After graduating from East Carolina University with a B.A. in History in 2011, I started a social media consulting business. My clients included nonprofits and small businesses in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. My mission was help these small businesses drive brand development, website traffic growth, and establish a broad web presence with social media.
In addition to helping these small businesses build their social media presence, I also worked hard to establish my personal brand through social media. I participated in weekly Twitter Chats, studied social media blogs to learn the latest social media industry trends, and connected with industry leaders through my social media community – Twitter and LinkedIn to build my professional network and social footprint.
I am currently working for a financial publisher in Baltimore, Maryland. I am responsible for managing the company’s social media presence. In addition to working full time, I currently at Drexel University. I am working towards my Master’s in Communication.
