Christina Throndson

VICE PRESIDENT Est. 2004 (319) 274-6594

Google Certifications: AdWords, Analytics, Mobile, Shopping & Video

The dominant voice in the office, Christina can be heard chatting with clients or talking about the funny things in life. Christina regularly attends conventions and conferences in order to keep the pulse of the search and social industries, her two loves. She is both certified in Google AdWords and Analytics which allow her to further enhance the exposure of clients’ websites. When she isn’t working or being social, Christina consumes her free time with her friends and family, or can be found curled up on her couch investing in the “lame” hobby of crocheting. And in case you require it, Christina can marry you, as she is an ordained minister.
