We’re strategic, we’re social, and we’re ready to help you tell your story.
Every business has a story to tell – and we’re no exception.
In the beginning there was Facebook. And, that’s where our story opens. In a small home office in a little town in the Midwest, Brand Yourself Founder, Tami Enfield began writing and publishing Facebook posts for businesses. Soon after, clients starting asking her to develop branding materials and websites and, not one to back down from a challenge, she did it.
Then, while looking for even higher return on investment for her clients, she began researching what made stellar social media strategy. The rest is history. We’ve outgrown that little office and are now a full-service marketing agency offering a range of services including social media and marketing strategy, inbound marketing campaigns, and brand development.
Our Company Core Values which embody the way we tell our stories;
1. We take your business seriously, but not ourselves
2. We put family first
3. We do the next right thing
4. We are life-long learners
5. We carry a spirit of generosity
6. We have grit
7. We are grateful
That’s our story. What’s yours?
MEET OUR STORYTELLERS
Founder, Creative Catalyst
Tami was born and raised in Northfield, Minnesota. She lives there now with her husband and two children who don’t seem to stop growing up.
With Marketing and Sales experience dating back to 2001, Tami knows a thing or two about bringing fresh air to an old brand. In addition to her professional experience, Tami is a big data geek. She finds inspiration in trying to figure out why your Facebook ad campaign is a total flop. She is a lifelong learner and loves keeping up with new strategies.
When she isn’t trolling around Facebook (for work–really!), Tami enjoys curling up with a cup of coffee and a good book. She loves the sound of laughter and can’t wait to head back to the beach and build more sand castles with her kiddos.
Addison resides in Northfield with her mom and dad. She loves picking on her little brother and discovering the best filters for her Music.ly videos.
As an entrepreneur herself she has worked to build an online bookstore, a lemonade stand, and crafted coasters made from ceramic tiles for her family at Christmas. She is excited to learn more about social media and is inspired to raise as much trouble as possible. (All in good fun!) Her primary role at Brand Yourself is to provide both emotional and comedic support.
In her spare time she enjoys playing four-square at recess, reading, coloring, and hanging out with her friends. Her passion however is hockey. She loves playing as Wing for her U10 team and can’t wait to get her next hat-trick.
Project Manager, Doer Of All The Things
Tonya is Brand Yourself’s Project Manager and Doer Of All The Things. Originally from Warroad, MN (uff da!) she wore many hats before joining the Brand Yourself team and brings with her a background in marketing, merchandising, and social media. Tonya is excited to work with our clients to promote their business and to strategize the best social media and marketing strategy based on their goals. She loves talking with clients about their business and what makes it special. Tonya is a very passionate and creative person, she feels blessed to be in a position that supports her enthusiasm.
Residing in the country with her boyfriend and adorable toy size Australian shepherd named Trax, they enjoy all things outdoors. Trax enjoys long walks in the woods, chasing squirrels, and sharing ice cream with his mom. They built their home from the ground up, and when she’s not working, you can usually find Tonya sitting on her front porch reading a good book.
Lindy joined Brand Yourself as the team’s task-master, eh em, I mean project manager. She has a background in advertising and marketing, both on the agency and corporate side. She has a passion for detail, multi-tasking, to-do lists and more importantly….crossing off items on said to-do list. But really, she is fun too! She shares a love for photography with Tami and Tasha and enjoys every opportunity that she gets to use her creative eye and bring to life what she sees.
Lindy lives in Farmington, MN with her husband and their adorable little girl, who would read books all day and never sleep if her mom would let her. As a family they love to go for walks, watch movies and discover the next best place for pepperoni pizza. Lindy love-love-loves coffee, fall weather and cozying up on the couch with one of the many throw blankets she has an addiction to buying.
Lindy is excited to be a part of the Brand Yourself team and use her eye for detail to support the team, and add value to every project she touches.
Tasha lives in a small town just southwest of the Twin Cities with her hard-working husband and two small children – a little boy who is a compassionate, snuggly, rule-follower and a little girl who is sweet, spunky, and incredibly strong-willed like her mommy.
Tasha has been a professional photographer for nearly two decades and brings a love for creativity and an eye for art into nearly everything she enjoys (building the “hugest” marble tower with the kids, hanging with friends, boutique shopping, redesigning a room in her thoughts, or cozying up on the couch at the end of the long day to catch up on world events with her husband). She’s excited to be in a position with Brand Yourself where she can introduce her creative thought processes into each custom project.
After traveling the world, Colleen has found a home in Northeast Minneapolis in a restored 102-year-old farmhouse she shares with her partner, a floppy-eared dog, and collection of mud caked running shoes.
Colleen has been crafting strategy, managing social media, bringing order to chaos and shooting street photography for the past 10 years. When she is not writing the perfect Instagram post, researching blog topics or helping clients launch new projects, Colleen can be found training for (and sometimes winning) ultramarathons, rock climbing or planning her next international adventure.
Kelsey is a graphic and web designer with over 6 years of professional experience working with small businesses and individuals. Her goal is to create aesthetically captivating designs that successfully communicate our clients’ messages and inspire others to reinvent their own brand identity.
With an educational background in advertising and web design, she approaches projects with a marketer’s strategy, coder’s logic and designer’s eye. She caters to each client’s unique situation and moves them in the right direction. Her philosophy has always been no fluff, just great design.
Oxford Comma Warrior
Katelyn Regenscheid is a proud owner of English and Psychology degrees, and she’s a staunch defender of the Oxford comma. She’s worked with Brand Yourself for several years in multiple capacities, and her favorite part of working with the company has always been meeting the wonderful clients.
In addition to brainstorming new hashtags and writing press releases, Katelyn enjoys playing with her camera and listening to podcasts. There truly is always something new to learn!
When she’s not proof-reading copy, Katelyn is likely at one of Minnesota’s 120+ breweries for her blog or asking a stranger to pet their dog. Katelyn is a proud Minneapolis resident, where she enjoys running around the lakes, playing co-ed soccer, and practicing yoga.
Jeff has lived in and around the Minneapolis area his whole life. He now lives in Burnsville and can’t say the name of his own town without giggling a little.
He knows that for most businesses climbing the search engine results ladder is more like going up the down escalator. Jeff’s been honing his SEO skills like Chuck Norris (because Google updates its PageRank when Chuck Norris tells it to), and implementing breakthrough strategies for search marketing for over a decade. When’s he’s not obsessing about how to manipulate Google or Bing, he’s probably hiking somewhere or finding another dangerously large rock to climb.
