Marketing Coordinator, Izzy Smith started interviewing at Lamp Rynearson during her last semester at CSU. She was looking for a workplace that would challenge her and had values that aligned with her values.
During an interview Marketing & Business Development Group Leader Candice Hartley walked Izzy through a proposal the team was working on. The work reminded Izzy of a proposal she designed for her senior capstone project in Global Environmental Sustainability. She recognized her science communication skills could grow at Lamp Rynearson, and she connected to our value of leaving a legacy of enduring improvements in our communities. Izzy decided that Lamp Rynearson was the perfect place to start her professional career after graduating.
“The Marketing group was incredibly welcoming and excited to grow their team,” Izzy said.
Izzy has been partnering with our Corporate Communications lead, Teddianne Vaught, to work on our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity (DEI) initiatives. While working on DEI content, Izzy has had the opportunity to interview changemakers about their roles in our communities.
“I’m grateful for my experienced coworkers’ willingness to help me build my skillsets,” Izzy said.
Izzy is excited about expanding her skillset as she continues to expand her partnership with Teddianne on corporate communications. She is also working on her drone license in order to incorporate more aerial content into our marketing work.
Outside of the outstanding work that Izzy is doing, she also enjoys Lamp Rynearson’s Legacy Events that the Design Group in our Fort Collins office host quarterly. The entire team goes into town to enjoy time together doing activities like go-carting, axe throwing, painting, etc.
“I think these events have been great to build that comradery that you really need in an office setting,” Izzy said.
Outside of work, you can find Izzy in the beautiful mountains of Colorado hiking and paddle boarding. She also spends most of her free time with her friends and family.
Happy 1 year, Izzy! We are thankful to have you as part of our team and excited to see how you will continue to grow at Lamp Rynearson.
