From a young age, Danica Castro knew she wanted to work directly with people. It’s what originally drew her to the hospitality industry and pursuing a degree in hotel and restaurant management. In her pursuit to live a purpose-driven life, she’s shifted her career and industry to be able to work in a role that values relationships.
Now, she’s able to use her passion for connecting with people in her position as the new brand coordinator at Out & About Communications.
Taking on a New Challenge
After obtaining her degree from Northern Arizona University, Danica quickly realized she could not work a desk job that requires little interaction with others. This is how she found herself in the chemical sales industry, working directly with clients to ensure their needs were met. After 14 years in this role, she decided it was time to change gears but knew she still needed a position that valued relationships. After her first interview, Danica knew Out & About was the place for her to be able to do just that.
As a lifelong learner, Danica was ready for a new challenge in an environment where every project and client is unique. As a relationship-driven person, she appreciated joining a team that provided her support to dive right in. With Danica, it all comes back to a foundation of trust and connection. She’s been able to build this not only with clients but with the rest of the Out & About team.
What You Can’t Tell Just From Looking at Her
Danica tries to embody the saying, “Do something today that your future self will thank you for.” In her life, this led her to embrace amazing, once-in-a-lifetime opportunities such as running with the bulls in Spain, while she was studying abroad. Despite the crowds, being alone, her mental and physical fatigue, and the paella she consumed the night before, she knew she was able to persevere and achieve her bucket list goal. To this day, she is grateful for taking risks and experiencing all that life has to offer.
We’re excited to have Danica join us! Learn more about her and the rest of our team on our team page.
