While her initial dream of “being a superstar” may seem a little broad, we at The Indy tend to think Eliana Britton has far surpassed that goal. After interning for about a year, Britton joined the official team in December 2007 as the sales and marketing coordinator and now does her part to “make sure everybody likes us,” which means working with the sales staff to promote the paper and doing grunt work like counting ballots for The Independent‘s SBIFF Audience Choice Award. Other than The Indy‘s laid-back environment and wear-what-you-want policy, the UCSB communication major also likes that she can hoof it to work from her downtown apartment. “It puts me in such a good mood, and I really feel like I’m accomplishing something when I walk here,” Britton, who also works as a cocktail waitress at Enterprise Fish Co., said. The Redondo Beach native also doesn’t mind S.B.’s temperate weather, saying, “I don’t like it when I can’t walk to the beach; I can’t handle real weather.”
