I’ve been blogging a lot lately on GovLoop, but haven’t been blogging as much about the behind the scenes work going on the GovLoop side.
It’s been really amazing. There have been a ton of great changes in the last 6 months including:
– D.C. office space – located near the White House, where we make the magic happen. Stop by if you around as we’d love to host you and take a photo for our sweet photo board – Had our 1st intern – Attia Nasar, who kicked butt – Added Stephen Peteritas to the team, our online producer, mastering those sweet photos in the carousel, those great newsletters, and new initiatives like city-based groups. – Launched a bunch of new features – comments in emails, per diem calculator, GovUps, with a bunch more coming (new iphone app and member features)
Well, I’m excited as we have 4 new faces that just started on the GovLoop team and I wanted to share with the community.
And yes…we’ve tipped the male/female ratio…
First off, Lauren Modeen, who many may be familiar with as she writes a great blog on GovLoop and has been active in the Gov 2.0 scene in her previous role as Marketing Manager, Computech and Social Media Chair for YAFCEA Bethesda. She’s joining us full-time today as Manager of Online Strategy, where she will be bringing her creative skills in helping government succeed in their online community management activities (like our Census GovLoop group).
Second, we have an amazing trio of GovLoop fellows/interns for the fall semester.
Shannon Donelson, recent Auburn grad in Communications, huge Auburn football fan, social media guru, and DC newbie.
Julia Tanasic, Master’s student at Syracuse University Maxwell School, Fullbright Fellow, formerly of World Economic Forum, and recent Potbelly sandwich convert.
Judy Siegel, Master’s student at University of Texas, MS in Human-Computer Interaction, Code for America finalist, former fellow at DNC Innovation Lab…(NOTE – She is not actually Judge Judy)
