DIRECTOR OF HAPPINESS
Like a horse of many colours, Lisa is a woman of many interests, most of
which relate to creativity: music, design, marketing, and beauty/fashion, to name a few. She is also interested in social interactions, and what makes people tick. This
interest prompted her to study Sociology at Brock University, not far from her small-town home in Ontario. During her studies, she focused on how the media and marketing had an influence on social ideals. Upon graduating from Brock University, Lisa returned to school for a short stint in Graphic Design at Niagara College before grabbing a one-way ticket to the bustling metropolis known as Edmonton.
Arriving in 2009, Lisa turned to social media to connect with and discover her new home. She took the leap and joined the still-newish platform Twitter, and never looked back. Lisa fell in love with the sense of community, the breaking news, hilarious animal gifs, and meeting many incredible people over the years – including MarketingRx founder, Kimberly Allison!
When not browsing social media platforms, Lisa can often be found enjoying some laughs with friends, slaying it at karaoke, or relaxing at home watching Netflix in her Oilers onesie.
Lisa is Social Marketing Certified, and specializes in social engagement and conversation, with a deep understanding that creating an interactive account with personality is what draws in new followers and generates brand loyalty.
Social Content Specialist
Taryn Hardes is a social content specialist at Marketing Rx. A graduate of English Literature at the University of British Columbia, Taryn’s true passion is storytelling. She has previously worked as a blogger, writer, editor, and marketer, so social media has been an exciting and natural progression! Taryn has trained on social media and inbound marketing through various conferences across the United States, and studied marketing, editorial, and publishing at New York University.
When she’s not scanning Twitter, Instagram, and the blogosphere for the newest trends in fashion, marketing, and pop culture, Taryn can be found jogging, biking, skiing, or taking a yoga class. Taryn is also an avid eater, reader, and traveller, and tends to do all three in simultaneous fashion.
Taryn specializes in content creation and still gets a rush from a particularly successful social post. She believes in the power of quality content in the social space and can’t wait to see where social media goes next.
