Megan MarsDigital Marketing/Content Specialist
Growing up with a father who owned a small business, Megan has a strong work ethic and an appreciation for the challenges of running a business, and how design and marketing can help businesses reach their customers. So when she started working as a digital retoucher at a photography studio in 2007, she knew her role would quickly grow beyond “Photoshop Queen.”
Megan taught herself everything she could about digital marketing and building websites. Then she implemented marketing and social media campaigns that drastically improved the studio’s revenue stream. She uses her passion for design and marketing to help businesses grow and succeed.
Where she gained her knowledge
Megan grew up immersed in art, marketing and advertising and created marketing pieces and graphics for her father's business. She honed her traditional marketing, photography and design skills working at photography studios and several print shops, before working for a digital media and advertising firm that really expanded her skills towards SEO and web design. Working in small businesses and "wearing all the hats" gave her the ability to manage many different roles and skills to get the job done.
