Why Do We Have a Tabler of the Week?
We periodically interview one of our amazing co-workers to highlight on our culture blog. A great culture is 100% about the people that drive it. We come from different places, backgrounds, and experiences and all add a lot of spice to this workplace.
Tabler of the Week: Megan Mitzel
Tabler Since: July 2016
Hails From: Baltimore, MD
Proud Alumni Of: UNC-Chapel Hill – Is it basketball season yet?!
What is your role at Social Tables? Director of Product Marketing
What were you doing before you came to Social Tables?
Content marketing for Craftsy, a startup for knitters, quilters, artists, etc. in Denver, Colorado, and then for Hugh & Crye, a menswear startup in DC.
What do you like to do outside of work?
Go to the beach, for sure, but I don’t get there often enough. You’re most likely to find me hiking with my best friend, Cali the siberian husky (she has almost 2,500 Facebook fans, but she hasn’t let it go to her head). I also watch a lot of FC Barcelona and DC United games, play soccer and basketball, laugh at Parks & Recreation, ponder why Justin Bieber deleted his Instagram account, eat for days at Glenn’s Market, and design T-shirts. I also like to visit my grandmother in Baltimore, and help with her handpainted rock business (you read that right).
Talk about your favorite Core Value:
My favorite value is “Be outrageous.” I remember telling my family about that one, and they shook their heads, mumbling “startups…” But I think it really frees everyone up to do their best work when they’re encouraged to be the truest versions of themselves. By knowing you can be comfortable being you, you’re able to play to your strengths, and put all your mental energy towards making the right decisions for the business and for your role.
Talk about your favorite Social Tables event:
Definitely #SToccer, the pick up soccer club that plays every Tuesday on the mall. We have so much fun, and the vibe is really encouraging. The coolest part is that we pick up new people each week including strangers just randomly passing by (we even had two guys from Kazakhstan join one time!).
What makes you weird?
Where do I begin? My friend and I were convinced rollerblading was going to make a come back mid-2015, so we started a rollerblading club. The only problem (other than that rollerblading actually wasn’t coming back) was that we never figured out how to stop on the rollerblades, so we could only skate in circles in a parking lot.
