Learn more about our new ad manager with this short Q&A:
Patch: As an advertising manager, what's the best part of your job?
Grodi: Being given the opportunity to help consult with local business owners on growing their businesses. Online advertising allows a small business to market themselves with large, national companies. Before online advertising came along, that wasn't a possibility.
Patch: What do you find special about Patch?
Grodi: Patch is so incredibly local and has such a social media feel to it. Our readers are very involved with Patch on a daily basis.
Patch: What do you think of Cartersville?
Grodi: It's definitely cozy. The people are so warm and knowledgeable and the downtown is wonderful. Driving though downtown is like driving through a downtown 20 or 30 years ago with all the local shops. I love the people and their stories and I love the downtown.
