When owner Kelsey Stine began Vela Creative Co. in 2019, the saying “happy people do great work” was instilled in the company's roots. Not only is the internal team of creatives doing what they love, but they are allowing time back in their clients’ schedules to do the same. Wearing a variety of hats when running your own business is inevitable; however, Vela becomes an extension of your team, collaborating with you to meet your goals and provide you with high-quality work.
Born and raised in the Black Hills, Kelsey has always had a heart for helping others grow and seeing her community thrive. Mixing her passion of marketing, design, leadership and fundraising, Kelsey has worked in a variety of industries including nonprofits, media, engineering, and more.
When Kelsey isn’t in her office, she is traveling with her husband Trevor, or simply enjoying a quiet morning curled up with her cats, a cup of coffee, and a book in hand.
Jenna’s passion for all things creative started at a young age. Growing up in rural Montana, she was often crafting with her mother and learning DIY skills from her father. Today, she is sharing her love of marketing by assisting clients reach their entrepreneurial goals through creative solutions.
When she isn’t behind her computer, she is out playing fetch with her goldendoodle Sully, spending time with family and friends, or scrolling Pinterest for her next home improvement project.
Sarah was born and raised in the Black Hills, and has now ventured east to Iowa. She began writing at an early age, and as a child vowed that someday she would be a published author. After spending a decade in the customer service industry, Sarah returned to school to study botany and herbal medicine, and started her own small business. In 2020, she joined the Vela Creative Co. team as a content creation specialist where she has been able to return to her first love of writing.
In her free time, Sarah enjoys exploring the Black Hills, camping, attending live music events, and spending time with friends and family.
An avid traveler, Sienny was born and raised in Indonesia and has lived in three different continents extensively throughout her life. Unlike her peers, her love for design didn’t come from drawing or painting, but from the field of communications, which she studied during her master’s. Her professional background includes working with various startups and nonprofits, including the United Nations.
Sienny is a newbie yogi and runner, and enjoys being active in her free time. She also loves reading classic fictional detective novels and listening to true crime podcasts.
