Employee Spotlight: Lillie Vincent
By: Hayden Jarman
Born and raised in Cosby, Missouri – a rural farm town with a population of 124 – Lillie Vincent found her way to BlueTone Media as a Content Creator in 2021 after moving to Wilmington so her husband, Matthew, could begin his coastal engineering graduate studies at the University of North Carolina - Wilmington. Now, Lillie, Matthew, and their dog Merah have made Wilmington their home.
Lillie says that when she first interviewed at BlueTone, she knew right then and there that this was the team for her. Turns out, she was right! Her favorite parts about working at BlueTone are the people she gets to work beside every day to help meet client goals and visions. The down-to-earth work experience and culture that BlueTone has instilled in its employees is evident in Lillie’s everyday duties.
Lillie is a creative at heart, having a passion for all things writing and art. In her current position, she produces a wide variety of content, from blog posts to videos to website wireframes and more. Lillie says the Content Creator position fit her skill set perfectly, as she studied at the renowned University of Missouri Journalism school. One of her favorite parts about her position? “There’s never a dull moment! I love it!”

Besides working as a content creator, she spent time as a state government reporter, infographic designer, news copy editor, teaching assistant, and collegiate writing tutor. She also has basic experience with data analytics and visualization, backend web design and coding, GIS and has worked to build strong videography and photography skills over the years.
