Scott Merilatt

Director of Digital Strategy

W/ since November 2014
Pronouns: He/him

Professional Path

Scott is the Director of Digital Strategy at Wheelhouse DMG. He started with the company in 2014 as a content writer and now manages the Digital Strategy team — the “engine room” of the SEO practice, responsible for delivering ongoing SEO work, audits, content gap analysis, outreach, content creation, and more. Scott also provides direct strategic recommendations to organizations with multiple sites in their online ecosystem. Before Wheelhouse, Scott worked as a content specialist and digital marketer at a variety of Seattle-area tech companies, including Amazon, Cobalt, and Marchex.

Personal Passions

Scott was born and raised in the Seattle area and lives in Ballard with his wife and son. His stereotypical interests include coffee (to a fault), writing, reading, baseball, trees, and beer. But he also has a deep appreciation for classical music, British comedy, Eritrean cuisine, and his 40-minute walks to work every morning.

Meet the rest of our team

Dustin is our Principal Engineer and brings 16 years of full-stack development experience to the team. When not helping engineer solutions for our partners, he enjoys spending time with his family and performing in local theater — a true “acting professional”.

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.

Dana is an ultra-marathoner with a love for dogs and exploring. She’s also an Enterprise Team Lead focused on developing her team and helping clients expand their SEO reach.

Christina is always curious about how customers connect with brands which makes her perfect for her UX and SEO-focused role at Wheelhouse. When she’s not at work, she probably on a trip, planning a trip, or checking out some new, delicious Seattle eatery.

Trenton loves anything thrill-seeking, nerdy, or related to data analytics. He also enjoys being a Digital Strategist and helping clients achieve business initiatives.

Natalie specializes in Technical SEO and Conversion Rate Optimization. She’s the eyes and ears on the clients’ sites. When she’s not recommending site structure improvements, she’s probably visiting another Seattle brewery or exploring the Pacific Northwest.

Erika is a Client Experience Manager. 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.

When she’s not crafting winning digital strategies for our clients, Teresa might be at the dance studio or working on her Yelp Elite Status.
