Prior to founding 8 Waves Creative, Michelle spent 29 years managing business and technical professions in commercial, private, government, and international sectors.

Michelle’s favorite quote aptly describes her: “Sing like no one’s listening, love like you’ve never been hurt, dance like nobody’s watching, and live like it’s heaven on earth.”

Senior Project Manager
As our Senior Project Manager, Sharon becomes the “Skipper” for initiatives that require multiple ‘hands on deck’. She has a great eye for each marketing channel – so our clients benefit from one person leading the charge and keeping all of our teams moving in the same direction. Details never fall overboard with Sharon, she’s an organizational ninja. Having worked in the corporate world for many years, Sharon has had her hands in a variety of marketing channels that have fueled her knowledge and understanding of how the pieces fit together for the best possible outcome.
Like seemingly everyone here at 8 Waves, Sharon has an affinity for the beach. And when not at the beach, she’s patrolling the sidelines at her children’s sporting events.
Director of Administration
Raised in West Newbury and a graduate of Pentucket High School, Jessica is rooted in the local communities and takes pride in the growth and development in recent years. She enjoys the outdoors, traveling, and spending time with her family and friends. Jessica studied Aviation Flight Training & Management in college, where she attained her Private Pilot License. She then worked for several years in Operations and Ramp Services for American Airlines in Boston. After traveling the world and living in the city, Jessica moved back home to the Newburyport area and became a mother. She has since worked in property management, office administration, and sales, and found a healthy balance of work and home in the office here at 8 Waves Creative.
Having recently joined the team as an intern, Matt is always eager to lend a hand so that he can learn more about the world of digital marketing. He is currently studying Communication, Psychology, and Sociology at Wake Forest University in North Carolina—but Matt grew up in northern Massachusetts and will always consider it home. While he now tends to an ever-growing passion for storytelling through a variety of mediums, creative writing was where Matt first discovered how much he enjoyed it. Applying that love for creative writing, Matt uses a trained eye to revise, edit, proof, and even develop (soon!) our written content. If Matt’s not exploring downtown Newburyport or spending time with his cats, he’s probably caught up in a good book or television show.
Alexandra is one of our interns. She has lived locally in Newburyport her whole life and attended Triton Regional High School. She is currently a student at the University of Delaware and is studying math, communications, and advertising. She is creative and hard working and there to help with anything and everything around the office. Outside of working she enjoys skiing and music.
