I combine a natural affinity for personal branding, social networking, education and community organizing with professional training in SEO.  I have worked with large brands on national campaigns and can measure traffic and ROI, but my strength is in understanding community dynamics and applying the best online practices for maximum search engine optimization.   I prefer to assist businesses whose strategy is a natural passion to connect with their customers, rather than one focusing on ROI.
