“It has always been important that my first job out of college provides me with an opportunity to grow both professionally and personally. It became apparent during the interview process that Purple Strategies is a company that values growth and creates an environment where people are excited to go to work every day – even if it’s virtual!”

“Creating and managing a blog and media brand, The Sideline Observer, with several of my close friends has had a tremendous impact on my life. The Sideline Observer taught me many skills I consider essential to success, including creativity, hard work, resilience, and teamwork. The work that we accomplished on The Sideline Observer is something that I am incredibly proud of and will always be thankful for.”

“As a Research Analyst, I believe a fascinating aspect of my job is learning about an array of industries and markets. I have always had a curious mind, and my position allows me to use that skill to learn about a multitude of topics.”
