Jessica Steglich, Marketing Manager, Binkley & Barfield, Inc.
SMPS Member since 2014
How has SMPS helped you in your career? I find the webinars extremely helpful! I love that I can learn best practices from the masters in our field.
What has been your memorable SMPS event to date, and why? 2018 SMPS Southern Regional Conference. Shaffer Creative, LLC presented some amazing breakout sessions about graphic design, how to create a brand manual, and effective marketing with limited resources. I learned so much from those ladies and the notes I took during those sessions are ones that I refer back to at least once a month.
What do you love most about your job? My team. I have spent most of my career working as the only person in the marketing department, so working with a group of five has been a game changer. I love being able to bounce ideas off each other and the confidence in knowing that nothing is slipping through the cracks.
If you could eliminate one thing from your daily schedule, what would it be and why? The commute. I love where I live, and I love where I work, I just wished they were closer together.
What would you do with a year off? I would love to sell all my belongings and just travel the world living each week in a new city.
What do you enjoy most about Houston? I love that most of my family is here. I grew up with most of my relatives in other states, so it is really important to me that my kids are close to their grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
How do you kick-back? A glass of wine, my husband, and a great show, like Game of Thrones, Modern Family, or Impractical Jokers.
