Greetings! Thank you for visiting my blog. My name is AnnMarie, and I’m a strategy-driven marketing professional, team player, and problem solver with the ability to come up with creative solutions. I’m fascinated by how to simplify the complex in marketing and branding using social and digital media. This blog is, primarily, a reflection of my curiosity about how to help brands and organizations form lasting relationships with customers, volunteers, and donors via social and digital media platforms. I’m also a wife, mom, avid reader and sometimes writer, and I have a secret desire to someday be a polyglot. When not online (and often in conjunction with being) you can find me cheering on my favorite sports teams.
While I was not an early adopter of the social media phenomenon like folks like Gary Vaynerchuk, once I joined the social media party, I became one of the most enthusiastic participants. Now I’m the host! As a professional, I think it’s always important to keep learning in this field. The landscape is always changing, but many key concepts are lasting.
Currently, I am working directly with non-profit organizations, helping them tell their story in this digital world.

Doug Prusak, Manager, Production & Programming, Good Life TV45
“AnnMarie is one of those extraordinary individuals with an eye for detail, and isn’t satisfied unless she’s given 100 percent to a project. As a student in my graduate course, Introduction to Multimedia Communications, she consistently turned in stellar work with solid viewpoints; presented new, interesting information in a well-written format; followed instructions; and never missed a deadline. She sets the bar high for herself in all she does, and not only reaches that bar, but ensures that she soars above it with her dedication to the task at hand. She is the epitome of what a graduate student is: conscientious, able to accept feedback and improve, and focused. These skills will transfer over to anything she does post-graduate school. I highly recommend AnnMarie for any role.”

AnnMarie is very proactive, responsible, organized, very good at attention to detail, and a very positive person to work with. Working with her was very pleasant because of her good character and her desire to cooperate. She was always available and willing to give that extra mile.
