ABOUT CONNOR SIMS
I’m originally from Lubbock, and a Texas Tech graduate. With an extensive background in retail and a degree in business, I love the ability to help each business we work with in a unique way. and it was the opportunity to work with Shelby at SML marketing that brought me to Austin. I am a jack of all trades here at SLM, rolling with the punches to keep projects moving forward. Spending time outdoors in nature is one of my favorite things to do, even more so on a patio enjoying a great Tex Mex meal.
“Connor was with me during my first dip into marketing! Together the two of us have built up online stores, executed a number of events, and navigated the world of marketing with tons of laughs.” – From The Lips of Shelby Leigh
ABOUT HALEY PORTERFIELD
Growing up I was constantly asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. Looking back in retrospect, honestly, I never knew what I wanted to be, I simply knew that I wanted to make a difference in the world by solving big problems. There had to be real, tangible, black and white solutions to these issues in my eight year old head, and if I asked enough of the right questions, and worked hard enough, I was bound to find the answers. Fast forward 14 years and not much has changed. I think the question we should be asking young people is not what they want to be, but what they want to fix. Working at SLM is quite literally a dream come true for me, in the sense that its my job to get to find creative solutions for our clients business goals. When I am not finding solutions at work, it’s usually because I am finding solutions for homework on either one of my double majors in Political Science or Philosophy from UT where I am a senior, or I am competing for UT’s National Championship Speech and Debate team on my path to law school, Hook’em Horns and TF3!
“Haley is my right-hand-gal and the person who keeps me sane. With her I have been able to grow SLM far beyond my wildest dreams… And actually get a contract together that works!” – From The Lips of Shelby Leigh
ABOUT LEAH WRIGHT
I am a social butterfly! I really just love talking to people, and interacting with them on a daily basis. I have a passion for engaging with others. I grew up in Georgetown, Texas and have spent most of my 20 years calling this place home. I would rather spend my time creating memories that will last a lifetime, than acquiring stuff that will fade away. I use this personal motto a lot when working at SLM to help me reach more business by helping them to tell the story of their company and brand. Music festivals, concerts, road-trips, and coffee shops are a few of my favorite places to spend time. I’ve danced my whole life and enjoy getting to assist in coaching my local team. I’m exploring all life has to offer right now as a nursing major at ACC, and hope to combine that with my marketing skills in the future doing medical sales.
“Leah came into SLM like a breath of fresh air. Her enthusiasm is contagious and her work ethic is a rare sight. I met Leah by meeting her father at a networking event… He reminded me of my dad so I knew it would be the perfect fit!” – From The Lips of Shelby Leigh
“I like to think that being something more is a feeling you are born with. Many of us have it, but few are crazy enough to reach.”
First I wanted to be a singer, then a horse back rider, and lastly a world renowned reporter. No matter what the dream, my motto has always been to go full fledge. From begging my parents to uproot to Nashville, to working 60 hours a week as an unpaid intern, the thought of being something more never left my mind.
It was not until I took those wobbly platform steps into the world of college graduates that it became clear just what that meant to me. So, in an unconventional manner, I packed my things and reimbursed myself in parental living. It took only a year to build a life. A year to move out, and a year to create a growing company of my own.
I want to help people. I want to show college graduates that it is okay to break down when your dream job falls though. And I want to show them that it is okay to chase your dreams. To be broke, and be naive. I want to bring young adults back to passion, and a little further away from this world of participation ribbons and instant gratification we are living in.
