting to me.

Erica - Content Specialist

  1. Swedish Fish is my favorite for sure. But If we are talking chocolate, anything Reese's.
  2. At some point during college I got into special effects makeup. Since then i've been doing something fun with it every Halloween, so it's hard to pick a favorite.
  3. I'd probably make it halfway through before finding an emergency exit. Jump scares are the worst!
  4. Good & Plenty for sure, if black licorice anything is your favorite you're either old or a serial killer.
  5. Being able to create new and unique content that helps clients stand out from their competition.

Rob - Dir. of Client Services

  1. Candy cigarettes (the safe alternative). Second would be spice jelly beans but I usually come up empty on Halloween.
  2. Bumblebee
  3. I tend to scare easily when people sneak up on me at the office but if I know it’s coming I’ll be fine
  4. Mounds bars. Impossible to trade at the end of the night.
  5. Love it when a plan takes off and you see real, measurable results. Ecstatic feedback from a client getting results has to be my favorite.

Brandon - Graphic Designer

  1. Any form of Reese's
  2. Elementary School me felt preeeetty cool wearing my Ring Wraith costume from Lord of the Rings
  3. I think I'd be alright, exploring unknown dark places is fun.
  4. Twizzlers because I'm convinced they're not actually editable and no one actually likes them.
  5. The portion that I work with. Visual creativity, being able to create something for the world to see that helps a client achieve a goal.

Danielle - Dir. of Operations

  1. Candy Corn :smiling_imp: :joy:.  (also, if it's chocolate it's fair game)
  2. Dunno about favorite, but lemme just say I'm STILL salty:salt:that my parents said the Pink Power Ranger in kindergarten was not school appropriate :face_with_rolling_eyes: .  The red, yellow, and blue rangers all made an appearance in class that year.  
  3. Halloween attraction or actual?  Halloween attraction - I used to work in one, so those are my people (trust me, go first).  Actual - Stick with me, I'll bring the salt!  But really, there's probably some scientific explanation behind it all.
  4. A Can of Root Beer.  Disgusting, and actually happened.  What a cruel Halloween treat! :joy:  Kindly leave the root out of my beer and I will be on my way.
  5. It's like a puzzle to solve that is satisfying in the end once you complete it.

Katie - Account Manager

  1. Kit-Kat
  2. Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gatsby
  3. I would probably join in with the Haunted House crew and scare people, I love scary and spooky
  4. Milk Duds
  5. Marketing is forever changing, keeping me on my toes and always learning

Bree - Sr. HubSpot Specialist

  1. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
  2. A handmade Pebbles costume by my dad
  3. The more haunted the better - bring it on!
  4. Baby Ruth
  5. Since it’s ever-evolving there is always something to improve upon and try, and if you can’t decide which strategy to go with- there’s always A/B testing!
