Getting To Know Me – Morgan!
My name is Morgan Rae Playle and I am a senior marketing major at St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, Texas. I am graduating this spring (WOOOO!) and I could not be more excited. Following graduation and one year of employment with Luna Brand Management, I will be working for MullenLowe, an advertising agency, in Boston Massachusetts. I could not be more excited for this next chapter in my life, but I am certain I would not have it if it wasn’t for the foundation and growth I have made while with Luna.
I began working for Luna Brand Management in May of 2018 as an Online Content Coordinator, and time has flown by, to say the least. While in this position, I have had the privilege of overseeing various client’s social media sites nationwide. From planning their posts to creating graphics, I have loved every bit of this job. Additionally, I have met an amazing team of women that consistently build each other up. With our group chat and our weekly motivational emails, it’s hard to not feel the love! Despite being so far in distance, we are all so close in heart.
When I first joined the company, I came in wide-eyed and ready to take on any task. I can confidently say that I have the exact same enthusiasm and passion I have now than I did then. I believe this trait of mine has stayed true because of the management that Luna Brand Management has, in particular, Christina England and Amy Flores. Creativity and quality are two traits that are stressed on our team. In everything we do, we make everything unique and better than the last. This freedom that management gives us is so empowering. I feel confident in my abilities and in my craft, and because of this, I use this in all the work I put out for the clients I oversee.
Above all, I feel that this position has helped me to be even better in my time management skills. In the fall of 2018, I was working two other jobs in addition to working for Luna Brand Management, part of about a dozen extracurricular activities — all while being a full-time student. Our team was constantly motivating me to be the best I can be and would give me tips and pointers on how to improve myself. This unity and drive have helped me not just in my professional life, but also in my educational and personal life as well. The lessons I have taken from Luna Brand Management are lessons I would never want to trade for the world.
Before I close, I would like to end with something that I believe defines Luna Brand Management in one word: eunoia. It is the shortest word in the English language and contains all five vowels. The word itself literally means “beautiful thinking.” I think of Luna Brand Management whenever I hear or see this word because it is exactly what this company is. We are a team of amazing leaders who are continuously thinking and creating the best of the best content for our incredible clients. In everything we do, there is love, beauty, and meaning.
I am so fortunate to work for a company as ambitious and positive as Luna Brand Management — this team has truly become a family to me.
