Everyone has a story. Aleshia helps businesses tell theirs. 

As a content strategist, Aleshia helps businesses communicate their impact and establish themselves  as the go-to resource in their prospective industries. From early childhood centers to multi-million dollar senior living companies, she works to infuse storytelling with various digital marketing formats, such as email marketing, website content, and social media. 

Her favorite part of being a content strategist is using educational-based content to enhance the lives of audiences. She helps companies establish thought-based leadership, thus increasing authority. 

As a writer, Aleshia helps fellow marketers and communication professionals grow by sharing her experiences through candid and information-packed articles. Her most popular articles, Stop Telling Social Media Managers Their Work Looks Fun and Recycle Your Way to Never-Ending Content in 8 Simple Steps, have been published in online publications like Better Marketing and The Startup. 

When Aleshia isn’t creating content or developing content strategies, you can find her teaching digital marketing courses at local universities, enjoying a piping cup of coconut oolong tea over a podcast, and spending time with her significant other.
