Employee Spotlight: Tabitha Coombs

Meet Tabitha Coombs, Social Community Manager at Cox Media Group

Tell me a little bit about your background and what led you to your current job.

Like many students unsure of what the future held, I spent my college years attempting to answer the question “what do you want to be when you grow up?” It wasn’t until my senior year of college that I could finally, sort of, answer that question. This Is when I was introduced to all the opportunities available in the world of social media marketing. Once I graduated from Georgia Southern University, I entered a role as a social media intern for the Georgia Department of Economic Development. This position strengthened my passion and solidified that I was going in the right direction. After a year & a half in the “after college struggle,” I landed my current position as a social community manager. I truly feel like this position was made with me in mind.

I legitimately love what I do, and I’m fortunate enough to work with an amazing group of people that push me to be the best.

What do you enjoy most about your job? How do you spend your time not at work?

I enjoy my freedom to go in the creative direction I feel is best. I legitimately love what I do, and I’m fortunate enough to work with an amazing group of people that push me to be the best. When I’m not on Facebook engaging with an audience size of almost 3 million people, I’m fueling my love of food and art by hopping around all the art and food truck festivals around the city.

How has Cox supported you in your career growth?

Cox provides me with an abundance of resources to better myself professionally.
