As the Verity Mom search is moving into full swing, we have gotten the question, “What about dads?” This came up in the last round too(we had questions about Verity Grandma as well) and we respond with a resounding, “Yes!” to all of these questions when they come in.
We have heard numerous stories about wildly creative, funny, talented dads who would make a perfect candidate for our contest.
We would love to see a dad apply. It would great! Remember to get your submissions in by October 11, 2011 at noon at veritymom.com
My name is Melina Young and I am the director of marketing at Verity Credit Union. I love everything to do with marketing, advertising, public relations and social media – especially all the research that goes into making a product or service really work for our members and making sure the right people hear about it. In addition to my time spent marketing, I have a blog and write about celiac disease, which I was diagnosed with in 2010. Basically, I can’t eat any of those foods we all love that are made with wheat, barley or rye.
I have also recently started running and completed my first 5k in 2011. Some people may not know that I used to do a lot of acting, dancing and singing in my life. I was in a Nike commercial with Gary Payton in junior high (if anyone ever finds the footage please send it my way!) and I used to compete as an opera singer in high school. I almost majored in musical theater in college, but I’m very glad with my decision to study marketing!
