Lucky Number 7: The 13th Floor Welcomes New Influencers

August 27th, 2014 by Search Influence Alumni

Some may think that the thirteenth floor is unlucky (we sure don’t!), but everybody knows that seven is the luckiest number. This month, there are seven new influencers! Join us in welcoming our newest team members.

Gerardo-MenendezGerardo Menendez  – Junior Account Associate

Gerardo (Gerry) grew up in San Salvador, El Salvador. At the age of 18, Gerry moved to Boston for college where he attended Bentley University. Upon graduation, he moved to New Orleans to be closer to his family and enjoy the local festivities. He is passionate about music, nature, and traveling. In his spare time, he loves attending music festivals, shows, and going on nature expeditions across the country.


Jacqueline-CarterJacqueline Carter – Junior Account Associate

Originally from New Jersey, Jacqueline came to New Orleans to study marketing at Tulane University. Before joining the Search Influence team, Jacqueline worked in advertising. In her free time, she loves to travel and try new restaurants around New Orleans.



John Luckey – Junior Account Associate

John was born and raised in Wisconsin and is brand new to New Orleans. He is a recent graduate in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin and moved to town to follow true love (he knows he will also love his work at Search Influence). In addition to attending school, John spent his senior year at UW doing public relations and communications work for a Madison-based insurance company. He enjoys cooking and producing electronic music in his free time.



Kayla Green – Junior Internet Marketing Associate

Born and raised in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, Kayla moved to New Orleans to study marketing at Loyola University New Orleans. Prior to SI, she worked as marketing coordinator for the music venue One Eyed Jacks. Currently, Kayla holds the honorary title as “the biggest Led Zeppelin fan in the crescent city.”



Kristie Andres – Junior Internet Marketing Associate

Kristie Andres, a born and raised Florida girl, found herself pulled to New Orleans by deep family roots. After a brief run in New York City, she packed up her remarkable shoe collection, and moved to New Orleans. She danced her way through high school at an art school in Florida, and received her bachelor’s degree in Journalism with a minor in dance from the University of Florida, where she currently pursues a master’s degree in Web Design and Online Communications. If she is not online shopping or reading today’s issue of Women’s Wear Daily, she is probably in the gym personally training a client or working out. Despite her efforts to reject accusations that she is just like her mom, she finds herself bright-eyed and stylishly dressed, working in downtown New Orleans, exactly as her mom did at her age.



Laura Mosely – Junior Online Advertising Associate

Fresh off the plane from Virginia, Laura just moved to New Orleans in July 2014 with her husband. She graduated from Christopher Newport University in 2011 and traveled to England to obtain her Masters Degree in Media and Advertising. Before joining S.I., she sold radio and digital advertising for Summit Media in Richmond, VA. A fan of traveling and trying new things, Laura is very excited to start this new chapter at Search Influence in New Orleans!



Matt Young – Junior Internet Marketing Associate

Born in New Orleans, raised in Madison, WI, Matt loves visual arts, language, architecture, and cooking. He has a degree in Visual Arts and Hispanic Studies, and has been working as a freelance identity designer. Previously, Matt managed some highly focused beverage programs, most recently at Cane & Table on Decatur St. in New Orleans. Matt looks forward to meeting everyone and getting down to work in the marketing field.

Welcome Gerry, Jacqueline, John, Kayla, Kristie, Laura, and Matt! We look forward to the many great things you will accomplish at Search Influence.
