Meet Chelsea Murillo, our newest AAE!

Our latest Blanc & Otus New Hire Interview is with none other than our new AAE Chelsea Murillo! She was kind enough to take time out of her crazy pitching schedule to answer our rapid-fire questions, which she handled like a pro (though we stumped her on how they ship Styrofoam). According to her, the hardest question to answer was what’s your favorite kind of cheese? To which she finally decided Brie.

This Diet-Coke-and-Moscow-Mule girl hails from San Mateo and is a proud big sister and mom to her dog and cat (hi, Lila and Max!). When she’s not jamming to The Lumineers (in Italy, no less), she probably has a Justin Bieber song stuck in her head. If you want to get on her good side, be sure to say “fabulous” a lot, but never “qupon.” Because it’s COUPON! Intrigued? Be sure to check out her Q&A video below!
