We Are O.NE. Series. Let’s make this a place where I get to be me and you get to be you. Let’s make this a place where together, we are O.NE. Put your hands in the middle and share your story.
I’m from all over, I refuse to sit still! I have dual citizenship (Canada and USA) and I’m grateful everyday for the experiences it has provided me; I grew up in Toronto, Canada, moved to Seattle, Washington, studied in Salt Lake City, Utah and found myself in Omaha about a year ago when my husband’s new job landed us in the Midwest. My husband, Damon Peters, is the Chief Marketing Officer at Proxibid and challenges me intellectually every single day. I am a tech-driven, marketing guru, poker playing, strong young (millennial) woman, and I own it no matter what city I reside in.
Diversity, culture, and curiosity are my main pillars of success. It’s important to continue to explore and improve yourself and the place you live on a daily basis. Living in Omaha has provided me opportunities that I wouldn’t normally be faced with. My husband and I were nominated to part-take in the Omaha Executive Institute, a lucrative program locally here introducing high-level executives to the Omaha region and other high-ranking individuals to each other in the area. The program has allowed us to make connections in the community that you wouldn’t normally make, I’ve been fortunate enough to have the network that has propelled me professionally and personally in this city.
How do you make a difference in this community?
I enjoy challenging community thoughts and practices on a daily basis. Omaha is in a distinct situation for growth; individuals in this city work hard every day to launch the city into a competitive place that millennial’s and the next generation want to reside. As an IT Project Manager at Berkshire Hathaway Media Group, I’m in a spot where I can challenge our technical growth in local companies,
let’s do bigger and better, let’s take this region to new heights–who is with me?
