Wonder what Vantage PR’s Senior Account Executive Jane Vaden is like outside of work? Find out in the post of our Inside Vantage’s Tech PR Team series!
How long have you been in the Bay Area?
My whole life! Well, not really, but I have many fond memories of coming to the city with my friends and family from childhood through adolescence. Riding around on the cable cars, seeing the latest musical at the Curran, and visiting some of the city’s museums!
What are some of your favorite things to do in the city?
Currently some of my favorite things to do in San Francisco include picnicking in Dolores Park, wandering the local farmers markets, or sipping some coffee in one of the cafes in North Beach. But my favorite activity is bopping around the city with my friends – there’s just so much to explore.
What do you like about technology?
I like the pace of technology! It’s always changing. Plus being in the city, I feel like I get to test out all these new technologies that are not wildly available (Yet).
Do you have a go to app?
I have a few apps that are on my top list right now. Lyft and Uber are big ones, getting around the city with the click of a button is a lifesaver! Fitbit is another, I like being able to track my steps and participate in step challenges with my friends. It sparks my competitive streak and I want to win! And I’ll admit it, Snapchat. It’s just a great way to stay in touch with my friends no matter where they are.
If you could play hooky for a day, what would you do?
Skiing! I just love the mountains and being able to fly down a run on my skis is the most freeing experience. Sadly Tahoe has been a bit on the downturn lately, but I have hope! So for now, Colorado is where I want to be if I get the chance to hit the mountains.
