I’ve been managing Facebook pages since the age of 13. When I was 20 years old I had graduated in a Diploma in Travel and Tourism. In the process of completing my Diploma, I had businesses approach me to manage their social media to which I then created my boutique social media marketing business – Strictly Social New Zealand. I am a self taught motivated social media marketer. 
My background includes contracting for social media channel management for Hastings District Council and Napier City Council; advising Hawke’s Bay Regional Council. To which the councils have implemented some of these strategies, including rehoming dogs in Hastings District Council and with Regional Council being the first council to live-stream council meetings.
