Brand Marketing Specialist
Brilliant. Remarkable. Spectacular. Modest. These are just some of the words used to describe Heather Skeoch, Brand Marketing Specialist. Part time sloth-enthusiast and proud owner of a functioning Rock Band setup, Heather joins the team with a year of marketing experience at Pfizer Consumer Healthcare under her belt. When she’s not busy using her keen analytical capabilities to come up with the perfect combination of emojis for a social caption, Heather spends her free time tracking important metrics like impressions and engagements across the dogs she sees when she walks to campus. Heather’s motto is “Follow your dreams”, which in practice means regularly convincing her friends and colleagues to indulge in a borderline-excessive amount of late-night McFlurries. Please do not hesitate to contact Heather with any questions, concerns, or potential dog-sitting opportunities.
