As a resident of West Midtown, Natalie is one of the rare Atlantans who can walk to work, which is often a point of jealousy for many co-workers at Nebo.

 

April Oliphant

Digital Project Manager

April's marketing background sparked in the entertainment industry giving her insights into both local and national campaigns. She multi-tasks like a juggler and attributes success to strong relationships and communication. As a graduate of Kennesaw State University, she appreciates giving back to the marketing community by serving as the Volunteer Chair for The Atlanta Interactive Marketing Association.


As a native Georgian without the accent, April enjoys long walks on The Beltline and Piedmont Park with her soon-to-be husband and eccentric dog with piercing, blue eyes. When not being dueled for staring contests by her dog, she enjoys watching documentary movies, fiddling with her sewing machine and the company of great friends over a nice glass of red wine.


 

 

Sarah Wolf

Interactive Project Manager

Sarah grew up on a farm in rural, northeast Georgia. As a kid, she was fascinated with computers and taught herself HTML and CSS by the time she was 11. She began building websites for fun until people eventually started paying her for it. She worked as a freelance developer for several years before she found her true calling on the project management side of the trade.

 

Sarah graduated from UGA magna cum laude with a B.A. in Political Science. When she’s not at work, she plays a lot of video and card games. She tries to balance her nerdy side by exercising and being active outdoors.

Carlos Munoz

Interactive Designer

Carlos Muñoz is a Junior Interactive Designer who recently graduated from The Creative Circus. Hailing from Puerto Rico, he dabbled in Psychology before moving to the States to pursue Design. From an early age, he filled notebooks with drawings, even scribbling cartoons into the margins of his homework.

 

In his free time, Carlos and his wife lounge with their cats, The Underwoods, while binge-watching House of Cards. 

Katie McRee

Digital Strategist

Katie joined the Nebo Intelligence team fresh out of college after earning her Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration and a concentration in marketing from Georgia Tech. Katie started out at Tech studying to be a {helluva} civil engineer, but decided about midway through that her mathematics, analytical and creative problem-solving skills would be best put to use in a business environment. Thus, she made the switch to marketing and never looked back!

 

In her spare time, Katie likes to run outside or pick up heavy things in the gym, watch reruns of “The Office”, cook delicious meals, explore new places with her boyfriend (occasionally deep in the woods in a lifted jeep), swing dance (badly), take pictures, work on her blog and tackle random DIY projects.

Calvin Su

Paid Media Specialist

Half marketing enthusiast and half self-proclaimed cinephile, Calvin is a proud graduate of Georgia Tech, where he studied marketing and film. He is eager to begin his professional career at Nebo after holding fascinating internships at a film festival and a government agency. As a member of the Paid Media team, Calvin applies his analytic and creative mindset to execute paid media campaigns for his clients across a variety of mediums and social advertising platforms.

 

Outside of work, Calvin can usually be found (you guessed it) watching movies, studying movies, writing about movies and, of course, talking about movies. But when he finally takes a break from the screen, Calvin enjoys playing tennis, exploring the great city of Atlanta and, like most of his dog-loving coworkers, spending time with his family dog, Mocha.

Abby Hutchinson

Paid Media Specialist

Abby began her career at Nebo as a Digital Marketing Intern and soon after found her home on the Paid Media team. After graduating from Georgia Tech with a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration and a concentration in Marketing, she joined Nebo’s pursuit for greatness full-time as a Paid Media Specialist. Though her loyalty now lies in digital marketing, Abby previously worked as a Marketing Intern and Tour Assistant for a helicopter tour company in Juneau, Alaska. She spent her days there joyfully herding tourists around a glacier, paddle boarding in the arctic and avoiding bears at all cost.

 

When she’s not exploring ways to leverage paid media for clients, Abby can be found with a good book in hand at a local coffee shop, reading under (or in) a tree at the park or catching up on some good reads on the road to her next adventure.

Carole Wood

Paid Media Specialist

Internet addict and ultimate Google fangirl, Carole immersed herself in the endless abyss of digital marketing long before she realized it would turn into a career. She graduated from Florida State University in 2011, where she honed her creative craft and earned her B.A. in Editing, Writing & Media, complemented by a minor in Communication. For the last five years, Carole has held various marketing roles on several places along the spectrum: both agency and client-side in b2b and b2c industries. From travel and hospitality to e-commerce businesses, the roles she’s held have contributed to her wide-ranging knowledge and understanding of the digital marketing realm. Carole particularly loves spending time online observing her favorite brands, especially now that she knows what’s really happening behind the scenes.

 

Digital dependencies aside, Carole has a weak spot for animal puns and well-made parodies. She also really enjoys laughing, smiling, people-watching, adventuring, (poorly) piloting her drone and spending time with her boyfriend and one-eyed hound dog, Odin.

Boyd Jardaneh

Digital Strategist

Hailing from Milwaukee, WI, Boyd is a proud University of Wisconsin graduate who earned his Bachelor’s of Business Administration in Marketing. His experience ranges from serving time as a Digital Marketing Intern, where he worked heavily with reporting in Adobe Analytics, to Marketing Assistant at an automotive group, helping roll out Used Vehicle Campaigns. Essentially, his love of Marketing and Digital led him to the Junior Digital Strategist position at Nebo, where he has put his analytical mind to work.

 

When not delving into metrics and dimensions, Boyd is either tickling the twine beyond the three-point line or slinging on the gridiron. He really enjoys playing both basketball and football. Aside from throwing his body on the line, Boyd can also be found casually biking along the Atlanta Beltline or watching his beloved Green Bay Packers (during the season, obviously…but it's highly likely that he's watching film in the offseason).

Jason Rogers

Backend Developer

Born and raised in Houston, Texas, the son of a medical transcriptionist and a statistics professor, Jason always seemed destined for a career in science and technology. After writing his first program in 4th grade, he quickly developed a passion for writing code.

When not performing as a code master, Jason’s other hobbies include playing music (drums, guitar, saxophone and piano), reading non-fiction and watching weekend soccer games.

She has put her marketing concentration and previous marketing internship to good use by joining the Intelligence team at Nebo.

When she isn’t compiling RFP responses or researching prospective clients, Donovan gets far away from the city and parks herself in the Great Outdoors. Growing up in Savannah, she developed a healthy respect for kayaking, and since moving away from the coast has shifted her energies to bouldering. Despite her locale, Donovan always manages to find a place to hammock, camp or hike with friends.

Laura Newsome

Copywriter

Laura studied English and journalism at the University of Georgia before embarking on a magazine career that gave her the opportunity to profile young entrepreneurs, tennis stars, bestselling bands and even key lime-pie kingpins. She took a creative leap and decided to become her own Peggy Olsen after realizing that marketers were somehow already stealing her best ideas.

 

When she is away from her keyboard, Laura can be found reading, exploring her love of Tex-Mex, planning distant travels and dreaming about a future farm where llamas, pygmy goats and silky chickens abound.
