20 Questions with Alexya Williams

Alexya started at Fish as our social media coordinator so naturally, she’s become our go-to for all things Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Even for things outside our client work. Accidentally ‘like’ an old friend’s picture while lurking? Alexya’s got your back. Mistakenly comment on your ex’s wall? Again, Alexya’s there for you to delete your tracks. It didn’t take long for us to realize her talent went way beyond social media, so now she’s on the PR front lines writing press releases and pitching media like a machine for clients including Valpak, Kids R Kids and The Melting Pot.

Work you and personal you likely differ slightly. So how would your friends describe you?
They would probably be surprised at how quiet I am. Not that I’m shy by any means, just super focused at work.

And how would Lorne describe you?
Always full of questions, intellectual ones of course!

Bookworm or TV addict?
Definitely a TV addict. I’m a HUGE fan of anything on Bravo, especially Vanderpump Rules and Southern Charm. Here lately, I’ve been watching 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? On TLC and it’s so crazy!

What’s your funniest Fish memory?
A few weeks ago, Rachel and I thought we hit the makeup lover’s jackpot when one of the boutiques down the street from our office carried “Kylie Jenner Lip Kits.” Long story short, Marisa found a typo on the box (along with other tall-tale signs of counterfeit products) and that’s when we realized we’d been scammed haha! Ellie was the only victim of actually applying it on her lips and I swear to you, the lipstick would not come off. It was like paint! We were standing in the office kitchen scrubbing her lips with dish soap cracking up thinking her lips would be bright red forever. Looking back, we should’ve known it was too good to be true.

If you were Lorne for a day, what would you do?
As much as I love happy hour, I’d make our “Summer Friday” schedule year round instead.

Early bird or night owl?
Early bird gets the worm, right?

What are you currently binge watching on Netflix?
I just finished Stranger Things! I can’t believe we have to wait until next summer. Have a good recommendation for my next binge? Let me know!

Tacos – hard shell or soft shell?
Hard shell. I’m all about that crisp!

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
Perfect vision would be awesome (I wear glasses most of the time.) Like, really amazing. Luckily this can be achieved with Lasik so who knows, my wish might come true one day.

If it were up to you, what would your song selection be for conference line hold music?
Not sure if I should admit this but I really do enjoy classical music as hold music.

Bloody Mary or Mimosa? And you can’t say both, although I’d absolutely respect it.
Bloody Mary! Here lately, orange juice has been giving me heartburn. Is that what happens after you turn 25?

You can bring anyone as a date to a dinner party, dead or alive, who’s your plus one?
I’ve always been intrigued by JFK.

We know you can’t sing, but what’s your go-to karaoke song?
SPICE GIRLS! “Wannabe” or “Spice Up Your Life” J

What’s your party trick?
Tumbling! Cartwheels, back walk-overs, back handsprings. That’s the retired cheerleader in me coming out. Go, Aggies!

Pick your poison – straight shot or mixed cocktail?
Shot. Preferably Café Patron. Or any tequila really…

Amy Poehler or Amy Schumer?
Oo000ooohh, I’m a Poehler gal. Parks and Rec is love!

If you could spend a year living anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Greece! That’s number one on my bucket list.

When was the last time you told a lie? And if you say you don’t lie, then your answer should be “right this second.”
I told someone I didn’t get their text message…but totally did. Not even sure if they believed me.

Besides an ice cold cocktail, what motivates you?
My family; they are incredible and I’m so thankful for them.

If your name were an acronym, what would it stand for?
Always up for an adventure.
Loves a good nap.
Easy going.
X – let’s skip this one.
Awesome 😉
