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 manages the content for the award-winning What’s Up, USANA? blog — yes, this one — and is thankful his master’s degree in journalism is being put to good use. He is a former sports journalist and current Cubs fan. This could be the year for the North Side.
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.
Jessica coordinates news from management and writes for What’s Up, USANA? A former copy editor, Jessica is getting used to Twitterspeak and its “interpretation” of the English language. When not at work, she’s probably off doing what she likes best — reading a book.
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 is a professional actress who has starred in award-worthy Fun Friday videos and other stuff. In her spare time she submits award applications for USANA, plays kickball, and thinks wizards, witches, and vampires are real.
Allie thinks USANA is an amazing place to work and she is grateful to have the opportunity to put her degree to proper use. She is a devoted Portland Trail Blazer fan and is confident that when the zombie apocalypse happens, she will, without a doubt, survive.
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.
