WANT AN AGENCY THAT HUSTLES LIKE A MOTHER?

Meet our team of
Mother Hustlers

Full Swing PR was founded in 2019 by Caitlin Copple and is now co-owned by Caitlin and her “work wife,” Holly Conti.

We focus daily on being anti-mean girls.

  • We’re gate openers for underrecognizd leaders who may have had past doors slammed in their faces, or who’ve never been invited to the table.

  • We lead like we mother (outside of gender boxes), helping clients make headlines and stand in the power of their stories, raising up our own tiny humans, and nurturing our ever-growing collection of houseplants.
  • Our team has a deep sense of responsibility to our values (if you don’t believe abortion is a human right, we probably won’t work well together), our clients, and a nurturing spirit. We won’t dim your shine because we know that’s where your PR superpower lies.

  • Our calling is to elevate under-represented leaders, and we love our jobs. We’re a team who truly care about our clients, and we get shit done. If you are tired of feeling like agencies don’t get you or don’t care about you, try us on for size.

Caitlin Copple

Founding Partner + Head of PR (she/they)

Caitlin helps underrecognized leaders be seen and sought after so they can reclaim their power and rewrite the human story. With media placements in Fast Company, TechCrunch, The New York Times, and many more, Caitlin’s tenacity and connections always exceed expectations. Caitlin’s work has elevated the stories of female founders, sold books, won groundbreaking elections, passed legislation in multiple states, and ousted a lawmaker accused of sexual assault.

In 2012, Caitlin became the first openly-queer person elected to the Missoula City Council. She ran because the incumbent voted against the city’s LGBTQ-inclusive non-discrimination ordinance, and Caitlin couldn’t sit by and let that happen in her community.

This story is central to how Caitlin operates: she advocates against harmful policies and commits to changing them. She’s not afraid to be the ‘first’ or the ‘only,’ and her commitment to being her authentic self and helping others share their authentic stories is something she brings to every person she works with.

In 2019, Caitlin was named to Idaho Business Review’s Accomplished Under 40, and in 2021, she was honored among the publication’s Idaho Women of the Year. A sought-after public speaker, Caitlin has delivered workshops at Alt Summit, Boise State University’s Andrus Center for Public Policy’s Women and Leadership Conference, Philanthropy Northwest’s Philanthropy Institute, Women’s Startup Lab, and NEW Leadership Idaho. She holds an M.A. in journalism from the University of Montana. Caitlin co-founded Boise Women Who Get Shit Done in 2017. An avid skier and bad golfer, Caitlin loves exploring the outdoors, especially with her young son, Tollie.

Holly Conti

Partner + Head of Digital Marketing (she/her)

Holly is the co-owner of Full Swing PR, where she creates PR and digital platforms for those historically left out of the conversation: women, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ leaders. Since joining Full Swing in 2020, the agency has more than tripled its revenue, and she became part-owner in 2021.

Holly believes that ethical marketing starts with respect for the consumer.She brings a campaigner’s tenacity paired with a strategic mind to each project, focusing on maximizing impact for her clients.

To that end, Full Swing is not about helping people get famous. We work with people who want their PR to help them grow their business and make the impact they dream of in the world. To do that, Holly helps ensure her clients have the right pieces in place to capture the attention they get from PR and turn those eyeballs into customers.

In her nearly three years with Full Swing, Holly has helped clients increase their email lists from 2k to 20k, more than triple the sales of their online courses in under six months, grow their social media followings by 10k, 20k, and 50k, plan and execute paid ad strategies of over $300k, and have five- and six-figure launches in under two weeks. What really lights her up is leading her team of intentional women focused on learning, growth, and elevating one another.

Holly brings over a decade of experience managing brand platforms in digital, television, and print media. She has led strategy and implementation for multiple six-figure e-courses and digital product launches. A former account executive at a social impact marketing agency, Holly’s past clients include HP, Smithsonian, and 1440 Multiversity where she produced multi-week brand photoshoots for over 300 participants.

She holds a bachelor’s degree from Syracuse University. When she’s not at work, you can find her meditating on her chase lounge, leaving a trail of spilt coffee around her house, or hiking with her husband and young daughter, Eloise, in the upstate NY woods.

Brooke Anthony

Operations Manager (she/her)

Nurse-turned-operations enthusiast Brooke joined the Full Swing team at the tail end of 2023. She brings more than a decade of expertise in operations and client engagement.

