Amy Amaya, CPSM

CRM Manager | Freese and Nichols, Inc.

Why did you pursue CPSM certification?

I wanted to challenge myself. I wanted to become more knowledgeable, not only in the A/E/C industry, but about marketing in general. And, I wanted something that would help me advance my career for where I am now, and where I want to be in the future.

Did you participate in a CPSM study group? If so, what did you gain? If not, how did you study?

Yes, the study group was amazing. It provided support, guidance, motivation, and accountability. It was so helpful to hear others' views and translations of the different domains. It also helped to hear how things work outside of your own firm and see a bigger picture view of the industry.

What would you recommend to anyone considering taking the exam?

Do it. Join a study group. Maintain your focus. Celebrate your personal and professional achievement when you pass your CPSM exam. It’s truly an exciting day when you get that letter in the mail!

Now that you’ve earned your CPSM, what is your next big personal or professional goal?

I hope to continue improving and expanding my skills and focus on the data-side of marketing to improve the efficiency and consistency in my firm’s marketing department.

Fun Fact About You / Hobby

I’m an organization freak. I like things neat, clean and where they belong. However, my kids don’t agree with the whole “where it belongs” theory.
