West Michigan Tourist Association (WMTA) is excited to welcome their new Marketing Manager, Kaylie Pomper, to the team.  Kaylie grew up in Kalamazoo, MI and went on to further her education at Michigan State University, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Advertising and Graphic Design in the Spring of 2020. Kaylie is joining the WMTA team after two years in the Property Management field as a Leasing and Marketing Team Lead. She has previously worked with the student demographic in event planning, social media, and sales. Kaylie is excited to be on the WMTA team to be able to solely focus on marketing efforts for their partners and area organizations to truly show what West Michigan has to offer.  Kaylie is thrilled about being able to help support organizations, businesses, and events from across the West Michigan area. “One of my favorite things about Michigan is that there is something for everyone. Whether you prefer the quiet of a beach town, the thrills of a big city, or maybe a little bit of both. You are always a quick drive away. Plus you never know what you might find, because there is always something new and exciting to experience!” Kaylie shared about her fondness of the West Michigan region. Kaylie says her favorite season to experience in West Michigan is fall. “ There is something about seeing the leaves change to vibrant colors and smelling the crisp air that makes me feel comforted. My ideal fall day would be a scenic drive through all the changing trees with a Pumpkin Spice Latte and apple cinnamon donut in my hand haha.” she shared. Kaylie will be working with press releases, trade shows, social media, newsletter creation, and editorial writing. For any questions or information regarding the West Michigan Tourist Association, she can be contacted at Kaylie@WMTA.org or (616) 245-2217 ext 107.
