What attracted you to Saxum?
Renzi was my mentor when I was a student ambassador at the Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of Oklahoma. He encouraged me to visit Saxum and apply for a fulltime position. Saxum is a great place to work because of its incredibly talented people. We all care about each and every client and will go the extra mile to help them achieve success. I am so grateful I have the opportunity to work at such an amazing agency.
