A seasoned marketing professional, Chasidy has worked with companies such as The North Face, Honest Tea, Coca-Cola, GEICO, Nestle, Enjoy Life Foods and the NBA in all the various slices of integrated marketing programs.
As a graduate of the University of Montevallo with a BA in Communication Studies, Chasidy’s liberal arts education helped shape her grounded and focused approach, alongside her passion for traveling, music and art. After a four-year stint at a Word Of Mouth (WOM) marketing company in Chicago working with start-ups and entrepreneurs, she set out to Los Angeles where she began to hone her skills in larger, Fortune 500 companies. Utilizing that experience, she was able to incorporate that grassroots, organic engagement within broader corporate structures.
A native of Muscle Shoals, Alabama, returning to the Southeast and becoming acquainted with the blossoming foodie culture in Atlanta has been a welcome homecoming. Chasidy has enjoyed setting up roots in the local community with her husband and two beautiful girls. She is also one of the founders of Banjo Cold Brew Coffee, which she grew from concept to cup. What started as a single farmers market stand on the east side of Atlanta, has now evolved into a brick and mortar coffee shop and is being sold in retail chains throughout the southeast, such as Whole Foods, Kroger and Central Market.
