Nikki Fica

Social Media Director

From her career as a sponsored MMA fighter, Nikki made the leap to a job in social media management. Then again, she’s always had the makings for a social media savant: she leveraged social media for businesses (back when “business pages” weren’t even around yet!” during the MySpace era. Now she’s the Social Media Director at Marque Media and grows the accounts of 10 different clients—with help from her team. Nothing excites her like a client’s Instagram stats growing in numbers! Next to social media, traveling inspires Nikki the most: she loves diving into different experiences and cultures as well as encountering new arts and designs.

Count on Jezreel to make things happen. As a full-time executive assistant to the director, the lady loves to multi-task. If that isn’t enough, she’s currently studying simplified accounting to take her skill sets up a notch. Despite all the workload, Jezreel clocks in as much sleep as she can, lest she get severe migraines—a major no-no!

Outside of work hours, you can find Jezreel outdoors. She loves playing badminton, immersing herself in nature, and traveling with her three kids (two, really, but she counts her bratty husband as one more!).

Lea Carreon

Before Marque Media, Lea spent most of her days juggling law school and an administrative assistant position in the local government. She quit her job to focus solely on her law school, and took on online jobs for a flow of income. There, Lea discovered a world completely different from her usual one. She found a new passion in social media marketing, online business management, team leadership, and virtual assistance for her favorite blogger of all time: The Ambitionista.

Lea is an all-around member, handling agreements, invoices, branding, newsletters, and overall internal management. On her day off, she binge watches animes, Korean movies and paralegal shows like Suits and The Good Fight. She secretly longs to partake, once again, in debate competitions—just as she used to.

Karis Renee

Marque Media helped me launch my first swimwear brand. Working with Erica, Karis, and Laila made the whole experience so much less intimidating and stressful than if I had tried to do it all myself.

Dylan Patterson

I came to Marque Media in distress after working with another company who, to say the least is incompetent. Heidi, who is a real boss, has competent employees that she overlooks as they interact with the clients. She met with me, listened carefully and was able to understand my needs, concerns, and has really turned my experience around with marketing companies - I almost have a website after 1.5 months - and one that I am proud off to share with the world. She's very real in the way she deals with clients, giving us options and is very clear an transparent about pricing upfront. You know what you are paying for, and you know what to expect from her and her employees - you can tell that there is accountability in the way they work. She's always available to her clients, and I can expect her to respond with an honest answer that will lead me in the right direction. I'm so happy I found Marque Media to help me launch my brand and company to the world - this is the beginning of a long term relationship - I feel it! If you're looking for a marketing company, message Heidi, and she will take care of you.
