I've always been a little bit nerdy. I can't even tell you how much I love Excel and how many late nights and weekends I've spent teaching myself how to build websites, just for fun. I have spent a lot of free time over the years designing websites, writing content, managing social media channels and helping develop marketing strategies for friends, family, and colleagues. It makes me so happy to help small, local businesses and I continue to be inspired by their passion and creativity. It's what I live for. I live to be inspired. I've realised the my happiest times are my most creative ones and the times I make those around me laugh or inspired.
I want to help local businesses thrive, seriously, shop local people.
I draw on nearly a decade of digital experience. A self-taught 'Jill of all trades' who's dabbled in education, insurance, human resources, cosmetics, manufacturing and design. I have created The Localist to help small, local businesses get their stories heard. It's their stories that make our communities so unique and special. From ideating and advice to site setup, content and social media help and event promotion, there is no project too small! I believe in creating content that helps and inspires others to do better and to be better. I am here to help you and your business at a price that won't break the bank.
I can offer:
- web design services
- social media management
- content marketing
- digital marketing (analytics, paid search, SEO)
- General ideas, advice, brainstorming, random project help!
My Background and Credentials...
I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona and have acquired a love for hiking, Arizona sunsets, photography and traveling. While traveling through South America in 2013, I met a boy from The Central Coast of NSW in Australia and decided to make the big move in September 2014. Now, we live in Caves Beach with our hyper dog Molly (I freakin' love that dog to death). It didn't take long for me to fall completely in love with the Australian lifestyle and culture; I think I might have to stay!
I currently work as a Digital Marketing Coordinator at The University of Newcastle. I received my Bachelor of Business Administration - Major in Marketing, Minor in Writing from the University of Arizona. I am also a Hootsuite Certified Professional and Inbound Marketing Certified through the HubSpot Academy. For more info, please visit my LinkedIn profile.
