Meet Monica Pritchard

Tell me about yourself.

Hello, I’m Monica Pritchard. I have a BS in Operations Management and Logistics Engineering from The Ohio State University.

What’s your favorite thing about being an account director?

I LOVE helping companies win in the marketplace. I believe to execute effectively, you must have a vision and a plan that is documented and communicated. People knowing how they intersect with the deliverables and why it matters fuels results and meaningful experiences.  I believe it also lends itself to more fun along the way.

What do you like to do outside of the office?

I love people and one of my favorite ways to demonstrate my love is cooking for them.

What is something others find interesting about you?

I work and play at warp speed.

What are the values that drive you?

Kindness, passion, and perseverance.

Top three favorite podcasts/books? 
  1. When Growth Stalls, Steve McKee
  2. How Adam Smith Can Change Your Life: An Unexpected Guide to Human Nature and Happiness, Russ Roberts
  3. The Innocent, Ian McEwan
Where is your hometown?

Nowhere. I’ve been on the move.

What would be your “At-Bat” theme song?

“Today” by the Smashing Pumpkins

Favorite Quote? 

“Get busy living, or get busy dying.”, Stephen King

“It is better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.”, Whitney M. Young

Who is someone who has influenced your professional career?

As a young preacher’s kid, I read the Bible quite often. One of the people I admired was King Solomon.  He ruled with wisdom. When God appeared to Solomon in a dream and promised him anything he asked, Solomon chose understanding and discernment. In my quest to gain wisdom, I have sought new experiences and roles throughout my career.

What do you hope to gain in your career at LEAD?

Meeting new people, learning new industries and technologies.

What’s your biggest fear?

Bungie Jumping.
