Q&A with Vaishali Benner
What is the most satisfying or memorable project you’ve worked on?
I was responsible for leading an integrated online and offline campaign for an audio product tied to a breast-cancer awareness charity. This campaign was focused solely on cause-related marketing initiatives resulting in the most influential brand engagement from the entire community both internal and external.
Who (or what) inspires you in your work?
My own life is an inspiration and people that come in and out of my life.
What was your first job?
My first job out of college was in Ishinomaki, Japan as an English teacher. I lived there for three amazing years.
What's your passion?
Being able to understand and communicate in a different language connecting me to more people and experiences.
Where's the most memorable place you've traveled to?
Tie between Japan and Thailand.
What scares you?
I really HATE scary movies. I don’t like Halloween.
How do you kick back and relax?
This is simple. Quiet. A comfy couch. A great bold-tasting malbec and bitter dark chocolate.
What’s your favorite lunchtime meal?
Although I never have it—a cheeseburger with everything on it (except lettuce), seasoned curly fries and a vanilla milkshake.
What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream?
I don’t really like ice cream. More of a cupcake fan.
