Head of Marketing, Venngage
Upon realizing that her decision to pursue a theatre degree would lead to a life of little to no financial growth, Nadya decided to complete a Masters Degree in Digital Media.
Soon after that she began her work at Venngage Infographics, where she was told she would be trained in digital marketing en lieu of her lack of experience. Three years later and Nadya is still at Venngage wondering when she will get the training she was promised.
Eventually Nadya became obsessed will all things related to SEO and Content Marketing, and with the help of her team, managed to lead to an 800% growth in acquisition and monetization for Venngage, but she prefers to take sole credit for it when asked. Her co-workers have described her as “wildly unpredictable”, “a weirdo” and “bald”, all of which are true.
Nadya has written for and been featured on publications such as Forbes, The Next Web, Huffington Post, Entrepreneur, Mashable, Wired and CBC News.
