“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.” – Steve Jobs

If someone asked me why I love my job, I could go on and on. Each morning when I wake up, I’m excited get into the office and start my day. I thoroughly enjoy coming into work every day. The number one reason why love my job is I love the people I work with. We spend more time together than we do with our own families. We truly are a family here at Heron Agency.

The Heron culture is one like no other.

The environment is incredibly empowering and supportive. I love that questions are always welcome and collaboration is a must! We always find ourselves going back to this quote:

 “It is not in the DNA of anyone that works for Heron to not work hard.” Frank Klaus, Harlem Globetrotters

I work with the most hardworking, inspiring, intelligent, respectful women I have ever met. A big shout out to the Heron girls!

No two days are ever the same at Heron.

From researching social media trends, running to the post office to mail flyers, securing clients to sing the National Anthem at the Cubs game and sleepy 5am morning TV segments. Time flies by when you are having fun. Well let me tell you, the time flies by at work. PR is fast moving, hard work and stressful, but it is extremely rewarding when you secure that opportunity for your client or find that perfect contact to reach out to.

I love that my job challenges me every day in different ways.

I have the chance to have the freedom to think outside the box and be creative. Also, within this job there comes an enormous amount responsibility. We all feel responsible to keep a theater production running, a restaurant open, or a hotel filled to maximum capacity. We feel a sense of responsibility to keep people working. Feeling this pressure means always checking your phone to make sure you never miss an opportunity and late night emails.

I feel like I won the lottery working for Heron Agency.

Most people have long days, and work really, really hard (we do both here) yet not everyone has a job they love and not everyone is lucky enough to be happy in their careers and with the people they work with!
