The women of Global Media Desk are taking the opportunity to celebrate International Women’s Day 2018 by sharing their career achievements to raise awareness and forge a better working community.

Catherine Beeny, Director of Marketing

Tell us a little more about your career?

I always loved to write and had a vision of becoming a screenwriter. I began as a coffee gopher on TV and movie sets at Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. After falling in love with online marketing, I took the leap over to the dark side and never looked back.  It has been a wild, fun, and rewarding ride.

What is something you are most proud of?

I am most proud of my children because they are a reflection of the lessons and the love I have  tried to instill in them.

Passionate, perfectionist, and goofball

I became realtor to help a family member purchase a home after their parents lost the one they grew up in. Then I decided to move half way across the country to experience life when I found Optima Juris.

I’m really proud of purchasing my first home at 25. It gives me a feeling of accomplishment and one day, I hope to raise a family there.

Karen Fahr, Marketing Associate

Tell us a little more about your career?
Creativity has always been the driving force in my career. It’s what makes me tick as a professional and why I am able to enjoy my work. I grow every day because of the women and men I work with, they push my designs and writing ability.

What is something you are most proud of and why?

Years ago, I started my own company and though the venture was ultimately unsuccessful it was the reason I found my passion and career path. Without that experience, I may have not found what I truly love doing.
