Celebrating Our Team
While one person can accomplish great things, a team can accomplish greater things. Every day I work at Tripepi Smith, I am grateful for our team of dedicated, specialized and talented individuals. The people I work with have the skills and knowledge to ensure Tripepi Smith is the best it can be, and it makes me proud to help lead this firm. Our team has grown in more ways than one this past year.

In May, we added Bria and Courtney to team Tripepi Smith. Bria contributes her talents in graphic design, photography and creative and technical writing while Courtney contributes her passion for communications and policy strategy. Then in August, we brought on Cameron, our resident video and content production expert, and Vanessa, our newest junior business analyst with skills in both journalism and social media.

Additionally, our skillset has expanded this year. Team members have earned certifications in social media, digital advertising and analytics, as well as trained on public policy, local government, marketing and video production and editing. Not only do we have a larger team than we did last year, but we have more multi-talented team members that have cultivated skills to successfully tell and share our clients’ stories.

As the year comes to a close, I reflect on 2018 and find myself grateful for the group of people I work with. While we don’t all meet up in an office every day, we do connect and collaborate on a daily basis to produce the very best for our clients. The diverse array of educational backgrounds and work and life experiences enables our team to learn from each other and work together to yield a better outcome for our clients than if we had worked alone. Plus, it's a joy along the way.

From our team to yours, Happy Holidays.
