How has your professional performance exceeded your clients’ expectations?
It is wonderful being in a business and industry where you never feel like you are selling anything. When planning an event, our clients need a great experience. Our team comes in with years of collective expertise and helps plan the entertainment, making the event incredible.
Why did you choose this career field?
I remember DJing at Chadwick Middle School with my mentor Shawn Sedlacek when I was 14 years old. I watched him work the crowd—getting everyone jumping up and down and singing and going crazy. I thought, “I want to do this for my job, and I think I would be pretty good at this.” Let’s just say, I was hooked!
Describe your leadership style.
My business partner, Ricky Hayes, and I are dedicated to our customers. We offer frequent communication, teamwork and positive encouragement with our 100 employees. We are detail-oriented and expect a lot, but we have a soft side and are up for a deep conversation at any time about life and how VOX DJs fits into it.
Tell us something that you recently learned.
I have been practicing the “letting go” mentality recently. There are things you can control and things that you can’t, and that’s OK. In business, just “let it go” and move on.
How do you balance work time and playtime?
I love to work! But when I get a free day, I enjoy playing music (piano and guitar), exercising, surfing in the beautiful ocean, bike riding, and seeing friends and family. I am hypersocial, and I love being around people.
Who are your role models?
My parents, Kathy and Steve Campbell. They are loving and supportive and want to hear the details of VOX DJs. They always have great ideas to improve the business.
