Meet Miranda, Senior Project Manager!
Q: Give us a quick overview: Tell us about your role at eLabs. How long have you been here, what roles have you played? What is your favorite thing about working at eLabs?
Miranda: I’ve been here for about 1.5 years, and I’ve been a Senior Project Manager the whole time. Probably my favorite thing about working at eLabs is the people. Both my colleagues and our clients are a joy to work with, and I’m always in awe at some of the innovations such a small team is developing.
We value Miranda's ability to make sure that our customers are engaged in their projects, and to keep everything moving. Bobbie Cooper, Agency Services Business Lead had this to say about Miranda:
"Miranda hit the ground running the moment she started working at Exclamation Labs. She is a hyper-achiever who never misses a deadline! On top of that, Miranda is always looking for ways our team can improve processes to better meet client expectations. Her can-do attitude helps our team deliver on-time and under budget."
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?
Mistakes were made. I did a LOT of dumb stuff when I was a kid.
2. If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
Any kind of art. I can’t even draw a stick figure to save my life, and I don’t have an artistic bone in my body. I’d love to be able even to doodle something, to be honest.
3. When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time?
Quilting, embroidery, or cross-stitch. I’m a 90-year-old woman, stuck in a 40-something body.
4. If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose?
I don’t watch a lot of TV, but I probably relate the most to Dr. House. Constantly sarcastic, but always looking at facts to come up with a solution.
5. What is something you learned in the last week?
Never underestimate the destructive power of a new kitten. We just adopted a little black kitten, and she’s already decimated pretty much anything she can dig her claws into.
6. What’s your favorite indoor/outdoor activity?
Bird watching/identification. I went to college for Environmental Resource Management, and was convinced that I’d be either an ornithologist or environmental lawyer. Things change, so I at least like to keep one of my passions as a hobby since it’s never turned out to be a career.
7. What chore do you absolutely hate doing?
Washing dishes. I would rather get a root canal than wash the dishes, which is probably why that responsibility has been delegated to my poor husband.
8. If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you meet?
Either one of my grandfathers. They both passed before I was born, and they both were amazing men with lots of stories to tell. My maternal grandfather trained crows to eat from his hands, and had flying squirrels that would hop on his shoulders. My paternal grandfather fought in WWII, and fought the front lines in Germany.
9. What’s the coolest (or most important) trend you see today?
Since COVID-19 happened, more companies are seeing the importance of allowing employees to work remotely. That’s had a whole host of additional issues, but our FinTech division has an amazing solution for handling Identity Access Management and quickly establishing role-based permissions.
10. What would you most like to tell potential eLabs employees or customers?
Exclamation Labs employs people that are passionate about their work, and are at the top of their respective areas of expertise. They’re innovators, hard workers, and always want to do what’s right for the customer and the company as a whole.
