Paid Search Analyst
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.

Meet the rest of our team
Dallas enjoys fiddling with things and solving hard problems which is probably what makes him a great Product Engineer. When he’s not working, you can probably find Dallas reading, or periodically visiting Portland, OR.
If she’s not writing for clients’ sites as a Content Associate, Teresa might be at the dance studio or working on her Yelp Elite Status.
Joe is drawn to digital marketing out of a deep and broad interest in effective communication. As a Digital Services Manager, Joe collaborates closely with team members and clients to execute on digital strategy initiatives.
Aaron is President & Founder, and a broadly accomplished digital marketing professional. He is responsible for vision, strategy and culture. He’s still happily married to that New Zealander he met in Malaysia and they now have two wonderful daughters.
Erika is a Search Associate at Wheelhouse DMG on the SEO team. A NW native, she loves to ski, read, and run in between chauffeuring her three kids (and the family dog) to more activities than she cares to think about. She also loves Prosecco and Oreos, but not together.
Laura is Director of Digital Advertising in our Virginia office. She is a Richmond, VA native and Seattle wannabe (she’ll settle for visiting a few times a year). Laura loves keeping up with the latest paid search trends, winery tours, and any activities where she can bring her Golden Retriever, Penny.
Dallas is a Washington native and Paid Search Analyst. He is also a big fan of the values-based culture at Wheelhouse DMG and appreciates the genuine positivity that permeates the office, creating not only fantastic work for the clients but fantastic relationships, as well.
