Putting The 8 In Teammate: Search Influence Welcomes 8 New Influencers

September 29th, 2014 by Search Influence Alumni

Search Influence is happy to introduce its eight newest members. Every month, our team continues to grow!

Andrea-Siegel-ImageAndrea Siegel – Junior Account Associate

Originally from Miami, FL, Andrea moved to New Orleans to attend Tulane University. She majored in marketing and loved every second of her Tulane Experience. Andrea decided to stay because she loves the food, music, and culture that New Orleans has to offer. She has danced her whole life. So, if there is a dance floor, you will 100% catch her busting a move (and even sometimes when there isn’t one).

Courtney-Cummings-ImageCourtney Cummins – Junior Quality Assurance Specialist

Courtney grew up in Oxford, North Carolina and graduated from the University of North Carolina Wilmington in 2011 with a B.A. in Communication Studies. After graduating, she worked as an estimator for a precast construction company. Courtney worked in construction for two years before deciding to embark on a new adventure in New Orleans. In her free time, she enjoys playing in different sports leagues, going out with friends, and checking out live music. Courtney is excited to call New Orleans her new home and to be joining the Search Influence team!

Kaitlyn-Levy-ImageKaitlyn Levy – Junior Internet Marketing Associate

Kaitlyn Levy currently attends Loyola University of New Orleans pursuing a bachelor of arts in graphic design. Before working at Search Influence, she worked at the Mayan Import Company, a cigar shop, and We Are Constance, an indie print shop. Kaitlyn can speak French fluently and, on a good day, can stumble through German. She is known for her giant, toothy smile and good humor, which she looks forward to sharing with all of Search Influence.

Lucy-Stratton-ImageLucy Stratton – Internet Marketing Associate

Originally from northern Virginia, Lucy moved to New Orleans to pursue her bachelor’s degree at Tulane University. She graduated a full academic year early with a double major in English and Political Science. Lucy’s writing has appeared in OffBeat Magazine, Art + Design, Generation Progress, GovLoop, The Tulane Review, and the Tulane Hullabaloo. From NOVA to NOLA, Lucy has spent countless hours in hot pursuit of new mac n’ cheese recipes to try and new happy hours to attend. She is excited to continue her cheese-fueled journey with the support of Search Influence.

Ryan-Schulze-ImageRyan Schulze – Junior Account Associate

Ryan, originally from Atlanta, graduated from the University of Georgia in May 2013. Two days after graduation, he got married. Two months later, he moved down to New Orleans to serve as the Administrative Director for a church plant in the Lower 9th Ward called Rebuild. Ryan has a 120-pound English Mastiff puppy named Marvin who recently had his 1-year birthday. In addition to playing in the backyard with Marvin, Ryan enjoys playing any sport, listening to any music, and taking walks on the levee in the Holy Cross neighborhood of New Orleans where he and his wife live.

SarahJane-Lowery-ImageSarah Jane Lowery – Junior Internet Marketing Associate

Born and raised in Jackson, MS, Sarah Jane went to college at the University of Mississippi before returning to Jackson for a couple of years. After realizing Jackson was just too far north for her taste, she decided to move to New Orleans. As a new transplant, she is still looking for the best french fries in the city. She also likes the color blue.

Sarah-Tan-ImageSarah Tan – Internet Marketing Associate

Originally from New York, Sarah completed her undergrad at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, where she majored in English. She then got a master’s in journalism, moved to New Orleans in 2012, and subsequently fell in love with the city. Prior to joining Search Influence, she was an education reporter, but is excited to transition to a slightly different field of communication at SI. She enjoys all things pizza and cat related.

Steven-deBrueys-ImageSteven de Brueys – Account Associate

Born in Kenner, LA (America’s City), Steven spent all of his childhood in New Orleans. Steven graduated from Louisiana State University with a major in sports administration and business. Before working for Search Influence, Steven worked in New York City co-running an independent film production company while doing script analysis with Warner Bros., Circle of Confusion, and other independent film companies around the U.S. and Europe. During his free time, Steven likes to travel, go on camping trips, and attend music festivals.

Join us in welcoming Andrea, Courtney, Kaitlyn, Lucy, Ryan, Sarah Jane, Sarah, and Steven. We are ecstatic to have them on the team and to see them progress as Influencers!
