Domestic SEO Lead
2011 - 2015 — 4 years
While at Covario and later iProspect (they purchased Covario) I spent my time working with Enterprise SEO clients in the form of the Internet Retailer 500 and Fortune 50. While each client and project was different my focus was often on the education of internal resources and leadership, technical SEO support, large and complex site migrations, and other hurdles to optimize sites effectively for users and search engines.
Online Marketing Manager
2007 - 2011 — 4 years
My responsibilities included almost everything online except for email marketing and PR related activities. I was often managing internal and external teams for web development, link building, and content creation. I had my hands in most 3rd party lead generation, CRO for SEO and PPC, online reputation management and more all while driving 30% organic leads year over year for 4 straight years.
