The People Behind the PR: Martha Jacobs
Each week we’ll feature a Q&A with one member of our dynamic team. CB&A is an agency that values its employees, and we hope you enjoy learning a bit more about the people behind the PR.
Martha is an Administrative and Project Coordinator at CB&A. She started with the agency in 2007 as a PR Specialist.
Dogs or cats? I’m a sucker for ANY baby animals, but would have to go with dogs on this one.
Morning or night person? Definitely morning person.
If days suddenly lasted 25 hours, what you do with the extra hour? Realistically: sleep. Ambitiously: work out.
Which book have you read recently? The Hunger Games.
What was your favorite subject in elementary school? Art.
What’s your current Pandora station right now? James Taylor.
If you weren’t in PR, what would you be doing? Probably an art teacher, I basically had to flip a coin in college between business and education.
What was the first thing you learned to cook? Probably potato soup – courtesy of my dad’s great skills
Favorite condiment? Yellow mustard – none of the fancy stuff, it has to be plain yellow.
What’s your favorite sport and team? Green Bay Packers, duh.
If you could have dinner with your favorite literary character or author, who would you choose? Shel Silverstein. My family owns all of his books, and I once won the poetry reading category at a state high school forensics meet reading one of his poems.
UW-Madison: great university or greatest university? Gotta go with great university – but I can definitely pretend I’m a Badger during a UW football game day.
