When it comes to integrating kindness, loyalty, family, Judaism, work, ethics, love and success into their life, they are definitely a #MarvelousMaven. And, it isn’t often that you meet someone who really does embody all of those traits listed above and is cute as a button to top it off. J-Vibe Online Magazine has been so blessed to be able to sit down and talk to some amazing people, and we were once again blown away when we got to sit down with Allie Danziger, the owner of Integrate, a Public Relations and full service Marketing firm based in Houston.
Integrate was started in 2009 out of Allie’s home where she worked in her PJ’s for 1.5 years before expanding and hiring her first employees. Now, at 12 employees and still growing, Integrate is considered one of the hippest Public Relations firms that can do it all. What sets them apart from the competition is that they truly integrate their own style of marketing into a complete communications package that is tailored for each client. Whether it is social media, content management, traditional PR, community relations or graphic design, they can do it all in-house and their clients love them.
The office is like a sorority with one token male working there and the office has a great #vibe and casual atmosphere. The main office is open where communication can flow freely and on this day, the big screen TV was set to watch Tropical Storm Bill as it was making its way inland. It’s a family at Integrate, a community and they work together and give back together.
Another thing that sets Integrate apart is that if their clients have a nonprofit interest or are interested in giving back they find the right opportunities that make sense for them strategically. Integrate also gives back by participating in city wide projects for non-profits, such as the City Wide Pajama Day that Easter Seals of Greater Houston hosts every year. Each person in Integrates office comes to work in their PJ’s and donates a pair of new pajamas to Easter Seals. Not only is it a fun and cozy day, but it’s for a great cause and Integrate is working together toward a common goal, one of helping the community.
Allie Danziger Integrates Giving
Allie not only gives in her career, but she also integrates giving in her personal life as well. She is on the board of Women of Wardrobe (WOW), which is a young professionals organization for women who support Dress for Success Houston. WOW members donate volunteer time to help Dress for Success Houston provide interview suits, encouragement, and career development to disadvantaged women. Allie uses her expertise to speak to women about how to move forward in their careers and have active social media profiles while looking for a job. She is passionate about WOW because it empowers women, and Allie believes in empowering women.
Allie Danziger as a #MarvelousMaven
Allie Danziger personifies the #MarvelousMaven in many ways, but it is her positive outlook and spirit and speak volumes. She literally shines when she walks into a room. Her smile never leaves her face, her outlook is always sunny and her bad days seem to never get her down. She lives her Judaism every day through her work, her personal life and through her family life. When J-Vibe Online Magazine asked Allie to sum up her outlook on life, she had to say this,
Experience the experience. Sometimes it’s shitty and sometimes it’s great; but you take what you can and learn, and take those solutions and make sure it doesn’t happen again. Something positive comes out of everything.
We think we should all take a page out of Allie’s book, because her #vibe says it all!
