Having used proven marketing methods to increase brand awareness and increase brand visibility in the marketplace, I feel I am a qualified candidate for a company seeking a marketing specialist. I have also leveraged contacts in the media by providing them with great story opportunities for them which resulted in coverage from both national and local media of specific stories. ESPN, ABC, NBC, the Orange County Register, The Los Angeles Times are among the news outlets that I have worked with. Additionally, I have managed all media needs of local and national outlets and have successfully pitched stories to them that have been covered. I have also managed a portfolio of all the media coverage we received as a result of the efforts above along with a weekly newsletter that was distributed to all of our stakeholders. While in the marketing and communications manager position at Orange Lutheran High School maximized our social media presence by increasing our audience over 700% in just over a year’s time through the implementation and execution of strategies and trainings that resulted in our success.
