Liz OeltjenDirector of Client Strategy

Who am I?

I am the Director of Client Strategy at Seafoam Media. I like to joke that I am the woman behind the curtain, so pay no attention to me while I pull my levers and push my buttons.

I am the person that tries to weave together client goals, digital best practices and a touch of creativity into a smart, cohesive strategy that will yield dividends for our clients.

My Mission at Seafoam:

What are we going to do tonight, brain? The same thing we do every night… PLAN TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD! — My homage to Pinky and the Brain is only half facetious.

My mission at Seafoam is to build a company that dominates in the market, both for our customers and for our own brand. I know the value of a powerful message and a lot of hard work. My goal is to bring that value to everything we do.

Why I Love What I Do:

How do I love my job? Let me count the ways…

Where else could I combine my passion for marketing strategy, pop culture references and desire for world domination? As an added bonus, my co-workers love tolerate my random trivia and my tendency to break into song.

P.S. Did you know that the bones in bat wings are similar to finger bones? This means that bats literally fly through the power of jazz hands. Who says science is dull?

My Qualifications and Experience:

I have my bachelor’s degree in Communications and Journalism, which helps me hone my messaging without burying the lede. I have my Master’s degree in International Affairs, because the internet is making the globe smaller every day. I have worked in a myriad of industries, which have given me an interesting perspective on the world of business. Finally, I am a working mom, which helps me manage my time and prioritize what is truly important.

Why I Love Working at Seafoam:

Did I mention that my colleagues tolerate my love of spontaneous show-tunes?

In my freetime…

I spend a lot of time on the internet; this is both a good and a bad thing. The good thing is that I stay in tune with the latest trends, pop culture and social media that relate to my work. The bad thing is that between Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest, I am constantly trying out new hobbies and recipes – from furniture refinishing to crochet – all while listening to podcasts to keep my trivial knowledge on point.
