Alphild Rees

Alphild Rees

Content Manager

As an elder millennial, she loves the word “craft” and that’s exactly what she does at FocusWorks: helps clients craft their best voice through blogs, emails, social, and curated content. When she’s not writing, she’s editing and strategizing with Amanda. And when she’s off the clock, she’s chasing her charmingly chaotic toddler around the house, baking along with the Great British Baking Show, or hiking in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest where she’s located.

Caroline Criste

Lead Generation Specialist

Caroline Criste looks for the intersection of disparate things. As a dance artist and a media specialist, she brings a duality of creativity and analytical thinking to serve her work at FocusWorks. 

She is famous for her love of cookies and pie-charts, and she spends her free time exploring new Brooklyn neighborhoods.
