Amy Bassett

Marketing Director at Digitec Interactive

In her 5th year as Digitec's "resident cheerleader," Amy has made a habit of skipping around the office sharing her "sparkle" on a daily basis. Her outgoing personality and fascination with cake means she is always planning someone's birthday around the office. When she is not counting down to "cake time," Amy is busy meeting with folks at national conferences and sharing her love for eLearning. During her time as Director of Marketing at Digitec, Amy has authored numerous white papers, case studies and newsletters. Amy received a B.A. from Rollins College and an A.A. from Valencia College, where she studied marketing and economics.

Personal vice: Using "too many" quotes and exclamation marks!
Useless talent: Can break out of handcuffs
Unreasonable paranoia: Odd numbers
