Meet Sammi Raines
Where are you from and how did you wind up at Blue Magnet Interactive?
I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. I moved to Chicago to attend DePaul University in 2008 and found myself enjoying the city so much I haven't left! I discovered BMI through a referral from a previous colleague after searching for agencies with a focus in digital marketing and social media.
What about Blue Magnet/your role at Blue Magnet do you love most?
I love the BMI culture! The team is truly a group of hard-working, intelligent individuals that take pride in what they do everyday.
What’s your favorite thing to do in Chicago?
My favorite thing to do in Chicago is run on the lake path during the summer and of course, eat! We have a never-ending supply of incredible restaurants located around the city with outdoor patios and rooftops. Some of my favorites are Sunda, Topo Giggio, and Summer House.
If we lived in a world without internet, what would be your alternate career?
I've always dreamed of living in Washington D.C. and pursuing a career as an FBI agent in the BAU department. I know, a complete 180.
