In June 2016, Brittany King started as an intern for Terra Dotta before joining the Marketing department full-time the following August. Her daily responsibilities entail managing the corporate and public conference sites; collaborating with the marketing team on monthly newsletters & articles, as well as marketing emails and other projects; and managing a variety of products (Pardot, Vidyard, Salesforce, AODocs, etc.) for Terra Dotta.

Before joining Terra Dotta, Brittany worked at her undergraduate university as part of the technical support crew for Lenoir-Rhyne Conferences and Events, which focuses on setting up and managing audio-visual technical needs for events on campus. Brittany graduated from Lenoir-Rhyne University with a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre in May 2016.

Outside of work, Brittany enjoys reading, writing, video games, hiking, and participating on and off stage in the theatres around her community. One vacation spot she has always wanted to visit is Europe, specifically France, Germany, and Greece.

Brittany says her favorite part of working at Terra Dotta is that “I am always learning. And the people -- everyone is so, so nice and so willing to help out each other, even when they are busy.”
