Meet Emily: New PB Marketing Coordinator and Inner Circle Guru!

23rd November 2016

Hello! 

I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself – my name is Emily Wessing and I am the new Marketing Coordinator for the Post-Bulletin! I’m here to make sure that the Inner Circle program is everything you want it to be – so whether I’m organizing great events, strategizing new promotions, or helping you advertise your business – I am so excited to dig in and see what I can do for the individuals, businesses, and overall community of Rochester. And of course, I can’t wait to represent the Post-Bulletin in the process!

A Wisconsin girl at heart, I was born and raised in Byron, Wisconsin – a tiny, unincorporated town about an hour and a half north of our capital city, which is where I attended college at the University of Wisconsin-Madison before graduating just over a year ago. In high school, I was involved in everything you could imagine – marching band, theater, forensics, FBLA, international club, National Honor Society, student council, yearbook staff, and more. Once I transitioned to UW, I continued to juggle as many activities as I could, working as an office assistant and social media coordinator for the University of Wisconsin Gender & Women’s Studies Librarian’s Office while also serving on the boards of various art committees, small publications and literary reviews. While I was at UW, I studied Communication Arts, English, and Digital Studies, and even had the amazing opportunity to study abroad in Dublin, Ireland for a summer! After four wonderful years filled with Badger football games and late night study sessions with friends, I (reluctantly) graduated in May of 2015. Fast forward a few months, I trekked across the country to the Sunshine State and spent a year working on my tan (just kidding, I’m a pale Wisconsinite) as a Marketing Associate and graphic designer at a tech company in Miami. Eventually, after making the cross country move once more, I’ve found myself in beautiful Rochester and into the wonderful PB community, where I’m so excited to be today!

A little bit more about me! In my free time, I have a passion for art and anything creative, so I tend to gravitate toward media (music, film, print, digital, writing) both in hobby and profession – which is why this position is such a perfect fit for me! I love podcasts, documentaries, reading, writing, and traveling – and I can never resist a good farmer’s or flea market. I have my wonderful parents and two sisters back home in Wisconsin (which is fortunately now only a 4 hour drive) and a 6-year-old Shiba Inu named Kenji who is spoiled rotten (by me).

I can’t wait to learn more about all of you as I further my career here at the Post-Bulletin, and if you ever want to chat – feel free to drop me a line! I look forward to meeting all of you and helping Inner Circle become bigger and better than ever!
