The Pets of Velocity Agency

You’ve met all the humans of Velocity, but now it’s time to meet the Veloci-dogs! In honor of National Dog Day, we thought we’d introduce you to our favorite furballs!

 

Layla Sutton, Social Media Manager

“This is Brother! I named him this because I have a younger brother who lives in VA that I am really close to and when I moved to New Orleans it was hard to not live in the same area as him. I got him in January when he was 6 weeks old so that I would have a walking partner and someone to explore the city with and he has become my best friend. Brother loves food more than I do which says a LOT. His favorite things to do is steal cotton balls from the bathroom, go to the dog park to play with other dogs and he’s actually a really good cuddler. His favorite toy is his giant tennis ball. ”

Beau Runnels, Editor

“I never had a dog, but my dad did raise a wolf. Her name was Feather and she was a sweetheart. She loved children, especially the chewy ones. This is a photo of my dad reading to some school kids, Feather was there to protect him in case one of the little thugs tried to knife him. Feather had a scar on her nose from when she found out porcupines were indeed not made from pork. She called them Needle-Rats from then on… Feather also talked, but cursed a lot. RIP Feather 1995-2011”

 

Linda Nickerson, Office Manager
“This is my dog Abby.  She is 5 years old and was a rescue from the 9th ward in New Orleans.  She has two cat brothers (Coal and Stanley) to protect her!!”

 

Josh Spencer, SEO Manager
“All I have to contribute is my family’s Mini Australian Shepard. His name is Percy, and he cries so incessantly when he has to ride in the car that we have to feed him little doggie valiums to calm him down.”

 

Alex Dufresne, Jr. Editor
“This is my sister’s boxer, Balboa Seabiscuit, but we call him Bo for short. His hobbies include staring at interesting things off camera and relaxing on his private Yacht. He is also the reason I refer to Beau Runnells as “Human Beau” when talking to my family. I know I could just say “Dog Bo” instead, but that would be silly. “

 

Alison Pitre, Account Manager
“Meet Chuy, we rescued her from the streets of New Orleans about 4 years ago and she has had my heart from the first day I saw her. She is the sweetest little Chihuahua in the world! On a fat day, she is 5 lbs. She howls like a wolf and spins like a ballerina when excited. Meet Gidget, she is half Chihuahua and half Corgi. We adopted her from the SPCA 3 years ago. Don’t let her teddy bear good looks fool you…she will tear your face off. Meet Tchoupitoulas, we adopted her from the SPCA about 5 years ago. She is a pit bull mix. Tchoup likes to spend her days laying on the sofa watching Steve Harvey. She also likes to go for short walks on the levee. She loves playing with Chuy.  She is afraid of cats.”

 

Emily Kranz, Media Assistant
“This is Dexter. He’s a 2 1/2-year-old Shih Tzu. His hobbies include indulging on treats, chasing frisbees that are bigger than he his, and pretending he’s from Endor by rocking his Ewok costume.”

 

Danielle Doty, Social Media Manager
“Spooky and Savage were the only two in their litter. They are long haired dachshunds who are inseparable and love to get into trouble. I originally planned only to adopt one, but then I came home with two puppies. Oops! Spooky is full of energy and always up for an adventure, whereas Savage is patient and gentle (except with lizards).”

 

Chase Treadway, Web Developer
“This is Delta, AKA ‘Hot mess’. AKA ‘That’s not your food.’ AKA ‘no ma’am.’ AKA ‘I’m sorry, my child is a con artist, and I’m not responsible for those genes'”

Juliana Joins Us!

Here at Velocity Agency, we’re always moving and growing, but we always find time to welcome our newest members. Now we welcome our newest web designer Juliana Katz!

Juliana comes to us from Rio (as in Brazil, yes that Brazil) with a BA degree in Communications with an emphasis in Advertising and Marketing. Even before coming to the United States, she quickly developed plenty of skills in user experience, user interactions, and coding and developing websites. Her love for web design and interacting with customers on social media platforms shine through her work.  Juliana soon earned the title of Art Director with her digital design expertise proven by her skills in designing ads and brand collateral.  Even in an entirely different country, she was clearly perfect for us.

Before working at Velocity Agency, she worked as a digital designer at Interação Inteligente, an in-house agency for a corporate bank in Brazil, and C Comunicação, an advertising agency focused on designing and developing marketing projects for restaurants. After learning all that she could about design and digital marketing, she eventually came to the United States to refine her English at the University of New Orleans. She figured that UNO and New Orleans would be the best places to learn the language properly, and I can’t say that I disagree!

As a web designer with Velocity Agency, Juliana is building intuitive and visually appealing websites for a diverse client portfolio. Her skill with custom CSS code and her knowledge of backend systems further bolsters the strength our expert web design team!

In her downtime, Juliana enjoys plenty of outdoor activities like going to the beach. Although that’s probably the one thing the city New Orleans doesn’t offer, she’s certainly glad to be here. And we are even more pleased to have her work with us at Velocity.

Never Fear! Lindsay is Here!

We just never seem to stop growing here at Velocity Agency. Today, you get to meet Lindsay Kornick, our latest copywriter!

Lindsay was born in Chalmette, Louisiana, making her a proud member of the “Chalmation Nation” as her parents call it. She graduated from Mount Carmel Academy in 2012 and later earned a degree in English and Digital Media Studies at Tulane University. Since then, she has worked as a freelance writer covering subjects ranging from TV reviews to national events to what Kim and Kanye have been up to on the weekend. She’s just that experienced!

