Danielle joined the Outliers team in August 2019. For the past six years, she was a communications specialist with a focus in PR and marketing development. Prior to that, she spent many years as a photographic manager and penned two children’s books, Kylie Meets Cooley with her daughter, and JoJo! What Happened to Your Hair? with former professional athlete Craig Colquitt.
Jen spent her childhood writing stories. She’s spending her adulthood doing the same thing (thankfully) at OC. The Pittsburgh native grew up on the outskirts of Cincinnati dreaming of cowboys and moving out West. After graduating from Miami of Ohio, she spent a decade in advertising and the book industry in Portland before making her way to the Universities of Montana and Colorado, where she obtained two masters in creative non-fiction and fiction. She put her literary education to work as a collegiate instructor before becoming a news feature writer. Over the past 5 years, she’s won multiple state and national news awards writing for publications and magazines including the Wyoming Tribune Eagle, Jackson Hole News & Guide, Casper Star Tribune, Women in the Outdoors and Montana Living. She likes to dance in the office and drink wine (not in the office).
Jess is an adventurous and resourceful graphic designer/advertising guru who prefers natural light and black coffee. Born in the land of beer and bratwurst, she has that iconic German candor, which is often sarcastically met with "Why don't you tell me how you really feel?" When she's not cranking out designs, she's busy counting her shoe collection or laughing maniacally as she feeds live bugs to her lizard, Ziggy Stardust.
Taylor is a photo-snapping, video-polishing, utility player/ baller who loves getting her hands dirty in a bit of everything. This big city lights, native Nevada girl loves sharks and owns more notebooks than any one person could ever fill. If she’s not glued to her computer, she's off on weekend road trips, bingeing on lightly salted almonds and sour gummie things, or stopping for cheeseburgers with her better half, Kylie.
Although not officially involved in the day-to-day operations of our creative brands, outside of the community news streams which she directs, it’s not uncommon for OC team members from every department to seek out Charity’s input and creative guidance. Having worked professionally in the news industry for well over a decade, and winning a hat trick of Wyoming Associated Press Newsperson of the Year awards to boot, she’s no stranger to fact-checking, storytelling and understanding the power and responsibility of influence. A strategic thinker and fast-acting problem solver, she has consulted on projects and crisis management innovations for top-tier clients across the local restaurant, brewery and energy industries, to name a few. She’s been instrumental in helping the agency grow, handling everything from HR to events and public relations. Charity is a helper and a doer, as well as a dog lover and an animal advocate.
She graduated from the Baltimore School for the Arts in Maryland, where she studied classical voice before finding her passion in news. She serves on the board of the Bell-Nob Swing for the Cure nonprofit, which provides financial aid to residents of Campbell County and northeast Wyoming who need a mammogram or diagnosis or are affected with breast cancer. She also contributes a quilt to the Wyoming Cares Cash Bash each year. She’s a fourth-generation Wyomingite who’s guaranteed to know someone in any room. When Charity is not immersed in news, she’s on a boat with her black lab Cash or creating wonders in her sewing room.
Candice thrives on working with purpose-driven entrepreneurs and businesses to help tell their stories through crafted design and user-friendly web experiences. With a BFA in graphic design from Montana State University, she brings over 14 years of experience in the professional services industry to OC, having previously worked as a corporate in-house designer for an award-winning professional services firm in Montana, where she spent four years crafting brands and websites for a variety of businesses, organizations and causes. When she’s not sketching logo concepts, polishing color palettes or geeking out over all things WordPress, you can find her helping her hubby on their cattle ranch in southern Campbell County—with their tween daughter and retired sled dog.
A University of Wyoming graduate, with degrees in Forensic Anthropology and Archaeology, Erika is a Gillette native who has previously served as Vice President of Energy Capital Economic Development and Executive Director of the AVA Community Art Center. Erika and her husband Mark, own OC where she oversees the sales and creative departments, ad development and marketing strategy for the company’s clients and their other companies. She has worked as a marketing consultant for a national marketing company and coordinated full multimedia campaigns for elite clientele including Dr. 90210 and The Cochran Firm. She also worked as a Professional Spokes Model for Molson Coors Brewing Company before returning to her hometown to start a family and several successful companies. She is an avid equestrian and enjoys spending time riding and doting on her thoroughbreds.
Stephanie heads up our cross-disciplinary creative team, where she’s all about brining innovation (and fun) to our process, and our work. In her time at OC, she’s worked on brands including Paintbrush Services, Women’s Healthcare and Energy Capital Economic Development. Before Wyoming, she earned her marketing stripes in Los Angeles naming and brand positioning with brands like Kraft, Truvia and Sony. She’s also assisted California Pizza Kitchen’s marketing department through a corporate buyout and re-brand, and liaised with firms representing the Dallas Mavericks, Dallas Stars and FC Dallas. Stephanie believes in endearing brands to people through organic content and drives our print production. She spends her weekends in the mountains or at home with her fat cat, Bob.
