We’re delighted to introduce you to a new addition to the WECM Client Engagement team!
We asked our recent hire, Kelsey, to answer three questions so we can all get to know her a little better. Please join us in giving her a big, warm welcome!
Kelsey Marcotte – Digital & Content Marketing Specialist
Tell us who you are:
Hello! I’m Kelsey, and I am very excited to be joining the WECM team. I spent the last three years working in marketing and events in the Winnipeg beer industry, which was a lot of fun. I also did some part-time communications work in the non-profit sector, another industry that is very special to me, so I am very happy to be getting back to that! When I’m not busy taproom-hopping, I also really love to cook and bake, so I am excited to have a new group of people to share my creations with.
What drew you to work for WECM?
I have always felt very strongly about women’s issues, gender equality, and feminism. Working for WECM – an organization that empowers women and helps them succeed – will be such a meaningful and rewarding experience for me. I am also a fierce supporter of local businesses and make a point to shop locally whenever I can – especially for the holidays.
What are three local women-owned businesses you will be supporting this winter?
As the weather gets colder, my need for self-care gets stronger. I’m going full treat-yourself-mode this winter! Nourish Body, Skin & Hair is going to keep my skin soft and smooth through the harsh winter months with their body scrubs, butters, and bath soaks.
I’ve been a supporter of Black Market Provisions since they burst onto the specialty-retail scene. I love all their products from pre-made salads, soups, and ice cream to kitschy knickknacks to brighten up your space. I plan to source some cute and rad things for my new office from them!
I’m a big fan of creating relaxing spaces for myself, and for me that usually means candles! I plan to stock up with JVY Candles Co this winter. They are the perfect addition to a home space, and also make a lovely Secret Santa gift!
