Although she is a child of the South, raised in Tennessee with a passion for sweet tea and people who say 'y'all', she also has more than a decade of experience in Los Angeles in the film and television industry, and in Phoenix as a content marketing strategist, editor, and journalist. A passionate storyteller, Laura founded The Storyteller Agency to help businesses rethink marketing, to consider their message an ongoing narrative - a conversation with their audience.
Laura is frequently asked to speak at conferences, meetings and workshops about the value of content marketing for business. She is also the Co-Founder of SheWolf Collaborative, a collective that promotes and inspires creative, entrepreneurial women. You can read more about her professional experience, if you like.
After teaching a workshop to Lucy Buffett's Lulu's team, Laura was tapped to bring her creativity and business sense to Lucy Buffett Enterprises, where she now serves as Director of Operations. Laura lives in Magnolia Springs, Alabama with her husband, James, and their four (yes, four!) dogs: Dexter, Barney, Curdog and Tate. She enjoys stand up comedy and theatre, yoga, old-fashioned correspondence, travels with friends, classic rock music, trying new recipes using whatever happens to be growing in the garden, playing the piano and ukulele, and laughing as much as possible everyday. In fact, she borrows her mantra from the beloved e.e.cummings: "The most wasted of all days is one without laughter."
Kathryn Jones, Chief Operations Officer
Although she is a seasoned local of the Santa Rosa Beach community, a part of her heart and soul will always reside in a small town known as Rainbow City, AL, where she grew up. Kathryn spent her childhood on a farm where her parents raised goats and horses and a host of family pets. She spent her adolescence sitting on tailgates around bonfires with friends, and her young adulthood attending Auburn University – a place that she still calls home.
Kathryn has spent many years in the hospitality industry – from being humbled in caring for the elderly, to welcoming newborn babies into the world, and all the way to getting her hands dirty in the operating room as a surgical assistant – however, she has always harbored a desire to follow her more creative passions, such as writing, photography and culinary arts. After accepting a rather serendipitous freelance writing opportunity with The Storyteller Agency, Kathryn, for the first time, felt a passion become a reality. She is now implementing her passion and creativity as the Creative Assistant at The Storyteller Agency.
Kathryn lives in Santa Rosa Beach with her rescue dog, Luna Girl, and enjoys living just a few miles down the road from her sister, brother in law and 3 nieces – to whom she is known as ‘Kit Kat.’ Her happiest days are spent with all of the loves of her life – her family (Luna Girl included), her cherished friends, and music – relishing the simple life. Kathryn borrows her mantra from John McLaughlin, who said, "Only in spontaneity can we be who we truly are."
Amy Delcambre, Managing Editor
It was by happy accident that Mobile, Alabama is the only place Amy has ever called home because Amy always meant to move to satisfy her wanderlust; however, life had other plans, so her Azalea City roots grew ever deeper. Instead of chartering new geographical terrain, Amy braved giving her lifelong love of writing a shot by pursuing her MA in Creative Writing at the University of South Alabama.
After graduate school, Amy started grant writing and editing for USA’s Research Department full-time, which she found meaningful and challenging yet creatively uninspiring. In 2013, with the support of The Storyteller Agency’s Chief, Laura Holloway, Amy began working as a freelance content and travel writer. In 2015, Amy actualized another dream: full-time freelance writing and editing. In addition to content and travel writing and editing, Amy occasionally edits novels and academic journal articles. Amy also teaches technical writing, creative writing, literature, and composition courses for the University of Phoenix online and for the University of South Alabama.
Amy’s southern saga plays out with her loving husband, Sean, and their three precious children: Lillianne Myra, Jude David (born sleeping), and Eilie Colette. Amy remembers Jude and shares reflections inspired by her son on his webpage, Letters to Jude.com. Amy finds the greatest joy in being outdoors running, gardening, swimming, and playing on the playground with her girls. She also finds pleasure in cooking and eating, reading, and traveling. Amy chooses love and happiness everyday; she believes our life narratives are a combination of perception and reality, which is why one of her favorite quotes is: “Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?” –Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
