Social Media Strategist Candy DenOuden

Candy DenOuden hails from the far East River area of Avon, S.D. She graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University with a double major in English and journalism — meaning she has double the qualifications for half the salary. When not strategizing the interwebs, Candy likes reading super nerdy books, watching movies/TV shows and then quoting them profusely, hiking, befriending woodland creatures and other fuzzy animals, making dumb jokes, playing games of all kinds, hanging out with friends and spoiling her nieces, nephews and fairy goddaughters. She doesn't typically dream about cars, but thinks an ostrich-pulled wagon would be pretty legit. In her past life as a newspaper journalist, Candy’s greatest accomplishment was taking a picture of a dead raccoon with a “Get Well” balloon tied to its arm that ended up being shown on “The Late Show with David Letterman.” She also was early for something — once.

He’s a wizard at hacky sack and is a mean cook. And if that weren’t enough, he also does impressions. If he had any dream car, he’d opt for a 60s or 70s Chevy C10 truck. The best part of the job for Matt is how integral his role is for the success of the people around him. And he didn’t say this in so many words, but he also appreciates how funny his co-workers are.
