- Adopting SocialSEO and SMM Consulting, 2012 - presentI help others use the internet to harness the power for good. Preferably related to adoption since I am REALLY REALLY good with adoption and the internet, but as long as one is not a soulless corporate sucking vampire, I'm usually open to a conversation.
- DragonSeach MarketingDirector of Social Media & Adoption Blogger: SEO, copywriting, personal and coprorate blogging and consulting, SMO queen, 2008 - 2012I got a job very serendipitously because I blogged. There was no twitter and facebook had not yet exploded to take over the world. Then they did and I was the Director of Social Media. I started some huge FB pages for brands. I ran contests. I learned a whole lot.. it was better than college. But I was a community person visiting the world of marketing and I felt my soul begin to rot. So I left the corporate world to be poor among the voiceless. It's better this way.

It was great fun for a long time, but then.. working with people whose biggest issue is that the paint might be a shade too dark, or there was a knot hole in their woodwork got old and started feeling shallow. So now I just live in a beautifully designed house and everyone else is out of luck!
