When you’re interacting with Exclamation Labs, there is a good chance that you are unaware of the talent fueling your project. We work with some pretty spectacular people who are truly experts in their field. Take a few minutes to get to know them, personally and professionally, and see why these folks are the “special sauce” in our recipe for success.
Our first monthly employee spotlight focuses on Communications Director, Jenny Krampf.
Jenny has a bachelor's degree in english with a public relations minor from Frostburg State University and has been with eLabs for over a decade! Her previous experience with sales and marketing in the hospitality industry provided her with a career foundation in customer relationships and planning. Jenny's roles as Account Executive and Marketing Director at eLabs have continued to enhance those skills, and provided her with a deep look into the technical challenges that our customers face. With all that experience, Jenny has become a true pro at communicating the eLabs mission to our customers, co-workers, and industry partners. In her newest role as Communications Director, Jenny represents eLabs not only through her skilled communications tactics, but also through her involvement in many local and industry related groups.
CEO, Jonathan Hutcherson, had this to say about Jenny:
"Exclamation Labs’ tie to our community is critical to our success. Whether it’s writing a press release about an exciting new opportunity, speaking to a college class about social media, or planning the next technology conference—Jenny is almost always orchestrating it. As we continue to grow, Jenny’s attention to detail and expertise in crafting the perfect words will be a driving force behind our accomplishments."
Now for the fun part! Get a glimpse into the life of our resident fashionista, Jenny! (Speaking of fun, here's a Fun Fact: Jenny came up with the idea to name our blog “Lab Notes!” Pretty witty, huh?!)
Since we’re here in the “Lab,” time for an exam! No right or wrong answers, but it is rapid fire. We'll call this "10 questions in 60 seconds." Tell us the first thing that comes to your mind:
1. What would you name the autobiography of your life?
“Life is Short. Buy the Shoes.”
2. If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
Play an instrument, probably the piano, but impressively well.
3. When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time?
4. If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose?
Ooh, I was an English major. This is impossible. So, I will go with an iconic television character — Elaine Benes from Seinfeld. I pretty much am Elaine.
5. What is something you learned in the last week?
I have been following the impeachment hearings closely so I am learning something new almost daily about the legalities of everything and who all is involved. My grandfather was one of the official stenographic reporters for the Senate Watergate hearings, as well as the Joint Committee on Assassinations for the United States Congress. He prepared official transcripts of hearings regarding the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, and the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. He passed away a few years ago, but I would love to hear his thoughts on what's going on today.
6. What’s your favorite indoor/outdoor activity?
Taking road trips with my son
7. What chore do you absolutely hate doing?
Ironing. It’s pointless. You iron a shirt, put it on, and it’s wrinkled again.
8. If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you meet?
I’m going to go with my favorite author — Edgar Allan Poe. Poe was the inventor of the modern detective story, and he spent a lot of time in Maryland. He lived a short, but fascinating life.
9. What’s the coolest (or most important) trend you see today?
After attending Tech at the Gap this year, I have been fascinated with learning more about AI — smart devices and cars, AI applications in security and healthcare. AI advancements are moving at a frantic pace.
10. What would you most like to tell potential eLabs employees or customers?
I work with some of the most intelligent, creative, and dedicated people. We truly see our customers as partners, and we want to help you reach your goals.
