Hannah here reporting to you live as the new Social Media Coordinator of Seekins Precision. I’m not a fan of the mouthful of a label, but in a nutshell, they’re paying me to create memes and figure out which logo to slap on the side of a coffee mug. I’m hoping to gain some entrepreneurial skills from Mr. Seekins himself and invent a safe yet affordable way to main line coffee, because without it I would be worthless.
I can’t say I’m surprised that I got this gig, because when you have the gall to say “CENSORED, poop, and CENSORED,” during an interview and the interviewer’s laugh instead of looking at you as if you’re the spawn of Satan, you know you’re home.
I’m not a big fan of the mundane aspects of anyone’s life including my own, so I will spare you the uninteresting parts.
Before Seekins made a solid choice in me…
Born and raised in Olympia, WA, I left as soon as I could in pursuit of a degree and a place that didn’t contain so many... I believe we refer to them now as snowflakes. The people, scenery, and overall mentality is unlike anything I experienced before. Also, wearing camo and cowboy boots every day is welcomed, not frowned upon.
I was able to stuff my foot in the door within the outdoor industry as an intern for one of the top hunting apparel companies. This is where I was spoiled rotten and encouraged to sprout my quirky wings. I had realized for many years the constricting corporate environment was anything but conducive to my success as a young professional. I swore I would never “work another day in my life,” and although I’ve been hanging out at Seekins eight hours a day, I haven't worked.
My passions, you ask?
It is no debate that any monumental moment in my life was spent outdoors. Whether it’s hunting, hiking, camping, or feeling the back end of my 4Runner whip around going from pavement to gravel, the outdoors is essential to my existence. I got my hunting license and first buck at the age of 12. I was hooked on the adrenaline produced by the harvest, the peace found in escaping city life, quality time spent with my family, and as a young woman; the power of self-reliance. I was made for this industry.
Writing is a secondary passion of mine, I figured combining the two would be a match made in heaven. Indeed, it is, and in my free time I freelance for different online publications as an outdoor writer.
Alongside guns, nature, and writing is my number one girl, Eb. She’s four months old, has four legs, permanent bed head, and a beard. She’s a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon and soon to be waterfowl/upland bird hunting machine.
Seekins Precision thus far,
There is a constant, yet therapeutic buzzing of CNC machines that becomes white noise as morning passing to evening. Whichever room you are in laughter can be heard reverberating down the hallway. Although we’re a bunch of smarty-pants, you’d be hard pressed to find a more knowledgeable, innovative group of genuine people.
I couldn’t be more proud to work for this company, and to become the newest member of the Seekins family.
