Carrie Crooks  General Manager and Editor-in-Chief

Small town roots and big city dreams led Carrie to attend The University of Texas at Austin, where she attained a degree in English and fell in love with Central Texas. After a short stint as a content marketer and then a brief run as a sole proprietor of her own business, Carrie found Junebug Weddings and has never looked back. Her love of fine art, writing, digital media, customer service and networking blend together perfectly in her role as Junebug's General Manager and Editor-in-Chief. Willing to go the extra mile for Junebug's members, Carrie is constantly working to improve member value. She is also always on the lookout for fresh, creative content for either What Junebug Loves or Photobug. Whenever she is not hard at work, Carrie enjoys biking through the Texas countryside, spending time with family and friends, playing with her dogs Dewey and Miles, and cooking with her insanely supportive other half, Phil.

Lexi Ross – Member Relations Associate

Canadian born and Texas raised, Lexi brings spunk, creativity, and innovation to her role as Member Relations Associate. Combining her love of weddings, writing, and customer service, Lexi is always hard at work creating long-lasting relationships with Junebug members and crafting quality content. With her BA in English from the University of North Texas and her background working for an interior design firm, Lexi has the experience needed to excel in her role with Junebug. When Lexi's not busy delivering value to our members, she is exploring new restaurants, scouring antique stores for new treasures, and taking her black lab, Teddi, out to the trails for walks.

Lexi Heimdal  Marketing Associate 

Constantly smiling and filling the office with joy, along with baked goods -- Lexi's passion for weddings and marketing led her to Junebug. Having just graduated from Texas State University with a degree in Public Relations, Lexi is utilizing her experience in event management, social media, and graphic design to better promote Junebug and its members in her role as Marketing Associate. Her bubbly personality, solid work ethic, and desire to learn are proving to be invaluable to the Junebug Weddings team. Lexi's perfect day would include a float on the river and a concert in the Hill Country, all documented on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, of course!

Marissa Forsyth  Member Relations Associate

Marissa's life technically began in the bayous of Southeast Texas, but she likes to think she was destined to be weird in Austin. From a very young age, the dream to attend UT was her main motivation, and performing on stage was everything else. Always having a sincere passion for anything containing the word "art", she had incredible opportunities working at Austin Women's Magazine and the Austin Film Festival while getting her degree in Theatre and Dance. Now with her biggest dream fulfilled, she feels blessed beyond words to be a part of Junebug - a magical place that combines her love of magazine journalism, creativity, fashion and collaboration. Along with these, her heart shares space with her other loves of the outdoors, being with family, yoga, and of course all things Longhorn.

Nathalie Charlton  Marketing Intern 

Nathalie is playing the role of our summer Marketing Intern, although we wish she could stay for longer! Currently studying Marketing at Texas State University where she is active in the Delta Gamma sorority, Nathalie's go-getter attitude and upbeat personality help her to promote our members and market our brand flawlessly. In her free time, Nathalie is a true Austinite, and can be found either paddleboarding on the lake or supporting the local music scene.

Olivia Tinsley Editorial Intern

As a Communications major and hopeless romantic, Olivia couldn’t be more excited about her position as the Editorial Intern for Junebug Weddings. Currently the editor of the University of Washington’s fashion club magazine, Olivia combines her love of fashion and writing with her passion for weddings to produce inspiring, quality content for the What Junebug Loves blog. When she isn’t writing or studying hard, Olivia can most likely be found running around Green Lake, singing, or enjoying time with her boyfriend, family, and best friends.
