Christine received her Bachelor's degree in Economics from Michigan State University in 2008. Shortly thereafter, she packed her life into a Ford Focus and drove to New Orleans, spending the next three years working in non-profit Community Development, managing federal and state Grant funds to assist low income families return home after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
In January 2012, Christine made a big career move into Online Marketing, joining the team at a full-service firm where she developed and managed custom online strategies for businesses, including SEM, SEO, Social Media, brand management, and website design/development.
In September 2012, the Firm downsized the Online Marketing Department and Christine was laid off. She found opportunity in an otherwise devastating situation, and took her strengths in Paid Search Management and began working as a Freelance Search Engine Marketing Consultant. She has developed and independently managed several Paid Search Campaigns with small and medium scale budgets. Google AdWords, Analytics, Webmaster Tools, conversion tracking and ROI calculations are second nature to her. She is on track to receive her Google AdWords Certification soon.
Christine is exceptionally organized with excellent communication and social skills, both verbal and written. She is friendly, professional, hardworking, dependable, and have a positive attitude. She is a self-starter, a critical thinker and goal-focused, and an outstanding addition to any team.
