What do you do at Valve+Meter?

Most days are spent compiling information for an assortment of written analyses that are then presented to potential clients. I live by the three R’s: research, recommend, repeat. Additionally, I’m one of Sunshine’s favorite fetch players and overall lover of the office pups.


Tell us about your background and experience

I graduated from Franklin College in 2014, where I majored in journalism and public relations. While there, I took on several news, social media and event planning internships. Over the years, I’ve assessed and assisted in content creation for both B2C and B2B social media trends, focusing on improving, informing and engaging on those platforms. A huge part of every job has been researching trends, brands and competitors.


What is it about you that makes you uniquely positioned to excel in your role?

One of my college’s values was ‘intellectual curiosity.’ This has been a value I’ve taken with me throughout life. I enjoy being resourceful and researching topics, events, people, etc. It’s something that has served me well in my current position as I cover various topics spanning from SEO, paid keywords, social ads, website performance, 404s, search results and more.


What are some of your interests and hobbies outside of work?

Outside of work I enjoy traveling, shopping/thrifting, photography, hanging out and traveling to see friends across the state(s) and lots of YouTube and Netflix binging.


What is one thing most people don’t know about you and would be surprised to learn?

Two things: I can do a peacock call and I lived/grew up on a Christmas tree farm since I was 3.