With a diverse background leading teams at renowned companies in digital and e-commerce industries, she brings a wealth of experience to our team. The consummate multitasker, Brooke, has overseen $13 million in revenue for 20+ clients while managing a dedicated workforce of 350 employees.

Brooke loves people and finds her stride steering Full Swing’s day-to-day operations while getting major projects across the finish line.

Yes, KPI dashboards are her love language (along with boba and macarons to snack on during a busy day). As part of Full Swing’s leadership team, Brooke comes in clutch with client account management, employee engagement, and our own forecasting and budgeting.

Like most of our team, Brooke is a parent and partner first. She’s the dedicated mom of two adorable little girls and the wife of a newly minted police officer in Raleigh, North Carolina, which she now calls home despite being raised a Georgia girl.

Kana Oliver

Senior Project Manager (she/her)

Kana joined Full Swing in early 2022 as an intern, and we knew we couldn’t let her go. In the last few years, Kana has increased project efficiency, taken on multi-faceted planning, and helped train team members, subsequently stepping into a senior project manager role in 2024. 

Blending her experience in public relations with a natural affinity for organizing (she’s a Virgo, after all), Kana turns clients’ goals into action, and no client priority has ever been sidestepped with her at the helm. She’s a whiz at tracking, balancing, and managing team and client deliverables, presenting easily digestible KPI analytics, and fostering meaningful relationships with our clients’ executive teams. Kana was recognized as a gold-level Bulldog PR Up & Comer in 2023 for her achievements.

The proud daughter of an immigrant woman solopreneur, Kana grew up working alongside her mom, learning the ins and outs of operating a small business. This inspired Kana to help women and other historically underrecognized people craft stories that share their expertise and establish their industry credibility. 

She lives in the Seattle-ish area with her fiance and two cats, who sometimes make cameos on our Zoom calls.

Marlene Vences Rendon

Copywriter (she/her)

After watching a couple of episodes of Mad Men in high school, Marlene realized her passion for writing could be an actual career. Born and raised in Nampa, Idaho, Marlene loves midday strolls around downtown, a good latte, and spending time with her sisters and her furry nieces and nephews. Marlene holds media arts and anthropology degrees from the College of Western Idaho. She’s passionate about understanding different cultures and how they relate. While copywriting is her passion, Marlene has also worked as a publicist on affordable housing issues. Marlene loves working with underrepresented leaders in her community to elevate and highlight their voices in the mainstream media.

Layne Watkins

Executive Assistant (she/her/hers)

Layne joined the Full Swing team in January of 2023 after falling head over heels in love with Full Swing’s commitment to passing the microphone to “those historically left out of the conversation.” A major part of Layne’s identity was formed as a musician in the Boise, Idaho community. As a band leader, she consistently passed the literal microphone as often as possible to voices that deserved to be elevated and heard.

An Enneagram 2 and a passionate “maximizer,” Layne feels right at home in a supporting role to the Mother Hustlers on this team. A “master of calendars”, she helps free up Caitlin and Holly’s time to do what they love most – spend time with clients and their families. Layne also loves to interact with new folks and has already proven herself to be a warm welcome to many of Full Swing’s new clients.

A Mother Hustler herself, she’s the proud mama to Ivy and Leo – two of the world’s most ferociously funny children. She’s married to Adam, lead singer of Boise’s best synth-pop 80’s cover band. When she isn’t at work or spending time with her family, she’s rearranging furniture, writing music, or snuggling her two Australian Shepherds.

Jessica Holmes 

Senior Copywriter (she/her)

A brand storyteller with serious street cred, Jessica Holmes is an uncommon creative unicorn with live storytelling and stand up comedy chops. 

She’s a senior copywriter and creative director with 20 years of dynamic ad agency and freelance marketing experience. To our client’s delight, she uses the power of words to build business momentum and make waves. A natural idea-maker, Jessica weaves in our client’s mission and business goals as the voice behind their brands and campaigns that speak to people and sell. 

Noteworthily, Jessica is the co-creator and original emcee of the wildly popular live storytelling program, Story Story Night, and the inaugural winner of Boise’s Funniest Person standup competition. You can often see Jessica driving her vintage Cadillac in her hometown of Boise, where she likes thrift store shopping then fashion blogging about her finds.

Lindsay Lodis

Senior Publicist (she/her/hers)

Lindsay met the Full Swing squad in 2020 and watched from afar as the agency grew in personnel and impact. In 2023, she jumped at the chance to join the team as a senior publicist and helps bring leaders who have been unfairly relegated to the nosebleed sections of their industries onto the brightly lit stages where they belong.

