Ally founded Akari Digital so she could help small business owners take meaningful steps towards building strong, sustainable marketing strategies.
She has always loved learning, and in the early stages of her career, you'd find her taking endless online courses to learn a new marketing skill, and then testing out what she learned on projects for family and friends who had small businesses.
She loved how much of an impact she could make on small businesses that didn't have a full marketing team quite yet, and loved working with business owners who were so passionate about what they were doing and how it was making a difference in their communities.
In her 8+ years in the industry, she has worked in data analytics, website optimization, and search engine optimization (SEO), managed teams that included website developers, brand designers, paid ads specialists, social media strategists, and interns. Then, in 2019, she decided to build her own business so she could focus solely on serving clients she loves working with.
When she's not working, you might find her getting lost in the mountains, immersing herself in all things broadway (she's a self-proclaimed musical theatre dork), or winding down with her cat Dee and a cold IPA.

I probably listen to too many true crime podcasts
