Creativity and Drive: Kelly Herbert

The VGM Forbin team was honored to announce Kelly Herbert as the VGM Forbin Employee Spotlight for June 2022! Kelly is our Senior Social Media Specialist and our go-to for compelling content and marketing strategy. She uses her problem-solving skills to easily identify weaknesses in marketing strategy and provide solutions for clients that come to her for help. We cannot thank her enough!

We interviewed our winner and this is what she had to say

  1. How long have you been working at VGM Forbin?
    I have been with VGM Forbin for about four and a half years – since February of 2018! Fun fact: I only worked in an office for 6 months before going remote full-time.
  2. What is your role at VGM Forbin?
    I am a part of the web marketing team and work on everything from social campaigns to analytics.
  3. What's your favorite thing about your job?
    My favorite thing about my job is how it's always changing. There is always a new client with unique circumstances or a campaign that’s yielding outside-the-norm results that needs to be looked at. It keeps me on my toes but also makes every day a little different than the last.
  4. An interesting fact you may not know about me:
    I have lived in three state capitals – Atlanta, Des Moines and Tallahassee!
  5. Your favorite quote?
    ‘Believe you can and you're halfway there.’ Theodore Roosevelt
  6. Most importantly, if you were stranded on an island, what is one thing you would make sure to have on you?
    I read somewhere once that a mirror is an amazing thing to have. You can use it to start fires or to create a reflection to alert airplanes/boats that might be passing by. That being said, I would bring a Chick-fil-a.
  7. Lastly, if you could have one superpower what would it be?
    Oh, I for sure want to be able to fly.

Here is what a couple of colleagues had to say about Kelly:

Here is why Ana thinks Kelly should be the spotlight, “Firstly, she is an incredible team player. No matter what question or request you come to Kelly for, she always jumps to lend a helping hand. Secondly, she has years and years of marketing experience and is a great resource to all of us! Thirdly, for having a positive attitude and contributing to a fun and exciting work culture.

Joshua added, “Kelly has been working hard to learn and develop in an area outside of the one she had been in previously and has been doing an excellent job at it. Any time she's working on something, or even things we – the marketing team – are trying to do, hit any friction, she has been proactive at trying to overcome it. Her attitude and determination have been awesome – even more so than normal.”

Bailey agrees, “Kelly has taken on account management for Locke Funeral Services, is learning more about Google Analytics 4, helps with post-go-live check-in and does social and blogs for her clients. I appreciate her willingness to always jump in to help the team when needed along with bringing innovative ideas to the table! She is the best!”

Congratulations, Kelly!
