Meet Suzanna Colberg
Digital Marketing Manager
Where are you from and how did you wind up at Blue Magnet Interactive?
I’m originally from southwest Michigan. I fell in love with Chicago during a spring break trip in high school, attended college here, and the rest is history. I began working in digital marketing about five years ago and joined the Blue Magnet team (for the second time) in 2019.
What about Blue Magnet/your role at Blue Magnet do you love most?
If I’ve learned anything through my working life so far, it’s that many heads are better than one when it comes to creating the best possible end product. The staff here is smart, motivated and constantly collaborating. Rarely do more than a few minutes go by without people visiting each others’ desks to brainstorm. It’s great to be a part of that energy.
What’s your favorite thing to do in Chicago?
Coming from a small town, I’ll never not be razzle-dazzled by the big city and all the cool stuff there is to do here. The restaurants on Randolph Street (hello, City Winery!), improv comedy shows, festivals, Moth story slams, concerts at the Aragon Ballroom. One of my favorite life moments so far is seeing Jack White live and walking home from his show because I lived less than a mile from where he was playing. Never dreamed I’d be able to do that when I was a 16-year-old driving around the Michigan countryside blasting the White Stripes!
What is your favorite show?
American Horror Story
