There’s a new sheriff in town in the Marketing Department at LiquidPlanner, and her name is Michelle Flandreau. With a resume that includes both Nordstrom and Expedia, we could not be more excited to have Michelle on the team. She’s only been here for a grand total of two weeks, but what better way is there to get to know someone than by giving them a short and sweet Employee Q&A?

Q) Welcome to LiquidPlanner! You’ve only been with us for a short time. Do you have advice for other people who are starting new jobs?

My advice to anyone starting a new position is to talk to as many people in the company as possible and listen to what they have to say about what the company does well, where there are opportunities, etc.  I don’t always follow this advice, as I get so excited to jump in and get started. This is a good reminder for me however to sit back and listen!

Q) What makes you passionate about marketing?

I like to understand the customer and how they engage with a product.  It’s rewarding to create customer loyalty and see how that impacts the bottom line.  I could really nerd out on marketing, if you want me to go on.

Q) What do you think you bring to the LiquidPlanner team?

I joined the LiquidPlanner team because they are a truly nice group of people with a passion for their industry and for customer service.  I am also a passionate person and like to set goals and work as a team to accomplish those goals.  I feel lucky to be here.

Q) What do you like to do outside the office?

I like to EAT!  I am a big fan of dinner parties or brunch with family and friends.

Q) What’s your favorite feature in LiquidPlanner?

My favorite feature within LiquidPlanner is assigning tasks – is that wrong?  It’s great to collaborate and stay on task with what needs to get done.  Tasks are assigned to me and I can assign tasks to others.  This collaboration helps clearly define who is responsible for what, which is a very efficient way to work.

Q) If you could work in any other profession, what would you choose?

No questions, I would be a wedding planner.  I like having a plan and executing on the plan, and also happen to be a bit obsessed with weddings.  I’m a sucker for love.

Q) Go-to karaoke song?

Nope, I don’t go there and you wouldn’t want me to.

Q) Where’s your favorite place in the world?

My favorite place in the world is where ever my family is, but that’s a bit cheesy.  My favorite vacation spot is Italy – any city in Italy.  I’m a big fan of the food, culture and overall pace of life.
