What’s Up, USANA? is written by a team of regular bloggers and frequent contributors from within USANA and beyond. Daily content keeps readers in tune with the latest and greatest USANA happenings.
Tim oversees operations of USANA’s award-winning social media department, focusing on increasing community engagement and working to ensure the company’s social media efforts are in line with overall corporate objectives. He is a former sports journalist and current Cubs fan.
Boyd is a veteran communications and marketing professional. His experience includes broadcast journalism, publication in trade magazines, media relations and corporate communications. When not slaving over a hot USANA stove, Boyd enjoys participating in team sports, attending sporting events, and spending time with family and friends.
Taylor is our eye for all things design. His primary focus is providing visually appealing content to help fuel the fire for USANA’s social media. Calvin & Hobbes are his best imaginary friends and if he’s not at work he’s probably having a blast with his beautiful wife Ashlie and their two kids Marley and Hukston.
Sarah is the newest social media content specialist at USANA who came to us with a background in food and travel blogging. When not in the office, you’ll have to hunt Sarah down in the mountains where she spends all of her free time with her fiancee, Austin and dog, Dingo.
Angie finds it fascinating to be on the flip side of the public relations scene after spending 14 years in broadcast journalism as a TV news anchor and talk show host. She has two awesome little boys at home and craves adventure. She hopes to meet Big Foot and the Lochness Monster… Yes they do exist… And introduce them to totally radical ’80s music.
Although Misty is the newest member of USANA’s PR team, she is no stranger to the field. She has been publicly relating for the past 10 years at a local trade school. Misty grew up in Utah and especially loves the moun’ehnns and the city of Lay’ehnn. She also loves to dance and is known for pulling Michael Jackson moves without notice. “Hee hee. Ow!”
Mallory has been a valuable member of the Public Relations team for nearly four years, working to build strong, long-lasting relationships with a variety of USANA’s incredible influencers. Away from the office, she finds immense joy playing with her dog Shakespeare (she loves that pooch),watching sappy romantic movies and reading crime novels.
As a public relations specialist, Allie submits awards and works closely with USANA’s 600+ elite and Olympic athletes, developing content for Team USANA’s social media channels (@TeamUSANA) and marketing tools, to promote and utilize them in the field. She’s also a devoted Portland Trail Blazer fan and gym addict (who eats too many cookies) who will, without a doubt, survive the zombie apocalypse.
I am currently in the best position at USANA; I take care of our sponsored athletes. I get to talk with them on the phone and email them all the time. Jealous? I would be. On a side note, I enjoy playing basketball and watching mostly any sport that involves a ball. If I could be one person real or fake it would be Jason Bourne.
Ashley is in charge of everything as evidenced by her insanely long title and lack of blogging. But she resolves to be better about that last part. She thinks Chuck Norris can move mountains — literally.
