Julie Kingsley is the Senior Vice President at bizzieMe™. Her background includes almost twenty years in education and an extensive experience with social media marketing. She lives in South Portland, Maine with her husband and two children.

Emily Bernhard has produced, directed and written documentaries for a broad range of clients including National Geographic, PBS, History, and NOVA scienceNow!. Her documentaries have won a number of awards including the Telly, two Cine Golden Eagles, the Science Journalists Award and a Boston/New England Emmy.

bizzieMe is creating branded digital games and activities for kids to use while they wait. Using a patent-pending digital platform, bizzieMe provides a relatively low-cost way for companies to engage and entertain kids with their brand.

Once the bizzieMe app is downloaded onto a mobile device, using geo-location technology, kids can access different branded content as they travel from place to place.

So, imagine you start your day with your daughter at the coffee shop. She opens the bizzieMe app on your family tablet and plays games and activities that teach her all about coffee, how it’s roasted, the countries where it’s grown and the people who live there. Then, maybe you go to a dentist’s office and she takes a virtual tour of her mouth through her bizzieMe app. Now she knows where plaque comes from and plays a digital flossing game while she waits for her appointment. Next, over lunch at a Mexican restaurant, you and your daughter use bizzieMe to play dots and blocks, learn about Mexican art and culture, and then create a drawing that you post on Facebook, or email to grandma. That afternoon, while waiting for dad’s flight to arrive at the airport, she uses bizzieMe to learn about flight – how lift happens, how planes are constructed, and why weather is important – all while playing digital games.

bizzieMe will be available in thousands of locations where all kinds of branded content will spark curiosity, create brand loyalty and enable users to engage in the world around them.
Founded and located in Portland, Maine, bizzieMe is a start-up digital media firm that is using patent-pending technology to help businesses stay relevant in the 21st century. By providing branded, educational and entertaining games and activities for venues as diverse as restaurants, hotels, hospitals, and airports, bizzieMe creates a great consumer experience, builds brand loyalty and boosts consumer advocacy.


Julie Bee’s was established after the company's founder, Julie Brown, was unable to find sustainable, fashion-forward shoes to wear to work and out with friends. She discovered that too many shoes today are made with little regard to the environment and the long-term effects on our communities.

We at Julie Bee’s believe that there is a better way to conduct business and create fabulous shoes. Our shoes are constructed with ecologically sustainable leathers and vintage pieces, providing a delightful visual and stylish appeal. Furthermore, Julie Bee’s footwear is handcrafted in America, which helps to reduce carbon emissions and support an employee friendly working environment while at the same time utilizing sustainable Italian leathers and processes.

The end results are stylish, fashionable,eco-friendly shoes made in the USA for the fashion- and environmentally-conscious. Try on a pair of Julie Bee's shoes today and you'll see how easy it is to benefit both your community and the environment - and look good doing it.
