Once again, we have the pleasure of presenting a valued member of our team in Kelly Marcimo. Kelly currently works as the Director of Senior Living operations at LeadingReponse and has been with us for over a year. She is an experienced professional within the realm of marketing and sales, without a doubt bringing valuable insight to the table. We had the chance to sit with Kelly and learn more about her life out of the office. Without further ado!
Give me your 30 second elevator speech. Who are you, what do you do, and what are your goals?
I love elevator speeches! I’m Kelly Marcimo, part of the LeadingResponse team. I offer Senior Living communities a proven multichannel approach to lead generation. Our solutions deliver highly qualified leads for sales teams to grow occupancy, driving attendance to in person and virtual events with Direct Mail and Digital advertising. We also now offer a website traffic tool to retarget qualified visitors with Direct Mail. My goal is to help my clients leave no stone unturned in their efforts to help seniors find a place to call home.
Who is your hero?
I have many heroes in my life. My children come to mind first; both have demonstrated a fearless ability to go after their dreams. My son started his own business and grew it successfully, and my daughter followed her career dream, first to New York City and then to Los Angeles. When I had the chance for a career move that involved a physical move, I couldn’t be less brave than they were, so I took a leap that I might have otherwise shied away from, because of their example.
What would you change about yourself if you could?
I would be musically gifted so I could sing, dance and play piano!
What is your favorite thing about your career?
What is your proudest accomplishment?
In life, my children, of course! In work, I always say in my sales and marketing career, my biggest accomplishment was selling a hot tub to my college marketing professor!
What is your favorite book?
I have many, forced to choose, 1776 by David McCullough! If you didn’t know the outcome you would have to be surprised we won the revolutionary war!
What is your favorite game or sport to watch and play?
My favorite sport to watch is Football. Since I am from Massachusetts, Brady and Gronk are my favorite players, glad I joined a Tampa based company, so I can still be happy to watch them winning!
What would you sing at Karaoke night?
I am not allowed to sing at Karaoke night. But if dreams came true, it would be a Celine Dion song, I know all the words.
Aside from necessities, what one thing could you not go a day without?
Since I have already given up Coffee and Chocolate on a daily basis, I have to say… Smiling
If you could share a meal with any 4 individuals, living or dead, who would they be?
My great grandmother, Eleanor Roosevelt, Betty White and Oprah.
What’s the most daring thing you’ve ever done?
I drove a car my husband built, a Factory Five kit car, 120 miles an hour, until he suggested I slow down a little. It was not intentional but daring just the same!
What song would you say best sums you up?
Happy by Pharrell Williams.
