Hey friends!

We know it’s been a while since you last heard from us. So we thought we’d make a comeback with some fan-tas-tic news. We have two new teammates! *dance parties commence*

With our second birthday on the horizon, we couldn’t be more excited to be growing our team. Get to know them right here and get ready for some big bright beautiful things in the Tellwell world!

Marisa Jackels

Marisa Jackels is a Southern California native who moved to Fargo-Moorhead for Concordia College, and stayed for the hotdish. She’s been described as a “temptress of words” and revels in storytelling in a variety of mediums.

After two years of writing with local non-profit Emerging Prairie, Marisa is joining the Tellwell team to help create lots of content: blog posts, killer newsletters, all the goods. Look for her hilarity on our social media channels (Twitter: @wetellwell, Facebook: Tellwell #shamelessplug).

In her spare time you can find Marisa plunking away on the piano or waiting in an airport terminal for her next adventure. Here in town you’ll likely catch her at the Prairie Den or stocking up on boba drinks at Teaberry.

Justin Odney

Justin Odney is a social media enthusiast, fantasy football guru, and community builder who is currently finishing his senior year at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota. His background includes expertise in event planning, digital marketing strategy, and community partnership programming. Also having perfectly combed hair.

At Tellwell, Justin will be responsible for conducting market research, acquiring and maintaining clientele, and providing necessary support for members of the Tellwell Tribe. He is hopeful that his love for the ten dollar founding father will be emulated throughout the office.

You can catch Justin at the Prairie Den or on campus at Concordia where he is involved in a number of activities; from being the lead in the upcoming musical Big Fish (yes, like the amazing movie), planning events, or hustling, as usual.


Thanks for getting to know our new teammates.

We’re excited.

Bring it on!

-The Tellwell Team
