Jared received his Bachelor of Arts in Public Relations from Harding University, graduating as an Honors Scholar with Distinction. He started his career in the nonprofit sphere, working for a housing & healthcare nonprofit in Oklahoma as a public relations & digital communications assistant. He was able to work on a variety of projects. More than volunteer management, event scheduling, and writing press releases, he enjoyed the website upkeep and design tasks he had. This led to a digital marketing job at a private orthopedic & physical therapy practice in Manhattan & New Jersey. This role elevated his SEO skills to the point where he enjoyed and was more successful at it than his other tasks. He then joined an agency as a full-time SEO Specialist and has been doing SEO and search strategy since.
