In the ever-evolving landscape of technology, where innovation drives competition, effective marketing stands as a cornerstone for companies seeking to thrive. The ability to communicate the value of complex products and services in a clear, relatable manner is paramount.
This is where Leah Valentine, a Content Strategist on the Marketing Team, comes in. She specializes in crafting compelling narratives, informative materials, and engaging content that not only educates the audience about the intricacies of Ocient’s product and services but also resonates with their needs and pain points.
Let’s learn more about Leah’s background and see how she fits into her role here at Ocient.
Where are you based and how do you take advantage of our remote first policy?
I live in Firestone, Colorado, about 20 miles northeast of Boulder. My neighborhood looks like a typical suburban neighborhood with about 300 homes, but we’re surrounded by active farmland. That means I see goats, cows, horses, chickens, and farming equipment on a regular basis. I’m also about 45 minutes from my favorite hiking trail, which is at about 6,000 feet.
How long have you been with Ocient?
Just over a year
What are some things you like to do in your free time?
I’m an avid reader and cyclist. Like most Coloradoans, I prefer the outdoors to the indoors.
What’s the next place you’d like to check off your travel bucket list?
Italy has always topped my list, but I love travel of all kinds!
What’s one thing you can’t live without?
I always have to have a book going!
What’s your go-to comfort food?
Which core value do you resonate the most with in your daily working life with Ocient?
I see inclusivity and collaboration every day at Ocient. We have a very helpful, non-judgmental culture, so any time a non-engineer like me has a question about something technical, it gets answered clearly and patiently. I also collaborate with other Ocienteers every day, either with fellow members of the marketing team or with people from other departments. We are all working toward a common goal, and we’re teaming up to do it right.
What career advice would you give your younger self?
Keep an open mind, don’t freak out when life throws you a curveball, and remember that the hardest things are often the most rewarding