Nowadays, Lindsay spends her time honing the craft that combines her two great loves: learning about new subjects and writing about them. In her downtime, you can usually find her watching television, spending time with her local family, and, of course, eating. Since Lindsay has lived around the New Orleans area her entire life, she has nurtured a love of beignets, jambalaya, and boiled crawfish as well as her dad’s famous Doberge cakes. Oh, and did we mention she’s a twin? Yep, her sister Lauren works nearby as a data analyst for Causeway Solutions in Metairie. There is so much of them to go around!

We’re certainly looking forward to getting to know her here at Velocity Agency.

Chasing the Dream

 

I guess the phrase should really be another day, another new employee to celebrate at Velocity Agency! Here we say hello to Chase Treadway who works as our newest web developer.

Chase hails from Mandeville, Louisiana but has lived all over the place from his time spent as a military brat. Originally he earned a bachelors degree from the University of Mississippi with a focus on Hospitality Management. However closely following his college commencement Chase suffered a Spinal Cord Injury and thus adapted his skillset to better suit a computer based profession. Today, he still lives in nearby Mandeville which just goes to show how much our little state can stick out in the world. Or maybe he’s just a fan of the food!

Outside of work, he says he has no spare time, something I’m sure everyone at the office can all relate to around here, but, unlike everyone at the office, Chase also mentors individuals with newly acquired disabilities. He has found himself collaborating on some pretty cool projects, from 3D printing prosthetic hands to public speaking at local schools promoting “abilities etiquette.” Clearly, this is a guy who welcomes a challenge.

I’m sure I speak for everyone when I say we’re glad to have you aboard.

A Day At Dave & Buster’s

What could be more fun than a job at Velocity Agency? After this past weekend, I doubt you could answer anything else. On June 16th, the people behind Velocity Agency took a well-deserved break at the city’s latest place for fun and games: Dave & Buster’s.

The day started at ten in the morning right when the place opened to get the most out of the little retreat from the office. Employees were treated to a private party room and a good lunch complete with tacos and burritos before spending a day in the arcade. Games at Dave & Buster’s include everything from the classic Pac-Man and skeeball to Mario Kart and Pump It Up. And that’s not even mentioning the available bar right next to the party room. Fortunately, Velocity took care of the drinks!

Of course, having the whole agency together also made them qualified for the Dave & Buster’s Team Building Challenge. This challenge placed four teams of six employees against one another on four different arcade games for prizes at the end of the day. After a few rounds of Mario Kart and shooting hoops, you would be surprised at who would become a valuable player. Once the challenge was complete, and prizes were doled out, employees were free to spend the rest of the day using their provided Power Cards on any of the available games. With unlimited free credits on the card, that led to quite a few good hours at the arcade. And that gave us quite a few good photos for our social media page!

Whether you were in your 20s, 30s, 50s, or 60s, the day at Dave & Buster’s was considered a success all around the office. Let this be said about the company; they know how to give its employees a good time.

Hello, Emily!

Every other week, we seem to gain a new member of the Velocity Agency family! This time around, we are proud to welcome Emily Kranz, the newest Media Department Assistant. So, who is this Emily that we speak of? Well, we’re here to find out!

Emily grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana and continues to live there today working with us! Of course, looking at her history, there’s no denying the city’s role in her life. She graduated from Mount Carmel Academy in 2009 and later went on to earn a degree in Film, Theater and Communication Arts from the University of New Orleans in 2013. Most recently, she worked as a concierge agent at The Woodhouse Day Spa where customer service played a big role in her life. Just goes to show that when it comes to some people, sometimes you just can’t take the New Orleans out of the girl.

Outside of the office when she isn’t making calls and cranking out numbers, Emily is also a major animal lover! With her love of New Orleans and all creatures on four legs with fur, it sounds like she’s going to fit right in here at Velocity Agency.

Let’s Talk About Layla!

Who’s ready to meet another proud employee of Velocity Agency? I know we always are! Today we give the spotlight to Layla Sutton, our newest addition to the social media department!

Layla hails from a small town in Snow Hill, North Carolina, but her love of music brought her to New Orleans. Upon her first trip to New Orleans, she fell in love with the food, culture and most importantly the vibrant musical climate. Growing up doing music in church, she transitioned to being on her high school drumline and continued her passion for music education at East Carolina University. In that time, she was always writing in journals. She took up blogging and social media when Myspace made its debut (remember that?).

Since she moved to New Orleans almost three years ago, things changed very fast. Layla started working part time for her father with his media and marketing business that he and his wife had created. Layla began to notice that her love for working with people combined with taking loads of psychology and education classes in college made her a natural at working in marketing. She’s always liked monitoring people’s behaviors, and now she’s doing it through a computer screen. She has previously taught preschool music at St. George’s Episcopal School as well as music at the Louisiana Academy of Performing Arts where she still teaches percussion lessons now in the afternoons and on the weekends.

Outside the office, she is also the lead singer for the New Orleans Ragweeds, the percussionist and vocalist for Sunshine Brass Band, drum set for the Tiny Furniture Ensemble, and has played with the New Orleans Volunteer Orchestra. When she’s not working, she’s also checking out new brunch spots, watching live music, laying by a body of water somewhere, and playing with her blue heeler puppy named Brother. Sounds like a great new addition to the team!
