It’s hard to put into words how grateful I am for all those that have taken a chance on me over the last 5 1/2 years, as I’ve been finding my place within the digital marketing/inbound marketing/SEO community. It’s been a whirlwind of learning, growth, and excitement, and I wouldn’t trade the experiences I’ve had or the people I’ve met for the world.
I’m especially thankful that my path has crossed with AJ Wilcox, Bart Gibby, and Nicole Bullock, all of whom I consider to be both mentors and friends. AJ, who took a chance on me when we were both working at OrangeSoda, teaching me HTML, SEO basics, and critical thinking. Bart, who instilled the value of a data driven culture into me. And Nicole, who invited me to speak by her side and join her at SMX West, both of which have opened new and exciting doors for me. But above all I’m grateful for Polson DeMott, who has provided nothing but encouragement and support.
