REBEKAH OWINGS The Boss Lady, HR, AP and Event Planner: Rebekah started HQO Advertising in her home office in 2008. She was fortunate from the beginning to have a handful of consultants with intimate knowledge of the PERM process and believed she could build a company that would serve this market in a more personal and cost effective manner. HQO grew slowly by word of mouth through the Atlanta area immigration network. Now, Rebekah is proud her capable team serves ten law offices in six different states.
Ad Manager: Elizabeth joined the team back 2012 as a part time employee. She is actually a brilliant artist with a BFA in Graphic Design from Savannah College of Art and Design (Valedictorian), but she chose HQO for the great people and flexible work schedule. She liked us so much, she decided to go full time in 2013, and we’re so happy to have her excellent customer service skills and sharp eye for detail.
Ad Manager: Carrie has the most immigration experience of the whole group — having worked as a paralegal for a total of eight years with several prominent firms. A great ad manager, she is also an in-house consultant when we are navigating the best way to provide for our clients’ needs. Carrie started with HQO back in 2014 and began working full-time early 2016. She likes to claim the MVP award for herself on a monthly basis, and we have no objection.
Billing Support Specialist: Adriane gained experience in immigration law working as a paralegal for two years at Paul Hastings back when they had an immigration practice. She came on board with HQO in 2013 and quickly became an essential part of the team. She recently transitioned to a role on our billing staff allowing more work/life flexibility. A person with many talents, Adriane is working on her Master of Art’s degree in Literary Studies from Georgia State University and is a DIY queen
Documents Manager: Sunni began working with HQO back in late 2013. We needed a dedicated Documents Team, and she spearheaded the development of that operation. She is like the MacGyver of daily life — taking whatever is handy and making something work. She can also charm your socks off with her lovely southern girl accent, which comes in handy whenever we have a media rep whose holding hostage some of our tearsheets.
Documents Specialist and Office Administrator: We added Danielle to the team in January 2015 to support Sunni on the Documents Team and have found her to be an invaluable member of the group as a whole. She is both a rock-star mom of four teenage kids and the person who carefully catalogues and packages your hardcopy tearsheets.
