Holly Duvall
Director of Marketing and Production

My philosophy:
Always respect others and their differences; you never know when you may have to take a walk in their shoes. Find value in honesty, but remember to be tactful, for tact is being truthful without making an enemy, and having enemies is much more difficult than having friends.

Why I love what I do:
I work for and with an amazing group of people, each with his or her own unique personality, passions and idiosyncrasies – but all with the same goal in mind when it comes to the work we do. We work together day in and day out, striving to make Inspire Coastal Bend magazine the best publication in the Coastal Bend. We all take pride in the product we produce and value the partnerships and relationships we’ve been afforded through the publication. We take pride in the community we live in and work for. I truly feel blessed to be a part of our team, and that our publisher has entrusted me to be an intricate part of our success. My boss truly respects me as an individual and values the work I do. This makes my job, even when challenging, easy. The excitement I feel when we wrap up production every issue is like Christmas morning – it’s hard to beat that!

Words to live by:
Live in such a way that if someone spoke badly of you, no one would believe it.

Brittanie Robertson
Account Executive

My philosophy:
Don’t let your weaknesses defeat you. Keep going.

Why I love what I do:
It’s this simple: the stories. When you walk into an establishment, be it a doctor’s office, a restaurant or a boutique, the tale behind the business is what intrigues me. I want to hear it. I want to know both it and the individual. I’ve heard some of the most inspiring (not to sound cliché) stories of the most driven and passionate individuals in our community. Every day I get to talk to people who had a vision and ran with it, some against all odds. These make the coolest stories, and I share them with my own children. Who wouldn’t love going to work when every day is filled with so much victory?

Words to live by:
If you never ask, the answer is always no.

Morgan Bartel
Account Executive and Social Media Coordinator

My philosophy:
Let your faith penetrate every aspect of your life. Allow God to take center stage in your relationships, your career and your hobbies, and in every itty-bitty factor of your day-to-day. It’s only when we realize that this life we are living is much bigger than us that we can begin impacting the world in such a way that is beyond our comprehension. Knowing you aren’t the author of your life is an empowering gift and an immense blessing.

Why I love what I do:
It sounds so cliché to say my job doesn’t feel like work, but it honestly feels like hanging out with friends every single day. I know each day that I will have sore sides from laughing so hard. I know each day that I will feel accomplished. I know that each day I will be inspired to reach above and beyond what I did yesterday. It’s an honor to work alongside such a talented team. What makes it even more amazing is that I am able to see how strong our community can be when everybody is working together.
