BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Mix boundless energy with a good dose of athletic leadership skills and even a dash of Disney Magic and you have Susanne Vaughn, the newest addition to the Space Coast Daily team.
“We are very pleased to have Susanne on the Space Coast Daily staff as she brings outstanding enthusiasm, skills and aptitudes to our already very talented and experienced team of multimedia and social media producers, journalists and editors,” said Space Coast Daily President and Publisher Tom Palermo.
Vaughn, Business Development Specialist for Brevard’s number one multimedia news and information source, brings a bounty of new ideas to the job she assumed Nov. 18.
“I will be focusing on conceiving and producing compelling content marketing, brand-building and marketing our many special events,” said the Melbourne resident.
A native of a town called Bel Air, 30 miles north of Baltimore, Maryland, Vaughn earned her bachelor’s degree from Washington College in Chestertown, situated on the Eastern Shore in Maryland.
She majored not in just one or two subjects, but rather in three: studio art, art history and theater design.
What did she do after graduation? Go to Disney World, of course. This was not a vacation, however, but an audition and a subsequent job offer within the Mouse House as Vaughn became one of the performers during special events, world-famous shows, and parades at the Magic Kingdom and Epcot.
“I was from a small town and went to a small college, so this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” she said.
Naturally, after three years of grueling performance schedules, she grew motivated for a life and career path outside the castle walls.
Vaughn drew into her bag of talent and snagged a job in another Disney-intensive area at the other end of the country, Orange County, California, where she served as Marketing Director for Global Events with a high-end athletic clothing company.
In 2017, the charms of Florida lured Vaughn back, this time to enroll at Full Sail University in Orlando, where she received a Master’s of Fine Art in Media Design.
“The curriculum teaches you to think creatively, with multimedia as your canvas,” she said. “It proved a good way to combine my skills and interests.”
During spare weekends in Orlando, Susanne would renew the passion for rowing that had ignited back in her college years. To this day, she continues to coach rowing on weekends at Sebastian River Rowing, a private club.
At the end of the workday, Vaughn goes home to Scamp, the scrappy terrier she rescued in Los Angeles.
She is pumped about the new opportunity with Space Coast Daily.
“I think it will allow me to become even more involved with the community I call home, and that is something I’ve wanted for a long time,” she said.
