A-Train Marketing Communications, Inc. recently added another team member to its ranks. With a growing workload and a recent staff departure, A-Train was in need of another full-time employee to help manage accounts and create exceptional content. The search was short and easy. Kerry Wicks had already been writing copy and creating content for A-Train on a part-time basis, and her work had impressed the whole team.
Kerry is originally from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. She moved to Fort Collins in the early 90’s to attend school at CSU. She graduated from CSU with a BA in English and a Master of Science in Student Affairs and Higher Education. Her writing skills have not gone unnoticed since arriving at A-Train, she has already written A-Train blogs and copy for multiple clients. So it should come as no surprise that one of her favorite hobbies is writing – or as she calls it – “word chasing and capturing”.
Along with being a fantastic writer, Kerry has also always had a set of keen marketing and sales skills. These skills date back to when she was eight years old and went door-to-door selling the Brushette II toothbrush system. She also applied those skills while working at the Junior League of Fort Collins where she served as the VP of Communication, Marketing Chair, and President. Now working at A-Train, she aims to use her writing and communication skills to thrive as a copywriter and account manager. The human impact of writing is what drives Kerry, and she seeks that same positive human impact in the workplace through team camaraderie and a progressive workplace culture. “The A-Train team is comprised of amazingly talented individuals. The company really has a grasp on effective marketing and helping companies tell their stories well,” says Kerry. In addition to her impressive set of tangible skills, she hopes to bring a new perspective, a desire to learn, and her creative spirit to the A-Train team.
Kerry’s life mantra is: “Happiness is not a destination,” meaning you can’t chase happiness, YOU have to create it. Something that makes Kerry happy is going on adventures with her kids and having a blast with the two of them. She also has a propensity to collect leaf dishes and cutting boards… just because she can. She enjoys being around the people she loves and doing whatever the heart desires – whether it’s dancing, sitting on the patio, or getting sushi. It’s not hard to see why the team at A-Train has already grown quite fond of Kerry as a co-worker and a friend.
