Meet Justine Talling. Our company-culture guru, caring co-worker and awesome Community Manager.
I had a chance to speak with Justine and learn about everything – from her favorite local activities, the best concert she's ever been to and everything else that makes her so special!
Q: What is your favorite part of your job as Community Manager?
A: Getting to interact with the awesome team members of Anthem Branding! Our staff members are my clients, and I get to serve them by ordering beer + snacks, planning fun agency events + outings, organizing enriching volunteer opportunities, and helping with hiring for all positions.
Q: Who has the most influence over you?
A: My dad has been one of the most influential people in my life. He’s always been super supportive, and instilled in me a sense of confidence to do anything I put my mind to.
Q: What color best represents your personality and how does that color make you feel?
A: I am the color blue. Blue makes me feel happy and free - it’s like the Colorado sky!
Q: How would your best friends or family describe you in three words?
A: They would say that I am loyal, steadfast and optimistic.
Q: What is your favorite activity to do locally and why?
A: Living in Boulder means we have all sorts of hiking and activities right at our back door, so one of my favorite things to do is hike! Our office is located right at the base of Mount Sanitas, and so we often go on hikes during the lunch hour. I hike before + after work with my dog. I just love how much opportunity there is to spend time outside, no matter the season.
Q: What is your favorite local restaurant?
A: There is so much great food here!! It’s hard to choose. One of the spots I frequent most is a Chinese restaurant called Zoe Ma Ma - they have really amazing noodle bowls that are so flavorful and filling.
Q: Best concert you have ever attended?
A: That’s another tough one. I went to a music festival called Vertex a couple years ago, and saw Gramatik and Odesza. It was one of the best nights ever!
Q: Where’s your favorite place in the world?
A: My family’s cabin in Crested Butte, Colorado. We’ve owned it for 25 years, and it’s a wonderful, secluded place in the woods where we spend time together, and do lots of hiking, mountain biking and lounging.
Q: What’s rocking your world this month?
A: Ski season! My family and I have been skiing almost every weekend.
Q: Any secret talents?
A: It’s not a talent, but my pinky fingernail is super small. My best friends always ask to see it when they need a laugh.
