While full-time employment in the corporate world never allowed Margie to attend SMBMad events in person, she enjoyed the monthly event recaps and longed for an opportunity to connect with like-minded social media experts.
In 2015, Margie’s love for “all things social” prompted a career change. As a self-proclaimed friend-maker and tech geek, Margie found her digital niche in social media strategy and management.
She attended her first SMBMad event in October 2015. As you may recall, that’s the event at Wisconsin Distributing where there was no coffee and our host served impromptu beer samples!
Margie embraced the opportunity to become more involved in SMBMad and became a regular event volunteer until being asked to assume the role of SMBMad Board Secretary in October 2016. And in February of 2019, Margie was voted in as Vice President of the organization.
Margie’s favorite thing about SMBMad is networking and education opportunities. She enjoys meeting Madison’s talented social media rockstars and staying current on the latest and greatest in social media marketing.
