Social Navigator Welcomes a Full-Time Team Member

Social Navigator, the marine industry’s leading digital marketing company, hires a full-time brand manager, Laura Powers. 

Laura has an extensive background in the marine industry. She was raised in the Florida Keys, where her parents own Sea Tow Key Largo. From a young age, Laura was always around the water. Whether it was helping her Dad with ocean rescue salvages, scuba diving for her marine biology classes in high school, or spending the weekend at the sandbar with friends, she is comfortable on boats and is familiar with the marine industry.

Laura is an alumni of Florida State University, where she studied Entrepreneurship. Throughout her time at FSU’s College of Entrepreneurship, she took multiple classes in digital marketing. Laura worked as an intern and part-time employee for several companies specializing in content creation, social media strategy, and graphic design. These positions solidified her interest in the digital marketing field.

The Social Navigator team could not be happier to welcome Laura. Co-Founder and Manager Kirsten Corssen expresses her excitement, “It has been an amazing journey growing this company and I could not be happier than to welcome the new addition to the team,” says Corssen. “I am excited to bring another young female into the industry and what the future holds for our company!”

 

Laura’s combined passions for the marine industry and social media marketing led her to Social Navigator, where she now works as a full-time Brand Manager. She is excited to continue to work on the creative side of the marine industry and help clients bring their ideas to life through digital marketing.

#GOALS 2021, LILY

Late December and early January is a time where many of us do some self-reflection to think about how we can better ourselves for the new year. Well we at the Social Navigator team wanted to share with you some of our resolutions.

The next person to share their goals for the new year is our intern, Lily Flack.

Question: What are your New Year’s resolutions?

Lily: This year I hope to work hard and do well in all my courses I am taking at St. Mary’s College of Maryland. As a biology major, putting in the extra study time is necessary, and I strive to excel academically this year. I also hope to reduce my carbon footprint and spread awareness on the urgency of plastic pollution, especially in our marine environment.

Q: Why did you choose these as your resolutions?

L: Spending the last few weeks in the Bahamas with my family on our boat has given me a fresh perspective on life. I’ve learned how fortunate I am to have a healthy, loving, and supportive family, especially during these difficult times. I know my family will be able to support me this spring as I continue to learn at home as a remote college student. Moreover, traveling to new parts of the world has allowed me to see the impact plastic pollution has on our environment. I hope by spreading awareness I can make an impact on everyday plastic use within my local community.

Q: Do you normally follow through on your resolutions or do you break them sometime during the year?

L: Last year, one of my New Year’s Resolutions was to eat less chocolate ice cream. Sadly, this is one of my resolutions every year and I never seem to follow through. Oh well, there is always next year 🙂

Late December and early January is a time where many of us do some self-reflection to think about how we can better ourselves for the new year. Well we at the Social Navigator team wanted to share with you some of our resolutions.

The next person to share their goals for the new year is one of our content creators, Laura Powers.

Question: What are your New Year’s resolutions?

Laura: My new year’s resolution this year is to be more present and to live in the moment. I am trying to not get caught up on things that happened in the past or worry about things that are happening in the future.

Q: Why did you choose these as your resolutions?

L: I chose this because I would sometimes find myself doing my day-to-day routines and not even realizing that I was doing them. I want to be more present so that I can focus on and enjoy my life, not just go through it.

Q: Do you normally follow through on your resolutions or do you break them sometime during the year?

L: I am usually pretty good with keeping my resolutions in the beginning of the year, but they tend to fall off around summertime. I usually have 5-10 resolutions, and this year, I’m doing on just one so that I’m able to focus on it and make it a priority.

#GOALS 2021, KIR

Late December and early January is a time where many of us do some self-reflection to think about how we can better ourselves for the new year. Well we at the Social Navigator team wanted to share with you some of our resolutions.

 

First off to share her resolutions and goals, is the Social Navigator co-founder, Kir Corssen:

Question: What are your New Year’s resolutions?

Kir: 2021 goals are to set better boundaries in every part of my life, whether it’s work or personal. Analyzing where or who I am, putting my energy into, and deciding if this is a good place to spend my time. If it is not serving me, setting those boundaries either to cut it out or to limit the time spent in that space.

 

Q: Why did you choose these as your resolutions?

K: I decided to set more boundaries because of what I learned from 2020. It’s easy not to set up a time to do things when every day is the same. Either you are working too much (because your office is in your living room) or spending too much time on things that aren’t serving you. Equalizing the way you spend your time will help set boundaries and focus on what you REALLY need!

 

Q: Do you normally follow through on your resolutions or do you break them sometime during the year?

K: We all like to say we do, but sometimes they tend to slip away from us. Some tactics I do to stay on track with my goals is, to write down the goals and intentions. Whether its for that upcoming day or year, sometimes things will fall or be forgotten, but it’s always amazing to look back at the time to see what you have achieved. It’s also helpful to tell someone you trust your goals; this way, they can ask you about them and hold you accountable. Also, I like to picture how it feels after achieving these goals, and this manifesting will subconsciously help you achieve them. It’s then key is to let these goals go to achieve them – work hard, and what you want will come… trust me. “you know a manifestation is on its way when it seems like the logical steps anyways.”
