Brittany Richardson

Brittany worked in customer service and marketing for the last two years when she landed her position as Publishing Coordinator with Gourmet Ads. With a passion for food and customer service, joining Gourmet Ads was a perfect fit. Brittany is happy to combine her business knowledge with her personal passions.

Born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, Brittany is a true North Carolina girl with a passion for Southern Cuisine, local sports and good old fashioned Southern hospitality. Also, a self-proclaimed “foodie”, Brittany loves to travel and experience new foods, drinks and ways of life. In her spare time Brittany uses her positive spirit to spread cheer – literally, by coaching cheerleading at a local high school.

Jennifer Cochran

Jennifer has 15 years of advertising experience working in ad sales, media planning and most recently as the online marketing manager for a publishing company. This Texas native turned California transplant is the busy mom of three whose love for food and people led her to Gourmet Ads in 2015.

As a Publisher Account Manager she’s likely the person on the other end of the phone helping beginner bloggers navigate the advertising world and seasoned site owners tackle their latest revenue goals. When she’s not serving as a knowledgeable resource for Publishers, Jennifer spends her time with her family enjoying the outdoors and running the occasional marathon.

Caroline Katz

The opportunity to help people and “drool over recipes all day” seemed like the perfect fit for Caroline when she joined the Gourmet Ads team in 2015. Since then, this New York native turned North Carolina transplant has been making strides by helping food site owners make a living doing what they love – creating amazing food content.

Caroline brings a wealth of relevant experience to the team.  After working for mobile app startup Yap as a Revenue Analyst, she joined Photobucket’s web and mobile ad operations team. Most recently she was a Senior Manager at NASCAR Digital Media where she was part of the launch of the new NASCAR.com and mobile app.  While at NASCAR she had the opportunity to work with some big brands and big names in racing, they did not, however let her anywhere near the cars!

When she’s not leading monetization strategies for Gourmet Ads Publishers, you can find Caroline running, reading and spending time with her daughter over a plate of her favorite southern delicacy – barbecue!

Krystle Smith

Krystle Smith is on a mission to help food bloggers, one support ticket at a time. As a veteran of the Publisher team, she’s earned her stripes as our resident Publisher Support Guru helping bloggers make the most of their advertising partnership.

This Pittsburgh, PA native is a food blogger herself, but when she’s not blogging about delicious baked goods, you’ll find her enjoying her favorite Mexican restaurant, creating her latest masterpiece in her adult coloring book (yes, it’s a thing!), or spending time outdoors with her two “human” dogs.
