Laura Berry, principal
Her professional social media work began earlier this year with contract work for a New York startup. In the first six months she generated more than 8,000 tweets, attracted 1,000 followers, and reached a Klout score of 51, which is about 85th percentile. She was also named Social Media Coordinator for womenonbusiness.com.
Laura has 13 years experience with Palo Alto Software (Eugene OR) in multiple roles including sales, customer service, customer support, and assistant to CFO. What started as business plan consulting in the 1980s became business plan software and moved to Eugene in 1992. What started as a nerdy MBA consulting business became a major multi-million-dollar family business selling directly to consumers and mostly over the web. She was always the best in the company at dealing with the rare unhappy and unreasonable customer.
She is a dean’s-list graduate of the University of Notre Dame (the one in South Bend IN with the Golden Dome) with a BA double-degree BA in Spanish and Education; and she holds an MA from the University of Oregon in Education. She is also a single mom with one son. She was born in Mexico City, and is completely bilingual with English and Spanish.
Why work with Laura for social media? Because you can trust her experience, maturity, and common sense. She’s not a social media guru. She doesn’t write articles or give workshops. But she understands how to manage your persona intelligently. She understands how to make your persona respectful and appropriate. You will be in good hands.
