With an ad agency background, she feels right at home managing content and creative for one of our largest social clients. Although she works in social media, she is "very out of touch" (her words) with pop culture... unless it has anything to do with cats or Harry Potter (it rarely does). When she's not working, you can find her diving into a YA novel, cruising on her peloton, or exploring Boston with her husband. She's our Senior Client Delivery Manager, Elaina Roche. ...

Before she started her decade-long career in media, she was a part-time bartender and can still make a mean G&T. When she's not leading the NYC Media Services team for BN, she enjoys teaching yoga (and even used to host weekly "BN Zen" session in the NYC office) and hanging out with her husband, bulldog, and cat in Brooklyn. Although COVID has dampened her travel bug, she's a self-proclaimed airline brat. She's our Director of Media Services, Jessi Patrick. ...

I’m sorry, I have been failing you and you didn’t even know... or did you?
.
For the past several weeks I had been tasked with posting helpful tools and tricks in and around social media marketing. And as you may have noticed... there’s been no posts.
In related news, I did find time for my morning tea, which got me thinking: what if we combined the two?
.
So as of today, I’m happy to announce: Tips & Tea every Friday right here on the Brand Networks page!
.
Leave a question or statement in the comments, then mark your calendars and I’ll put a pot on... see you Friday! #TipsAndTea
