Benjamin Millikan, Associate Editor
Ben lives in Diamond Bar, CA. He studied English/comparative literature at Cal-State Fullerton before working as a copy editor for Bleacher Report for five-and-a-half years. Says Ben: "I'm excited to help business owners and CEOs shape and create engaging and meaningful content that will thereby help other business owners and CEOs who face similar challenges in the workplace. I hope to establish a solid rapport with these content creators and help YEC/CommunityCo continue to grow as a trusted source for building brands in various industries."
Kirra Fedyszyn, Associate Editor
Kirra lives in Cincinnati, OH. She received her B.A. in history with a minor in English literature from Miami University in Oxford, OH, and her M.F.A. in creative writing from Carlow University in Pittsburgh, PA.
She comes to CommunityCo from Schaeffer's Investment Research, where she wrote and edited articles for the company's blog, mostly focused on stock market research and analysis. Prior to that, she spent several years as a freelance writer and editor working on numerous educational publishing projects. Says Kirra: "I am excited to work with members who have already proven their business chops and are anxious to share their knowledge and experience with others. My favorite thing about editing is helping incredibly smart people turn their ideas into powerful, engaging content. I love to learn, so I'm looking forward to working with a variety of members, so that I can benefit from their breadth of knowledge in different fields."
Outside of work, Kirra is an accomplished gluten-free baker. She reads as much as she can, dabbles in photography, and knits.
