Kristen Marquis is an active member of the California Bar with a passion for, and knowledge of, Social Media. It began in law school, when she maintained the blog and website for a large Los Angeles law firm, posting blogs seven times a week and watching the firm fill up Google search result pages, thanks to her search engine optimized and key word targeted posts. Experiencing the benefits firsthand, she recognizes the strength of the world wide web and the value in building one’s name and business through a targeted web presence.
