At the Hi5 office we are blessed to have a hard-working, energetic, bundle of joy constantly rushing around to make sure everything’s running smoothly and everyone’s day is a little brighter.
Her name is Abbey Stanerson.
Abbey is the biggest reason why our office is so upbeat and fun. She always brings a positive attitude, and she provides entertainment wherever she goes. She’s super encouraging and constantly finding ways to build people up.
If you can name someone as positive and fun to be around as Abbey, well… we aren’t sure you can!
Abbey’s dynamite personality makes her the perfect fit to serve as Hi5’s senior brand manager. In other words, this Iowa native works tirelessly to make sure all of our clients are satisfied.
“I make sure the client is happy 100 percent. The client always comes first.”
Abbey then focuses on making our jobs easier. She communicates with our team to let us know exactly what the client wants, helps us develop timelines and gives us all the necessary information to be successful.
She’s involved in just about everything that goes on at Hi5, but this University of Iowa (Go Hawkeyes) J-School graduate loves getting to tell her clients’ stories.
Abbey sits down with all of our clients to figure out their backstories, and she learns what they want to say about themselves and their practices to the world. She then has the opportunity to make sure those stories are told through videos, online listings, social media and their websites.
Here’s what the Hi5 team thinks about Abbey:
Abbey At Work:
Hi5’s Five Burning Questions
Hi5: What song best describes you?
Abbey: I really want to do a Bieber song… “Sorry” by Justin Bieber because I say sorry 50 million times a day.
Hi5: What is your spirit animal?
Abbey: I’m a unicorn because I’m fun, colorful and full of life!
Hi5: What were you like in high school?
Abbey: I was friends with a lot of people. I was friendly to people. I golfed. I was a wrestling cheerleader. I was in swimming. I dabbled in volleyball. I did Future Farmers of America, but EVERYBODY did FFA. We did it because there were retreats and you could miss school. I was also in Family, Career and Community Leaders of America. I was in yearbook. That’s when I first realized I loved journalism. I got to do photos and help design layouts. I really liked that. I didn’t get queen, but I was on prom court.
Hi5: What is your most embarrassing moment?
Abbey: I think it was sixth grade. During halftime at a high school basketball game, I was playing on the court. I was waving to my friends in the crowd, and someone was passing the ball. It smacked me on the back of the head, and I fell, as a sixth grader, in front of all the high schoolers. It was so embarrassing, I didn’t want to play anymore. It was awful! After that, I don’t really get embarrassed easily.
Hi5: If you could live anywhere at any point in history, what would you choose?
Abbey: I’m a cliché girl who loves Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and I’m obsessed with New York. What was that? The 1960s? Just the idea of that time where everything was so romanticized and nice.
