ABOUT ME

Hi there, I’m Alisha.

I grew up in a small farm town in Oregon, and am currently residing in Portland. I’m a “people person” to the core, and I spend much of my day connecting with others. Professionally, I run the digital marketing program at Hanna Andersson.

In my current role, I’m responsible for managing our paid and natural search programs, email marketing, display and retargeting, digital prospecting, social advertising, influencer marketing, and affiliate network. I also frequently contribute to various eCommerce projects. I work with a hugely talented group of people both internally and at our agencies and technology partners.

EDUCATION:

After attending courses in the Design Management program at the Art Institute of Portland for a year, I transferred to Portland State University where I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing.  While at Portland State, I focused my curriculum on new customer acquisition programs and retention strategies.

Apart from formal education, I continue to research new trends, technologies, and trades on a daily basis and love to be one of the first to know what’s happening around me.  Click here to download my résumé.

RARELY KNOWN TIDBITS:

  • I am a die-hard skier.
  • I love rap music.
  • I am possibly the world’s worst dancer… think injured giraffe.
  • I took a year off after high school to buy and flip a house. I still dabble in real estate investments.
  • I went skydiving for the first time on my 25th birthday.  I plan to celebrate the rest of my birthdays in the same way.
  • I am a self-proclaimed wine connoisseur.
  • I am a (mostly) natural blonde.
  • I used to model professionally.  Now, it’s more of a hobby.
  • I have an unhealthy relationship with my pug, Lucy.
  • I spent a great deal of my teenage years in Canada.  When you put me around Canadians, you will hear the accent come out in full force.
  • I’ve come uncomfortably close to dying…twice.
  • My biggest vice is Diet Coke.
  • I love to read.  So far, my favorite book is A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.
  • I go on a lot of adventures.  Most recently, I went on a road trip to the Steens Mountain and Alvord Hotsprings for no other reason than it was a cool place to visit.
  • I’ve been riding horses since before I could walk. It’s what I do when I need to get away.
  • During college football season, you can often find me in Eugene.
  • I made a human and he’s the coolest guy I know.
