Another week, another Team GMD Q&A. It’s kind of like Vogue’s 73 Questions. Instead, it’s in blog form and there are less than 10 questions – because you’re busy and we respect your time.

 


 

This week on Team GMD, we are featuring Kaeli Yuzicapi, one of our hardworking Social Media Strategists. As a Social Media Strategist, Kaeli manages everything social media from start to finish with an iced americano in hand and relaxing tunes playing through her headphones. You can find her talking to herself as she plots organic social content or onboarding our ever-growing list of clients. Read on to learn more about Kaeli.

In a short paragraph, tell us a little bit about your role at GMD. What do you do on a daily basis:

I do everything related to social media. I onboard clients, create social media strategies, plot content month-to-month, as well as day-to-day client requests and edits.

Expertise: Social Media

Hidden talent: Handstands

Personal kryptonite: Salt + vinegar chips. I could eat them all day every day. Sometimes I do.

You’re going out for brunch. What do you eat?: I am so not a brunch person as I don’t like eggs and toast. I would drink coffee.

What are you currently listening to: Chill playlists on Apple Music while I work. I find I can concentrate better with low melodies.

What keeps you motivated: A rainy day. There’s nothing like a rainy day to make sure I get absolutely everything done. A sunny day makes me want to drop everything.

Office habit: talking to myself as I try to figure out what clients are requesting

Two truths one lie:

  • I played hockey growing up
  • I have two dogs
  • I’ve never owned a hair brush

Causes you are passionate about:

  • Children’s hospital – I volunteer in the Emergency Department weekly. I love kids.

How to you keep your work organized:

  • The social team has 3 different places to mark a task complete. I feel accomplished when I check off something that’s been completed.

Dogs or cats?

Dogs

One tip for working with the client:

Find common ground and take time to build a rapport. It does wonders later on down the road. Earning their respect from day one will solidify the entire means of communication in the future.

Side-hustle: making sure my plants don’t die on me

What are you doing on a Saturday afternoon:

Either meeting friends for coffee or lunch, or sitting at home in bed with a cup of tea binging on my latest Netflix show craze.

“Do the thing you fear the most and the death of fear is certain.”
