Work experience

Marketing Manager

A particular focus of mine is online marketing and social media management, especially SEO and inbound marketing techniques that blend traditional PR with content marketing. I love developing brands, running Facebook adverts, and creating email lists and sales funnels to manage potential customers. I'm also comfortable on camera and love creating video and audio content. 

Do you want Facebook ads targeting your perfect customer? Do you want clients booked out for months ahead? Talk to me. 

I'm also a freelance writer and editor, mostly sharing tips and tricks for doing things online and helping people to improve productivity with office software. I write for a number of blogs and participate in numerous online communities.

I have a degree in Internet Studies and Journalism, in which I primarily focused on social networking trends, innovations, online marketing, community management and journalism.

As an entrepreneur I have developed many of my own digital products, then sold them using my own marketing skills and preferred techniques. 

My diploma of Event Management lead me to run festivals for non-profit community groups, marketing the events, fundraising, building community, creating their websites and managing their committees.

I have also worked in call centres, mostly as a financial services officer, doing both inbound and outbound sales. I obtained a certificate qualification in finance while working in this industry. 

I have always been very technically proficient, mastering everyday office software (both Microsoft and online counterparts), AutoCAD, programming languages, and a variety of online tools. I secretly love manipulating spreadsheet data. 

Previously I worked in a number of customer service positions, including bar work, waiting and fast food service. 

I also sing professionally for many festivals and events as part of a variety of ensembles.
