A partner in the agency, Lindsey is actually Corey's boss. Just ask her. As the Director of Web Strategy, she works with prospects and clients to establish goals and the strategy to meet them. Ultimately, Lindsey makes sure everything our team does is working towards those goals.
Lindsey is a proud 90s girl whose career origin story begins at Sam Goody. Before joining the Tribute team (and after the fall of the mall music empire), she wrote for and managed a few publications, and ran her own copywriting and content marketing business.
Outside of work, Lindsey follows her favorite bands around the country, participates in a "super-cool-not-at-all-nerdy" writing group, and keeps a human child alive (he's in high school now, so she deserves all the awards). She's also a pretty big deal in the city of Meridian, Idaho, serving on multiple committees and doing all she can to make the city even better.
Jillian serves as office mom, birthday-dessert-buyer, and office historian, in addition to running all operational things. In her words, "Everything I have done has been centered around taking care of people and making sure things get done." Her commitment to taking care of everyone and everything makes Tribute employees' lives easier (and way funner).
An Idaho resident since 2002, Jillian is originally from Connecticut. Prior to joining the Tribute team more than 10 years ago, she worked as an executive assistant and owned (and sold) an Errand and Concierge business.
Outside of work, Jillian enjoys cooking, entertaining, organizing everything, making lists, and spending time with husband Will and their two super cute daughters, Lily and Emma. Though she calls herself "basic" for loving Target, Starbucks, and fall, she's anything but basic.
Don is the art guy. For our clients, Don sits in on projects from the beginning and works to visually communicate our clients and what they offer to their audience within the framework of the web. He says, "My job is to incorporate those considerations into our overall plan for our clients, and in a lot of cases, I’m actually the one doing the design work as well." He excels at finding the balance between the bang of the visuals and the practicality of budgets, goals, and timelines.
Don holds a degree in Multimedia and Web Design from the Art Institute of Seattle and has worked in web design for almost two decades. Originally from Seattle, Don appreciates having four seasons as opposed to year-round rain.
Once in a rap group called Kaysethugz, Don gave up the stage name Dcaff and literally dozens of fans to settle in Idaho with his wife and three adorable children. He still has a Kaysethugz tattoo: "It doesn't come off."
Steve holds a B.S. in IT and Software Engineering. He focuses mostly on back end development, building websites' structure and functionality so Don can make them look pretty. His expertise in Drupal and advanced site building knowledge makes him an invaluable addition to the team.
Born and raised in Boise, Steve has been married for over 20 years and is the proud father of two children, Brenden and Baylee. He loves Idaho's four seasons and Boise's proximity to the mountains — "all that is good about city life without many of the bad things that usually come along with it."
Steve is a huge sports fan, especially soccer, and he and his family have traveled all over to watch games. His bucket list includes attending a game at every MLS stadium (he's hit 9 so far).
Caty is the point of contact for all Tribute Media web development projects and web marketing clients. Her ongoing goal is to define client delight and help our clients become heros in the eyes of their customers.
Caty graduated with a degree in psychology from Florida State University and moved to Idaho five years ago. She loves Idaho's outdoors, and she met (and recently married!) the love of her life here, so it was obviously a delightful decision.
She has a strong background in creating marketing strategies, auditing websites, email marketing, social media, and building web content focused on turning leads into customers.
If you call Tribute Media or stop in our office, Madison is the friendly voice or face you'll encounter. Behind the scenes, Madison manages -- fabulously, we might add -- a full plate of administrative duties for the Tribute team, ranging from publishing content to setting up projects, and keeping our coffee pot and candy jar full. Thanks to her willingness to learn and do in every department, things are always running smoothly in the office.
Born and raised in Boise, Madison loves having four seasons (especially fall) and spending time outdoors. She and her husband have a son, who is almost four, and a dog and cat.
Currently, Madison is studying Early Childhood Education and is on track to graduate in December of 2020. She has a range of job experience in publishing, retail, and working with children. In her free time, you might catch her DIY-ing ALL the furniture or dancing like it's her job.
