I have worked in the service industry as a server, bartender, and assistant restaurant manager. During my five years working at Olive Garden, I became aware of how even large, successful corporations do not reach their full potential when it comes to using their digital marketing resources. Seeing this opportunity made me passionate about the field of digital marketing and eager to gain the tools to make an impact on the success of businesses.
Shortly after beginning my master’s degree at Temple University, I was given an internship opportunity at Dastmalchi in Newport Beach, a company that owns several beauty, lifestyle, and wellness brands and is responsible for all their brands’ marketing. My responsibilities encompass many aspects of influencer marketing and all facets of social media marketing. This company started in 2010, and has been growing exponentially every year since.
