The Trilix accounts team recently added a new account manager for Casey’s General Stores, Robin Kamenjarin. Robin, an Iowa State University graduate with a degree in advertising, brings a great deal of customer service, sales and management experience from her prior position as the catering sales manager for the Iowa Events Center.
When not immersed in her work, Robin stays busy by keeping up an active lifestyle. She enjoys bike riding, roller blading, kickboxing, cooking, playing with her black lab, Bailey, and picking up a DIY project here and there.
We sat down with Robin to find out more about her, including her favorite music genre, the celebrity she often gets mistaken for and why she likes Des Moines.
Pop or country music?
Can I say Taylor Swift? Not because I’m obsessed with her specifically, but more so because she is a mixture of pop and country these days. I love both!
What celebrity do you get told you look like the most?
Back in my high school days I was told I looked like Dakota Fanning, but as an adult, I have been told I look a bit like Reese Witherspoon.
You’re originally from Naperville, Illinois. What is your favorite thing about Des Moines?
I love its originality. Des Moines isn’t overcrowded with chain restaurants and a lot of the typical things you’d find in most cities. It has a unique charm, and I love showing people that have never been here before the restaurants, different areas of town and fun things that are always going on. I also really love the lack of traffic. Growing up in a large city, I was always used to dealing with that, and it is very refreshing being able to make it to work in 20 minutes.
If you could only wear one color for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
Blue. My eyes are blue, so it makes them stand out, and there are so many shades!
