Kayla Bertucci – Public Relations & Content Specialist
With seven years of experience in public relations, Kayla thrives in a dynamic media environment. She enjoys working with a variety of individuals on many issues, providing a nuanced approach to her clients’ communication needs. Kayla’s “people person” nature was her greatest asset at WGNO ABC 26, Children Hospital New Orleans and now at People Who Think. She also provides voice over work for radio, tv and digital ads.
Kelvin Torres – Video Editor
Kelvin’s passion for editing started as a teenager trying to make music videos. This led to an 11 year-long production career where he learned under some of the most talented editors in the industry. When you take an amateur’s passion and mix it with professional training, you get a master of visual storytelling and one we’re excited to employ for our clients at People Who Think. He “enjoys the opportunity to be creative every day.”
Jamie Crochet – Accounting Specialist
With an accounting degree from Southeastern and years of experience in corporate finance, Jamie is one of the newest additions to the People Who Think team. Our creative talent is only as good as our financial diligence, and Jamie’s attention to detail is a crucial asset as we expand and push new boundaries in the coming years. Outside of work, Jaime stays active with regular exercise and by being involved with her children’s many sports interests.
Jennifer Pellegrin – Accounting Specialist
Here at People Who Think, we pride ourselves on finding talent with a non-traditional background. Jennifer became an accounting specialist after two decades of valuable experience. During that time, employers noticed her dedication and resourcefulness and gave her the responsibilities to match it. We noticed it too and gave her the important role of assisting in the management of our finances as we expand into an incredibly exciting future. She is also especially proud of her oldest daughter who will graduate from one of the top art schools in the country this year.
Sydney Lyon – Graphic Designer
Sydney’s keen eye for design and creativity has evolved through her years of expertise as a graphic designer for both local and national brands. Her style of chic and modern “with a twist” gives a brand-new element to each creation. These eye-catching designs are what make People Who Think stand apart from the rest with innovative ideas and conceptions for every client. When Sydney’s not in the design studio, she’s catching up on her favorite novel or playing with her dog, Maddie.
