Having both a Marketing and Interior Design Degree give me the ability to think both creatively and strategically for analyzing and developing marketing strategies across various media channels.  Previously managing 7 social media accounts through Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+ has given me the strong ability to multi-task and prioritize projects.

For the past three years I have been a social media marketing specialist where I set, managed and executed overall social media strategy and initiatives for multiple clients at a full-service marketing firm.  My responsibilities also included content creation and editing for blogs, email blasts, all social media channels and assist the graphic designer with the creation of marketing materials.  I also have excellent computer skills with thorough knowledge of Microsoft Office, Adobe PhotoShop, Illustrator, InDesign, Hubspot (website and content management system), Hootsuite, Constant Contact and Google Analytics.
