GDC welcomes Tabitha Hoover

GDC is excited to welcome Tabitha Hoover to our team. She joins us as a Digital Media Specialist with a skills-set that is built to help our clients optimize their digital marketing campaigns. Music-loving Tabitha is based in Dallas and she’s looking forward to getting to know San Antonio and explore its hiking trails. We posed some questions to Tabitha to introduce you to our newest GDCer. 

What is your role at the agency? Tell us about what you’re looking forward to.

I’m joining GDC as a Digital Media Specialist and working alongside our account service and creative teams to build optimized digital marketing campaigns. I’m most excited to be working on amazing client accounts and adding to my knowledge by learning from my talented GDC teammates. I’m also looking forward to honing my craft in the paid digital space.

How has it been coming onboard in the current environment? 

It’s a learning process, but GDC has been incredibly welcoming! Although I will be working remotely from Dallas for the time-being, I had the opportunity to visit the agency in San Antonio and meet some of the great people I’ll be working with. I’ll be honest, being remote is an interesting position to be in, but the great thing is we live in a day and age where getting to know people online is easy.

What are your hobbies or interests?

I’ve always been a huge music aficionado. A favorite pastime of mine is finding new artists and sharing them with my friends – occasionally making a playlist for people here and there. I also love attending live music shows. Pre-COVID my desk area would’ve been a collection of tickets for all the live music shows I would have planned to attend. I love hiking and being outdoors too. I’m always looking for opportunities to seek out new trails to explore. If there happen to be any in San Antonio, I’d love to hear about them! 

Tell us one thing about yourself that isn’t on your resume.

Two years ago, I had the amazing opportunity to backpack alone in Europe for two weeks. Though it wasn’t a long trip, some people backpack for a year at a time, it was one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life. My favorite part of the trip was how it pushed me outside of my comfort zone. I met new people, made last minute itinerary changes, and I learned that you should definitely not fall asleep on a train in Italy. You realize then how fast life can come at you when you wake up to find  you’re on the wrong train headed to the wrong city in country where you don’t speak the language.
