Commander Marsh is the “Nagger in Chief” at Social Media Energy. As she puts it, “I’m a project manager—leading a team to move projects forward in a timely manner to the satisfaction of our clients and within their specifications and budget. I ensure that people do what they said they would do, when they said they would do it.
If that sounds sort of motherly, it should come as no surprise that for the past five years, Julie has been affiliated with Cool Mom Picks, arguably the most influential shopping and design blog for parents. She’s currently Vice President of Operations for the Brooklyn, NY-based company and, through Julie’s efforts, their Facebook fans have increased to 21,000 and their Twitter followers now stand at over 140,000. Julie also is a freelance writer, contributing columns and stories to numerous parenting websites and publications. What we’re trying to say is that Julie was immersed in social media long before coming to SME.
Prior to that, Julie honed her project management skills during stints with the U.S. Air Force and Universal Music Group in New York. She says that after working to please record label executives and military general officers, collaborating with the team at SME is a “dream!” Julie and her family live in Parker, CO. Like so many on the SME team, she values the diversity in her career and the twists and turns she has experienced professionally. “You can plan for a lot of things, but you have to be open to opportunities and not see it as a failure if you change directions.”
Also like many of her SME colleagues, she and her husband and three children are over-achievers, dabbling in triathlons and such!
Julie supports the Denver based Family Tree, a nonprofit that assists women and children who have escaped abusive situations and fosters their transition to a new life.
