I started Symbiotic Marketing after working in a corporate environment where I saw first hand how unfairly small business owners can be treated. Having worked primarily for small businesses, I felt that something more should be done. With the help of my son and the support of my family, I chose to take the leap into entrepreneurship myself. The road is not an easy one, but the rewards are great, and I can’t imagine going back to where I was before. I love watching my clients grow and see their businesses taking off.
Phillip Whitley, owner MrPhab Photos
As an artist, my camera is my paint brush; my perspective is my style of painting.
It’s important to me that my photographs showcase a beautiful moment in a manner that crosses over into the hearts, minds, and memories of others. At the end of the day, I just want to make the world a more beautiful place, one camera snap at a time.
Amy Weibley, owner Weibley Media Consulting
I am a creative communicator specializing in graphic design, social media, writing, editing, brand awareness, website design, digital marketing and media relations. My lifetime career goal is to be continually challenged, to fully utilize my creativity to benefit others, and to be dedicated to lifelong learning.
Prior to starting my own business in 2018, I worked for over eight years in communications for nonprofits. Most recently, I worked for the Greater Chambersburg Chamber of Commerce where I advanced the organization’s communications platforms into the digital marketing age. During my tenure, I managed marketing and public relations for four organizations, coordinated cohesive branding for the Chamber, reinvented the branding for Downtown Chambersburg Inc., launched the 11/30 Network young professionals group, increased fundraising revenue, created the Chamber’s Sip & Savor fundraiser – which is now its largest event fundraiser – among other projects. Other organizations I have worked for include the Arlington Va. Chamber of Commerce, Artisphere, the U.S. Green Building Council, and Arena Stage.

Upon finishing my BA at Wilson College in 2017, I’ve worked as a Faculty Assistant, a Social Media Marketer/Blog Writer for a rug company, and currently freelance write for two different publications. The first is i99Radio, which I started writing for in November 2017, and write concert or album reviews for. The other I just recently started writing for in November 2018, called Chambersburg Neighbors, a magazine that goes out to over 2,000 residents in the Chambersburg community. I also gather other content for said magazine. I enjoy working with social media, and photography is another slight passion, but not my main focus. Along with newswriting, I also enjoy creative writing, ergo why I had two majors in college.
