I got it covered.
Besides being a self proclaimed “geek” and social media fanatic, I am working in a challenging, community focused position as Store Manager and Fine Art Photographer with Thru the Lens in Durango, CO.
As Marketing Coordinator for the Greeley Stampede I managed and implemented a $1M marketing budget for concerts, rodeos, carnival and other associated attractions and events. I was also responsible for media relations and community engagement.
Ramping up year-round social media and internet presence is a key marketing component to an increase in ticket sales, attendance and reach. As Director of the Minturn Community Fund, I managed and produced forty-two successful event fundraising projects for this community-focused, non-profit organization. I fostered positive community partnerships and sponsors. I also managed and produced online, print and radio advertising and marketing efforts including press releases, blogging, social media, website creation, weekly newsletters, monthly postcards, brochures, posters, yard signs, newsletters, event signage and overall graphic design.
I have also had the opportunity to showcase my creativity and leadership by working as a director for a national social media marketing company. I developed social marketing campaigns for local and national businesses, created brand awareness through e-newsletters and blogs, and used my graphic design and photography skills for advertising. I am also a Constant Contact, certified ALE (email marketing Authorized Local Expert) and seasoned public speaker.
I have over ten years experience as a trainer and have traveled around Colorado to give presentations to organizations on Internet marketing. I also have fifteen years of customer service experience, which includes ten years project management and personnel supervising.
I was featured in the Greeley Tribune, Greeley Unexpected, and Downtown Greeley newsletter for organizing a Greeley walk for the 8th Annual Worldwide Photo Walk. I also volunteered my Webmaster skills to the Greeley Chamber of Commerce and updated their website weekly.
My husband and I relocated to Durango in 2017. After being associated with the military for over ten years, we’ve planted roots in beautiful Colorado.
