My name is Sonya, but I’m better known online as SocialSonya. I’ve been a marketer for many years, and have had the opportunity to work at some pretty cool places. I speak at many conferences and seminars around the country, educating folks on social media, reputation management, brand building, and more. I am an amateur photographer, and love taking pics of my travels, my dogs and food.
I am currently looking for my next challenge – hopefully back in the marketing arena. That is my passion and I’ve missed it.
Until recently, I was overseeing the business development and performance of boats.com, part of Dominion Marine Media, a division of Dominion Enterprises. I also established a Marketing Solutions team providing products and services for DMM customers, designed to generate more traffic and leads, engage with customers and build a positive reputation online.
In 2009, I finished a 5 year stint at AOL. Prior to AOL, I worked for a financial services company and an online education company. During 2009 – 2010, I started a marketing consulting agency called Wave Marketing – www.wavemarketing.biz. I loved working with clients to develop marketing strategy and plans for online and social media campaigns. I was recruited to Dominion in late 2010.
In 2010, I also founded a non-profit company, called The Geekettes Club. I formed the club to empower and inspire women through training, seminars, networking and more in the areas of technology, marketing and business.
