Meet Sierra Nelke, Social Media Coordinator at RBA

What is your background?

I am a born and raised Texan, but I’m the furthest from a country gal you can get. I graduated from Texas Tech University with a Bachelor of Arts in Public Relations. I am an extroverted person with a big personality (once you get to know me). I live to inspire and connect with all of the people who surround me.

What drew you to a career in marketing and advertising?

I loved design and social media for as long as I remember. I know… millennials right? When I went to college, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I thought you couldn’t make a career with social media, but public relations fell into my lap. I didn’t even know what that entailed! I remember starting my classes and it just stuck! Lucky me right? Then I lived happily ever after.

What’s your favorite part about working at RocketBrand?

I love our culture here at RocketBrand. I started out as an intern, but I never felt like an intern. My voice and my opinions were always heard, and that made me feel like a valuable team member. We also have dogs at the office, so that’s pretty cool too.

What do you do outside of work?

I’m a fashion and beauty influencer! I love being in front and behind a camera so I can capture the world as I see it. I love going out and exploring Dallas with my friends. 

What’s the best vacation you’ve ever been on?

I went to Cabo the summer of 2017. It was my first time out of the country. I sat on the beach until 4AM and everything just seemed surreal. It was so calming and relaxing. It was definitely an experience I’ll always remember.

Whats your guilty pleasure movie or show?

I think I’ve rewatched The Office about seven times all the way through.. oops. 

Best Dallas BBQ?

Pecan Lodge in Deep Ellum. Everything is SO YUM.

What music are you currently listening to?

Rainbow Kitten Surprise! Don’t be fooled by their name, they are the best alternative artists you’ll hear in a while. Also, Khalid because who doesn’t love that guy?

What inspires you?

The badass women who surround me. All the ladies working at RocketBrand are some of the most hard working employees I’ve ever seen. I strive to be like them everyday.

What advice would you give someone looking to get into Marketing and Advertising?

Don’t be afraid to express your ideas and opinions. Even it might be something you say jokingly, it could turn into a great idea. That’s how we came up with one of our core values (thanks Ashleigh). Bonus points if you can guess which core value that is.
