Meet the Team: Lindsay Lanahan

Lindsay lanahan

Lindsay Lanahan is an empathetic, intuitive, and creative problem solver with a heart for helping others. Combining these natural strengths with her diverse experience working in the financial, entertainment, and nonprofit industries makes her an ideal Client Relations Specialist for Green Apple Strategy. In her role, Lindsay helps execute effective marketing initiatives for clients across various industries. She strategically and consistently helps our clients meet their marketing goals.

“I love learning about the psychology of marketing and the user experience,” explains Lindsay. “I also love the process of identifying a problem or opportunity, creating an approach, implementing it, analyzing what worked and what didn’t, and adjusting. It’s exciting, and I love that we’re able to adapt to find a solution that truly makes a difference!”

An Enneagram 4 who grew up in the Midwest, Lindsay has expressed her creative, empathetic, hardworking, and diligent spirit throughout her career. After graduating from college, she spent two years working in development for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in Nashville. From there, she went on to work at Creative Artists Agency, managing tour logistics and finances for world-renowned pop and country music artists. She later combined her nonprofit experience and love of the arts to serve as the Development Manager for OZ Arts, a non-profit contemporary arts center. 

After learning about Green Apple from a friend, Lindsay knew it would be the perfect opportunity to serve clients in a way that aligns with her natural skill set.

“I was immediately drawn to Green Apple when I recognized how they took the time to understand each employee and client—whether it was through diving into the Enneagram or taking the Culture Index Survey to learn about each person’s natural behaviors. When I met Sam and the rest of the team during the interview process, I knew I was in the right place.”

Personally, Lindsay loves spending time with family and exploring Nashville with her husband Patrick and her son Keane. On any given weekend, they can be found enjoying one of their favorite restaurants, seeing movies at the Belcourt, or taking a day trip to attend a music festival. Lindsay’s bright and adventurous spirit resonates with everyone who knows her.

Meet The Team: Allison Gordon

With a passion for people and an interest in marketing, Allison Gordon is the perfect addition to our Green Apple team. In her role as an assistant client relations specialist, Allison supports the needs of our clients by managing many of the day-to-day responsibilities of implementing their marketing strategy. As a 6 on the Enneagram, Allison leverages her innate skills to complete tasks and meet all client requests. Her positive personality and her desire to overcome any obstacle make her an incredible asset at Green Apple.  Allison joined the team in 2022 while pursuing her MS in Marketing from the University of Alabama. After multiple years in the hospitality industry, Allison recognized the impact marketing could make and decided to pursue further education. She found Green Apple through a family friend and quickly realized this was the perfect place to add real-world experience to what she was learning in school. “I love that marketing is universal,” Allison explained when asked about what sparked her interest in the field. “No matter what industry you’re in or what type of message you’re trying to convey, you’re going to need marketing. It provides an opportunity for companies to get creative and be strategic in how they introduce and express themselves to the world in order to grow their business.” As a native of Franklin, TN, Allison enjoys spending time with my friends and family during her free time. Whether she’s trying new restaurants, exploring Nashville, going on walks, attending Titans games, or eating Jeni’s ice cream, Allison is up for just about anything as long as she has good company!

Meet the Team: Kayla Reyes

Kayla reyes

After reading the job description and noticing Green Apple’s client-centered approach, Kayla Reyes immediately knew that the Assistant Client Relations Specialist role at Green Apple was a perfect match (while discovering
our greeters didn’t hurt either!). As an Enneagram One, she thrives in a structured and organized environment, and since the position called for this type of work style, joining the Green Apple team was a clear choice. Working closely with Olivia Cooper, Kayla will serve our clients by implementing strategic visions and capitalizing on new opportunities.

While Kayla was born in Kansas City, Missouri, she moved to South Florida at a young age and was homeschooled until her sophomore year of high school, when she began her associate’s degree journey (yes, while in high school!). She earned a bachelor’s degree in 2018 with a business management major and an entrepreneurship minor. She explains, “At such a young age, 16 years old, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to major in yet, but my college guidance counselor suggested business, and I’ve been loving it since.” She especially enjoys being an expert in marketing and entrepreneurship.

