Tell us a bit about your path to becoming a Googler.

I started my career at an advertising agency and spent six years working on a range of clients before coming to Google. Prior to being in this role here, I spent a year and a half working on our sales side.

What is the best piece of career advice someone ever gave you?

Early on, I had a manager tell me to never use more than one exclamation mark in an email. I still scan every email before I send to make sure it  has only one.

 

What most excites you about [product/service you work with Display Auto bidding?

Display auto-bidding is always evolving. I am constantly learning so much from our advertisers about what they need from us - and it allows us to grow and evolve the product constantly.

 

What is the most important thing our members should know about Auto bidding?

It works really well! I am the ultimate skeptic, but seeing is believing and the performance Google Auto-Bidding drives is truly amazing. Advertisers on average typically see 20% more conversions and a 13% better CPA versus manual bidding.

 

If you could use only one Google product for the rest of your life, which would you pick?

Google Search. I am a very curious person! Growing up, I had a limit on the number of questions I could ask every night.

 

What’s your favorite thing to do outside of work and away from the computer/phone?

Travel. Recent destinations have included Peru and Machu Picchu and Mexico. I am also lucky enough to get to travel to great places for Google. Recent destinations have been Berlin, London and Dublin. I also love to read and all of the long plane rides afford me lots of time to read!

Amazing! Great spotlight and I love the travel you get to do... My 11 year old daughter is very curious like you. She has always been the question asker in the family. I often find myself saying "i don't know, let's google that" -- Many of my phone searches are trying to answer the questions she comes up with on our car rides. lol
