Background

Instead of doing the traditional college-after-HS route, I went on a volunteer mission to France and Switzerland for 2 years. When I returned to the USA at 21, I had no skills and contemporaries were 2 years ahead of me in their professions/education. I stumbled into SEO because of a friend who needed help on the French-speaking SEO team at Boostability. I took this knowledge and used it to coach local small business owners in Utah to sharpen the saw. I moved on to work for agencies -- here, I expanded my pillar skill of SEO outward to PPC, Email, Podcasting, CRO, and Social Media. I began consulting on the side to maintain my growth and explore my entrepreneurial spirit. Now, I work for a unicorn company as a Senior Manager and the momentum keeps rolling! All of these steps were made possible because of my micro influence on LinkedIn and other platforms! πŸ™ πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ HEY, DON’T TAKE IT FROM ME πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ I’ve had the pleasure of working with some pretty awesome brands and people in my career. Here are a few I’ve helped so you can get an idea: πŸ“± Samsung ✈️ TripAdvisor πŸ€‘ Betterment πŸ‘©β€πŸ’» Web.com πŸ€“ Ivanti πŸŽ— Blackbaud πŸ’Ύ Network Solutions
