Working at UC Davis is a bit like coming home for Sallie, who is thrilled to return after being a student here 10-plus years ago. As our social media strategist, she is responsible for creatively engaging audiences in the stories that surround this great organization.

A UC Davis communications lecture first introduced Sallie to the complex relationship between the media and the public. Facebook and Twitter were just in their infancy, and bloggers had not yet conquered the Internet.

When this Aggie left UC Davis as an eager young professional, diploma in hand, she launched wholeheartedly into the new social media frontier. For the decade before joining UC Davis in 2015, she worked at global PR firms, consulting with national and global brands. She helped them embrace and transform their businesses by developing social-media strategy, content strategy and engagement campaigns.

Sallie lives in Sacramento with her husband, 2-year-old son and two crazy, little min-pin dachshund dogs.

Nerd fact

I am an avid reader of science fiction and fantasy novels, and I thank the digital gods for the invention of iPad books, which feeds my addiction.

How I avoid digital overload?

On the weekends you can typically find me rooting around my backyard garden with my son, tasting and harvesting veggies, and making homemade pasta sauce with wine in hand.

Three words that describe me

Optimistic. Curious. Adaptable.
