Last week, we introduced one of our recently hired Digital Marketing and Learning Specialist team members, Abby. In today’s post, we’re getting to know the other half of our new dynamic DMLS duo: Patrice Mitchell! Patrice joined us this month after previously working in the broadcast journalism field, as well as gaining experience in other diverse industries along the way.
We are thrilled about both of our wonderful additions to the team. Keep reading to find out more about Patrice and what she will bring to the table at GAAP Dynamics!
1. What has your career path been like prior to joining GAAP Dynamics?
I’ve taken a rather non-traditional career path so far since graduating from college. I began my career in the news industry, working as a producer and reporter for the NBC affiliate in Bluefield, West Virginia. In 2018 I decided to take a risk and travel the country with my partner. That opportunity allowed me to use my degree in other ways and learn new skills in different industries. These experiences taught me so much and I’m grateful for the opportunities. Upon returning from my travels, I settled in RVA and have been here ever since! I’ve grown to absolutely love the area that I am happy to call home.
2. What are some highlights of your career thus far?
While working for my first TV station our team won an award for the Top Newscast for a small market 6PM show. It was an honor to be considered for this award because it took the entire team, and an immense amount of effort to make it happen. Another career highlight is being about to transition to a new communications lane and into digital marketing and eLearning. I’m very proud to be chosen to work with GAAP Dynamics!
3. Why did you choose GAAP Dynamics?
The more I learned about GAAP Dynamics, the more interested and excited I became about the role on the DMLS team. Content creation is one of my passions, and to be able to do that daily is something that I am very appreciative of.
4. What are you looking forward to working on as a member of the DMLS team?
I’m looking forward to learning how to program the training modules and editing content for eLearning. I’m also looking forward to doing more social media content creation and potentially voice acting for training modules.
5. What are some fun facts about you?
I grew up on a pig farm in southern West Virginia and spent most of my childhood getting (unintentionally) lost in the woods behind my house. I was a bit of a tomboy growing up, but now I would consider myself to be ultra girly. I enjoy anything that involves food, including cooking, going to new restaurants, and food trucks. I’m always listening to a new book or a new podcast in my car. My boyfriend, Taylor, absolutely loves the Buffalo Bills which has since rubbed off on me. Sundays in the fall are filled with football, family, and fun!
Welcome to the team, Patrice! We’re so glad you joined us. It has been great working with you so far, and we’re really looking forward to all that is to come!
