Hi, I'm Stephanie.
I am an online marketer, gamer, and geek. I love the intersection of words, numbers, and marketing strategy.
I live in Portland now, but I'm originally from Mankato, Minnesota. I've lived in Boston, London, Seattle, and Philly, too.
If you'd like to get in touch with me about consulting on market research, survey design, or data analysis, check out my services page.

I work in SEO and Public Relations.
My specialty is data-driven online marketing. I use analytics to understand audiences and cater communications (blog content, email campaigns, social media, etc.) to meet their needs. SEO helps me get this content found via search engines, and PR helps me distribute it among influencers.
My complete resume is below. You can also find me on LinkedIn.
