Storyteller. Sightseer. Scattergories dominator.
Reno native Shyene (pronounced like Wyoming’s capital city) Joubert joined the KPS3 team in 2022 as a copywriter with a powerhouse work ethic in content creation, relationship building, and project management.
In 2018, Shyene graduated cum laude with a B.A. in English with a writing specialization and a nutrition minor. Her creative writing skills earned her an all-inclusive scholarship to the Surprise Valley Writers’ Conference, where she spent three days workshopping, learning, and camping among the California poppies on the event hosts’ front lawn.
Her first-ever job was at the Crisis Call Center, where she honed her skills in establishing rapport with callers (and clients) problem-solving and spinning positive narratives–all qualities Shyene utilizes in her current freelancing roles. As an assistant editor with Emerging Ink Solutions, she lives the bookworm dream of copyediting and proofreading fiction novels across numerous genres. She also serves as a resume consultant and contributing blog writer for Let’s Eat, Grandma.
Although she enjoys the flexibility of freelance work, Shyene missed strategizing with teammates on the best methods to bring projects to life (and she missed seeing dogs in the office almost as much). She takes any opportunity to learn and thrives in a fast-paced workplace with an ever-evolving to-do list. KPS3 presented the perfect fit to allow her to flex her writing chops while driving inspiring initiatives to meet her clients’ needs.
Outside of the office, Shyene jams out to carefully curated playlists while devouring manga or novels as she awaits takeoff for her next adventure. She studied abroad in England during her junior year of college and hopes to return to the continent soon, where there are a few more countries she’d like to visit: Scotland, Greece, and Switzerland. Once she builds up her endurance and practices her Spanish, she plans to hike to Machu Picchu.
When Shyene isn’t traveling, you can find her attending concerts (she’s on 84 out of her lifetime goal of 200), exploring new restaurants, curbing her competitiveness in board games, watching movies and anime, writing short stories and letters, weightlifting, or dabbling in any of the other various activities she loves (her most recent obsession being sewing).
