Bethany Bell

Bethany currently serves as the events manager for Downtown Springfield Association, which hosts the following events: Artsfest, Taste of SoMo, Cider Days and the Christmas Parade. When she's not organizing a community event, she is working towards her M.A. in communication at Drury University. 

Before entering the nonprofit world, Bethany spent four years at the Marlin Network, a foodservice advertising agency. In that role, she led the PR and social media strategies for national brands such as DaVinci Gourmet, Oregon Chai, Mission Foods and McCain. A foodie at heart, Bell also has deep roots in the specialty coffee industry, working a decade as a barista. 

Her hospitality background overflows to her approach to social media: fiercely in favor of listening and creating an incredible customer service experience online. Bethany is happiest in a dress, listening to rap, walking her pup or exploring a new coffee shop. Connect with Bethany at bethany@klatchcreative.com.

Tessa Cooper

Tessa is a freelance writer and photographer. Prior, she worked on the communication team at Ozarks Food Harvest, the Feeding America food bank for southwest Missouri that serves 270 hunger-relief organizations. Working in the nonprofit industry has allowed her to hone her creative talents through a variety of communication channels including email marketing, social media, event planning and content creation.

She earned a B.S. in public relations and minor in design at Missouri State University. Tessa loves entertaining the eye and mind through creating engaging content for businesses by channeling their unique voice and overall personality.

Her belief is that what an organization communicates visually is just as powerful as the written word, which is why she enjoys mixing the two mediums through managing social media accounts. Tessa is a Parisian at heart (but she is really from the midwest) and likes the finer things in life like flowers and cappuccinos. Reach her at tessa@klatchcreative.com.
