From humble beginnings…
From an EMT to a marketing professional is a big jump, but that is where I started. Marketing was never once something that jumped out and said “Pick Me”. In fact, I never really liked people so I never in a million years though I would do something daily that relies on humans to make it work, but that’s what ended up making me the happiest and so I pursued it.
My love for marketing started while working at Barnes Realty. I started as a lowly web developer. I was in charge of updating their website. This included making new webpages, redesigning their website, getting rid of virus infested pages, etc. A couple of years into working for them, the Advertising Manager was let go and I was asked to take over all of the advertising efforts. This included everything from newspaper advertisements to newsletters, as well as my original position as a web developer. A year after that, Barnes Realty decided a face lift was needed on the website. Since I was so busy, they hired a designer to update the site. This designer thought a WordPress website was the way to go for the business, which I agreed. Then, the designer and I took off and created a site for Barnes Realty using WordPress as the platform. I saw first hand what it takes to build one and caught on quickly. I have been working with them since.
