We would like to introduce our newest Mango, Rachel Reardon. Rachel joined the Mango team a few weeks ago and we would like to officially welcome her to the Mango Grove.
Who better to tell you about Rachel, than ... Rachel. So here she is in her own words:
"My job title here at Mango is Marketing Coordinator. I work with our consumer team to help get the word out about Mango Passport.
I first heard about Mango at an Automation Alley event two years ago in Troy. There, I met Jason Teshuba and learned a little about Mango. As a language student, it was exciting to hear about a language company doing such cool things in this area. I stayed connected with Mango for the next few years though social media and voila!
I recently graduated from Oakland University where I studied French language and literature, advertising and design. While I was in school, I completed internships in finance, marketing and design and most recently worked in social media at a marketing agency.
My favorite thing about Mango so far is the office culture! In just my first week, I experienced impromptu hula hooping Olympics and an old-fashioned game of telephone with a multi-lingual twist. You can tell that the Mangoes work hard and are passionate about what they do but also have fun doing it.
I couldn’t pick one trip in particular but my favorite travel destination is Montreal! Every time I am there, I discover amazing new places, meet fascinating people and find more reasons to love the city. While at Oakland University, I spent time as a French Research Assistant, traveling to and evaluating Francophone universities in Quebec City and Montreal. I try and go back as often as I can. I’ve learned about the province of Quebec and the immense impact that the French/English bilingualism has on education, politics, art, and culture. Plus, I love the “Franglais” perfected by French Canadian speakers (that is often hilarious to Anglophones)!
The core value I appreciate the most is innovation. It’s so exciting to join a company that is so committed to and values the importance of constantly being at the cutting edge and accepting new ideas."
Well said! Welcome Rachel!
