👋 Hi, I'm Brittany Leaning.
I'm a marketer with a specialization in social media and content marketing.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Marketing from Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont. After graduating in 2012, I made the short trek down to Cambridge, Massachusetts to work for HubSpot. I started as a social media intern and quickly moved into a full-time role where I single handedly managed the company's entire social media presence. At the time, HubSpot had 1.5 million social media followers across 10+ social networks.
After two years as HubSpot's Social Media Manager, I moved over to the Content Team where I spent my days conceptualizing, researching, writing, editing, formatting, designing, packaging, project managing, and measuring the success of our long-form marketing content. In this role as a Content Marketing Strategist, I even had the pleasure of working from our Dublin, Ireland office for three months. This gave me the opportunity to learn from our global marketers and determine how we should scale and localize our content moving forward.
The past four and a half years at HubSpot were awe-inspiring and filled with explosive growth. I witnessed the company move from private to public. From 300 employees to 1,700 employees. From one floor in a single building in Cambridge, MA to a global company with multiple offices around the world. I couldn't have asked for a better company or a better group of people to learn from in my early years as a professional marketer.
Today, you can find me working in various coffee shops around Austin, Texas as a full-time freelance marketer. Please send me an email or connect with me on Twitter & LinkedIn if you'd like book me for a marketing project or learn more about what I do.
