Ilena Ryan is a Senior Account Executive for the Text100 Boston office, and has worked with clients such as IBM, MathWorks, and Schneider Electric. A Long Island, New York, transplant, Ilena spends her time ruthlessly – and sometimes, obnoxiously – rooting for her NY teams (Mets and Jets, much to her coworkers’ dismay), putting serious mileage on her running sneakers, and eating her way through Boston. She also can be found tweeting about very important, awesome things at @ilenabeth.
Nicole LeBlanc is an Account Manager at Text100 and supports technology, services and energy management clients. She is a Food Network Star wannabe, with Martha Stewart like tendencies. She believes one can never have too many knick-knacks, a killer pair of heels can make a paper bag look fabulous and a good glass of wine can bring out the best in just about anything. Outside of 31 Milk Street, you can usually find her making a mess in her kitchen, exploring Boston restaurants, running to compensate for all the eating, on the beach with a good book May – September, hibernating, pouting and damning New England winters the rest of the year. Follow her on Twitter @nicolejleblanc.
Kate Foss is a Senior Account Executive at Text100 and joined in April of 2013. Kate is the Digital Lead for the office and is currently working on programs for Schneider Electric and Cognizant. She is originally from Maine and can eat her weight in lobster (probably). Outside of the Milk Street office, you can find Kate trying new restaurants, photo stalking French Bulldogs, heckling at Boston sporting events (Go Sox!) and making every effort to go to the beach. She can be followed @KateMFoss.
Kate Mather is an Account Executive at Text100 Boston and has been with the company just over two years. Originally from Connecticut, Kate shipped it up to Boston to complete her master’s degree at BU after graduating from UCONN in 2008, and has since experienced the city at its best. She loves the color pink, hates scary movies, and has an absurdly ridiculous memory when it comes to song lyrics and TV jingles (don’t judge). Having never met anyone famous (oh, except that one time she drove designer Cynthia Rowley to the Liberty Hotel…and got lost), she hopes that one day winning the jackpot on Wheel of Fortune will make her an insta-celeb. Kate works on the IBM and Schneider Electric accounts and can be followed at @_KatieBug.
Ken Peters is a Senior Vice President at Text100, leading programs for world-class clients such as Schneider Electric, Gartner and Cognizant. His focus is on communications strategy, messaging, digital media and media training for his clients. His passions naturally include energy management, technology consulting and technology services, but also Syracuse Basketball, visits to Nantucket and the two cutest little boys in the world. Some of Ken’s finest work came earlier this year when he took a two-month sabbatical to take care of his newborn son, who at six months old is now able to craft a messaging architecture.

Her heart belongs to her precocious and comedic two year old son Jake and husband who keep her grounded and laughing. Follow Lisa on twitter @lisalovesjakey.

A graduate of Westfield State University class of 2011, Lisa works with clients such as Schneider Electric and IBM and is loving her time at Text100, learning and perfecting her skills in technology Public Relations. Outside of work, Lisa spends her time watching trashy reality television and has adopted the nickname “The Situation” from the Boston Office. She is an animal fanatic and loves all kinds of music (or anything that will drown out people on the T). She can be found tweeting about her interests at @LisaSorrentino

Michele Moore is a 30-something PR Account Manager in Boston. A Texan by birth, she is navigating her so-called-life living among (Damn) Yankees. She gets offended when people mistake her for a certain documentary film maker whose name (and likeness) are nothing like hers. Michele loves the following: her two cats, Maxwell and Maggie, The Bar Method, running, rap music, punk rock, cupcakes, college football, designer clothes and shoes (though not necessarily in that order.) When she’s not navigating the waters of public relations, she’s an active member of the Boston Fashion Blogger network and loves indulging her personal style blog, Michele Muses.
Rachel Round is an Account Manager at Text100. She will not tell you her age because she plans to start lying about it down the road. A native Rhode Islander, Rachel is happy to be back on American soil after 4 years braving Montreal winters. When it comes to PR, she’s all tech all the time – from MathWorks to IBM. Outside of the office, you can find her curled up with a good book, browsing museum exhibits, or scheming to become a cast member of “The Real Housewives.” Follow her on Twitter @rachelevelyn.
Sean Audet is Text100 Boston’s Managing Consultant – which is apparently a British term loosely translated to mean “guy who runs the place.” You can read some of Sean’s other musings on PR life over at Text100’s more serious-mind HyperText blog, where the editing team still hasn’t disabled his password despite post like how mustaches relate to PR. He’s been with Text100 since 2003 and was awarded his three-month sabbatical some time ago. In his spare time, he enjoys craft beer, 80’s hairbands and lobbying the Text100 HR department to permit employees to take a second sabbatical.
Stephanie Kanaan is an Account Executive at Text100. She hails from the great state of Connecticut (Go Huskies!) and fully embraces the Prep lifestyle – pearls and cardigans are her M.O. Stephanie has been with Text 100 for over three years and works on the IBM and Syncsort accounts. When she’s not being a media rock star, Stephanie spends her free time in the kitchen baking cakes, cookies and cupcakes from scratch and immersing herself in a good book or craft project. Fun fact: Stephanie used to be a ballroom dancer on the competitive collegiate circuit and placed first in International Jive at a UConn ballroom competition. Follow Stephanie on Twitter @StephKanaan.
Stephanie Liu is an Intern at Text100 Boston and a newcomer to the PR field. Originally from Lexington, MA, Steph studied International Affairs at Northeastern University.

She can be found on Twitter, usually panicking about Arsenal, at @szliu.
Virginia Romero is an Account Executive at Text100. Born and raised in Madrid, Spain, Virginia came to the US to get her college education and played tennis for NC State, Go Pack! Transferred from Text100 Madrid, Virginia is very excited to be back in the US and be able to eat bagels and cupcakes every week…heaven! She’s also really excited to be working with such an amazing group of people and the fact that she made it through her first winter in Boston! She’s trying to get used to the wild Turkeys chasing her (who knew, in Madrid the wildest thing that chased her was a pigeon!) but she reports that having a dog helps in dissipating them, pffff. Virginia loves to dance (no, we don’t dance salsa or merengue in Spain…, says Virginia), play tennis, spend time with her doggie Bongo, eat, eat and eat some more.
