DAGA Trivia 14

"Acadia has been my home since 2010.  When I say home I truly mean that as it has always been a very welcoming, warm, and accepting place to work.  I feel fortunate that I have found a place where I never dread going into work each day.  There is no “corporate” culture but instead you will find a relaxed environment where the owners and principles are available and open to all.  Acadia is a company with big ambitions that retains the same ideals and approach when it was just starting out."

"My time with Acadia has truly provided an opportunity for me to grow, both professionally and personally. Acadia fosters a wonderful work environment that supports professional exploration, discovery, and innovation. Acadia has such a strong sense of community; our core values align perfectly with those that I have dictated for my own business. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be part of the Acadia team."

Kim P.

Bookkeeper/Office Manager

Acadia has really been a foundation of growth for my career. They are the ones who really took me from college student to a business professional. The workplace environment is welcoming and the company encourages work/life balance. We’re an active group who enjoys attending events as a group doing things as a company. At Acadia, I get to work on all kinds of different projects and am, therefore, constantly learning new concepts and ideas.

Our Team


Marge Murphy
Title: Chief Trailblazer
#MakesUpWords since 1999

A culmination of her life experiences, Acadia sprang up as a blend of identities: engineer, entrepreneur, wife, and mother, friend and neighbor. Marge has built a company that values each employee’s unique gifts and because of that culture, a company that delivers results to its clients. Marge has a clear focus on hiring and training the best people, and she leads with heart, a sense of humor and an authenticity that has no rival. She even makes up her own words. Wonky, right?

When not constantly managing change and growth, Marge is spending time with her husband Mike and being a supportive mom to her grown kids. She is active, too. In the office, you’ll often find her working on her treadmill. Out in God’s creation, Marge is biking, hiking or kayaking and always channeling her energy to learn and grow, and help everyone she meets to be the best version of themselves.

Mike Murphy
Director of Business Development
Title: Head of Global Trends
#NeverSetsTheBarLow since 2013
With an extensive and varied background in engineering, sales, and marketing, Mike knows how to advise our clients because he’s been where they are. He’s always looking ahead to the next goal. A natural adventurer he takes the team into the future with his strong leadership. Please don’t ever tell Mike it can’t be done. That just fuels his New York-based drive to prove you wrong. (and makes us all have to work harder)

To say that Mike is a fan of baseball is an understatement. Outside of his family (he's married to Acadia's president Marge), it is his biggest passion. In the 80’s he pitched for the Indians and helps coach youth throughout the Dayton region. He also enjoys keeping up with his son who plays for the Oakland A’s and helping his daughter with her career as a certified athletic trainer. He also is a freelance (emphasize free) home repair specialist for his daughter's vintage home.
Alan Beck
Technical Inside Sales and IT Manager
Title: Creator of Opportunities
#DocumentHoarder since 2011
Alan is a list-building, campaign-managing, report-analyzing sharp shooter. He is known to be a great listener and that is the key to his success. He translates what our customers need into action and makes sure we deliver results. Alan thrives when presented with a complex problem. He will dig into it, dissect all the options and then nail a decision on how to move forward.

He is married to another Acadia employee, Shelley, and together they share a deep faith and their awesome backyard pool. Alan dabbles in IT, talks like he knows a lot about sports and politics and delivers it in such a way that you are unsure if he’s being totally serious. He plays a large role in creating the team environment at Acadia and we are lucky to have his calm and confident ways.
Shelley Beck
Lead Development Representative
Title: Lead Development Detective
#AlwaysBeKind since 2011
Shelley is one of our seasoned LDRs, and has the results to prove it. Loaded with self-confidence and a positive attitude, she thrives when she makes a solid connection for our clients. Shelley is a real team player, willingly sharing her knowledge and secrets to success. Daring and fearless by nature, she does not give up easily. She is a real inspiration to our team!

Outside of work, Shelley is an estate sale junkie, looking for the next greatest bargain. To stay in shape, she swims and practices yoga and crochets to relax. Shelley along with her husband and fellow employee, Alan, take our family-like work environment to a whole new level.
Kim Petro
Bookkeeper/Office Manager
Title: Money Maven
#ThatDoesNotGoThere since 2014
Kim is an organization queen and she loves to find creative solutions to new problems. She doubles as our in-house bookkeeper and office manager where she is responsible for the financial well-being of the business while blessing the team with a full supply of coffee. Her fun-loving and inviting personality makes her a friend to all and a highly valued member of the Acadia family.

Outside of work, Kim is passionate about being active in the community. She enjoys gardening, singing, and tabletop gaming. She can often be found out supporting local businesses and is inspired by the world around her. Kim cares deeply about the people she surrounds herself with and her energetic personality is contagious making the workplace that much more exciting. 
Bridget Fricke
Operations Manager
Title: Operations Optimization Wrangler
#StayingOrganized since 2018

With a mixed background in biomedical engineering and entrepreneurship, Bridget is no stranger to navigating the complex technical and industrial B2B space. As our Operations Manager, she implements strategic initiatives and has a knack for bringing together the right people, technology, and resources that will create the best result. Bridget doesn't shy away from a challenge. She thrives when she feels her brain is engaged and is able to take on multiple projects.