After graduating, Kayla married and relocated to Cookeville, Tennessee, where she learned the ins and outs of content writing and social media management. Two years later, she and her husband moved to Nashville, where she was hungry for more opportunities to grow her knowledge and skill set, leading her to Green Apple! Kayla says she’s looking forward to bringing a positive attitude to our team, as well as “intense organization and attention to detail.” 

Kayla loves to spend time with her high school friend-turned-husband and their two sweet Golden Retriever-Labs, Comet and Harvey. Around Nashville, Kayla enjoys working out at HOTBOX, browsing the best shops, and eating Baja Burrito tacos. She loves quality time with her friends and family, reading, audiobooks, and video games. Another true passion of Kayla’s is traveling—she has visited four countries and half of the States, and she hopes to plan another international adventure soon. We are excited to welcome Kayla to the Green Apple team and know that her ambition, strategy, and principles will help deliver quality results to our clients. 

Meet Our Orchard Members: Meghan Clark

Meghan Clark
The Orchard at Green Apple is full of talented professionals who are passionate about what they do and excited to share that passion with our clients. Meghan Clark is no exception. We truly value Meghan’s contribution to our team and are excited to share a bit of her story with you.

Meghan’s Role as an Orchard Member

As a content specialist, Meghan supports our core content marketing team to create blog articles for a variety of industries and subjects. Her workday typically includes researching new topics, drafting content, and editing before her writing makes its way to the client. She is extremely focused on quality content and SEO keyword research while always keeping our clients’ unique voices and tones in mind. 

Meghan’s Background and How She Came to Green Apple

Meghan began her career as an educator at an independent day school and spent much of her time with creative, brilliant 13-year-olds. After seven amazing years, she took a leap of faith and joined a small startup marketing company. The company ultimately went under, and she decided to use that opportunity to establish herself as a freelancer. A friend told her that Green Apple was looking for writers in 2019, and she’s worked with us ever since! “I grew up as the daughter of a successful entrepreneur, and I saw much of the same spirit, drive, and vision in Samantha Pyle. As a contractor, I appreciated the way she streamlined project management and billing. Even though I wasn’t part of the in-office team, I felt my work was valued,” Meghan says.  She loves working with Green Apple and had such great things to say about our team. “My editor, Content Marketing Director Adam York, is truly one of the kindest people I’ve ever met. He pairs clear expectations with solid support, and he’s always available to answer my questions,” she added. 

What Meghan Loves About Her Craft—In Her Own Words

“When I initially started blogging, I was skeptical about its efficacy, but I can’t argue with the numbers. According to McKinsey, blogs sent out as email newsletters are 40 times more likely to land you a customer than social media posts. Other data shows click-through rates for email at 50 to 100 times higher than social media. People still read. Words are still powerful. As a writer, that’s heartening to me. On a copywriter’s website or resume, you’ll usually find a cheeky list of topics they’ve gotten to write about. I’m no exception to this rule. I’ve written about plastic surgery, customer service, cheeseburgers, boating, Swiss watches, pre-K education, banking, commercial kitchens, large-scale signage, cryptocurrency, and electron microscopy. Every article I write expands my knowledge base, and I love collecting arcane bits of knowledge. My work as a writer has given me the capacity to talk to almost anyone I meet about something that interests them. This is with the exception of theoretical physicists, who frankly aren’t that great at dinner conversation anyway.”

Meghan’s Personal Life

Like many paid writers, Meghan is also a creative writer. She writes creative nonfiction essays and draws her inspiration from writers like E.B. White, Leslie Jamison, Karl Ove Knausgaard, and Anthony Bourdain. She says that she spends entirely too much time reading, trying to identify birds on trees, and thinking about, preparing, or eating food. We are incredibly lucky to have Meghan as a member of our Orchard team and are thrilled that she chooses to share her talents with us. Thank you for your contribution to our clients, Meghan.
