Thanks so much for taking time to get to know me digitally. I'm way better in person. You just may catch a case of the smiles. :)
I believe in smiling and "Being joyful always" (1 Thessalonians 5:16). I believe in showing love by being active in our communities and making a positive impact everywhere we go.
I think we can offer the world insight and thoughtful communication if we really wanted. And since it's not in my personality to keep quiet, writing is my way of using my voice for good. I want to save the world, one person at a time, one task at a time, one smile at a time. Will I ever do it? No. I'm realistic and know that the sad reality is that I can never really save the world. But I can use Smiles and Rants to try anyway because in the end, making one person feel good is enough to encourage a dominio effect that will impact many.
Professionally, I am an online marketer specializing in SEO and Social Media. I'm active on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. I have a BA in English from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. I minored in Speech Communication. I have an MBA and currently in school, pursuing my Doctorate in Business Administration. Check out Dr. Smiling Marketress for more on that adventure. I am a workaholic, but at the moment, that suits me just fine. I love what I do and that's just all there is to that :).
On a personal level, I'm from Southern Illinois. I currently live in Atlanta and love it so far. I came to the United States 23 years ago from Romania. I was four. I still speak Romanian and love making Romanian dishes. Everything else you want to know you can figure out by reading my blogs.
Thanks again for stopping by!
