  • 2. The  Uprising  of  Guerilla  Goodness      BOOM  BOOM!  CO-­‐FOUNDER  BIOS       Mary  Beth  Campbell:  Co-­‐Founder  &  CRO*     Co-­‐founder  Mary  Beth  is,  among  other  things,  a  former  high  school  English   teacher,  a  self  confessed  “reformed  cynic”  and  Boom  Boom!  Revolution’s   *Chief  Revolutionary  Officer.  Genuinely  passionate  about  making  the  world   a  better  place,  her  far  reaching  talents,  which  include  a  love  of  singing  and  a   nearly  limitless  supply  of  exciting  new  creative  concepts,  are  only   superseded  by  her  personal  standards  of  excellence.         An  exceptional  and  inspirational  high  school  English  teacher  in  her  former  life,  Mary  Beth  also  ran  an  award-­‐winning  high  school  journalism  program.  Fueled  by  the  inspiration  she  found  in  students,  Mary  Beth  exchanged  her  jaded  worldview  for  a  lifelong  commitment  to  uncovering  the  innate  good  that  hides  within  all  of  us.  Learning  from  her  students  that  true  honor  lies  in  being  the  best  for  the  world,  rather  than  the  best  in  the  world,  Mary  Beth  left  the  classroom  to  deliver  that  message  to  students  and  educators  throughout  the  US  and  Canada.  As  a  trainer  for  the  highly  respected  middle  and  high  school  transition  programs  Link  Crew  and  WEB,  she  has  helped  create  positive  change  in  countless  schools.      Additionally,  Mary  Beth,  along  with  artist  Hélène  Scott,  created  and  launched  the  re-­‐branding  campaign  for  Link  Crew,  WEB  and  Mary  Beth’s  company,  the  Boomerang  Project.  After  years  of  success  working  together  for  the  Boomerang  Project,  in  2007  the  women  decided  to  combine  their  creative  forces  and  co-­‐founded  Boom  Boom!  Revolution.  The  company’s  goal:  to  take  the  Boomerang  Project’s  message  and  deliver  it  the  world  outside  of  education  through  clever,  well  designed  and  unique  consumer  products.         Hélène  Scott:  Co-­‐Founder  &  Creative  Instigator   Hélène  is  a  seasoned  Creative  Director  and  Graphic  Designer  with  extensive   experience  in  creating  successful  branding,  corporate  identity,  marketing   materials,  and  web  site  designs  for  start-­‐up  companies.       Prior  to  co-­‐  founding  Boom  Boom!  Revolution  with  Mary  Beth,  her  client   portfolio  included  corporations  such  as  Hewlett-­‐Packard,  Palm,  Apple,  Cisco   and  Google,  trade  shows,  large  scale  and  traveling  exhibits  for  museums  and   universities,  and  permanent  donor  installations  at  hospitals.  Hélène’s  early   training  and  experience  in  oil  and  acrylic  painting,  photography,  and  motion  graphics  and  animation,  paved  the  way  for  the  unique  digital  illustrations  that  are  depicted  in  Boom  Boom!  Cards.
