KayleighAPhoto

We’re proud to present YEP’s current Chair, Kayleigh Apicerno:
Employer: R.D. Scinto, Cloud Media Marketing
Title: Receptionist/ Marketing Coordinator at R.D. Scinto. Owner of Cloud Media Marketing

YEP: Tell us a bit about what you do?

KA: I recently joined the team at R.D. Scinto. I am the Receptionist and Marketing Coordinator, responsible for the marketing communications and social media. After 5, I switch hats and work on my business, Cloud Media Marketing, training individuals and small business owners social media.

YEP: Tell us a bit about yourself?

KA: This is always the most difficult question! When I am not working, I spend my time learning. I really believe that it is important to learn something new every day. With the Internet at our fingertips, there are no excuses. Currently, my favorite pastimes include Coursera and Duolingo. I’m learning Italian a little each day!

YEP: What is your role with YEP?

KA: I am the current Chair of YEP.

YEP: What is it about YEP that you like?

KA: Getting to know other young professionals in the area. I have made so many friends and learned so much about the community thanks to this organization. Being a part of this group and seeing what my fellow peers are able to do have inspired me in many ways. I almost certainly would not have taken the leap and actually opened my own business. I also find it very fulfilling to give my time to the various causes in the area.

YEP: Future aspirations?

KA: As I mentioned, I just recently started my new position and my business, so I am working on figuring everything out. And of course, I am working very hard to make YEP a well-known and respected organization here in the Valley.

YEP: Any fun facts or most interesting thing that’s ever happened to you?

KA: Let’s see. This past March, I went on a trip to St. Lucia in the Caribbean. It was my first time out of the country besides a brief visit to Canada when I was 9. It was a gorgeous island. I did not use my phone or any technology the whole time I was away (besides taking photos)! It was tough, especially since my business is social media, but somehow I made it through!

Letter To Members From Incoming Chair, Kayleigh Apicerno

me photo YEPHello All!

For those of you who do not know me, my name is Kayleigh Apicerno, and I will be your YEP Chair for 2015.

Over the past 3 years, I have been the Secretary and Marketing Committee Chair along with being the Co-Chair of the sub-committee for Pinktoberfest in 2013 and the Chair of this committee in 2014.

I have many ideas on how to grow and develop YEP during 2015 and cannot wait to get started. I am confident that with a laser focus on our 3 main pillars, ConnectDevelop, and Support, we will be able to build relationships, develop new skills, and support our community.