Emery handles the most glamorous part of website management: Search Engine Optimization. She holds an MA in Rhetoric and Composition from Boise State and has a background in content strategy and running affiliate marketing sites. She likes that neither rhetoric nor SEO has a clear-cut definition and both are always changing (she will absolutely nerd out about either topic with you at any time).
On the side, Emery is a Very Serious Writer™ and assistant editor of a literary magazine. She hopes to one day have a lot of dogs and a cabin in the mountains, as well as at least one published book.
Taylor is Tribute Media's social media specialist. After graduating with a Communication & Media Studies degree, she interned with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho and soon became their Communications manager.
Born and raised in the Treasure Valley, Taylor is proud dog parent to two rescues, Myla and Minnie. She loves Boise's access to all the outdoor activities, and she looks forward to exploring the rest of Idaho.
In addition to exploring her home state, one of Taylor's life goals is to visit as many national parks as possible—she has visited six so far. When she's not hanging out in nature or socialing the medias, you might find her indulging reality shows or re-watching Parks and Recreation.
Logan is a recent Boise State University graduate with a degree in marketing. She joined Tribute as our Inbound Marketing Coordinator after holding marketing positions with various companies in the Treasure Valley.
After growing up in Eagle, Logan now lives in Boise with her boyfriend Ben and their dog, Marshall, and cat, Miles. She loves to travel and wants to see new places, but she is content for now with all the hiking and skiing the Boise area has to offer.
In her free time, you might find Logan watching Gilmore Girls (again) or curling up with chick flicks and ice cream. Though she has never broken a bone before, she swears she's not boring.
Anthony moved to Idaho from Montana and joined Tribute Media as an intern in 2016 while he was still in college. After graduating from Southern New Hampshire University with a degree in Information Technology, he gained even more experience at Clearwater Analytics as a Site Reliability Engineer, worked on his own software development projects and collaborated on projects with Tribute Media as a contractor. Anthony is now happy to be back as a full-fledged member of the Tribute Media team, enjoying the perks of working at a lifestyle agency. After all, one of Anthony’s favorite things about living in Idaho is that “the great outdoors is never far away,” and working with at Tribute Media offers lots of opportunities to pursue passions both personal and professional.
Alyssa is Tribute's newest graphic designer. She is a senior at Meridian Technical Charter High School, and has served as an intern for Webmarkets, putting her passion for digital art to work. Last year she competed in a state t-shirt design competition, taking 1st place in the state and 7th nationally.
Born and raised in Idaho, Alyssa has seen nearly every corner of the state. She loves everything about Idaho, including the gorgeous landscapes and the balance of countryside and city life in the Treasure Valley.
When she's not working, studying, or making art, Alyssa is down to watch any Disney film, anytime.
Alicia is Tribute's Inbound Marketing Specialist focusing on Search Engine Optimization (SEO). She joined the team with extensive marketing experience in several industries. She also spent 7 years working in the movie theater industry, which brought out her love and appreciation for film.
Born in Nampa and raised in Southern California, Alicia has been back in the Boise area for 8 years. She loves the culture, the seasons, and living in a small "big" town.
Alicia has plenty of goals and interests that keep her busy. For instance, she is currently studying ASL and French, wants to learn to code, and has a bucket list item of traveling to all 50 states by the time she's 30. Surely she is enjoying Tribute's 4 day work week to enjoy traveling on the weekends.
Wally appeared at Tribute Media not long after we opened for business back in 2007. Admittedly, we weren’t sure at first if he’d make a good fit—how could he type with those fins?—but he quickly won us over with his spunky attitude and can-do spirit. He shows us everyday why the narwhal is called the “unicorn of the sea” (but don’t tell him we said so—a while back, he kept pestering Corey to give him a plaque with that inscribed on it).
Wally likes making his Tribute Media coworkers laugh. He stays active on social media: His Twitter page has over 1,000 followers. Outside of work, he enjoys deep sea diving and travelling. His favorite locations include the San Francisco bay area and the Arctic Circle (guess he doesn’t mind the cold weather).
