Tell us a bit about your experience before the Digital Marketing Institute
I obtained a bachelor's degree in Telecommunications from Penn State University, then began my professional career as a Business Development Associate at CEB, now Gartner. In this role, I conducted outreach on behalf of the organization to help generate new business.
What influenced your decision to study digital?
I did not have a lot of training in the field, and knew I would need to find opportunities to build my knowledge and skillset to move forward in this direction.

I have begun a new career as an SEO Specialist with Web Talent Marketing, a digital marketing agency in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The training and education I received from the Digital Marketing Institute have been key in acclimating to this new role and its duties.
Is there any advice you would give to new students at the Digital Marketing Institute?
Take advantage of all of the resources available to you in the online course. Collaborate with your peers in the class forum and don't be afraid to ask questions. Most of all, build upon what you have learned with Digital Marketing Institute and keep learning.
