4 Walls Spotlight: Meet Gretchen Ast

Name:
Gretchen Ast

Position:
Social Media Client Services Associate

How long have you been with 4 Walls?
6 months

What's a typical day like for you?
As the title indicates, the majority of my day is spent interacting with new or existing clients.  If I’m not rolling out new blogs and social media sites, I’m generally following up with current clients on the status of their campaigns and checking in to see if they need anything from me.

I also keep up with social media news every day. When news benefits our clients I summarize it and post it to the web.

What's the best thing about your job?
I love being creative every day, whether developing a new blog, writing an article, or finding a creative solution to a problem.  I also love providing our clients with exceptional customer service, which is fairly easy to do with fantastic co-workers and a forward-thinking company that is always looking for ways to improve.  

What do you do in your spare time?
I like to try new things, but lately I've been going for long walks with my beagle-basset hound, Bailey, and spending a lot of time at the gym, where I recently discovered my passion for Zumba.  I also enjoy reading, writing, drawing, painting, and catching up on the latest films. I’m an Eagles fan, and I love to cheer on the Syracuse University football and basketball teams!
