The Northway Group

Meet Monica Ruhland

 

 

Monica is in her first year of the Marketing & Design Program. She joined the program because she’s always wanted to start her own business and thought the program could set her in the right direction. Monica sees herself as a people person especially when she connects with that person. Some of the traits she believes makes a great leader are Communication, Confidence, Honesty.

 

The most influential person in Monica’s life is her grandma. This is because she is the kindest person she knows! If she could live in a movie it would be Southpaw because she has a huge crush on Jake Gyllenhall. Monica is definitely a dog person and always looks at the cup as half full. We are grateful to have Monica on the team because she always has a great attitude and is a hard worker.

Meet Katherine Johnson!

Katherine is a second-year student in the Marketing & Design program. Katherine joined the program because she thought it’d be a good way for her to express her creativity and people skills. Katherine believes that what makes a great leader is the ability to understand people and being empathetic with them. Katherine sees herself as both a leader and a follower because they both serve a purpose.

 

If Katherine could live in a T.V. show it would be The Manga Centaur’s Life because she could live a normal life but everyone would be a different creature which is not something you see every day. The animal that best describes Katherine is the Clydesdale because she’s determined and works hard to get things done even though she’s a little goofy and clumsy. Katherine is a well-rounded teammate and we’re happy to have her on the team.

Olivia Lamont

Olivia is a first-year student in the Marketing and Design program. She joined the program because she likes art and thought it would be practical to find a career that allows her to stay in touch with her creative side. Olivia sees herself as a leader and believes what makes a great leader is being easy to relate/talk to, understanding yet stern. Olivia thinks the role that best suits her is being a project manager or CEO. This is because she is organized and good at taking initiative.

 

Olivia says the animal that best represents her is the cat. This is because she likes naps and can accomplish anything she sets her mind to. If she could live in a book it would be The Great Gatsby because she likes the era in which it takes place. Olivia describes herself as energetic, clumsy, and hard working. She is a well-organized and creative asset to the Northway group. We’re very happy to have you on the team!

Meet Myrvan Halleland!

Myrvan is a second-year student in the Marketing and Design program. He joined the program because he’s always been interested in marketing and thought the program seemed interesting. Myrvan sees himself as a leader but knows that it’s important to remain coachable. He thinks what makes a great leader is confidence and empathy. The most influential people in his life are his family because they are all loving and push him towards excellence.

 

If Myrvan could live in a book it would be The Alchemist because it’s inspiring. The animal he thinks best represents him is the lion because it usually does what it wants and has its mate do all the hunting for him. If Myrvan could master any one skill it would be coding because the limitations are endless with what you can do. Myrvan is a well-rounded creative who may pursue an AE role as well. We’re happy to have him on the team!

Excitement In The Air

Yesterday, we got an exciting opportunity to do a unique project for a last minute client. Instead of our usual way for creating work for clients, we have decided to take it to another level. We are doing a brand standard challenge in The Northway Group, where students were put into groups of four and tasked with creating a brand standard for this client. We are excited to see the results and creativity of each group.  You know what they say two heads are better than one, so then four must be better than two! We’ll keep you all up to date with this exciting project!

Meet Megan Rausch!

Megan is in her first year in the Marketing and Design program. She decided to join the program after doing a job shadow and realized that she was more of a computer/artistic person. Megan has played both the leadership and follower role and has no problem taking charge and making sure things get done. Megan sees herself as a people person and says her previous jobs have helped her break out of her shell.

 

If Megan could live in a T.V. show it would be One Tree Hill because the group of friends in the show always look out for each other even while conflicts arise. If Megan could master one skill it would be car talk because then she wouldn’t have to pretend to know what is being talked about. Megan is a great asset to the team who offers a lot of creative ideas. Were grateful to have her on the team!

Meet Kyle Zirbes!

Kyle Zirbes is a second-year student in the Marketing & Design program. He joined the program because it sounded interesting and like something he would like to learn more about. Kyle sees himself as more of a leader and believes what makes a great leader is taking pride in leading. He says they need to be confident, caring, and understanding. Kyle enjoys being an AE lead and finds the experience rewarding, interesting and fun.

 

If Kyle could live in a movie it would be Star Wars. He finds it interesting and would love to see the different lands and would also like having special abilities. The animal Kyle thinks best represents him is the Dog because it is loyal, loving and protective. If he could master any one skill it would be communication. Kyle has served as an AE for the Northway group and has done a lot of great things. We’re proud to have him on our team!

Meet Juila VanDalen

Julia is in last year of the Marketing & Design program. She chose the program because she loves art and decided to make a career out of it. Julia sees herself as more of a leader than a follower because she likes contributing and helping her teammates. Julia believes what makes a great leader is the ability to take initiative. The words that best describe Julia are Organized and Hardworking.

 

If Julia could master any skill, it would be speaking another language. The animal that best describes her is the owl because it is smart, quick and wise. If she could be in a T.V. show it would either be Scooby Doo or Sponge Bob because they bring her good memories. Julia is doing an awesome job as Project Manager and we are very thankful to have such an organized person on the team!
