Meet Jenava Ostrander, TopSpot Senior SEM Specialist
How long have you been working at TopSpot and what do you do here?
I have been working at TopSpot for over 2 1/2 years and was recently promoted to a Senior SEM Specialist! I manage my client’s paid search programs and help plan, implement, and measure their online marketing strategies. I am also a trainer for our paid search department along with two other Senior SEM Specialists.
What is your favorite part about working for TopSpot?
I love the people I work with. Everyone at TopSpot is kind, smart, and a joy to be around which is hard to find in a work environment. The Leadership Team is thoughtful and encouraging and I enjoy the ongoing training I receive. Last year, I attended 52 internal training sessions and I’m hoping to beat that number this year. Lastly, I really enjoy getting the chance to help my client’s businesses every day.
What do you find the most rewarding about working here?
Going back to the question above, the most rewarding part about working at TopSpot is being able to help my clients on a regular basis. Seeing my client’s businesses grow and be successful is a big deal and I love that! Additionally, as an SEM (Search Engine Marketing) Trainer, watching new Team Members come in and grow in their role is super rewarding.
What does success look like to you?
Success is defined differently by a lot of people. Success to me looks like being 1% better each day, not only in my day-to-day work, but at home with my family and friends. When things get hard or uncomfortable, not backing down but taking a step forward to grow and be vulnerable. I always want to have a learning mentality on how to become a better “me” on a daily basis.
What is your ideal day outside of the office?
Waking up to Barkley my French bulldog. I’m a big coffee and tea person so going to a new coffee shop I’ve never been to. A quick stop into a mall to look for deals or to just walk around. Then grabbing some hot take-out Vietnamese and finding a new show on Netflix with my husband Sean to end the day. But knowing Sean he will want to invite friends or family over. 😉
I also love traveling to other countries and experiencing different cultures. I’ve been to over 12 countries and I’m hoping to go to Tokyo, Japan next! Hosting events at my house for friends and family. Volunteering at my local church. And playing a competitive game of monopoly deal. (Yes, it’s different than traditional monopoly and takes only take 15 – 20 minutes.)
Here are a few things Jenava’s Team Members have to say about her via our internal “Cheers” platform, TinyPulse:

Thank you for following up with our team! We appreciate your proactive questions and follow up to make sure the account was launched on time.
