“Stephanie Keister and I worked together at L.L.Bean in an complementary effort to gain positive media attention for L.L.Bean Outdoor Discovery Schools. Stephanie was consistently innovative, responsive, deadline-driven and results-oriented. I was continually impressed with her ability to prioritize and take on increasing responsibility. She is highly creative, can-do, calm under fire and a pleasure to work with.”

Mary Rose MacKinnon, Public Relations Manager, L.L.Bean

“I worked with Stephanie for two years, and managed her directly for one. Stephanie was exceptionally strong in her knowledge and understanding of tourism marketing. She was well organized and able to juggle many priorities, ranging from small urgent tasks to longer term strategic issues. Her writing skills are excellent. She was professional and kept up with the many things going on in the industry. She had creative ideas for increasing participation in our programs. She would be an asset in any position that must balance customer acquisition, satisfaction and business success.”

Ramey Wight-Chipman, Strategic Project Manager, L.L.Bean

“I worked with Stephanie on several projects while she was working for L.L. Bean’s Outdoor Discovery School. She was always open to new ideas and collaborative possibilities. I learned from her own unique approach to marketing and only wish we had had more time to execute some of the concepts we intended. She is smart, savvy, creative and dedicated. I’d highly recommend her work to anyone who wanted their product or service to stand out!”

Margaret Hoffman, Development Project Officer, Maine Office of Tourism

“Stephanie is a detail-oriented self-starter who can produce spreadsheets with one hand and media releases and marketing collateral materials with the other. She is results-driven with an eye on the big picture, while never losing sight of the bottom line.”

Marianne Virgili, CEO, Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association

“I first got to know Stephanie when she become the Director of Tourism Marketing for Glenwood Springs, and have followed her career since then. Stephanie is one of those get-the-job-done people who you can count on to do whatever it is that needs doing. Whether it’s writing a press release, using a content management system to update a website, coordinating a photo shoot, managing a social media program, writing a blog or working with the media, Stephanie tackles the job head-on with an remarkable combination of marketing expertise and professionalism.”
