Meet Nicole Poggensee
Associate Director of Digital Strategy
Where are you from and how did you wind up at Blue Magnet Interactive?
I'm from Tinley Park. I found Blue Magnet Interactive a couple months after I graduated from Illinois State University, with a degree in Marketing, on LinkedIn and knew right away that this company full of hardworking goofballs was the place for me.
What about Blue Magnet/your role at Blue Magnet do you love most?
I love working at Blue Magnet because it's a nice variety of life (our BMI family, clients, and everyday work life). All of us here are similar and yet so unique. Each day is never the same.
What’s your favorite thing to do in Chicago?
I love just exploring around and of course walking along the lake.
What's a fun fact about you?
I have a twin brother.
If we lived in a world without internet, what would be your alternate career?
I would be the host of my own talk show Chit Chat with Nicole and Coco. A mix between the Ellen DeGeneres Show and the Oprah Winfrey Show with my dog Coco.
What is your favorite/least favorite punctuation mark?
I love exclamation marks! (...as I use one...) It's the only punctuation mark that you can use to showcase your excitement and enthusiastic personality. My least favorite punctuation mark is the semicolon. I feel like I never use it right.
What song pumps you up/gets your creative juices flowing?
This changes a lot depending on today's current hits, but you can always find me jamming out to "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" by Whitney Houston.
