New Employee Spotlight: Erin Spencer

We’re excited to introduce Erin Spencer as the 16th member of Blue Ion! Erin is also the 6th member of our performance marketing team. She grew up just a short drive from here in Summerville, and after a stint in Columbia at USC and a formative summer in NYC, she’s made it back – to the benefit of us and the Charleston creative community.

Erin’s official title is Junior Performance Marketer, and she’ll be responsible for helping us continue to grow our paid and earned media efforts, along with our burgeoning marketing automation services.

EMoney or ESpence. Somehow my nicknames have more street cred than I do.

Sometimes I finish a book I start.

Dog food. My sister and I were cruel in truth or dare.

Mashed potatoes. That would be a game changer on Thanksgiving.

If you could have any super power, what would it be and why?
Remember how Peter on “Heroes” could absorb all of the powers? I want that one.

Tiny elephant for sure. Elephants are my favorite animal actually.

Writer Smurf

Confetti cake.

Mrs. Frizzle. I can dig driving a magic school bus. I also always admired how she coordinated her dress to the day’s adventure.

How to stop reading self help books because they are awful.
