Get to know your fellow Ad 2 San Diego Members! This months featured member is Jen Lawson.
Where is your hometown?
I grew up in Martinsville, a small town in southern Virginia. With the Blue Ridge Mountains as our backdrop and “y’all” being one of our most common words, it was a very idyllic way to grow up. I sometimes felt like I was living in an episode of the Andy Griffith show.
What brought you to San Diego?
I had vacationed in San Diego with my family growing up and just fell in love with it. I was out of college and working as a designer/project manager in a sign shop in Charlottesville, Virginia and decided the time to move was now or never. So I packed up a couple of bags, got on a plane and moved out to San Diego. A month later I was gainfully employed as an environmental graphic designer and living out my California dream.
What made you join Ad 2 San Diego?
I attended Mingle Bells and had such a great time that I wanted to get involved. I met up with Sheila Fox and Cindy Saylor of Ad Club and they mentioned Ad 2, I joined the group shortly after.
What has been your favorite part as an Ad 2 Member?
The events have all been excellent and the people are very friendly. Meeting like minded people who have similar interests has been great. I’ve had a lot of fun so far, I wish I had joined Ad 2 years ago!
Saint Patrick’s Day is creeping up, what is your favorite way to celebrate?
I enjoy doing the St. Patrick’s Day 10k in Mission Bay. It’s a great way to start the day (and feel less guilty about drinking a green beer later).
