By day, I am the Google Chrome Community Manager; by night, I churn ice cream and brew soda as one of the Co-Founders of Jilli Ice Cream and Soda.
Before Google, worked in Ogilvy's 360° Digital Influence practice as a Digital Strategist, where I focused on research-based digital strategy, online community building and management, online content development, email marketing, online influencer relations, and social media marketing for a variety of Ogilvy's clients including Ford, ASUS, and NBC.
Before Ogilvy, I ran Monster.com's social network for professional chefs, Chef's Blade. While at Chef's Blade, I grew the site by almost ten-fold; when I left, the site had 7,000 active users, received 200,000 pageviews a month, and was the largest social network for professional chefs. I grew the site through a combination of social marketing, strategic partnerships, community management/user engagement, content creation, and SEO.
Before Chef's Blade, I worked at the Center for Cultural Innovation where I developed an online advocacy and information portal to unite the artistic community of California to advocate for health care reform. The site membership doubled in size during my year managing it.
