My name is Alexis Smith. (But you can call me Lex!) I’m proud to have been born and raised in Detroit, Michigan.
In 2008, I graduated from The Motor City's esteemed Cass Technical High School.
I received my Bachelor of Arts in Social Computing Informatics from The University of Michigan in April 2012.
What's Informatics? That's a good question - one that took me 2.5 post-grad years behind a hotel front desk to answer.
Informatics is "the science of information and computer information systems." But that didn't give me a clue on which career path to pursue.
Interested in social media management, I quickly developed a passion for digital marketing, advertising, public relations, and branding.
I took a classes on search engine optimization and copywriting; I became Google Adwords Certified; I'm currently learning Google Analytics; and I enjoy watching 90's commercials in my free time.
In the next five years, I'd like to be a community manager or social media manager. However, I believe in dreaming BIG.
One day, I'm going to become a Chief Marketing Officer.
That's me, in a nutshell! If you like what you've read and want to know more, feel free to contact me through any of my social networks or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
