I would like to thank each and every person who has been part of this journey with me as I couldn’t have done it without your support. I know that I leave you in good hands with the new owner, and now publisher Angela Frizell.
With over a decade experience in marketing, Angela has worked as marketing director, communications coordinator, designer, project manager, and web developer. Her expertise is in digital marketing, but her heart has always been in print.
A journalism scholarship recipient, Angela took time off between finishing school and starting her career. She left college to join the Army Reserves, and when she returned, married her high school sweetheart and began a family. For the next several years, she focused on raising her kids. Once they were in school, she went back to college, finishing her degree in business and communications studies.
Her career followed a similar windy path, evolving as she moved through each realm of marketing but always pointing back to print. Her favorite course in college was desktop publishing and she was often told by her instructors that she had a knack for it.
Today, she helps companies strengthen and grow their brand by initiating interest both online and offline through content writing, community management, and campaign development. She lives in the Springfield, Missouri area, but has worked with companies big and small throughout the country. Angela’s professional commitment is to help businesses grow, but she’s of the Ozark Mountain Ridge Runners.
Before all else, she’s a wife, mother, neighbor, and fellow female consumer who knows how busy women’s lives can get. She understands how sometimes it’s a breath of fresh air to sit down and flip through a magazine, learning about new services and products, finding something that’s new-to-you, that you’ve always wanted to try, or something you have absolutely been looking for.
“That’s what Metro Woman has always been about,” Angela adds. “After years
of admiring the Springfield Metro Woman Resource Directory, I look forward to building on the momentum and professionalism the magazine always offered the community, and to grow the publication while continuing to provide resources that enhance women’s lives in Springfield, Branson, Nixa, Ozark, and surrounding cities.”
Angela lives with her husband, artist and illustrator, David Frizell, and her two youngest children. She enjoys spending time outdoors with her family, and especially enjoys playing with her granddaughter.
I will be assisting Angela while she learns the ins and outs of the business. I look forward to watching her energy, passion, and education take the publication to great heights.
