Behind Digital Career Girl

[about me]

I am an Irvine girl at heart.  I can appreciate perfectly manicured lawns and beautifully designed shopping centers.  Growing up, weekends were spent in Newport and Laguna, mostly sunbathing, exploring coves and watching my older brother skim board. In September of 2008, I moved to Austin, TX–what an awesome city! But after about a year or so I was itching for the coast. So I packed my bags and moved back on my own at age 19. I landed in Dana Point soon after and haven’t left since.

[School + Work]

During my undergrad at California State University, Long Beach, I began interning as a Social Media Manager at a local Laguna Marketing Agency. It’s there where I developed a deep passion and desire to learn everything I could about the world of online marketing. After graduation, I landed a position that was GREAT on paper but left me extremely unsatisfied as I realized how daunting a 9 to 5 can be. I didn’t like the conformity of rush hour traffic and the amount of time this job was sucking out of my life. I knew there was something else for me and that’s when I tapped into the world of blogging.

The launch of Digital Career Girl in 2016 was a breath of fresh air for me. My blog gave the work I do more purpose. This is a space where I share my knowledge of digital marketing, motivation to break out of the norm, and most importantly a space to share actionable tips for small business owner and entrepreneurs alike.

I talk about:

SEO (search engine optimization)


social media


and any topic that supports those initiatives.
