“Back in 2011, my organization challenged me with an opportunity to lead the development of our agency’s programmatic media-buying solution,” says Woodland-De Van. “At the time, I didn’t have the first inkling of what programmatic media buying was.” After immersing herself in the topic, Woodland-De Van accomplished her task. “This experience taught me not only that you really can accomplish anything you set your mind to, but also to not get intimidated or shy away from something you aren’t familiar with,” she says.
Woodland-De Van works closely with her team of more than 40 employees on the development and success of their individual careers. The majority of her staff happens to be female, which has put her in a position to help women in her field succeed.
