img_2397Hello, I’m Debbie. I’m a thrifty and creative digital marketing pro. I thrive when I’m creating engaging social media posts and developing meaningful strategies.

Currently, I’m doing email and social media marketing for The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine.

Previously I was the digital marketing and social media expert for MedVet, a network of emergency and specialty hospitals for pets.
Before that, I was at the non-profit Volunteers of America Ohio & Indiana. I love learning about donor-centric communications, fundraising strategies and how non-profits can best leverage the power of social media. In my job, I like the variety of areas of marketing I get to do: Social media, Blog writing, email marketing, analytics, content strategy, website redesign, community management, and graphic design. It’s a wide range.

I think marketing should be real, focused on human behavior. I also think marketing can be done affordably with a little creativity and elbow grease.

You have a life outside of work? 
I love humor and puns. When I can create a clever punny social media post that others enjoy, I feel awesome.  On my personal Instagram, I mostly follow dogs, especially Corgis and Bernese Mountain Dogs.  Favorite TV shows are Saturday Night Live, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Parks and Rec. Clearly, I like to laugh. And, I need energy to laugh so I’m utterly addicted to coffee.

I hope you’ll click around and learn more about me through my blog and portfolio.
