About Me

Hello there! My name is Savannah Hawkins. I have a B.A. in Communications from Brigham Young University. I am ACES certified in editing by Poynter University. I’ve been a social media professional since 2016 and I love cats.

Now that you know the technical bits, let me tell you a story about why I love social media and why I’ve turned a communication method into my career.

I started my social media journey with Facebook in 2008, when I was 14. It was a way to keep up with my brother while he was at college. I quickly learned how to make statuses that were very informative, as you can see below.

I would soon take my hot takes to Twitter in 2009. My Instagram account would appear shortly after Instagram was bought by Facebook in 2012.

Fast forward to February 2014. I was a single college student days away from my 20th birthday. I tweeted about #singlesawarenessday and my favorite candy brand responded. That was a new one! I never knew brand could–let alone would see me, an individual.

The end result of this little interaction was the Reese’s official account following me (to this day) and a box filled with candy. They earned my loyalty and ignited a flame that would start my obsession with social media as a career path. After learning that brands could make a difference by just listening to the comments of a few select demographic, I wanted to be apart of it.

While in college, I took every digital media and social media class I had available to me. I had a successful internship with a social media agency and used the tools I learned to help grow small businesses and keep their customers engaged and informed. Knowledge is power. Connection is heart.

After working for private clients for a number of years with social media as a side project, I am now ready to head face first into dedicating my time as a full time freelance social media manager and content creator. I want to use my expertise to help small businesses get their brand and mission to their followers and beyond. I can’t wait to grow with you.
