This month, the spotlight is on Maribel Leddy, associate content strategist and resident sci-fi guru
Each month, we highlight a Yakkety Yak employee so we can learn more about what they do in and out of the office. This month, we’re featuring Associate Content Strategist Maribel Leddy.
Maribel is on the lifestyle team here at Yakkety Yak. Before joining the Yak Pak, she worked as an editorial assistant at Macmillan Learning in New York City. She’s been part of the Yak Pak since September 2019, and in that time, she has become a vital member of the team. She makes it a point to go above and beyond in everything she does. She’s diligent, creative and determined—so it’s no wonder that the Yakkety Yak core value Maribel resonates with most is purpose. She cares strongly about her work and about the commitment to making this world a better place. For her, having that kind of purpose is essential to the working environment.
At a glance, her typical day at the office seems pretty lowkey, as she spends most of it on the computer drafting social media copy, newsletters and blogs, and keeping everyone around the office organized, but in reality, her workday is both chaotic and exciting. So far, her biggest professional achievement at Yakkety Yak is making Employee of the Month, and believe us, it’s well-deserved! Outside of the office, Maribel enjoys reading science fiction books like “1Q84” by Haruki Murakami and traveling to exciting places. So far, her favorite has been South Africa.
