Elliot Volkman.  "Master of Communications by day, non-profiteer by night" and Claire Gallam Volkman "Before I was a blogger, a writer and a recipe creator, I was just a chubby kid who loved food."

Now they united in marriage to become a set of filthy and devious human beings with no regard to the life or well-being of others.  Their cult like obsession with the destruction of those beneath their hierarchy causes a weakness in their lives, forcing them to evolve lies that they will pay for in the end.  Everyone knows... Karma is a b*tch!  Their destruction, while you may think you know their character and heart, well you have NO IDEA!!!

Creating, editing, and developing content in all shapes and forms. Whether it's for social media, webinars, collateral, or producing video those are my hats.

Previous role:
My current role of community manager allows me to devote my time to the GovWin members. You can follow us on Twitter for regular updates: @GovWinteam

My daily tasks include monitoring all internal and external communities for GovWin, micro reporting from Gov 2.0 or GovCon events, creating strategic social campaigns, brand evangelism, hosting webinars, managing all social media activity, and socially promoting any and all relevant government contracting content and engaging with our members or related audience.

If you see those fun marketing messages on our feed, that is not by my hand.

In 2012 I am planning two new projects for Deltek:
1. A news brief in Web broadcast form.
2. A teaming/subcontracting webinar series with a virtual teaming event.
3. Several other projects that don't have green lights.

My overall goal is to spread the word about Deltek becoming an information solutions expert, not just a software product development company.

#1 General Comment

...another offense by the Volkmans!

AUTHOR: unsatisfied vendor - (USA)

I can't believe that when I came here to document, a frighteningly similar experience as the photographer, that I saw this.  

Elliot Volkman, shame on you, you can not treat people this way and get away with it - and only hope your wife is aware of what you are doing and not an innocent victim in all of this.

You are on a power trip, but deserve and have never earned any respect.

You are not to be trusted and I only hope that more people that you hurt come forward.

#2 REBUTTAL Individual responds

Not true what so ever

AUTHOR: claire - ()

Simply put, this is not true. Joelle, the unprofessional wedding "photographer" we initially hired was let go because she failed to do her job. She made up these excuses of a sickness and blew off a very important engagement session to us. Not only this, but she then tried to send her untrained boyfriend/friend to fill in to take our photos. After doing much research, we found other reports online saying that she was just as unprofessional to use as she was to them. 

Just like she didnt' show up to our engagement session, she even blew off a couples wedding. 

She then posted this false, completely untrue and very unprofessional rebuttal online stating we reuined her buisness by letting her go. We simply let a vendor go who did not fulfill their duties. Her emotionally abusive behaivor and false attacks even pushed us to seak legal action against her. We're still admist legal fights to get this false report removed.

#3 REBUTTAL Individual responds

Simply not true, and hilarious

AUTHOR: outofluckcharleston - (United States of America)

As much as I would like to simply ignore the four posts Joelle posted to this site about my wife and I, it's hard to do so when they frequently appear on the first page of Google results for our names.

Joelle, we hired you as our wedding photographer over two years ago, you didn't do your job, so you were fired. Writing strange things about people, especially your clients, is not exactly a proper business tactic. 

She was never a client of my wife or I, we have never actually met her, she has blamed us for her companies not doing well and keeps changing the names of them. I don't have any magical s****..
