W/ us since June 2018
Makena is a Washington native, digital marketing enthusiast, and Paid Search Analyst at Wheelhouse DMG. She focuses her time in our Digital Advertising practice, guiding clients through the ever-changing world of paid search. In her role, she cares for her clients by assisting them from start to finish with all aspects of their paid search campaigns including elements such as implementations, reporting, and optimizations.
Makena earned her BA in Business Administration with a focus in marketing from the University of Washington. She was drawn to digital marketing because of its balance between data analytics and creativity. Over time, her goal is to continue exploring different areas of digital marketing such as paid social, display, and SEO. Before Wheelhouse, she worked as a paid search analyst for a multinational tech company.
In her spare time, Makena enjoys scoping out farmers markets, relaxing anywhere she can set up her hammock, and seeking out new experiences. She likes to try at least three new things every year.
