We have been dreaming and thinking of starting our own business since we were seniors in high school and working with a local business in our area. Now, five years later, we are beginning Wholesome Media and are excited to introduce it to you. Wholesome Media is a media marketing business focused on improving clients’ media presence on social media. Our vision for the company was clear before we developed a name, while Abby took an online graphics course to develop her design skills further.
“The exercise was to develop a logo for a coffee shop based on the owner’s name – our teacher suggested researching the owner’s name to develop a vision and logo for the coffee shop, but I got sidetracked. I ended up looking up the meaning of Jeremy and the meaning of Abby, and we both had ‘wholesome’ in common. It felt like a sign that our company name should include ‘wholesome’ in some way, and then the designer part of me realized that the next word should start with ‘M’ because that would make logo design so much easier (aesthetically pleasing, symmetry, etc.).” – Abby
We landed on Wholesome Media, which we both felt we could relate to, and a good picture of what our business will be about. Wholesome means ‘promoting moral well-being,’ which is what we hope to do for every business we come in contact with.
We believe social media and digital marketing bring the community together, and the right message could lead to positive change. This philosophy was developed when Abby and I discussed how we wanted to help the community and the world, in 2020, at the start of the COVID19 virus. We want to help individuals market themselves digitally through trendy, effective social media tactics.
You are probably thinking… well, who are these people, and how are they qualified to do this. Well… here is a little bit of background on Abby and me. Abby, my wife, graduated from Alderson Broaddus University, where she obtained a degree in Mass Communications with an emphasis in digital media. She now works at Fellowship Bible Church as the Youth Administrator and in the marketing department. In her previous and current positions, she has increased digital media marketing efforts by one hundred percent, obtaining 800+ followers on each account within a year. Not only does she work at these locations, but she has worked on logo designs for

I also graduated from Alderson Broaddus University with a BA in Business Administration and a BA in Marketing. I later completed an MS in Marketing from The College of William and Mary. Additionally, I have worked on social media campaigns that have raised thousands of dollars for organizations and boosted viewership and presence on media outlets. I have worked on campaigns that promote
