This week, the SAGE employee that we interviewed is Dory Schrader, Director of College Marketing at SAGE’s US office. Dory shared with us a little bit about her working life:
- What is your favorite part of your workday?
Whenever I see a really creative subject line on a College email, or learn about a new strategy or idea from one of our Marketing Managers.
- How do you see your role playing out SAGE’s vision to support and foster engaged scholarship and education?
Every day we help to secure new adoptions and purchases of College textbooks, and the global book publishing program. Each time a student passes a test using one of our texts, I feel we can take some small sense of ownership of having helped that student to succeed, without breaking their wallets.
What’s the most exciting thing happening in publishing right now?
I’m very intrigued with integrated solutions- products that incorporate text, video, audio, quizzing and grading options, and feedback loops.
What is the most interesting object on your desk?
Right now I have two beautiful drawings from my 6 year old; one is a portrait of me through his eyes, in marker. These drawings always pull me back to what’s most important in my life. I also have my Psych stress pineapple…those who know what this means, will appreciate how much fun it is!
What is your favorite thing to do outside of work?
Spend time with my family and exercise (run, Pilates, swim)