Bridget's friends describe her as "motivated and determined, yet easy-going". She enjoys playing sports such as volleyball and she uses this passion in her volunteer work with special needs children. When's she's not playing sports or volunteering, Bridget loves spending her free time with family. She is one of our newest additions to the team and we're excited to have her.

Tami Randall
HR and Quality Assurance
Title: Director of People and Culture
#HRQAPDQ since 2006
Tami has a background in business administration and has a keen understanding of compassionate communication. She is an excellent listener and a supportive team member always at the ready to seek the best solution and have fun doing it. As an expert in quality assurance, Tami makes sure our documentation is up to snuff, consistent and brings tremendous value to our clients. She also wears a different hat entirely and sees to it that we are hiring the best people to join the Acadia family. She recently took on the role of Operations Manager/Puppeteer, making sure each client's needs are being met. Our very own celebrity, she even has a patent.

Tami loves family, friends, wine tasting and traveling and not necessarily in that order. A nature lover for sure, she also likes human nature and is drawn toward people of high integrity. Everyone at Acadia values Tami for her forthrightness and honest advice. She brings in treats, too, which helps.
Lisa Moore
Data Management Specialist
Title: Data Storyteller
#DataGirl since 2011
Lisa cleans data. She organizes data. She trends data. She delivers that data in a way that Acadia can make informed decisions. She is content to work solo, but loves collaborating with a team. Lisa gets really excited (doesn’t everyone?) when she develops repeatable processes that improve the accuracy and efficiency of data reporting. Don’t ask her to present in front of a group, though. That makes this strong, dependable woman weak in the knees.

It is not surprising then that when she is not working, she’s still doing precision work like sewing and crochet, and no doubt analyzing lots of stuff. A mother of 4 and grandma to 6, Lisa is a true mother hen. Do not cross her family or friends. She might bite.
Eileen Simon
Quality Assurance and Content Writer
Title: Director of Storytelling
#Wordsmith since 2017
As a librarian by trade, Eileen brings a unique perspective to Acadia, and is an expert at spotting and creating great content. She has put these skills to use as our contract content writer and now in QA as a full-fledged Acadia employee. She works hard to make sure what we do and what we document are the same thing, and we still count on her to write the great content our clients have come to expect. 

In her free time, she knits, crochets, and grows her stash of leftover yarn, especially between events at her kids' swim meets and dance competitions. Eileen feels accomplished when she makes something for dinner that her husband and three kids all like to eat. Always at the ready with a Simpsons quote, she can be counted on to lend an ear, a kind thought, and offer her favorite dessert recipe. But mostly, she's got a great sense of humor and we're happy she finally joined us.
Lauren Stemley
Digital Marketing Specialist
Title: Digital Prophet
#CrazyPlantLady since 2020
Lauren’s background is primarily in digital marketing and content creation. She is a busy bee around here, making sure that everything falls into place. She does her best work when she is executing new ideas that promote growth for our clients. Knowing that she is making a difference brings Lauren peace of mind and is why she enjoys doing what she does.

Lauren is a true outdoor enthusiast. She loves gardening, exploring new landscapes, and capturing moments through photography. We are happy to have Lauren on our team, but most of all, we are grateful for her green thumb, without which we would not be able to keep plants alive in the office.
Ranita Cheema
Junior Client Relationship Manager
Title: Relationship Builder
#CreativeSupport since 2018

Ranita is a real go-getter. She has a broad range of experience and continues to learn new things. Her love for animals led her to become a veterinary assistant before deciding on a career in marketing. Her past experiences have given her the ability to work in fast-paced environments demanding strong organizational, technical, and interpersonal skills. Her recent education has also allowed her to develop experience in analyzing market strategies. As an intern, Ranita provides an integral support system for "the creative minds that be." She's not afraid to voice her opinion and brings a lot of fresh ideas to our team.

When she's not hitting the books, Ranita loves fitness and photography. She also enjoys taking her dog for long walks to spend quality time together. She's inspired by other's accomplishments as they drive her to do the same. Her warm and outgoing personality makes her a perfect fit for the Acadia team.

Jack Gill
Web Development Intern
Title: Website Wizard
#ReallyCoolGuy since 2019
With an associate degree of business in graphic design from the Modern College of Design, Jack is our go-to guy for all things web. He is fluent in HTML and CSS, and dabbles in JavaScript making Jack a coding wizard. We don’t believe that the word “no” is in his vocabulary and it’s become a running game around the office to find something that he can’t do. This has proven to be pretty difficult as Jack will never shy away from a challenge.
Jack’s creativity doesn’t end at work. He enjoys creating videos and editing photos in his free time. As a game fanatic, Jack plays a wide variety of games including video games, board games, and card games. His light-hearted personality can brighten anyone’s day and we love having him on our team.
Parker Getz
Marketing Intern
Title: The New Guy
#JustHappyToBeHere since 2020
Parker is a rising senior at the University of Dayton double majoring in Marketing and Entrepreneurship with a minor in Management Information Systems. Parker's prior work experience has exposed him to digital marketing and sales making this internship role a great fit. Parker is excited to make a positive impact on the company. When Parker is out of the office, his interests involve exercise, friends, cooking, and photography.
