Gragg welcomed one new employee in the month of April, Britaney Wehrmeister in the Strategic Aggregation Marketing department.
GA: Britaney, tell us a little about yourself. Any previous jobs, college, how you found yourself at Gragg.
BW: I graduated from Wichita State University in December of 2012 with a degree in Integrated Marketing. Before attending Wichita State I also went to the University of Kansas. Upon graduating from WSU I began the monotonous tasks of searching for a job in the marketing field. That is when I found Gragg. This is my first “big girl” job, however. I’ve worked mostly in bar/restaurant jobs before working here.
GA: What restaurants?
BW: I worked at Scotch & Sirloin in Wichita and the Fox & Hound.
GA: Scotch & Sirloin? I like the sound of that!
BW: I also got a job in Wichita working at an online designer jeans company. I worked part time, but I was able to take classes that would work around my job. It was really cool. I got to travel a lot.
GA: So why did you decide on Kansas city?
BW: I was thinking Dallas or Kansas City. After doing research on advertising agencies in KC and Gragg just sort of caught my eye. I liked all the charity work, that it was named one of the fastest growing companies, etc.
GA: So what are your interests?
BW: My interests include, but are not limited to, KU Basketball, Wichita State Baseball, spending time with family, shopping, wakeboarding, reading, my dog, and KU Basketball,. I’m a really huge KU Athletics fan.
GA: Wakeboarding? Is that like skiing?
BW: Kind of, it’s a much bigger platform to stand on.
GA: For uncoordinated people?
GA: oh well. Thought I found my sport. So you went to Wichita State, but you are a KU fan?
BW: I was a freshman at KU when they won the National Championship and they also were good in football. So it just kind of stuck.
GA: What else do you like to do?
BW: I love warm weather, so in the summer I go to the lake, travel and overall just enjoy being outdoors. I prefer to watch most sporting events live, which includes any KC athletic event, the Chiefs, Royals, and Wichita State Baseball.
GA: Any place in Kansas City you like to go?
BW: I really like this place up in brookside called the remedy. I go there every sunday for brunch.
GA: Where else can you be found?
BW: I literally just moved to Kansas City, so I’m not quite sure what’s what. For the time being I can be found at home, Gragg or whatever bar my friends decide to drag me out to for the evening. Any advice in this area would be greatly appreciated. For now, you can find my on my email, Facebook, or Twitter.
