SEO Strategist

Jamila is a content-driven SEO Strategist with experience working both in-house and agency-side across many different verticals, with a focus on hospitality, higher education and healthcare. She discovered her passion for all things digital during her time as a Search & Affiliate Marketing Intern with Choice Hotels International, where she fell in love with the fast-paced, constantly evolving world of SEO. Jamila has a solid background in all aspects of customer service, including client-facing roles with direct account and relationship management. She is in her element when she is managing multiple projects, collaborating with internal and external stakeholders to successfully implement strategy and execution of deliverables.

Originally hailing from a little island near Seattle (shoutout Vashon!), Jamila opted to trade the rainy PNW for Arizona sunshine, and has called the desert ‘home’ for the last 10 years. Jamila began her Marketing education at Scottsdale Community College, where she was actively involved in Collegiate DECA – serving as Chapter President, and competing in the Fashion Merchandising & Marketing individual case study competitive event, where she placed 2nd nationally in 2016. Recognizing the impact her time as a DECA member has had on her education and career, Jamila gives back as a volunteer at state conferences and events. Jamila will be graduating in May with a B.S. in Political Science and Minor in Business from Arizona State University.

A lover of groovy beats, great food, and collecting passport stamps – Jamila spends her time out of the office exploring new places, restaurants and cuisines, and checking out a show or music festival. At home, she can be found cooking elaborate meals with her boyfriend, or cuddling up to watch a movie with our two rescue pups, Benjamin and Hunter.
