We have some exciting news, the McGrath Family of Dealerships now has an in-house marketing agency, Roadmaster Marketing. Check out the Roadmaster Marketing team!
Favorite Work Project: It’s all crippling self-doubt and exhilarating fun. I’ve had a chance to get my hands on a lot of different projects over the years, but graphic design is still my ride-or-die.
Fun Fact: I was named after former motocross world champion “Bad” Brad Lackey.
Hobbies: Running, mountain biking, motocross, collecting hardcore punk and death metal vinyl, photography, podcasts, movies, love the shore (both Jersey & Floribama) and gluttony.
Business Development Director
Favorite Work Project: Any project when we get to use multiple tactics to get the right message in front of the right audience. Also, being involved with team development and having people master skills they had not expected to learn.
Hobbies: I have 3 young daughters that I cannot get enough of, so whatever they think of.
Social Media Manager
Favorite work project: So far, my favorite work project has been publishing the employee anniversaries to social media platforms. It’s a really wholesome task that I think brightens peoples’ days.
Fun Fact: I won a city-wide jump rope competition in fifth grade.
Hobbies: I do a lot of writing and reading— mostly speculative fiction and history books. I am a musician, and I love hiking and camping and spending time with my girlfriend and tiny, shameless dog. I’m also a huge geek, so I like researching science and technology information to bore other people with.
Favorite Work Project: Redesigning some of the websites from the ground up is always fun. Bringing some fresh new life into the websites is what I live for.
Hobbies: Currently, I’m pursuing my Master’s degree so I don’t have a lot of free time on my hands. However, when I do, I like to cross stitch, play video games, listen to music, and watch movies. In the spring, I help the declining monarch butterfly population by bringing in caterpillar eggs and raising them from caterpillar to butterfly. I have raised and released more than 60 monarch butterflies so far.
Social Media Manager
Favorite Work Project: I love anything in the off-road segment of the powersports industry, so it’d have to be creating McGrath Powersports’ motocross club: MPS Racing. It’s represented as the titling sponsor at the Iowan Hard Enduro, which will forever be one of my favorite events that I’ve coordinated.
Hobbies: I think my husband would agree that excessively spoiling our German Shepherd fur baby, Tenley, is my biggest and best hobby. I excel at it and am quite proud. Other than that, I love being on the water whether that be kayaking or cruising, fangirling over Taylor Swift, trying not to fall off my mountain bike or Onewheel, and spending abnormal amounts of time at Homegoods.
Video Marketing Specialist
Favorite Work Project: Directing and filming the Halloween Madness Super Raffle video. It was a blast getting to know the Iowa Used Car Supercenter staff and to work with everyone who played talent!
Hobbies: A few things I enjoy are playing video games, voice acting, painting, taking long drives, traveling with my girlfriend, and going on hikes in the fall.
Marketing and Data Specialist
Favorite Work Project: Helping out with our Halloween Raffle event planning. It was fun to have the opportunity to try my hand at it and I’m really excited to see how it turns out!
Hobbies: Pretty much anything that could be a punchline plot point for a sitcom character in the 2010s. I like to cross stitch silly phrases that catch my ear, roller skate (poorly), and do (though rarely 100% complete) the daily NYT crossword.
Favorite Work Project: Designing and creating all motion graphics for both TV and web advertisements.
Fun Fact: Elijah Wood’s grandma use to babysit me.
Hobbies: I enjoy taking road trips and kayaking with friends. During the fall you can likely find me in Iowa City at a Hawkeye football game.
Graphic Designer / Web Developer
Favorite Work Project: Assisting and acting in the 2019 October Moonlight Madness video advertisement.
Fun Fact: I was born in Sydney, Australia.
Hobbies: In my free time I enjoy finding and sharing new music with friends as well as going to concerts when I get the time. I also enjoy playing pickup basketball at the Y and getting out and hiking to stay active.
Favorite Work Project: Helping with creative messaging, brainstorming, and carpool karaoke!
Fun Fact: I have two middle names.
Fun Hobbies: I’m a super fan of my kids activities, hip hop dance class for fun and catching up with friends over a good dinner!
