15 Things You Don’t Know About Angie Halama

by Julie Vollenweider on February 24th, 2011

It’s no secret that the Brain Traffic team includes top industry authors and speakers. What is less known (until you work with us), is that the Brain Traffic team also includes a crew of incredibly talented folks that make our content strategy world go ’round.

So, I was thinking, “Wouldn’t it be great if more people got to know the spotlight-shy Brain Traffickers? Wouldn’t it be great if we could do it in a way similar to 25 Things You Don’t Know About Me?”

And then I answered myself (like I do) with a great big, “YES THAT WOULD RULE.”

First up is Angie Halama, project manager extraordinaire. Here are 15 things you don’t know about her:

1. The best cake is always chocolate. Always.

2. I’m the only Minnesotan who isn’t sick of winter yet.

3. Back in 2002, I used RoboHelp to re-do all my employer’s help content. Because I was the only one who wanted to.

4. Has anyone else worked on RoboHelp?

5. One of my recent favorites is peppermint tea. Almost as good as caffeine.

 6. A former coworker once gave me the nickname Tenacious A.

7. Project management has fostered my appreciation of spreadsheets. 

8. I will never choose chopsticks over a fork.

9. I came to Brain Traffic more than three years ago as a writer, when there were only four employees total. We now have 19.

10. Trees are one of my all-time favorites.

11. I am very bad at Monopoly.

12. In my former copyediting days, I got to indulge my love of dictionaries.

13. My earliest workplaces include two libraries and one bookstore.

14. I know a lot of recipes using sauerkraut.

15. One of my first jobs was telemarketing. I did it for a week, made four sales, and set a record. Seriously.
