Dee Reinhardt
Social Media Strategist
Right-brained.  That is a good description of Dee Reinhardt.  If it has to do with creativity, she is all about that.  When social media advanced into the marketplace, Dee embraced it with a passion. Dee is a Type-A personality, energetic, gregarious, and extroverted, a planner and a leader.  As a marketing coordinator for a workforce development agency, her ?right-brain? kicked in with social media to help her develop new ways to reach out, new avenues to explore and new methods to exercise.   Dee became a social media strategist and is now the principal of her own company Time2Mrkt specializing in digital marketing for solopreneurs and small business.  She helps them plan, create, implement, and monitor their social marketing presence. Since coaching is one of her passions, it is only natural that she shares her knowledge with the community, teaching LinkedIn sessions, as well as, all the social media platforms to business owners and community members.
