I'm the Director of Content at SmashFly, where I own everything from content strategy and customer stories to partner marketing and social media. I spent 5 years in digital marketing and content marketing agencies before taking my talents to the talent acquisition world. For the past 3 years, I've thrived on helping talent acquisition leaders and recruiters learn and excel in marketing tactics to bolster their recruitment marketing strategies and create more unique experiences. Personally, I like to tear through 20 books a year, and am slowly checking countries off my travel bucket list.
