A Seacoast native, Stevens has worked for about two decades as an arts and entertainment writer and editor, first at Foster’s Daily Democrat in Dover and then at Seacoast Media Group in Portsmouth. She has covered everything from the late singer/songwriter Bill Morrissey to "Man v. Food Nation" host Adam Richman eating dogs at Gilley’s PM Lunch. She was also heavily involved in social media for Spotlight magazine and seacoastonline.com, overseeing contests and quips galore.
“The Boldwerks team is first rate and I’m happy to be at such a progressive company,” says Stevens. “Its biannual Goodwerks programs for nonprofits such as Seacoast Local and the Portsmouth Symphony Orchestra especially strikes a positive chord. I also can’t wait to interact with clients through their social media and public relations channels.” Stevens also enjoys the office atmosphere that includes vintage vinyl and the occasional visit from Papi, the office (canine) mascot.
At Boldwerks, Stevens will be be immersed in all social media platforms, public relations and new media initiatives, as well as project management for the company.
“I’m thrilled to welcome J.L. Stevens to the Boldwerks crew,” said Content Director Chris Hislop. “She brings a wealth of viably aggressive advancement in the world of new media, and is a thought leader when it comes to cross-platform social media conversation and promotion. She’s turning a new page in Boldwerks' story, and I’m excited to see how it unfolds. She opens the door to a bold new world of exciting new media strategy for the company, and clients alike.”
