Name: Lanier Kirk

Start Date: April 2017

Position: Marketing & Onboarding Coordinator / Client Experience Specialist

Brief overview of what you do: I am the first person a client talks with when they sign up for an account. I make sure clients have a seamless experience throughout their Onboarding process, and I get them set up with an account. I’m also the “doer of all the things” gal in the office. I help anyone with just about anything. In my spare time, I dabble in some marketing.

What brought you to Intent: I started out as Kelly’s assistant, and the more I got to work with Motivator, the more I transitioned into a role here. I’m still trying to keep Kelly sane on the daily but being the “front face” of Motivator is a full-time job, too.

What you like most about working at Intent: The fam! I say that because, working with people 40+ hours a week, they go from coworkers to family. Not a lot of people can say that about their coworkers or work environment, so I think that’s special. Also, one word: leggings.

Hometown: Born in Gainesville, FL, but spent most of my life in Charlotte (going on 20 years!)

Hobbies: Brewery hopping with friends, trying out the newest restaurants, Orangetheory Fitness, binging on Netflix shows and documentaries\n\nTop 3 movies: Titanic, Remember the Titans, and Forgetting Sarah Marshall are the first that come to mind.

A bit about your family: A little fun fact is that I am a fifth-generation Auburn University graduate. My mom’s side of the family has been attending Auburn since it opened. When we’re not cheering on the Auburn Tigers, my family of four likes to enjoy family dinners on Sundays and snuggling with our sweet pup, Lucy.

Favorite food: Queso. Or any kind of Mexican food, really.

Thing you’re scared of: Heights, spiders, the unknown (the future, death, any kind of surprise, aka just not being in control of something … haha)

Worst habit: Biting my nails … ugh

Dream vacation: Greece, Bali, Thailand — any of those would be a dream.

Favorite cocktail: A margarita. Or Prosecco. Or Tito’s and Sprite.
