Please join us in welcoming Samantha Ibarra to the #DreamTeam as an SEO strategist. Here’s her background, in her own words:
I grew up in Iowa and am a Midwestern girl at heart, but I’ve also lived in various Western states and spent a lot of time abroad.
When I graduated from college in 2010, I quickly figured out that my chosen degree was not where I saw myself in the long run. That’s when I knew I wanted to work my way into sales and marketing through work experience, without stacking up hefty student loans and college education. I ventured into the corporate world as a sales and marketing director with a large hotel chain. Then I took a regional management position overseeing a multi-location business within a large territory on the West Coast. I fell in love with the relationships I was able to build through marketing, sales, and management positions, and I was driven by the results I was seeing. I decided to go freelance, travel abroad, and help as many companies with my marketing skills as possible.
When I’m not working, you can find me helping my husband with our MMA gym, indulging in yoga and meditation, as well as spending quality family time with my daughter.
