Haaaave you met Hanna? If you haven’t, you have likely heard from her in an email or worked with her indirectly on a project. Dubbed the “Jane of all trades” of the team, Hanna supports the Big Red team daily with client projects and events, while managing her own group of clients. Whether she is building a website or a giant spin-the-wheel for an event, Hanna’s marketing expertise, relaxed can-do attitude, and handiness allow her to tackle any projects thrown at her with confidence.
Born and raised on the Central Coast, Hanna joined Big Red Marketing as an intern in 2015. After graduating with a B.S. in Agricultural Communications from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo in 2016, Hanna came on full-time as an Account Coordinator. She uses her education and experiences to support the many family-owned and nonprofit clients of Big Red Marketing and to coordinate its current Internship program.
Outside of work, Hanna stays true to her “Jane of all trades” title. When she’s not in her office chair, you will likely find Hanna traveling, snowboarding, scuba diving, or exploring the Central Coast trails with her horse and dog.

Account Coordinator/ New Kid on the Block
Sydney is the newest addition to the Big Red team, joining us at the start of 2022. You will see Sydney supporting client events and in the office collaborating with the rest of the team.
Sydney spent four years at Colorado State University earning her B.S. in Agriculture Business before returning home to the Central Coast and joining our team to share her exceptional perspective. Her unique abilities excel at tackling new and unusual tasks, and never fearing a new project. This is just the start of her Big Red journey, and we look forward to all the great things to come.
When away from the office you will most likely find Sydney spending time with her dogs, Bailey, and Huey, or on some random adventures with her horse Charlie. "Sitting still" is not really in Sydney's vocabulary and seldomly happens, fitting in perfectly with our on-the-go Big Red team.
