Meet Rhonda Funk, Founder of Bring It On! Communications
You’ll be pleasantly surprised to know she is a lot like you! She has written three children’s books in her new series Pookster and Bubs™ (Fish Pond Kids, 2010 & 2011) and has two other non-fiction books in the works. Rhonda is also a singer/songwriter and has traveled the United States sharing her testimony and music, much like you do, or are about to do with your book.
Some experience highlights are:
-Working for and traveling with Best Selling Author and Speaker Sheri Rose Shepherd (Love Letters From the King, Prayers to the King, His Little Princess, and His Mighty Warrior, just to name a few)
-Marketing Executive for KMCQ Radio designing marketing plans and ad campaigns, creative talk points and publicity. Also she was a Regional News Reporter and occasional on-air personality conducting interviews and generating lively, up to date stories.
-Rhonda Funk Music Ministries where she has written and produced three independent Christian albums, (and according to Drew of the Drew Marshall Show, Canada’s most listened to spiritual talk back radio, she’s sort of a Keith Green and a rare industry gem, you can decide for yourself). www.rhondafunk.com
Fun Facts: Rhonda has been an extra in three episodes of the TV series Leverage on TNT (Timothy Hutton) Season 2 The Fairy God Parents, The Bottle Job, and Season 3 The Reunion Job, and can even be seen-well at least the side of her head-in the blockbuster movie Extraordinary Measures (Harrison Ford, Brendon Fraser). Really! When Brendon runs in the hospital door near the beginning of the movie, she is the only head you see…but don’t blink or you’ll miss it!
Meet Shelby Stafford, Media Relations
Shelby is new to Bring It On! Communications. Her artistic talent, graphic design abilities, and creative thought processes make her a perfect fit for the team. Over the past few years she has freelanced for customers on Etsy.com designing banners, logos, and business cards, as well as created custom invitations and other promotional materials.
With her savvy social media skills and ability to think fast on her feet, Shelby conducts research, reaches out to audiences that fit the client’s needs, and builds a social network of book reviews, blogs, and media.
Fun Facts: Shelby just had her first son Ayden in the summer of 2012. During her pregnancy she couldn’t sit still-so she took it upon herself to design a children’s product line called Baby Gulos. Making her debut on Etsy.com with her contemporary baby shoes and miscellaneous sewn items, Shelby built relationships with retailers willing to carry her line. Still working on the idea of moving forward, as well as juggling ‘mommyhood,’ Shelby is walking through each door as it opens.
As a side note: Shelby is Rhonda’s oldest….but don’t tell. Because if you did then all her clients would know that that makes her a Grandma!
