Byong Bark

Kelly joined us at Social Envi as a Community Manager and soared into a position of thought leadership and established herself as a hard working, independent and invaluable team member. She had a knack for engaging with communities and handled our clients with grace and built great rapport. She was so well organized and took such strong initiative that she appeared to be a bit of a mind reader. Combined with her strategic social media expertise she was a powerhouse for our Agency.


La Buena Vida Website Re-Design

La Buena Vida was operating on their premiere website for 7 years. The user-experience was extremely dated, links were broken, and a lot of information was repeated. I redesigned the website on Squarespace providing an overall better user-experience and modern approach.

Sharky's Woodfired Mexican Grill

Sharky's Woodfired Mexican Grill is a quick-serve chain.. They strive to use almost all organic and local ingredients. I strived to keep their social content fresh and exciting. It's easy to shoot menu items, I liked to have some fun and create beautiful images with engaging and humorous copy.


Re-purposing some of today's most famous pop song lyrics or timeless movie quotes to apply to Belkin products. Easily one of my favorite campaigns to brainstorm. The final (approved) content pieces were creative and hilarious pop culture references incorporated with Belkin products.

PTY Life Feature for La Buena Vida

I reached out to the founder and offered him a free two night stay in exchange for a month-long feature on the website, plus additional posts on the social platforms. His visit went phenomenally and we saw an increase in reservations due to the feature and promotion.


Wi-Fi Everywhere! This is a re-ocurring theme in the Linksys social content. To keep Wi-Fi fun and relatable, I would merge the Wi-Fi symbol into every day surroundings. I also wanted the images to serve as a reminder that with Linksys, your Wi-Fi opportunities are endless and everywhere.

Sans Souci

In order to help gain customers and create a buzz around the brand, I created an Instagram Influencer campaign. Once the bloggers began posting pictures in Sans Souci clothing and tagging the account, Sans Souci saw a spike in website traffic and an increase in sales.
