Digital Marketing & Content Strategy

Bernice Walenty

A native Vermonter, Bernie has spent the last decade working with some of the leading tech and e-commerce companies throughout Boston and New York before relocating back to Burlington in late 2017. Bernie’s background in graphic design and digital marketing allows her to bridge the gap between traditional marketing and modern storytelling through creative content development. Bernie joined the BootstrapVT team in 2019 to help strengthen the content strategy and project management services that we are able to offer our clients.
