Social Media Manager and Marketer Hellomedio Owner

Vanessa Spriet | Owner & Digital Audience Strategist (Baker City, OR)

I am Owner of HelloMEDIO. We offer social media management/marketing services. My Network of Talent is a group of highly-skilled entrepreneurs helping Baker County businesses launch and grow their business.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication & Media from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University. I am also currently pursuing a Master of Science in Digital Audience Strategy. Certifications include: Google Analytics Individual Qualification, Google Search Ads, Google Video Ads, HubSpot Inbound Marketing Certification, Mimic Social-Simulated Marketing Campaigns.

The love for creating community, connecting and engaging people, led me to digital audience management and strategy. Social media has changed the way businesses are marketing and engaging with their current and potential customers. Corporations, advocacy groups, entrepreneurs, government agencies, community groups, news organizations and nonprofits all need guidance on creating content and managing their social media platforms. This allows businesses and organizations to build large online audiences in order to increase sales, advertising reach, donations, political support and community cohesion.

When I'm not working, I enjoy fashion and make-up posts on Instagram. Pumpkin Spice and Chai Tea lattes give me life. I appreciate weekends with a good T.V. show and socializing with the local Baker City PokémonGo community. I am passionate about Disability Rights and Inclusion. I also volunteer to represent children in court, as a Court Appointed Special Advocate in Eastern Oregon.

Mallory Rex Graphic Designer Hellomedio Baker City Or

Mallory Rex | Graphic Designer (Halfway, OR)

I've spent the majority of my career working as part of a team in a fast-paced, design firm setting (Gallagher Designs + Green Demon Laser). I made the switch to freelance work in 2017, where I have continued doing work for various firms on a per-project basis and also began taking on small business clients. Over the course of my time in the design industry, I have been honored to do work for clients including Nike, Sony, Xbox, Levi’s, Instagram, Adidas, Playstation, and many more large and small companies across the country.

I live and work in the quiet town of Halfway, Oregon on the far eastern side of the state with my husband, son, and daughter on the way. We spend our time mushroom hunting, crafting out of metal and wood, and taking in the beauty of the small valley we live in. It’s been a one-eighty change in lifestyle compared to my Portland, OR roots where I was raised and worked for the majority of my 8-year design career, and I wouldn’t change it for anything.

Matthew Sheeks Digital Marketing Specialist Hellomedio

Matthew Sheeks | Digital Marketing Specialist (La Grande, OR)

Hi, I'm Matt. I'm a professional athlete turned professional writer and digital marketer. My skill is to take one of the most difficult and time-consuming parts of your marketing efforts – web design and website content development – and turn it into a breeze.

I have two primary goals - (1) make sure your site not only looks good, but also gets the exposure, traffic, and engagement that you want, and (2) help grow the Eastern Oregon Economy by implementing sound digital marketing principles.

My experience and certifications include an MBA and BBA from University of Portland, Hubspot certifications in Growth-Driven Design, Inbound Marketing, and Hubspot Sales Software, as well as the Email Marketing certification from The Ray Edwards Copywriting Academy.

Jessica Sheeks | Website Designer & Copywriter (La Grande, OR)

I'm a French speaker, art lover and outdoor enthusiast. I'm also a California transplant (please don't hold it against me) who relocated to La Grande to be with my husband, Matt. It didn’t take long for me to fall in love with the exceptional beauty of Eastern Oregon and the friendliness of its communities. Also the nonexistent traffic.

I earned a BA and MA in French from San Jose State University. Curiously, it turns out that studying a different language and culture gets you more in touch with your own, which has been surprisingly useful in this pocket of the world, and in digital marketing..

My goals are to 1) create beautiful visual assets that showcase your unique brand and (2) communicate the value of your product or service in a way that informs and attracts customers. Whether it’s copy for your website, blog, email campaign or social media presence, I love and excel at writing.
