Jamie Martin

Jamie Martin

Admin Assistant Wizard & Social Media Reporter
Jamie, who grew up in Kitchener, Ontario and completed her degree in Nutrition at the University of Guelph, began with Carmella as an Intern from the Bow Valley College. The relationship was a great fit and she quickly became a full member of the CarmellaCrew. Her role as the “catcher of all things”, as Stephanie would say, is very diverse and makes for exciting days. She has a strong work ethic and an eager drive to learn the world of social media and marketing. She enjoys hiking, biking, snowboarding, paddle boarding, and traveling.

Stephanie is amazing to work with. She puts 110% into everything she does and her energy, dedication, and passion elevate the people around her.

It was really fun getting to know the team during the project. They were all helpful in answering my questions and made me feel at ease. The design ended up being twice as good as I could've envisioned!

Jeff Gemmell

I'm wondering why I never contacted these guys sooner! Seriously, they all have commendable talent in their respective fields and knocked my concept out of the ballpark. Thanks for an amazing experience!
