Gillian Seely is AHA’s Marketing and Social Networking Guru. She came to us through our son Noah, with whom she worked in Boston. As two young professionals, they discovered that they had both been raised overseas—Noah in Asia, Gill in Germany—and that they missed the stimulation of the art, history, and differing cultures. Noah told Gillian all about AHA, and the next thing we knew, Gill and I were on the phone, practically finishing each other’s sentences.
Gillian drives traffic to the AHA website through FB, Twitter, and outreach emails to targeted organizations. Making connections nationwide with university alumni groups, non-competing travel sites, Italian cultural organizations, and newspapers, she works hard for AHA. She has been able to exchange the AHA link with some very well placed sites and get our website in front of many, many faces that otherwise might not have found it.
With a BA in English Literature from the University of London, and an MA in International Relations from the University of Oklahoma, Gillian has been in marketing and public relations, an account executive, has been an AP English instructor, an intern for CNN London, and is currently in marketing and communications for Pearson, the world’s leading learning company. Gillian also spent almost two years in the Philippines with the Peace Corps, and if that wasn’t interesting enough, she is fluent in both German and Visayan, a Filipino dialect.
Gillian is a HUGE part of our virtual team. She loves what AHA is all about and works very diligently to see that it is successful. Thanks Gillian, for all your hard work and for being part of the team!
