Let’s meet with Blanca Melendez, Taryn Himmelright
and Zoe Nikitaidis
Taryn is an American expat whose adventure to Germany with her husband and three sons began in 2015. Taryn's journey in her career started with a degree in Journalism, but took a creative turn that eventually led her to begin her own business in May 2020 doing what she loves as a web designer.
Blanca helps small entrepreneurs tell their story and connect with their ideal clients. As a portrait and brand photographer, she also uses marketing mentoring to help her clients hone their brand message.
A life with many twists and turns took Blanca through Business & Marketing school and years of working for big corporations and jobs she kind of liked but never loved. So, she quit and started her own business over 10 years ago.
Working as a Brand photographer, Blanca came to realize how many small entrepreneurs lacked the business or marketing background to grow their own business. Helping small entrepreneurs make a living doing what they love became Blanca’s mission.
Blanca is a born Costarrican but now based out of Herzogenaurach, Germany, where she lives with her German husband, two sons and Hiro, her furry baby.
Since graduating from University in her birth country Wales in 1999, Zoe moved six times whilst building her career as a Director of Spa and Leisure before moving to Herzogenaurach in 2009 with a six week old in arms whilst her husband embarked on a new role.
Zoe joined the IWG a couple of weeks after moving and met a lovely group of women, one of them that would eventually take a leap of faith in her and provide her with an opportunity to enter the working world again and to re-start her career. In 2013, having been out of the workforce for four years, although she dabbled in a couple of projects, Zoe rejoined in 2013 taking a career move and have since been navigating the corporate world of Brand Communications, Digital Marketing and Commercial Excellence.
