Cole Bednarski found her calling in marketing after graduating from Eastern Michigan University in 2012 with what many consider to be a timelessly useless BS in Cultural Anthropology and Journalism with a minor in Ethics. When she quickly discovered how inapplicable her studies would be professionally, she applied her collegiate journalism experience and decade of use of social media to score a part-time PR job with an after school teen center in Saline. This quickly became a full-time spot as the marketing and events manager of Corner Brewery, before she finally find a permanent home at Human Element in May 2017 as a marketing manager. Today, you can find Cole doing one of two things away from the HEI office: trying to save the planet with positive energy and chill vibes, or hiking with her son, Bear. A fun fact: Cole is overly fond of Christmas activities and considers November 1 to be the beginning of the holiday season.
