Name: Dinah (DEE-nuh) Boehle
Hometown: Norwood, NJ
School: Boston University
Role at WHOSAY: Account Manager
Prior role: Sales Planner at Discovery, Inc.
Dream creator(s) to work with: Oprah, Chrissy Teigen and Michelle Obama
Favorite thing about advertising: For such a large industry, it often feels like a small world! I love working with/ running into former coworkers and clients.
Most challenging aspect of the industry: It’s constantly changing- Technology, consumer behavior and media consumption are always evolving, so it’s important to pivot and adapt quickly. What works today won’t necessarily work tomorrow.
Secret life hack: Color coordinating/categorizing your inbox. It’s an easy way to distinguish a flurry of incoming e-mails.
Interesting fact about yourself: I’m a former Yelp Elite and recovering Yelp-aholic. There was a time in my life where I couldn’t go anywhere without writing a review about it. 🙈On the bright side, I did score some neat perks like a free cruise and tons of restaurant discounts!
Best advice you’ve ever received: “Run towards things, not away from them.”
If you woke up tomorrow as an animal, what animal would you choose to be and why? A falcon so I could travel the world on a whim!
If you had your own late night talk show, who would you invite as your first guest? Judd Apatow; I’m a huge fan of dad jokes and love the embarrassing stories he tells about his daughters. If you haven’t seen it already, I highly recommend his stand-up, “The Return,” on Netflix.
If you had to delete all but three apps from your smartphone, which ones would you keep? Google Maps, Instagram, and Apple Music. Without them, I would be lost and bored!
What are the last three emoji you used on your phone? 🙈😂👍
BONUS: Go-to karaoke song: “STOP” or “Wannabe” by the Spice Girls
