My name is Lacey Woltz, and I am beyond thrilled to join the Blue Compass team as a Digital Marketing Specialist! As I type this on my first day, I can already tell that I am going to love it here! From the people to the office culture to the work - and everything in between - Blue Compass is everything I was looking for in a digital marketing company.
Born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa, I grew up a Hawkeye. So, naturally, when it came time to go to college, the University of Iowa was an easy choice (go Hawks!). While at Iowa, I was involved in two student organizations - PRSSA and Inspire PR - and enjoyed two exciting internships with the Des Moines Music Coalition and Little Village Magazine as a marketing intern. In May of 2015, I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism and Mass Communication, and couldn’t wait to take what I had learned and hit the ground running in the “real world.” Combining my love for marketing and passion for creativity, I knew digital marketing was the career path for me.
After college, I continued my education at a digital marketing agency in West Des Moines where I had the opportunity to pursue many digital arenas: social media marketing, email marketing, SEO and content creation. It was in those experiences I learned it wasn’t just the creativity that I loved about digital marketing, it was that no two days are the same. Each day is a new thrill! Fast forward to today, and I can’t wait to pursue these things and more at Blue Compass.
Outside of Work
When I’m not working I enjoy traveling, spending time with friends, frequenting live music events, being outside (looking at you camping, biking and kayaking) and cooking (eating). You can often find me in the kitchen, at a music festival or poolside/seaside under the sun. Never underestimate the power of good food, good music and a weekend getaway!
