LinkedIn Profile

The communication gap between Sales, Marketing, and IT is where many business owners struggle to build their online brand. My experience in client sales and digital marketing across a variety of industries – including implementing HubSpot into a global B2B SaaS portfolio management firm, developing market sales strategies for Google products and services for a Silicon Valley tech startup, and SEO & PPC remarketing campaigns for a PC hardware systems integrator – has given me insight into helping companies realize the full potential of their online marketing efforts.
