Ant Q&A: Donna Keffer
How would you describe your job?
Relationship Builder. My job is to make sure my clients are happy and help them look good by reaching their goals. I try to know as much as possible about them and their business as possible. I manage Mountain States Hospital System and St. Luke’s Health System, which both do things very differently. It is challenging and fun to find ways to manage those unique relationships and keep both clients happy—both with me and the work that we create on their behalf.
What inspires you?
Giving back. Empathy. I love opportunities to give back to my community. I want to make sure my kids look around and see the world and how blessed we are, and never think twice to stick out their hand to help someone else up. It has become so easy to say and do things and never feel or understand the repercussions of our actions. That hurts my heart. Take a second when no one is looking to go out of your way to make someone else’s day.
What projects/activities do you pursue outside of agency work?
I am married and have two very active children. When I am not working, I am usually carpooling to dance or soccer. Both of my children attend a Spanish immersion school, and my 10-year-old will spend eight weeks in Madrid this fall. We are currently spending a lot of time focused on getting her ready for that adventure.
Why did you get into advertising?
I worked in the hospitality business as a director of sales and marketing for 15 years before I joined AcrobatAnt. After having my second child, I wanted to slow down a little. AcrobatAnt was looking for someone to manage a region of hospitals, and my hospitality marketing experience parlayed nicely to the healthcare industry as it becomes more retail oriented. It has been a relatively easy to transition this knowledge and skill set from one market to the other.
