I am the Founder and CEO at Idea Girl Media, and am known as “the idea girl” for my enthusiasm in successfully probing creative angles to promote my causes. I have authored such pieces as, “Your 12 Step Social Strategy Blueprint,” and “Podcasting For Marketing: A Smart Content Marketing Strategy.”
Kay Frances, author of The Funny Thing About Stress, describes my technique: “She was able to take what was basically a murky concept for me and turn on the light bulb!”
My background includes more than fourteen years in international education connecting people globally and nurturing long-lasting relationships. During that time I was designated by the U.S. Department of State to manage and market cultural education experiences, working with merit-based scholarship winners and future leaders from both Eurasia and Middle Eastern regions. A peacekeeping initiative. It was my enlightened pleasure to train with a former U.S. Ambassador, and an Imam that consulted on Capitol Hill. This positions me well for social media marketing work with regulated industries.
As a veteran to the worldwide landscape, I’ve led in-depth trainings for groups outside the United States. Well-versed in engaging followers and encouraging dialogue around targeted topics, I became savvy as an early adopter of social media marketing – through email and online forums.
Some know me as a social media leader.
I help business brands and public figures achieve social media success and positive online reputation.
Some know me as an executive content strategist. Others know me as an award-winning online marketer.
My clients typically experience:
I am proud to say one of my clients achieved a multi-million dollar investment due to the amazing innovation from the leadership team and the online presence I created to showcase their work and share their brand message.
Yet others know me as a media collaborator and social media crisis consultant.
It is true that the most contentious moments can be opportunities to shine.
Some know me as a social media mentor.
“You pushed me to bring my A Game to the table in running my company in ways you will never fully grasp. You keep me motivated to do my best work every day.”
Those I have mentored have seen lucrative growth.
Aside from my own blog, you may have seen my work at:
In earlier days I was a Sprout Social All Star – a select group of influencers chosen to provide feedback about their social media management platform.
My social media marketing insights have been featured at:
As well as several other top marketing websites, and top marketing podcasts like:
I am also mentioned in the book, “Credibility Nation: For Professionals Who Want To Be Seen As Credible.”
Some know me as a community leader.
Additionally, all through my daughter’s school years, I volunteered in the classroom, on boosters’ committees and at events to foster positive evolution of our small town.
I was raised by service-oriented, determined parents who supported my interests in music, dance and international cultures. I am the daughter of an Army Captain and Vice President of Sales and Marketing for a Marriott Company, and a female entrepreneur.
My husband and I live in Wilmington, Ohio … where our daughter is a business manager and part-time realtor. Rob is a recovering elected official, having served four 2-year terms on our local City Council. We both enjoy wine tasting, as well as hydroponic gardening indoors, year-round. Each summer, we look forward to new varieties in our outdoor gardens … especially homegrown tomatoes.
Non-fat lattes, travel and quick wit make me smile, and I am always enthused to meet new people.
