Spending most of my life growing up in San Diego, California, I made my way out to Phoenix in 2013 to receive my Bachelor’s Degree at Grand Canyon University. As it turns out, Phoenix is a perfect fit for the career I am pursuing, which happens to be marketing/media management, so I now live here full-time and plan to live here for quite some time. Social PHX, LLC is a wonderful, up-and-coming company that assists small to medium companies in maintaining their social networking sites and company reputation. With plans to continue schooling at Grand Canyon University and receive a Master’s Degree in Marketing, it is great to know that I will continue to apply knowledge to my current company as well as throughout this networking group.
