Hi, I’m Valerie!
If you’ve come to learn about social media marketing, running a small biz and everything in between, you’re in the right place! I want to help you DIY your own social media marketing & help you understand the in’s & out’s of social media for positive ROI results.
A LITTLE ABOUT ME
I’m a Social Media Consultant and Visual Content Creator from San Francisco, currently based in Portland, OR. specializing in Creative Direction, Social Strategy & Content Marketing. I help solo-entrepreneurs and small business owners tell their story while building their community on social.
I can’t think of anything more fulfilling than social media and sharing insight on brand growth through it. After working for myself for a decade now, reading more “find your passion” books and podcasts than I’d like to admit; and assuring my parents that, yes, I really do have a real job even though I don't go into a traditional office, I’m starting to come to terms with the fact that I’m only really great at three things: brand building, getting it out into the world, and building community.
Through my wellness blog and social influence, I discovered a love for content creation — both written and visual — collaborating with local and national brands. I believe in the power of social media and beautiful content to exponentially increase opportunity for brands, big and small. Combining my background in entrepreneurship and expertise in digital & social media marketing, I want to help you streamline your social media marketing efforts.
In 2007, I graduated with a BS in Merchandise Marketing from FIDM in San Francisco. That may seem like centuries ago in internet years, but don’t worry, I’m on top of all the new tricks and trends when it comes to the world of Digital and Social Media.
My work has appeared in The Huffington Post - Taste, Blisstree, Well+Good, Shape, Food & Wine Magazine, Bon Appétit Magazine and even on The Doctor's TV program.
