Description

Bronwen O'Keefe, SVP of Content Strategy for Nick Mom, Nick Toons, Teen Nick and Nick Jr. has been with the company almost 18 years, but you might be surprised at how she ended up in that role... With original aspirations of becoming an actress, it was after Bronwen was booked as a "Living Doll" for Toy Fair that she realized this wasn't what she was meant to do for the rest of her life. She'd previously taught nursery school and knew she wasn't done with storytelling, so she landed a job as an Executive Assistant at Nickelodeon. But that wasn't all we learned about this homegrown New Yorker in our iBlog magazine Flip Side interview. She also revealed: The two very different recipes she's known for The best piece of advice her mother ever gave her The new Nickelodeon series her kids are most into right now Why you may here a concert or the Naked Cowboy in the background of our interview Her fantasy of where she'd "escape" to Her kids' favorite saying right now (done with an eye-roll) Which of the three is planning to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro next year! Our favorite Flip Side question is asking our guests the three things they absolutely can't travel without (other than their phone or laptop). You'll always find Bronwen on a plane with: *A big scarf to wrap up in *Chapstick because she gets super dehydrated on the plane *Some dried fruit ("Because you never know when your next meal is coming...and I always like to know when my next meal is coming") To learn more about Nickelodeon and Nick Mom, visit their website at NickMom.com and follow them on Facebook & Twitter at @NickMom.
