The Fresh Faces of Blue Flame Thinking

We’ve recently enhanced our client services roster with some fresh faces and even fresher thinking. Meet the newest members of Team Blue:


Addie Whelan, Social Media Coordinator

Addie knows a thing or two about building a loyal following. After starting a thriving music magazine while still a student at Loyola University Chicago. She’s excited about pursuing her passion for all things social. Addie brings hands-on experience and the strategies she honed while working in the healthcare, hospitality and music industries. Whether investigating the latest Instagram algorithm, studying Facebook ads, discovering emerging LinkedIn influencers or even starting trends on Twitter, Addie is leading the pack.

Phil Bernabe, Account Manager

Phil has spent almost a decade helping the clients he’s worked for produce the best possible work, which suits our “Find Your Better” philosophy to a T! With accounts like DIRECTV, Volkswagen and Jaguar under his belt, we’re happy to have his talents focused on our client initiatives. When Phil isn’t helping guide accounts to bigger and better places, he can be found rooting for the basketball and football teams of his alma mater, Michigan State. Yes, we’ve managed to land another Spartan!


Rebecca Forrester, Account Director

Rebecca brings over eight years of guiding and building brands in the digital marketing, performance consulting and software development industries. She’s ready to focus her extensive background in both project and account management to make our clients’ accounts soar. A graduate of Central Michigan University, Rebecca makes her home in Grand Rapids where she is equally comfortable on the beach as she is on the golf course. A legendary prankster, we’re excited to see what tricks she has up her sleeve!
