The Best of Our Ele-pprentices.
You may know by now that every four months, a group of dedicated and talented apprentices spend hours and hours (and hours) with us, learning how to edit, use social media, as well as strengthen their writing skills—and well, help keep elephant up and running.
We’re always a little in love with them—like us, they spend their Saturday nights in front of a screen pouring their heart and soul into words that will (hopefully) be of benefit.
We say this every chance we get: we couldn’t do what we do without them.
So, to each of you: Jane Henderling, Kerrie Shebiel, Melissa Petty, Michelle Margaret, Andrea Charpentier, Bronwyn Petry, J. Daniel Garcia, Jamie Khoo, Jes Wright, Karissa Ostheimer, Kathryn Ashworth, Laura Ashworth, Paige Vignola, Sanja Cloete-Jones and Zenna James…thank you from the bottom of our elephant hearts for sticking with us.
