Women's History Month brought to you by Agnes Intelligence: Part II
To celebrate Women's History Month, Agnes Intelligence interviewed the incredible women on our team that keep things rolling. Second in this series is Lucy, our CMO and resident go-to gal:
1. Hi Lucy! Tell us about yourself.
I grew up in New Jersey and moved to New York after college, so I'm a born and bred East Coaster. My first job out of college was as a paralegal. I learned a lot about the legal industry, and specifically, about eDiscovery. I thought I wanted to go to law school, but now I'm really enjoying the startup life, interacting with multiple dogs on our WeWork floor every day.
2. How did you get involved with Agnes Intelligence?
My mom and Amy (our awesome COO) have known each other for years through the art world (and my mom's family and Amy's dad's family were part of the tight-knit Omaha community!). When I was transitioning out of being a paralegal, Amy and her husband John (our CEO and Co-Founder), brought me on to help them with their respective businesses. When I learned about Agnes Intelligence, I knew it was an opportunity I couldn't pass up.
3. What is one new thing you've learned since working at Agnes Intelligence?
I've learned a lot these past few months. In particular, I've learned that communication begets collaboration. It's so much easier and more efficient to work as a team if there is open, honest, and consistent communication.
4. Who is one woman who has had a huge effect on your life?
In college I interned for a small non-profit that promoted women's economic and social independence. The woman who ran the show at the non-profit is one of those all-around amazing people: she's friends with everyone, has a great deal of business acumen, is a truly talented writer, and has an exuberant spirit that pervades everything she does (and infects everyone she meets). She showed me how having a positive attitude could effect real change both in my life and in others' lives.
