Hello! My name is Haley Bosse, and I am a social media specialist for The Deciding Factor, a digital marketing agency. One of my bucket list items is to push one of our medical device clients over the 100,000 follower count on their US Facebook through organic and paid efforts and engaging content. 

 

Something I would like to grow in would be creating engaging and creative content for our clients with a compliance/legal department, while maintaining the professional and healthcare vibe.

Hi there! My name is Lea Longo, and I am the Marketing Director for DePue Mechanical, a mechanical contractor based in Illinois.  A bucket list item of mine is to produce more b2b content and build a reputable social media presence, as the company currently doesn’t have much of one, and increase engagement by 15%.

Hey everyone!  Glad to be here!  My name is Susie Cortez, I am the Creative Director for Mowsse, an NFT Marketplace.  I am also a Fine Artist and try and travel around to display my work, deliver commissioned works and do body paintings.

Which bucket list item do you most want to check off this year? I travel to Turks and Caicos frequently, and would like to have a workshop down there with some of my former students.

Hello!

My name is Amanda (she / her), and I’m the director of marketing and communications at The NROC Project, a nonprofit B2B SaaS company providing college readiness solutions.

By design, I won’t get to this bucket list item this year, but I plan to tackle a comprehensive Italy trip next year. I’m heading to Sonoma, California for wine, food, and outdoors-ing this week, so that’ll have to do for now. 😉

On the work front, I’m here for some inspiration. I’ve been a marketing department of one for many years, and the labor of managing expectations (in terms of how much is possible) and defending enough space to create quality content is getting pretty exhausting.

Hello from beautiful Lexington, KY! Stephanie here, Marketing Manager for the YMCA of Central KY with a focus on content creation. 

Bucket list at work: so many, but getting even 10% more of our staff to share about their experience at the Y on their social platforms.

Personal bucket list item achieved: my family & I spent 2 months in Europe this summer, mostly unplugged and unplanned, so we could say YES to what moved or inspired us. 

Look forward to this community!

Welcome to the community, everyone! We’re so glad you’re here. Feel free to take a look around and join any groups and conversations that stand out. 

@amanda.melton Your bucket list trip to Italy sounds amazing. Sitting where I am in rainy, gloomy Chicago - Sonoma sounds pretty envy-inducing too! 

@stephanie.arnold So cool that you’ve checked an item off your bucket list. What was your favorite part from the vacation? Btw, for ideas and inspiration for your professional bucket list item - check out our Advocacy Amplifiers group.

Hi everyone! :) My name is Claire Terry and I work remotely from Dallas, TX as a Senior Social Media Manager for AllCampus, a marketing agency for universities.

 

I’m aiming to take full asset creation over from our design team to create more engaging social assets!

Hey everyone! I’m Amanda Reitenbach, and I am the manager of social media and content at Lyric Opera of Chicago, where we just opened our 68th season.

 

My bucket list item is to create a repository of evergreen short-form video content during the season that can help carry us through the summer (and hopefully a nice, long vacation! 🤞🏻) on TikTok, Reels, and YT shorts.

Fun a unique brand to work on, you really have to get creative! Glad to see another fellow Chicagoan on here!

Hi everyone,

My name is Erika Heyer-Watts and I am a Social Media Manager at Otis Elevators located at our headquarters in Farmington, CT. This is my 8th year being a social media manager - I was previously at Cigna and ESPN figuring out the social world of sports and health! 

Professional bucket list: I want to establish a firm B2C strategy presence going into Q4/2023. We’ve been a pretty B2B-forward brand so far on social, but when we do lean into B2C content our engagement soars! 

Personal bucket list: Start on the novel I have been planning to write for years and finally take a honeymoon with my husband (we got married in the height of Covid in 2020). 

Looking forward to connecting with you all! Feel free to reach out to me here or on LinkedIn! 

Hi friends! I’m Alyssa Streets, Social Media Specialist for Vibrant Credit Union & Vibrant Coffeehouse. Our coffee shop opens in one month & I’ve had the honor of birthing the social media for it. Top of my bucket list is finding the brand voice for our coffee shop and keeping the credit union's social media interesting and relevant. 

 

Feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn! 😊

@amanda.melton hello neighbor! I actually live in Kirkland and commute to the office in Seattle about once a week. I just always say Seattle since nobody knows where Kirkland is, but they do know the Kirkland brand haha. Someday I’ll live in actual Seattle. :)

So many new folks on this thread! We hope you’ll join us this morning!

@stacyk We will be sharing out an edited recording this week along with some additional resources! :) 

Hello all!  My name is Stacy and I’m the Social Media and Marketing Specialist at Stan’s (and their brands).  I mostly work out of the Milwaukee, WI area.

My bucket list item I guess I already achieved this year, because I left the classroom after being a Spanish teacher for 14 years.  It was a hard decision to make but I’m absolutely excited about my new position and the ever present opportunity to learn, educate, and engage audiences in social media!
