Social Jargn: the digital word horizontal transparent logo

Attention is the new currency.

Conversations are happening, with or without you.

If content is King, then conversation is Queen.

Social media is a buzzword until you have a plan.

Social media marketing is an essential part of your practice and an imperative survival tool for your overall business – it doesn’t matter if you run a small, family-owned store in Small Town USA, operate a regionally renowned medical facility, or oversee an international company. You. Need. A. Social. Media. Presence.

Why is social media marketing so important? Here’s the shortlist: industry authority, credibility, customer loyalty, new patients, continued growth, improved customer experiences, more accurate customer insight, better search engine rankings… and a lot of other “techy” and marketing components like brand recognition, website traffic, door swings, peer-to-peer reviews, etc. which all translates into dollars and cents.

As your Social Media Translator, I strip down the jargon to explain social media marketing practices and concepts, then work in a strategic manner to maximize your social media marketing results based upon your business goals.

We don’t have a choice on whether we digitally transform. The choice is in how well we do it.

Social Jargn

Social Jargn is a boutique marketing agency specializing in social media marketing. Social Jargn can take care of your complete social media presence or work in tandem with your marketing team!

I’ve been on the client-side before. I know what it’s like to not get the value you’ve paid for or even the product you purchased! So I make it a point to deliver high quality. If you’re going to do something, do it right the first time – you know what I mean?

Packages are built based upon your needs and the workload – meaning custom pricing – and can vary on term length – meaning no contract options. A 60 minute free consultation is available for new clients. All you have to do is contact me to book a time and we will get started. No obligations! But I do appreciate you saying nice things about me to your business friends.


A common challenge many practitioners face is determining who will take over their social media marketing. With a busy, thriving office there’s very little time left to be spent on marketing. And “just anyone” won’t do.  Social Jargn has experience with HIPAA compliance as well as mitigating a globally viral vaccine/anti-vaccine online conflict. Entrust your practice with Social Jargn – the only social media agency that specializes in independent medical facilities.

My experience spans over 4 years working with medical professionals in the following specialties:



Addiction and Prevention

Fitness & Wellness

Functional Medicine

Mental Health


Business Professionals
