Team Bio Series — Linda Leewaye (The SEO Queen)
On this week’s episode of “Meet The Merchant Maverick Team,” we’ll be exploring the life and times of Linda Leewaye, our newest Maverick. Linda is an SEO expert and an Idaho potato who currently hangs out in sunny California. But what makes Linda Leewaye really tick? Let’s read on to find out!
Name: Linda Leewaye
Title: Digital Marketing Manager
Hometown: Boise, ID
Current city: Temecula, CA
Education and background: Bachelors in Communication, Emphasis in Public Relations, from Boise State University
Merchant Maverick department/specialty: Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
Proudest professional moment: Organizing an Aveda Earth Month Trashion Show charity event with my PRSSA group and donating the money to a clean water initiative for those who don’t have access to clean drinking water.
Favorite Merchant Maverick post/moment/opportunity: The opportunity to work with the friendliest people on the planet and work from anywhere is a dream come true.
What do you do when you’re not working?: Obsess over the latest superhero movie and play games with my friends.
What movie character do you identify most with and why?: Batman. In all honesty, I am not as cool as he is, I just wish I was! I appreciate his crazy ninja moves and detective skills to go with it…along with the billions of dollars from the Wayne family fortune.
Favorite song: Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin.
Favorite ‘80s movie: Raiders of the Lost Ark.
What is your ideal midnight snack?: Digging into a bag of Kettle Brand’s jalapeno chips
What skill have you always wanted to learn?: Playing the guitar
If you could travel to any time period to live forever, where/when would it be?: The Egyptian Era, so I could cure my innate curiosity of how the pyramids were built.
Mac or Windows?: Windows
You’re given an unlimited budget to travel. Where do you go? For how long?: I’d travel closer to the North Pole so I catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights! And after that, I’d go to every tropical island on the face of the earth to thaw out. Then, I’d backpack around Italy, Spain, and France, seeing as many cathedrals and monuments as I can. I’d love to travel as much as possible and for as long as possible — well, until I become unbearably homesick and miss the States!
We’re so pleased to have Linda on the team now — not only because her SEO skills are lifting us to new heights, but because it’s nice to have another superhero-loving geek in our posse. We look forward to many future hang-outs together, getting the Led out and watching a little pre-ruined Indiana Jones. Linda, you bring the Kettle chips.
