I also have a storied career as a social media marketer, managing online efforts for companies through start-up, marketing agency, and B2B consulting firm work environments. In these full-time roles, I have developed expertise in all areas of social media marketing, having developed and executed comprehensive social media strategies for a number of organizations (Kenmore, Craftsman, Head & Shoulders, New Balance, Kraft, Corona, Pacifico, LiftMaster, P&G, Omron, Subway, Nuveen Investments) across a variety of industries from concept to execution, and having trained hundreds of colleagues on optimizing their digital brands.
