Jenna Carroll

Jenna Carroll, a somewhat recent addition to Nezperce, is the new marketing and advertising consultant at the Idaho County Free Press.

As the online editor for The Idaho County Free Press, most of my work is done, well, online. I rarely set foot in the office in Grangeville, instead working from the comfort of my living room.

Last Friday, however, I did attend a meeting at the office and was looking forward to meeting the latest addition to the Free Press family. When Jenna Carroll turned around, she must have seen the surprised look of recognition on my face.

“Yeah, I live in Nezperce,” she said with a smile.

I’m thrilled to have another Nezperson on staff. Jenna, who is originally from Idaho Falls, is the new advertising and marketing consultant. The fact that she’s a Gilmore Girls fan is just icing on the cake.

So, if you’d like to place an ad in the Idaho County Free Press, contact Jenna (or Lisa Adkison): 208-983-1200.

ICYMI: If you haven’t seen a copy of our recently published Farm & Ranch magazine, you missed the full-page color photo of Quin Wemhoff. Copies of the magazine can be found at various businesses around the area, such as Nezperce Ag, Bell Equipment, Primeland and Les Schwab in Grangeville. You can read my story featuring Quin and the rest of the publication online.
