How would you describe yourself and your role here at PageFreezer?

I’d say I have good attention to detail and strong organization skills, which both align really well with my role as accounting assistant here at PageFreezer. I also enjoy optimizing tasks and finding ways to do them more efficiently. I like to think of our accounting team as the financial gatekeepers of the organization—we manage the flow of money, which once again demands an eye for detail. We also have to deal with sensitive financial information on a daily basis, and that often means having good judgement and making the right decisions.    

What was your first job?  

My first real job was as the bookkeeper/office manager of a wedding florist. I consider myself lucky that my first job was such a fun experience and great learning opportunity. Like every other girl, I love flowers, so I was very glad to find a position in my area of expertise—accounting and finance—and yet be surrounded by the beauty and pleasant fragrance of flowers all day. Working in a small business that was in a stage of quick growth and expansion also helped me learn some very valuable processes and strategies.

What is your favorite thing about coming to work every morning?

The thing I love most about my job is the fact that I have such wide-ranging tasks and responsibilities. I really like working on different things, since it prevents me from getting bored—I definitely wouldn’t just want to do the same repetitive task every day. Another thing I enjoy is interacting with customers. I love helping them and providing solutions to their problems; it gives me a great sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. Generally, I love making everyone around me a little bit happier.

How would you describe the PageFreezer team?

I absolutely love the team and working environment at PageFreezer. I truly believe that all of us here live the company value of “Make it Personal” on a daily basis. Everyone here treats colleagues, customers, and collaborators with integrity and authenticity. It’s also the most fun-loving team I’ve ever worked with.

If you could visit any place in the world you’ve never been, where'd you go?

My list of places in the world that I still want to visit is really long, since I haven’t traveled that extensively yet. I definitely want to visit European countries like England, France, and Switzerland. I also love the ocean and beaches, although I can’t actually swim! So I would love to visit Bora Bora and Santorini; I find photos of these places to just be gorgeous and mesmerizing.

What is one thing that you cannot live without?

I am a very family-oriented person, but I also don’t live close to family, so I cannot go without my phone. I probably love my mom and sister a bit too much, so I don’t go a day without talking to them.

Dogs or Cats. Which would you choose?

Definitely dogs. I find cats intimidating; I’m not really a fan of that sharp stare. To be honest, I’m actually more of a “human” person—I absolutely adore human babies!

How Schools Can Manage Official Social Media Accounts and Protect Student Privacy

With many schools boasting large and active communities, it’s unsurprising that social media has become a  popular tool in education. Social media platforms offer an engaging way to share information and connect students, parents, and teachers. A Facebook page or Twitter account makes it easy to inform everyone that school has been closed because of snow, remind parents of important upcoming events, or simply celebrate the latest team win. 

The Best Way to Place Social Media Data on Litigation Hold

With so many people active on social media these days, it’s hardly surprising that posts and comments on platforms like Facebook and Twitter often feature prominently during legal matters. This means that legal professionals have an obligation to protect relevant social media data from spoliation, but the challenges that come with these modern information sources extend far beyond willful destruction of evidence.

Social Media Evidence Spoliation and Preservation

No case better illustrates the risks of social media spoliation than Lester v. Allied Concrete Company. The plaintiff had lost his wife in a tragic vehicle accident and was suing for wrongful death. Unfortunately, some Facebook photos came to light that his lawyer was afraid would prejudice the case, and he consequently told his client to delete them. “We do not want blow ups of other pics at trial,” an email from the law firm read, “so please, please clean up your Facebook and MySpace!”
