Amanda Jones

Strategic Planning Director
Super Power: Enhanced Chaos Coordination

Sizzlin’ Fun Fact
Amanda has lost count of how many times she’s been asked to “clone” herself while in the office. And she finally figured out how to do just that — she asked her twin sister, Samantha, to join the team in 2020. And you thought we were joking when we said she could make any problem disappear.


Best known for her unparalleled ability to make problems disappear, Amanda is the SizzleForce Fixer. Whether she’s helping clients or her colleagues, she approaches every conversation with a level-head and a heart for service that keeps us all on task and working together towards a common goal. 

Amanda developed her marketing and project management skills through hands-on experience at SizzleForce. Seeing what worked and what didn’t in real-time cultivated her critical eye for details and marketing messages, which she uses daily to field client questions and copy-edit our latest big idea.

“Our clients are doing things that make a difference for their clients and knowing that I get to play a role in getting their message out there is really cool.”

Achievements & Awards:

  • Certified Customer Value Optimization Specialist (Digital Marketer)

Leanne King

Content Marketer
Super Power: Transmutation: Turning Cool Ideas into Even Cooler Content

Sizzlin’ Fun Fact

Leanne is an actress as well as a writer, and one of her most cherished performances was getting an opportunity to play Captain Hook in a production of Peter Pan. Thanks to her theatrical training, she also does accents and can cry on cue (but would prefer not to, thanks). She’s also a D&D nerd to her core.


Let’s get this out of the way; Leanne is not a fan of writing about herself. She much prefers writing about others! With a background in theater and dialogue writing, Leanne has a special talent for capturing an audience’s attention while being hyper-aware of a brand’s voice. Good copy is, to her, a complex potion made of dialogue, poetry, visual art, psychology, and computer science. Luckily, these are some of her favorite subjects!

In addition to her love of storytelling, Leanne adores problem-solving. It is that problem-solving drive that makes her copy functional as well as entertaining. Whether it’s writing copy for your website, social media pages, a blog post, an email campaign, or a neat little lead magnet, Leanne excels at creating valuable content that draws eyeballs.

Every brand is a character with a unique personality: my job is to capture that personality, communicate its message and make people want more! Knowing that something I’ve written is helping a client while providing value to the readers is definitely the most satisfying part of my day!”

Samantha Felix

Client Success Specialist
Super Power: Office Shapeshifter

Sizzlin’ Fun Fact

Samantha has a keen ability to juggle countless balls at work while ensuring her children maintain their premier membership status at their local emergency room due to frequent visits.


Samantha’s strengths lie in her ability to face challenges head-on and figure them out. Day in and day out, she uses her creativity and quick thinking to make life easier for both her colleagues and our client roster.

Whether she’s editing video, testing out new technologies or providing technical support, Samantha effortlessly transitions from task to task behind-the-scenes to keep SizzleForce moving in the right direction.

“I love that no two days are the same in our line of work, which allows me to bring my creativity to the table to get things done.”


Stefanie Cosman

Content & Conversion Specialist
Super Power: Fluent in Google Analytics

Sizzlin’ Fun Fact

Stefanie’s background includes theme park design. She loved the “Blue Sky” process where artists, writers, and tech geniuses all worked together to make sure that no disasters of a “Jurassic Park” level occurred. Because nobody likes when the dinosaurs eat the tourists.


Stefanie is happiest when science and art blend, and she especially loves it when that kind of magic happens in marketing. She loves nothing more than when a beautifully written sentence not only makes a reader swoon, but makes Google’s algorithm soar. As a Content Marketer at SizzleForce, her heart’s desire is to write copy that doesn’t just sound pretty, it also gets ranked.

Her background is in public relations and project management, primarily in the entertainment industry. Because of her love of storytelling, Stefanie hates nothing more than boring copywriting. Need to make the most mundane topic sound interesting? She loves a challenge.

“Every brand has a unique story to share. It’s in the telling that the magic happens.”
