New Faces at InkHouse

May 01, 2013 Beth Monaghan

We’ve been adding new clients, and to keep up, we’ve been searching for Purple Squirrels.

We’re growing quickly and to do that, we’ve had to pivot just as quickly to adjust to new technologies and the fast-moving media landscape. This isn’t easy, and it requires employees who are not just like us. We look for good writers, big thinkers and hard workers who know the difference between hard work and good work. We rely on their new ideas and new perspectives.

We’re so excited about the new group of people joining InkHouse – they bring a unique mix of backgrounds, talents and personalities, and we have no doubt that they will make a positive and lasting mark on our growing agency. We welcome:

  • Eleanor Crow who brings a bi-coastal perspective to tech PR. She spent 11 years in San Francisco and five in Boston. We love that she digs in early and fast. It’s been a month and it already feels like she’s always been here forever. And she’s also an amusing travel blogger and aspiring photographer.
  • Jackie D’Andrea whose tireless ability to keep up with two-year-old twins is matched only by her tireless work ethic. The parents here at InkHouse are a little jealous of her seemingly endless good spirits.
  • Lee Glandorf who comes to us from the stealthy and buzz-worthy Hopper, where she worked on content strategy. She also brings some fantastic fashion PR experience from the venerable fashion houses of Tommy Hilfiger and Dolce & Gabbana. Oh, and she was also a NCAA Division 1 Second Varsity 8+ Champion in rowing while she was at Yale.
  • Alison Morra who brings a wealth of experience in the world of crisis PR, corporate communications, events and real estate. Her reputation for organization, steadiness and getting any job done precedes her.
  • Lisa van der Pool who joins us after a 15-year career as a journalist most recently at the Boston Business Journal, covering everything from advertising, to startups, to law firms and more. Beyond her impressive resume, she is just a lovely human being.
  • Rachael Tucker previously provided internal public relations for the Military Health System, the central resource for service members, their families and community. A Massachusetts native and Georgetown graduate, Rachael is happy she’s back in her home state – and we are too.
  • Danielle Laurion was a social media strategist for an online media and marketing firm. She has a way of wading through the social chaos and organizing it into something that is not only manageable, but compelling, that even the Type As here admire. Her smile is contagious and we love seeing her here every day.
  • Alex Ingram comes to us from the Scott Brown campaign where he spent many sleepless nights and tireless days coordinating campaign venues and volunteers, wooing the press, and fueling the social conversation about the senate race in Massachusetts. It was hard work. We admire his drive and his ability to rally. To boot, he can already explain SDN or software defined networking in plain language.
  • Zoë Nageotte who prior to joining InkHouse, divided her time between interning for the marketing team at Boston Magazine and the sponsorship department at America’s Test Kitchen. Zoë’s grace, intuition and can-do spirit have already made her integral to her teams here. Now we’re just hoping for some secret recipes on the side!
