The Social Lights are excited to welcome two new Community Managers to the team!

Meet Karly Wallack and Martha Kirby

Karly Wallack - The Social Lights Karly Wallack

Karly is a student at the University of Minnesota studying Professional Strategic Communication. Her experience coordinating marketing efforts for homecoming, Spring Jam, and other large-scale events at the U of M has sparked her passion for the communications field.

As a social media enthusiast and avid bibliophile, Karly loves the sociability of the web and is inspired by the imaginations of authors who have captured her attention through their work. She loves learning about eccentric ideas, and her Cultural Anthropology minor has motivated her desire to understand the world through the eyes of others.

Outside of her career aspirations, Karly has a weakness for otters and narwhals, and a shameless love for How I Met Your Mother. She is a Minnesota sports fan (despite how many times it may break her heart) and enjoys running through the Twin Cities.

Karly is looking forward to pursuing her goals with The Social Lights. She can’t wait for what’s to come as she kicks off her new position!

Martha Kirby - Field Specialist at The Social Lights

Martha Kirby
{Yes, another Martha!}

Martha grew up performing circus arts and dance with Circus Juventas. This experience allowed her to discover her creativity through physical expression at an early age. She has also been a life-long vegetarian with a strong passion for environmental awareness.

When Martha began her academic career at the University of Minnesota she discovered that her love for expression translated well into visual work. She decided to pursue a degree in Strategic Communication – Advertising with minors in Design and Sustainability Studies. She loves to travel and has a bad case of wanderlust.

She is ecstatic about her opportunity to work with The Social Lights and believes that it will be an invaluable learning experience for her future career in the advertising field.

Tweet them a warm welcome – @KarlyWallack + @Martha_Kirby!
