Meet The Team…


A longtime restaurant and food enthusiast, Gaye Lynn Maddalena developed UniqueChatter aka Berkeley Independent Group (BIG) using her talent and experience: marketing, customer service, branding, event planning, social media, content marketing … She was born with a marketing and operations gene!

As a marketing consultant, Gaye Lynn inspires and challenges her clients. Spending most of her career in hospitality sales and marketing (fine dining restaurants, boutique hotels and gourmet grocery), Gaye Lynn readily establishes a connection to people and real issues through her honest, open, and enthusiastic style. Her marketing approach is practical and results-oriented, providing clients with clear return-on-investment and measurable success.

Now living in NorthWest Denver, with her husband and two German Shepherd Dogs, Gaye Lynn has reconfirmed her love and support of local business. Rarely visiting “big box” and “chain” operations, she is most gratified participating in the growth and prosperity of the local economy.  



Betsy Joye Murdoch discovered her passion for marketing and social media while attending Oakland University in Metro-Detroit.  With her agency, consultant and in-house marketing experience, she knows what it takes to engage and cultivate a digital presence for any brand (be it big or small).

Betsy is a firm believer in local, small business and their power within a community.  Her involvement in many local area organizations and “marketing specific” groups, gives her a lead advantage on evolving a successful marketing plan.

When not working, Betsy is most always spending time with her German Shepherd or riding her road bike.  Betsy enjoys staying up to date with the latest and greatest of dining establishments, with a new fondness for  “pop-up” dining.
