WHAT DO YOU DO?
WHAT STEPS DID YOU TAKE TO GET TO WHERE YOU ARE NOW?
My passion for social media started when I produced a weekly social media segment on my college news program. Once I graduated, I began working at The Agency of the Performing Arts as a social media manager. My clients consisted of actresses, musicians, beauty influencers and food bloggers. One of my favorite clients was managing social accounts for television shows on The Audience Network. My newfound love for television led me to my next job as a Social Producer at CBS Interactive.
How do you stand out in your field?
I am very efficient when creating content calendars and know how to build accounts. My current accounts are up year over year in engagement and impressions. At my previous job my clients grew substantially each month, and I specialized in growing smaller accounts. I started one account and grew it to have 12k Instagram followers in just 5 months.
WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON RIGHT NOW?
I currently work at CBS Interactive managing Daytime show accounts. I go to set and create content along with managing the social calendars for various shows.
WHAT'S YOUR STYLE/PERSPECTIVE/TASTE? DO YOU HAVE A PROJECT THAT REPRESENTS THIS?
I always like a very clean look when it comes to social with high quality content. I have more of a fun side when it comes to copy and like everything to be upbeat. My social portfolio is available upon request.
WE ARE ALL SLASHIES WITH MULTIPLE SKILLS, WHICH ONE DO YOU WISH YOU COULD DO MORE OFTEN?
Graphic Design - I would love to produce the graphics for my social accounts.
WHAT IS FRUSTRATING YOU RIGHT NOW?
While I love working in television, I would also love to work on more beauty and lifestyle brand accounts.
IF YOU COULD HIRE SOMEONE FOR $20/HR, WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE THEM DO TO MAKE YOUR DAY EASIER?
A coordinator to community manage and manually post the content I strategize.
LET'S BRING OUT THE TIME MACHINE. WHAT DO YOU WISH YOU COULD HAVE TOLD YOURSELF, WHEN, AND WHY?
When I first started as a digital media intern in college, I would tell myself to take more risks and break out my creativity.
IF YOU COULD TALK TO AN EXPERT TO GAIN MORE INSIGHT ON SOMETHING, WHAT WOULD IT BE ABOUT?
SEO - I would love to know more about this so I can be a well-rounded expert in digital media.
WHAT KIND OF OPPORTUNITIES/PROJECTS ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
Freelance social media jobs.
DESCRIBE YOUR IDEAL JOB/CLIENT/COLLABORATION.
I would love to work with beauty and lifestyle brands and manage their social accounts.
