My Story

I began my career developing websites and sales tools for the international meetings and events industry in Scottsdale, Arizona. I quickly fell in love with the amount of data Google Analytics and other reporting software provided me, and I started to optimize sites based on my findings. Soon after, I decided SEO and interactive marketing was an industry where I could really apply this experience full time, and I moved out to San Diego to start working with ThunderActive.

As Director of Search, my goal is to grow our wonderful company through clients who support our vision, partners who align with our values and technologies that enable us to be a leader in the interactive marketing space. When I’m not at work I’m burying my toes in the sand on South Mission Beach playing volleyball competitively.
