Help us give a warm welcome to our newest account executive, Bianca Micheletti, a Rhode Island native, and LaSalle and URI grad. After a few years of marketing experience at an internal agency in Boston, Bianca comes backed with the analytical eye and marketing know-how to help create positive change for clients. We sat down and asked her some hard-hitting (sort of) questions to help you learn a little more about her and why we’re so excited to have her on the team.
I don’t have any fun or unique nicknames, but a lot of my family and friends call me B.
- What are your favorite and least favorite foods? Please elaborate.
My favorite food is Pizza. I know it seems like a typical response, but I don’t think I love anything more than a delicious slice (or two) of a good pizza. Growing up in an Italian household I was raised eating homemade pizza and being particular to how it’s made. Asking questions like, does the crust have enough crunch? When you hold the slice horizontal it is firm or does it flop? And, how is the sauce to cheese ratio? Although I enjoy a lot of different pizzas, nothing compares to my Dad’s Margherita. My least favorite food is meatloaf. I just absolutely cannot stand it.
- What’s your favorite place you’ve visited?
My favorite place I have visited is Italy. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate turning 25
years old with my best friend—whose birthday is a week after mine—than a trip to London, Rome, and Florence. It was my first time visiting Europe and I was awed by the natural beauty of the country. From the stunning view of the Trevi Fountain to the tour and wine tasting at the Rocca delle Macìe Vineyard in Tuscany — not to mention all the delicious food in between— it truly was the perfect vacation.
I am definitely a dog person and the reason for that is Hudley; my four-year-old Cavachon. When he was just a puppy at eight weeks old I “potty trained” him to ring a bell that hangs from the inside of the front door every time he has to go out. After just two weeks of training, he was a pro.
- Most rewarding project/past achievement you’ve been a part of?
Most rewarding project I have ever been a part of was a week-long mission trip to Kingston, Jamaica my junior year of high school. My school was hosted by Mustard Seed Communities; a non-profit organization dedicated to caring for the most helpless populations in society. During my time there I worked with orphans diagnosed with mental retardation, children who suffer from HIV/AIDS, and young teen mothers and their babies. The mission trip was an eye-opening experience to the everyday struggles people face in this world, not only 1,500 miles away from home, but right in your backyard.
- What’s your background (educational)?
I graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration, concentration in Marketing.
