Northeast News welcomes Krystin Miller, marketing specialist

The Northeast News is adding on another member of our growing team! Welcome Krystin Miller, the new marketing specialist.

Miller was born and raised in Independence, Missouri, went to Truman High School, has an almost-three-year-old daughter, and graduated with a degree in business management from Western Governors University.

For the last week, Krystin has been working to introduce herself to business owners and the wonderful partners of the Northeast News in the community.

This new role, she said, is a perfect fit for her and she is eager to get started.

“I’m excited to work in a small tight-knit place,” she said. “This is ideal. I don’t want to work in a big office building where I get lost in the shuffle. I like to know that what I’m doing, you’re seeing immediate results and you’re seeing your work immediately. I’m excited to work in a place where I feel like I’m actually doing something and making a difference.”

What she is most looking forward to, she said, is the relational piece.

“More than anything, I want to build relationships between the paper and local businesses,” she said. “I want it to be more than generating income; I want to make sure that business owners know that we are here to help them, not just to give them news or sell them something. We all want to be partners together.”

With a degree in business management, she said she has a lot to draw upon to bring into this role.

“I have that background, not just in business, but how to deal with people, interact with people, how to gauge people, and know how they want you to interact with them,” she said. “I feel like having a business management degree helps me to deal with people and those interactions will benefit me more. In my opinion, marketing is me saying ‘tell me what you need, tell me what you are doing and what your business is doing.’”
