Content Manager, Grand Rapids

Lisa Tjapkes

As Atomic's marketing manager, I work with Elaine Ezekiel to tell Atomic's story. I oversee our marketing and brand strategy, manage and create content for our website, and support our sales team with collateral.

Marketing is the perfect career for me because it combines psychology (What are people thinking?), informative creative writing (How can I reach them?), and data analysis (What's working? What's not?). I love finding patterns, bringing order out of chaos, and figuring out what makes people tick.

I earned a B.A. in English from Calvin College in 2002. Before joining AO, I spent a decade as the Marketing Coordinator for a Grand Rapids-based civil engineering firm.

When not at work, I spend my time fixing up my 90-year-old house, cooking, growing tomatoes, and reading/writing/watching stories about dragons, superheroes, time travel, and other impossible things.
