Q. What’s your role at Force, and what does it entail?
I’m in a hybrid role as an SEO Strategist/Producer, so I’m involved with creating new pages and helping dealer websites rank higher on Google and other search engines.

Working with a great team and always learning something new.
Q. Tell us a little bit about yourself outside of work.

Q. What’s your dream travel destination, or favorite place you’ve ever traveled?
I probably have too many dream travel destinations to list them all here, but I’d love to go to Cuba. My favorite place I’ve ever traveled would either be Amsterdam or Barcelona.
Q. Did you have any sort of automotive background before Force?
Yes, I’ve actually done digital marketing for car dealerships before – and I still agreed to work here (so I must be at least a little crazy).

Q. Any weird talents or facts about you?
I was born on my mom’s birthday. Luckily, I wasn’t her first child.

I don’t always have a filter, so if I ever seem rude, I promise I’m not trying to be.
