Coffee runs are another popular office outing that Mandy enjoys, with many an afternoon spent trying different coffee places in Redwood City.

Mandy starts her day with a brisk bike ride to the office. After checking email, she meets with agency partners to discuss a variety of creative marketing initiatives. At her meetings, Mandy and partners brainstorm cross-functional projects, of which she manages overlapping teams, sketches out timelines, and collaborates to build the best marketing strategy for each brand.
