Looking for answers on the internet? Social Media. Online Content. A dialogue about what you need to flourish – JDi wants to listen and share so Madeline Gutierrez is one of our newest team members.
Madeline Gutierrez is a communicator. A graduate from Florida State with a bachelor in Communications, and then a master in design from Pratt Institute, Madeline feels people should use as many methods – such as visual, written, spoken – to connect with others as possible. It is no surprise that she is an avid advocate of social media. “Even back in the days before Facebook, I still had a motto, ‘You can never have too many friends,’” she says.
Madeline has a strong background in teaching, gathering experience at the Board of Education in New York City as well as at the college level. “Today I find myself teaching people how wonderful it is to connect with others using the internet as a jumping off point,” says Madeline.
They say social people do well as Social Media liaisons, and therefore, it is no surprise that Madeline takes her gregarious personality and networking inclinations and applies them so well to the new marketing and tribe building environment we find online today.
“No matter where I am, my goals are always to help people meet, communicate, and succeed. We all have so much to bring to the table and to each other,” says Madeline.
Recently coming aboard with JDiData as the Integrated Marketing Director, Madeline will also be tapping into her creative side while expanding JDi’s online footprint through venues like Youtube.com “As an art photographer I have always enjoyed how much understanding seeing an image can bring,’ says Madeline. “Confucius told us how powerful a picture was – imagine what he would have thought of videos – with sound!”
Madeline loves to travel, “It’s all about meeting new people and seeing new things. And different ways of doing things. I even have a personal saying for that, ‘The world is a curious place.’” Besides photography, her interests include architecture, driving horses, collecting American Pie recipes, and blogging about all these things and more.
