Hey All! My name is Michelle Giannino and I just finished my first week at StringCan Interactive! It has been a crazy and fun first week here and everyone is so energetic and entertaining. My title of “Office Manager” basically means ensuring Jay Feitlinger stays organized and on track here at StringCan and beyond. With that I will also dedicate time to seeing how StringCan functions and how to help create a more effective and efficient work environment. Thank you to Jay, Kevin, and Theresa for making my first week so easy to get into. I am very anxious to see where my time here will take me in the StringCan Family!
Tell us about that New York pride!
Well, I was born and raised in upstate NY – not NYC – surprisingly to many it is a state! I bleed blue and orange as I hail from Syracuse NY. Where it snows 9 months of the year and then the summer humidity is 80%. Boy do I miss that. I root for the Yankees and the Bills all the way!

If you could be any character in fiction, whom would you be and why?

What's your favorite YouTube video?
On a serious note, What are you most looking forward to learning from StringCan?
Digital Marketing. Is that too vague? I am looking to expand my knowledge of marketing and gain the best understanding of how Social Media directly influences businesses. This links right back to my passion of learning.
What do results mean to you?
Results to me simply means growth. The best way for me to track results is in business growth – utilizing the tools that are presented to me to learn and become more effective and efficient at StringCan Interactive and my personal life.
What is your proudest accomplishment and why?
My proudest accomplishment to date was when I decided to pick up from NY (leaving my huge, caring 100% Italian family), move out to Arizona all on my own not knowing anyone, creating a successful and exciting life.
