Mandy Legarreta

Marketing Manager & Head of Partnership Development

I graduated with an elementary education degree but found myself more drawn to business right from the start. I have done sales/marketing/events for quite a few different types of companies and vertical markets — as well as written 2 children’s books. (Ask me about them sometime.) I love the sales and marketing aspects of business. Seeing a business grow and helping come up with innovative and successful ideas are what I live for. I am currently looking to grow our own partnerships and referrals for The Newsletter Pro. If you have ideas or want get involved — please let me know.

Dan Syvertson

Editor

Hello, I’m Dan Syvertson. I hail from the city of Fargo, in the Great Plains state of North Dakota. Although the winters are bitterly cold, the people are warm and friendly. I’ve spent the past six years teaching English to high school students, but am now excited to be a part of The Newsletter Pro team. During my spare time, you can find me poking around a garden or hiking through the Boise foothills. On lazier days, I can be found sipping a cup of coffee as I read a good book or mashing buttons on my Nintendo video game system.

    Hello! My name is Rebecca Zeller. I recently relocated to Boise from Atlanta (originally from Florida).  I am a Nova Southeastern University graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology. While going to school, I interned at a cancer research lab and worked as a manager for Orangetheory Fitness. My career with Orangetheory Fitness was what took me to Atlanta after graduating.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling, being outdoors, watching movies and going to sporting events.

      Tyler Brewington

      Editor

      Hi! I’m Tyler Brewington, sworn enemy of passive constructions and misplaced apostrophes. I studied writing and linguistics as an undergraduate at Boise State and Portland State, and ultimately got an MFA in poetry from the Vermont College of Fine Arts. I’m a contributing editor at a new poetry press called Gramma, and I’ve also written professionally for Atelier Ace and Wieden + Kennedy. When my nose isn’t in a book it’s usually hiking around in the foothills, in front of a movie screen, or nuzzling my cat, Joan, who is the world’s best and prettiest.

        Haiya Rab

        Receptionist

        Hello! My name is Haiya Rab, your friendly Canadian from good ol’ Tronno (yes that is how it is pronounced!). I graduated from McMaster University with a degree in Peace Studies and Religious Studies and somehow ended up working in an engineering firm in procurement. My “raison d’etre” is my rambunctious five year old daughter and in the rare instance that I am not busy with her, I am a crime fighting ninja (just kidding!) I like to read, develop recipes, cook and dabble in amateur photography and art.  I am so excited to start working with The Newsletter Pro 🙂

                  Matt Freeman

                  Writer

                  Hello! I’m Matt Freeman, and I’m pumped to be writing for The Newsletter Pro. I’m a University of Idaho graduate with a degree in English with an emphasis in creative writing, mainly poetry. Since then I’ve done the typical frustrated artist thing, working for a year as a grocery stocker at a co-op followed by a stint living in Thailand teaching English to wired little kids for a year. I’m completely obsessive about music, video games, books, and TV, and I spend way too much time reading about all of the above.

                    David Smith

                    Campaigns Assistant Manager & Team Lead

                    Hello! My name is David James Smith and I am beyond excited to be a part of The Newsletter Pro! I grew up in Idaho and graduated from Centennial High School and went on to Albertsons College on an athletic scholarship. While in college I discovered I have an addiction to work. After school I moved to Las Vegas where I learned the art of customer service and hospitality in what was at the time the largest and highest growing nightclub in the states. I brought the knowledge learned from the best experience makers in the world back home to Boise where I became involved in producing live events and concerts. I have produced well over 800 successful live events. In my free time I spend it with my amazing 5-year-old Emmalynn, my misses Jordan and our two boxers, Casanova and Xavier. Depending on the season, you’ll more than likely catch me at a music festival or up in the mountains chasing the next snow storm.

                        Marketing Coordinator

                        Hello all! My name is Kendall Forge, ranch and hot sauce enthusiast. I’m a recent graduate from the University of Idaho (GO VANDALS) with a double major in Marketing and HR Management. Throughout my time in school I worked as a human resource intern for Vista Outdoor and as a sales rep for Northwest River Supplies. However, my last “job” was working as a river guide in Stanley and let me tell you it was an absolute blast! I’m a country girl through and through so when I’m not working I love to do anything outdoors, but I must say I’m never opposed to binge watching The Voice and The Office.
