Lizzy Martin

What is your current role at Brighton?

Online Marketing Specialist

What does this role entail?

I work with the online marketing team on day-to-day projects managing our PPC (pay-per-click) and SEM (Search Engine Marketing) campaigns for various clients. Along with this role, I also have the pleasure of managing Brighton’s company blog and working with the social media accounts.

Favorite thing about working at Brighton?

The people. From my first day as an intern, I have always felt welcome here. Working with great people really makes your job that much better. Oh, and of course the decadent buffalo chicken dip for STL Cardinal day games!

Can you share a “fun fact” about yourself?

I was a dancer for 15 years and was a member of the SLU (Saint Louis University) Dance Team for one year. That career has ended, however; I have fallen in love with yoga!

Anything else you would like to add?

I recently moved to St. Louis’s Central West End into a house with six of my friends from SLU.


Courtney Schmiemeier

What is your current role at Brighton?

Assistant Account Executive

Before Brighton, what did you do?

Before Brighton, I was a full-time student studying English at Mizzou (University of Missouri). I was also an active member of Kappa Kappa Gamma, Theta Chapter.

Favorite thing about working at Brighton?

My favorite thing about working at Brighton is the dedication the agency has as a whole in producing the best work they can. Whether it’s a new package layout or a simple PowerPoint presentation, Brighton employees take their work seriously and that shows great character and dedication in the company as a whole.

Can you share a “fun fact” about yourself?

I love exercising, mostly running, and doing anything outdoors. I am also a serious candy addict. I love anything and everything that has sugar, and can ALWAYS find room for dessert.
