Emmelyn Rugotska
Founder and Community Manager
I’ve had a passion for local businesses ever since I started my first business when I was 19. Community collaboration & cooperative marketing concept was brewing for many years and I’m happy to see all the community support! I hope you get involved and I’m available for ideas at emmie@shoplocalappleton.com.

Kate Tarr
Social Media Manager Extraordinaire
My favorite part of this job is I can do it almost anywhere and that allows me to spend more time with my family. My idea of the perfect day would start with going on a walk with my husband Wes, two boys Jaxon and Kingston and our family dog Carmella! I think of myself as very creative, passionate, loving, fun and that girl who became a dedicated working mother.
