What brings you here today?
Many business owners or private brands simply don’t have the time and (wo)manpower to invest into all aspects of marketing that can help them achieve their goals. I am here to help. I can provide you with sound marketing and strategic advice, as well as hands-on implementation of marketing tactics for your print, social media, or website.
Tell me what your needs are:
I’m Oana (pronounced “wanna,” like in “wanna dance?”). I’m an experienced marketer pursuing many other passions in life, such as: writing, traveling, travel and food writing, cooking food, eating food (see a pattern here?), dancing, and interesting people stories.
I was born and raised in beautiful Romania, land of Dracula, Nadia Comaneci, and sarmale (stuffed cabbage rolls – if you haven’t tasted these yet, you’re seriously missing out!). I came to the US in 1997 to study at Berea College, the #1 liberal arts college in the South and a unique private college featuring an incredible tuition-free work-study education. After graduation, I received an MBA in Marketing from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Duke’s online continuing education provided me with the latest and greatest information in Digital Media and Marketing. But honestly, some of the best lessons came from life and my hands-on experience as a marketer, writer, and traveler.
I love traveling and food, and I pursue both as much as possible, sharing my experiences with the readers of my travel blog GreatEscapetations.com (a play on words: Great Escape + Great Expectations). I muse about many things in my Thoughtfulicious.com blog. I ballroom dance and I am a proud mamma of three furry kids: two dogs and a cat.