Lindsay grew up in Colorado and received her undergraduate degree from Colorado State University where she was a DJ on the college radio station and studied protected area management. Upon graduation, Lindsay played park ranger in a variety of seasonal positions that took her from the Oregon Coast (tidepool ranger!) to Yosemite’s Tuolumne Meadows (wilderness ranger!) to the Peruvian rainforest (resident naturalist in an eco-tourism lodge!).

Ultimately, Lindsay landed at the University of Maine where she earned an M.S. in Forest Resources and an M.A. in Communications. She successfully combined those academic interests as a communications manager at the University of Idaho’s Rangeland Center, then plunged into the wild world of healthcare as the marketing and communications manager for Idaho WWAMI Medical Education.

Lindsay is thoroughly engaged in Boise’s music, yoga, and literary scenes, enjoys the bingeable popcorn + wine TV combo, and stays busy raising two cool kids.

Jessica Rizk  

Project Manager

Jessica fell in love with customer engagement and marketing at the mere age of 14 while working at her parents’ Egyptian restaurant. She developed a knack for building strong relationships with the regulars and naturally promoted the delicious dishes her mom cooked. 

Jessica graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in marketing in 2021. She brings nearly five years of experience forming strong relationships and connecting with others, including managing 30+ clients and their campaigns before joining Full Swing in 2024 as a project manager. She strives to grow personally and professionally by learning new technologies and strategies to take projects to the next level.  

Jessica is passionate about community service and being a helpful resource to those around her. She lives in Everett, Washington, where she enjoys swimming, spending time with her friends and family, and reading.

Noelle Jackson

Director of PR and Client Services

As a strategist with unparalleled chops as a writer, creative, and passionate brand advocate, Noelle Jackson has a knack for amplifying brands and using storytelling to help CEOs reach their business goals. 

Noelle brings more than a decade of integrated PR and marketing experience, working primarily with consumer brands and executives in the lifestyle, hospitality, food and beverage, wellness, and arts industries. Before joining the Full Swing team in 2024, she led her own agency for a decade, developing strategy and executing integrated PR and marketing campaigns for a diverse range of consumer brands.

With experience developing strategy, media and influencer relations, content, and social media for brands, Noelle has gained media placements for her clients in CNN, FOX Sports, Forbes, Architectural Digest, Yahoo, and more. She’s led international, cross-functional teams for the U.S. brand launch of IWG pic’s bespoke members club No18.

Diya’s DEI quarterly team workshops and audits ensure that we create diversity, equity, and inclusionary initiatives and actions to support our growing team of aspiring anti-racists.

Uyen Do

Creative Coordinator (she/they)

A certified meme queen, no social media trend gets past Uyen’s Gen-Z humor and wildly artistic mind. Although she’s been studying abroad in the Northwest for nearly seven years, Uyen calls Vietnam home. That’s also where she first discovered her passion to make a visual impact.

Uyen graduated with a marketing and digital media degree from the College of Idaho. She’s no stranger to immersing herself in environments that lack representation and equity. The impact she makes through her design and social media work helps amplify the voices of other underrecognized leaders, sharing their stories through beautifully crafted visuals.

Not only is Uyen bilingual (and soon to be trilingual!), she taught English classes in Vietnam for three years. Besides constantly trying to wrangle her menace of a cat, Sesame, Uyen enjoys drinking bubble tea and exploring film photography in her free time.

Renee Serrant-Layne

Digital Coordinator (she/her/hers)

Renée has been supporting Full Swing since 2022, acting as our digital coordinator as a subcontractor through her own business. A true Enneagram 8 with a decade of experience working as a business and marketing strategist, Renée helps busy entrepreneurs launch their products or services, handling the back-end details so her clients can focus on work that truly sparks their passion.

Renée helps share our work by automating email sequences, designing landing pages for our clients, and managing their websites. Through her automation-made easy approach, Renée ensures our clients and their audiences effortlessly interact along their sales journey.

A triple threat, Renée speaks English, French, and Spanish and holds a French and management studies degree from the University of the West Indies. You can find Renée (with her unmistakably colorful hair) and her kiddo enjoying the beach, the park, and a tasty treat on the sunny island of Barbados, where they live.

Renowned for her strategic yet bold approach, Shanetta has a knack for unearthing compelling stories that resonate with media and readers. Her mission, both personally and professionally, is to be a vessel for stories typically untold.

When she’s not busy pitching story ideas, Shanetta is a mom to her busy toddler, a freelance writer for major publications, and enjoying all that sunny Los Angeles offers.
