I just completed my first Facebook training with Treebranch Group and am so excited! I felt relaxed and was able to understand the basics in managing my pages. I am more comfortable in creating and posting events. I was even informed on the importance of reviewing settings and making sure I had secured passwords. I highly recommend using Treebranch and am looking forward to my next session!
Meet The Team
The branches of our Tree each represent 25 years of professional services in their specific field. Together we provide a strong foundation for a dynamic and creative approach for making businesses, non-profits, entrepreneurs, and parentpreneurs stand out and BE VISIBLE.
Denise and Jenn have been working together since 2013. They met at a client’s wine tasting where they hit it off while talking about website programming. Denise provided social media support on an on-going basis as contracted, along with website support for larger projects for the company Treebranchdesign that Jenn founded in 2011. Nelsa Nichols was a contractor to Treebranchdesign LLC since it’s formation in 2011, as a bookkeeper and office support. In 2018, when Treebranchdesign LLC abruptly became a sole proprietary it made sense to start with a fresh new name and look, hence Treebranch Group LLC was formed. The name Treebranch Group seemed like a perfect fit for describing the new business vision.
