October 24, 2022 10QS with Shelby Freeman, Sr. Account Executive
The internet is vast. What’s your happy place?
TikTok, where else am I going to find plant tips, book recommendations, and completely unproven health advice?
What’s your idea of a perfect meal?
I love a Seafood Tower. Oysters, lobster, scallops, and crab legs, paired with crispy fries. Don’t forget the sauces. Perfection.
Which fictional or historical character do you most relate to?
Eliza Thornberry from The Wild Thornberrys. We’re both animal lovers that enjoy adventure and the outdoors.
Who is your hero? (dead or alive)
Michelle Obama. She overcame adversity while at Princeton and Harvard all while advocating for issues that were important to her. But what I really admire is how she took on meaningful challenges as First Lady with her Let Girls Learn and Joining Forces initiatives.
Imagine that every type of creature, real or imaginary, is tameable. What would you bring home?
I would go with an elephant; they’re smart animals that form deep bonds. They have always been my favorite.
You receive an all-access pass to one city. Where do you go?
Cairo. I would love to have full autonomy while exploring over 5,000 years’ worth of history. It would be so cool to actually be able to go inside the Egyptian tombs and pyramids. Maybe even see a mummy.
Technology makes Westworld-style theme parks a reality. What “world” would you buy a ticket to?
Hogwarts. Imagine cruising the halls of the castle, talking to paintings, finding secret passageways, and getting into all types of intrigue. All with a pet owl and a wand that actually lets you cast spells. Go House Slytherin!
You’re granted a 25th hour every day. What do you do with it?
I would spend more time than I already do in the kitchen. Food and cooking are passions of mine.
Whether or not you knew it at the time, at which moment in your life did you make the most pivotal decision?
I always thought I wanted a career in nursing. While in nursing school, the true reality of what nurses do (and put up with) hit me hard, and I realized, despite wanting it for so long, it wasn’t for me. I ended up dropping out and spent a year taking GE’s before deciding I wanted to major in Business.
Under-the-radar recommendation. What do you love that more people should? (Movie, book, artist, podcast, restaurant, etc.)
I love checking out restaurants and bars in my area. For food, I highly recommend Murakami Sushi in WeHo, and for drinks, Alma’s Cider & Beer is my go-to. A laid-back cider bar in Virgil Village that also serves charcuterie.
