We say “Goodbye and Good Luck” to our previous Copywriter and Social Media Strategist, Amanda Shepherd and welcome a new member to the team!
A few weeks ago, Amanda accepted a position as Web Developer at Vermont Public Radio and we couldn’t be happier for her. Her attitude and dedication to the profession has contributed to where she is today. She played an important part on our team and we will miss having her around. We hope she’ll still make it to our Christmas Party next month.
We hoped to fill Amanda’s shoes with someone who possessed a friendly demeanor, tenacious work ethic and valuable skill set. After searching and searching for the perfect candidate, hoping to find the best woman for the job, we found who we were looking for.
We welcomed Emily Bellmore to join the Burlington Bytes team on November 10th. Emily, or “Boo” as some of her friends and colleagues call her, lives here in Burlington and has for fourteen years. She received her Public Relations degree from Champlain College in 2007. It was then that she decided the great state of Vermont was going to become her permanent home. After graduation she landed a job at American Flatbread Burlington Hearth. As she moved from host to server, manager to bartender, she realized a perfect opportunity to utilize her degree. In 2010, she designed a Social Media Coordinator position aimed at streamlining the restaurant’s marketing strategies. Since its inception, she has been responsible for planning events, community outreach and managing various social media platforms.
Emily currently serves as a mentor for the Boys and Girls Club, and has been with the same mentee for almost seven years. In her free time, she loves to travel, go hiking, biking and when it is not summer or fall, bowling in a local league.
We’re thrilled to have a new member join our team here at Burlington Bytes. We believe Emily will help our customers grow on all social platforms while maintaining a voice that is fun, motivating and exciting. We think “Boo” has what it takes, to not only work with a bunch of guys, (no really, the ratio is 4:1), but also a funny, fresh and meaningful attitude that will vibe great with our clients, goals, and workplace.
